Lavender is a panacea for any ailment
Lavender is a panacea for any ailment. I always have a bottle of the essential oil at home that I use from anything from sunburn to a cold. I also love to use dried lavender leaves to make teas and desserts. Lavender:
is antibacterial, antimicrobial; important when fighting a cold or intestinal infection.
Thank you for your Vitamix Class! The miso avocado dressing is the bomb. And I’m up to my eyeballs in chia seed pudding. Can’t stop making it – all different ways. Chocolate, mocha, more sweet, less sweet, cinnamon/no cinnamon…. it’s too easy!
I learned so much [in your Meatless Monday class] and I’ve already made the pickles (love them), the sauce with spaghetti squash, the peas and onions, and I’ve already bought myself a rice cooker and use it almost every day. I would love to come to more classes!
Thank you again for a perfect night. The food was wonderful, you were fabulous, the company was great…the first time is an event. The second time is a tradition. This will become one in our house!
Much like all the best hostesses, [Elana] had an amazing energy that enabled us to feel relaxed and at home right away. Perfect environment to cook/learn/have fun in!
OMG…what has happened to me?!…Thank you Elana for such a great cooking class, delicious food and most of all, for the inspiration! You are awesome…If my husband has a heart attack tonight, you’ll know why—I cooked!
Thank you for encouraging us all to be better in the kitchen! I sure as shit am inspired to eat more vegetables, add more herbs to my dishes and cook more often! Can’t wait to recreate these recipes!

Hope you’ll come to Miami again soon. I’ve been making the recipes I learned at Kara’s class and I am actually enjoying it!!! Definitely keep me posted. I’d love to host something at my house next time.
This a milestone in my life. I have never been called a good cook. Ever. Tonight Jeremy said, “You are such a good cook!” – I cooked Maria’s chicken and healthiest veggies ever plus leftover sauce with pasta! Love you, Elana.
Thank you Elana for such an incredible meal & being such a generous, passionate and fun host! You almost have me wanting to start cooking (which is saying a lot, believe me).
