"I  want to tell you something I think about often. And I know people tell you this but it is a truth. Your work is incredible Elaina, other people don't see what you see. Tayler and I talk about it all the time. Your teachings, your food principals are years beyond the mainstream, they are just starting to catch on. There is so much longevity in what you know it's really important.

It's amazing, many "healthy" places are opening up in the city but they don't get it, and people eat my food, it's all made to your culinary academy standards, and they feel so good! They can't believe how good they feel. Everyday someone wants to tell us about how the food makes them feel. It's great.

Anyway I hope you know how important you are, I've said this before and I'll say it again, the world is better because you're here.

Wow clearly I've missed you. I wasn't expecting to get mushy :)"
