A good cup of black coffee and a cigarette
A good cup of black coffee and a cigarette. I now don’t engage in either. Coffee doesn’t work for my system as I would get the jitters and could not function without it though it never really woke me up in the first place. Unlike cigarettes, coffee is not all bad. Coffee:
has more antioxidants than tea.
may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
stimulates brain activity.
has been shown in some studies to prevent Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and diabetes.
highly acidic which creates a pH balance that welcomes disease as well as an acidic stomach and heartburn.
beans are cultivated using high levels of pesticides – drink only organic.
can make you lightheaded or create a jittery mood.

I LOVED your cooking class Elana, and look forward to 1) cooking and 2) the next class!! You are so REAL and make healthy eating goals so much more manageable. THANK YOU!
Thank you for a wonderful class! You definitely inspired me to want to cook outside my normal flavors. I look forward to reading through your site and emails!
Better than Spago, Cecconi’s, or any other restaurant!
Thank you for this enlightening class! Delicious and fun. I so rarely cook fish – but am off to Citarella for a branzino for the kids today!
See you again soon.
Thank you for all the love & laughter you put in to our cooking class! It was a truly great night and I’m so appreciative of your passion and energy for food and your ability to bring people together!
Elana, thank you so much for last night! It was so much fun and I can’t wait to make the dinner for my hubby. He is the cook in our family and I can’t wait to impress him. You made it fun and not intimidating for all of us.

My husband couldn’t stop eating your Persian lamb meatballs! Your recipes make my whole family so happy. Thank you Elana
It was such an eye opening and amazing night. Your recipes are to die for. I can’t even imagine what else we can cook up with you! We’ll see you again!
