When I started practicing as a dietitian 10 years ago, I created treatment protocols by applying basic principles of the Ayurvedic system of culinary medicine where the focus is on healing and nourishing body and mind by eating natural and wholesome foods. The concept was innovative and considered radical at that time but has proved effective. My passion for wholesome food is evident by my ability to create recipes using in-season and natural ethnic ingredients that fit into one’s daily lifestyle. I uniquely blend both the Eastern and Western principles of nutrition to achieve optimal health.
I have seen thousands of patients in clinical practice. Based on the available research findings, I realized that when patients were encouraged to eat plant-based diets high in legume, their gut health improved.
