Ayurvedic Living Secrets from Plant-Based Chef Radhi Devlukia-Shetty
Subscribe to Outside+ now to get unique access to all of our content, including sequences, instructor tips, video lessons, and much more. Radhi Devlukia-Shetty has received a direct message (DM) from one of her 1.2 million Instagram fans. “You’re in my city!” she exclaims as she reads the sign to me. My pals and I simply happened to run into you at lunch!” We’d just completed lunch at a hip vegan restaurant in Denver (she was “born vegetarian” but converted to veganism after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s New York TimesbestsellerEating Animals), when we were approached by two young people in their early 20s.
They are hoping to get a photo with him.
“We’re tremendous admirers of you and Jay,” the girls confide.
When they tied the knot five years ago, Jay was already well on his way to international acclaim as a television personality who spreads messages of hope and purpose through motivational messaging.
During the epidemic, she developed the latter as a means of communicating her mission and legitimizing the work she is doing throughout the world.
Even though it’s hard to tell from her videos, which are full of levity and energy while also displaying a strong sense of self, Devlukia-Shetty says she has only recently been able to let go of the constant nag of imposter syndrome in order to step into the true expression of her dharma: serving others by sharing her own gifts that she learned through her family heritage, nutrition and dietetics degrees, and Ayurvedic schooling.
Her insecurity as an adult may have stemmed in part from her experiences as a youngster, when she was tormented and taunted for her appearance: “I lacked self-awareness at the time.
“I didn’t have faith in my own talents or job.” “I’ve always thought that other people could do it better than I could.” She thought she was on the right track until a meditation teacher pointed out, “You know, we’re all just bridges.” “When I heard him say it, I thought to myself, ‘Wow, that’s really lovely.’ I don’t need to be an expert or the greatest at anything; all I need to be is a conduit through which others might benefit from what I’ve been lucky enough to experience.
While I cannot speak as an expert, I am present on the bridge with you to ensure that you are introduced to these ideas and that you are sent to an expert who knows more than I do.” She claims that when she began living that attitude, she felt confident in sharing what she’d learned with her online audience—as well as providing practical recommendations for individuals to apply it in their own lives—on the internet.

- The ancient Indian science of Ayurveda recommends that water be drank at room temperature when sitting down—and not within 30 minutes after eating.
- Gravity, according to Devlukia-Shetty, causes water to flood through the body without having a chance to nourish the organs and tissues.
- Drinking it at room temperature, ideally after it has been boiled, is the preferred method.
“Everyone is exclaiming, ‘Wow, it has made such a difference!'” she explains. Radhi shares a recipe with us: Roasted Rainbow Cauliflower with a Dressing of Tumeric and Tahini
Finding her footing
It is becoming increasingly frequent in modern culture (one research estimates that it may be experienced by as much as 82 percent of the population), yet Devlukia-Shetty has a wealth of knowledge in her fields, and she is surely not lacking in education in her field. Growing up in an Indian household outside of London, she was exposed to traditions that prepared the road for her love affair with Ayurveda, which she will become qualified in in 2020 after years of study. The principles of Ayurveda were already strongly ingrained in her upbringing; she simply didn’t understand it was known as such at the time.
- In the past, if I was sick, my mother would give meashwagandha hot water, and now I understand why.
- “I’m the youngest of three children in my family,” she explains.
- Devlukia-Shetty outsourced a number of decisions before discovering her own unique voice.
- As someone who has always enjoyed eating and cooking, her mother’s offer seemed like the logical next step for her.
- When she decided she wanted to work with patients in a hospital or other clinical setting, she realized she’d have to earn a second degree in dietetics in order to be able to practice.
- She and Jay began dating shortly after that.
- Our foundation ended up being based on spiritual connections rather than things like, ‘Oh, he looks good in this jacket.’ It was a fantastic experience.” He used to wear robes all the time!’ It was almost as if all of the layers had been taken away.
Prior to their relationship, Jay worked with Devlukia-Shetty on a fundraising event.
At Watford General Hospital, she was excelling in her role as a nutritionist.
Shetty’s Her main request when she and her husband were married was that she be able to live close to her mother and sister.
“For the majority of our dating relationship, Jay and I spent much of our time at my parents’ house.” They invited their closest friends to a housewarming celebration to celebrate their new home.
Only a handful of boxes remained, ready to be unloaded and sorted.
Jay accepted the position.
Despite his displeasure with his wife’s situation, Jay felt sympathetic.
As she describes it, “I went through three days of quiet, not talking to him about it, since that is how I process things.” “After that, I purchased New York City skyline bed coverings, which I simply draped over my bed.
In response, he inquired as to if this implied that New York will be transported to London. Alternatively, does this imply that we’ll be visiting New York?’ When I found out we were heading to New York, I was overjoyed.
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
Devlukia-Shetty first learned about Ayurveda while living in Manhattan. Because she was unable to pursue employment while on a spouse visa, she found herself traveling about the city alone, frequenting health food stores and researching the contents on food labels while feeling extremely depressed and hopeless. “When I arrived in New York, I discovered that I didn’t know anything about myself at all. As she recounts, “it was incredibly frightening for me at first, spending a lot of time with someone who was a stranger—how that’s I felt about myself, which was much worse than if it was another person.” Furthermore, she wasn’t quite confident in her own self-esteem at the time.
- In the midst of meeting new people and saying nice things to them, my thoughts wasn’t talking kind things about them at all.
- That duality didn’t sit well with me.
- When your ideas, words, and actions are all in sync, you are displaying true integrity.
- Writing it helped me train my mind and see which weeds I was cultivating by allowing negative ideas and energies to enter my consciousness.
- Her favorite things about them were “their energy, how secure they were in themselves, and how much love they were radiating out to everyone around them,” she adds.
- In her yoga teacher training (YTT), Devlukia-Shetty says she was reminded that life is about service, which she believes helped her realize her purpose.
“Nothing compares to the delight that comes from serving others.” Divya Alter, an Ayurvedic instructor and restaurateur whom she’d met via the Bhakti Center, where her YTT was taking place, came to mind, as did the food she was making and her new friend, who she’d met through the Bhakti Center, where she was doing her YTT.
- “I implored her, ‘Just give me the opportunity to be your assistant.'” I’d want to learn something from you.
- I was approached by Radhi, who said that she worked as a nutritionist and that she enjoyed cooking.
- ‘Yeah, that’s OK,’ I responded.
- “We grew closer and were like sisters.” She was a model of modesty.
- The cooperation lasted for a total of two years, with periods of inactivity.
- Despite how much she’d previously learned about food and Ayurveda, she was plagued with self-doubt, which convinced her that she wasn’t competent to share her expertise with the rest of the world.
- “It’s been a pleasure to see Devlukia-Shetty find her footing and use her gifts to provide joy and knowledge to so many others,” Jay says.
“She did all of the work alone,” she says. Check out this related article: Introduction to Ayurveda: Understanding the Three Doshas Add These 12 Ayurvedic Healing Foods to Your Diet to Improve Your Health 3 Refreshing (and Simple!) Ayurvedic Recipes to Keep You Cool This Summer
My Pantry Essentials: How an Ayurvedic Chef Makes Cooking Easier (and More Thoughtful)
Radhi Devlukia, a British Ayurvedic chef, was found on Instagram by us: Chef Devlukia makes cooking appear lively, fun, and really tasty in her video recipes for iced tahini matcha lattes, grilled turmeric fennel, and Japanese squash burgers (many of which are set to music and include TikTok-inspired dancing breaks), among other dishes. She claims that there is a secret to it: you must be present. In addition to designing the cuisine at the vegan restaurant OmNom in London, Devlukia, who now lives in Los Angeles with her husband, routinely makes plant-based Ayurvedic-inspired dishes for a variety of platforms, including her website, and contributes to other publications.
- As a child, I was raised in a Hindu family in London, where my mother and grandmother were both amazing chefs.
- Despite the fact that I became pretty overweight when I was younger, I ultimately reached a point where I desired to be healthy.
- Her experience was “amazing,” she recalls, “because she learned how specific foods respond so differently in different bodies.” Devlukia graduated with honors from the Ayurvedic Health Counseling program last year.
- “Everything we do, from eating to cooking to how we prepare our vegetables, can have an impact on our digestion.” Intention is key when it comes to eating: If you’re distracted while eating, chatting a lot, or thinking about anything nasty, all of that might have an impact on your digestion.
- It’s nutritious to have that frame of mind when I’m preparing food.” Devlukia believes that having all of the proper tools on hand creates room for mindfulness; here are some of her favorites.
- On Instagram, we came across Radhi Devlukia, a British Ayurvedic chef. Chef Devlukia makes cooking appear vibrant, fun, and really tasty in her video recipes like iced tahini matcha lattes, grilled turmeric fennel, and Japanese squash burgers (many of which are set to music and include TikTok-inspired dancing breaks). Her secret, she claims, is simple: be present in the moment. In addition to designing the cuisine at the vegan restaurant OmNom in London, Devlukia, who now lives in Los Angeles with her husband, routinely develops plant-based Ayurvedic-inspired dishes for several platforms, including her website. According to her, cultivating her attitude takes years. Her interest in cooking began when she was a child, and she has continued to enjoy eating ever since. As a child, I was raised in a Hindu family in London, where my mother and grandmother were both amazing chefs. Food was always at the heart of every celebration, whether it was a holiday or a birthday. I gained a lot of weight when I was younger, but finally reached a point where I desired to be in a more healthy state. My intuition told me that there has to be a method for food to cure my body without requiring me to exclude any foods or starve myself of anything.” Having studied nutrition in college, Devlukia began focusing on Ayurvedic medicine around seven years ago. According to her, “It was just wonderful to understand how certain meals respond so differently in various individuals.” Ayurvedic health counselor Devlukia obtained her degree in the field last year. The concept that everything we do, from eating to cooking to how we prepare vegetables, can have an impact on our digestion, sometimes even more so than what we eat, struck a chord with her. “Everything we do, from eating to cooking to how we prepare our vegetables, can have an impact on our digestion,” she says. Intention is key when it comes to eating: If you’re distracted while eating, chatting a lot, or thinking about anything bad, all of that can have an impact on your digestion.” Because of this, I make it a priority to include conscious eating practices into my meals. Having that frame of mind when I’m cooking is very nutritious for me. A well-stocked toolkit, according to Devlukia, makes it easier to practice mindfulness. Here are some of her favorite tools for the job.
- “According to Ayurveda, bananas can cause a lot of mucus production, therefore I use avocado as a basis to make smoothies that are thick, creamy, and rich in flavor. A recipe with raw cacao, avocado, and almond butter that is extremely rich and thrilling may be found on my website, as can another that mixes avocado, coconut flesh, and pineapple for a more tropical treat. Items that are served ice-cold might cause digestion to slow down. I understand that some people like frozen fruits in their smoothies, but you can also use fruits that are already in your fruit basket or refrigerator. “The no-ice concept is a wonderful principle to live by.” Vitamix $1,500

- Using a large wooden chopping board is necessary since things constantly seem to roll down the edge of the smaller ones. When the colors of the food are transferred to a wooden chopping board, it gives the impression of being used, yet in a delightful rustic way. “It’s a pleasing sight.” Goop’s Wooden PalateLip Cutting Boardgoop is available for purchase now for $535.
- “It’s fantastic with cheese, carrots, and beets.” Salads can be difficult to digest at times, however shredding tougher veggies makes them more digestible.” The MicroplaneBox Gratergoop costs $40 and is available for purchase right now.
- “I started using a zester for baking a couple of months ago, and it has completely transformed my baking experience. The zest of a fruit, such as a lemon, lime, or orange, has greater potency and taste than the actual fruit. The orange cashew coconut cream that I make goes well with a lot of the desserts that I prepare. I also use lemon zest as a decorative element
- As I dry it, the color only intensifies.” The MicroplanePremium Classic Zestergoop only $15, and you can get it right now.
- “I don’t enjoy wasting food in any way.” When I would prepare a sauce or take anything out of a Tupperware container, my mother would comment, ‘You left so much in there—enough there’s for another complete serving!’ she was right. She instilled in me the need of using a spatula to scrape out every last scrap of food from a food processor, blender, or pan since I was a child. Obtain a range of sizes: “The slender ones are excellent for removing smoothies from blenders.’ Shop now for the RIG-TIG from SteltonPastry Spatulagoop, which costs $19 USD.
- ‘I personally adore GreenPan because nothing clings to them, they’re lovely, they have such a clean finish on the inside and beautiful colors on the exterior, and they’re non-toxic because the coating is produced from sand.’ If you’re going to make an investment in anything, make it an excellent set of pans.

SHOP RIGHT NOW
- Having a kettle on the stove gives me a nostalgic feeling. In the mornings, when I first wake up, I drink a mug of hot water with a pinch of freshly cracked black pepper added to it. It is quite beneficial in stimulating my digestion. The fact that you can start your day with it is a wonderful thing—my it’s morning pick-me-up.” SHOP NOW for StaubKettlegoop, which costs $180.
- “In my kitchen, I have three spice cabinets packed with different kinds of spices. I prefer to get them in their original state
- Even my black pepper is whole peppercorns to give it a stronger flavor. I also use cardamom powder in my smoothies from time to time. It’s yet another step, but I’m making an effort to be there for each and every stage of the preparation. The availability of everything today is fantastic if you’re short on time, but I still enjoy seeing spices in their entirety and dissecting them for my own enjoyment. It also has a more traditional feel to it—more it’s like how my forefathers would have done things.”
A date stuffed with almond butter and dark chocolate is my go-to sweet treat whenever I’m in the mood for something sweet.
- 1 cup nut butter (almond butter, cashew butter, pistachio butter, sunflower-seed butter, chopped nuts, etc.)
- 15 to 20 Medjool dates are recommended. 12.2 ounces of dark chocolate or monk fruit chocolate

- 2. Fill with almond butter (or whatever filling you want) using a small spoon or your fingers

Conscious Cooking: How Radhi Devlukia-Shetty is Making her Own Brand of Spirituality, Mindful Living and Ayurveda
The name Radhi Devlukia-Shetty may not immediately come to mind, but the 31-year-old British Indian, who now calls the United States home, has been sharing inspiring content on Instagram for quite some time. The culinarian, Ayurvedic virtuoso, dietician, and mindful-living developer delivers delectable plant-based recipes, clean-beauty routines, wellness videos, life lessons, and mantras to encourage a healthy lifestyle through her social media channels, YouTube channel, and website. Jay Shetty is a British Indian author and purpose coach who is best known for producing the podcast “On Purpose.” Her daily updates and tales include footage of her singing and dancing as well as nice moments with her husband, Jay Shetty.
In this way, cooking with love and dedication, and saying a small prayer before serving the meal, is such a wonderful caring activity that may provide nourishment not just for the body, but also for the mind and the spirit.” During the epidemic, Devlukia-Shetty built the website as a method to share information on how to heal your body, mind, and spirit via culinary creation.
“I do not represent myself as a ‘chef,’ nor have I had any formal instruction to do so,” she states on her website.

The Power of Meditation
As a result of her childhood trauma, Devlukia-Shetty discovered the benefits of meditation and spiritual healing, and she was able to connect with her spouse as a result of these practices. Because she had been tormented and teased for her appearance, she “developed into an insecure adult,” according to her interview with Yoga Journal. “I lacked self-awareness at the time. “I’ve never felt like I know enough about anything to be able to teach it,” she confesses. “I didn’t have faith in my own talents or job.” “I’ve always thought that other people could do it better than I could.” As a result, she began modifying her life to meet the expectations of everyone around her in order to blend in and be liked.
- She’d been up in a spiritual family, but she hadn’t really gotten in touch with her spirituality until she started incorporating meditation into her daily practice, as she explained to Yoga Journal.
- She told the magazine Ecco Coco that, despite the fact that she had witnessed her mother and grandmother “exercise their spirituality with such passion and faith throughout my childhood,” she had not yet felt a personal connection to it herself.
- She would arrive to the meditation center at 4.30 a.m.
- ‘If I really want to know what it’s like, I have to immerse myself in it for a while to see if it’s worth it,’ she said in an interview with Coco Ecco.
- “What is life if it is not lived in service?” she asked the magazine.
Love for Cooking
Devlukia-Shetty was raised in an Indian household outside of London, where she acquired a passion for cooking. “My grandmothers, my mother, my father, and my sister have all inherited some significant culinary abilities,” she says on her website. She was 18 when she enrolled at Nottingham University to study nutrition on the advise of her mother, who was and continues to be her most important influence. However, she admits that she never looked into the other employment opportunities available to her with that degree.
- Devlukia-Shetty was also unwittingly introduced to Ayurveda while at home with her family.
- “It was only that I didn’t aware it was named “Ayurveda.” “Whenever I was sick, my mother would give meashwagandha in hot water, and now I realize why she did it.
- The ability to include the spices and therapeutic elements she grew up eating into the food that people in the United States are accustomed to is “absolutely amazing,” she added.
- The couple, however, moved for New York and eventually Los Angeles just three weeks after settling in their new home.
“I’m making my breakfast while my mother is making her lunch, and we’re always on the phone with each other,” she told Coco Eco Magazine. “I contact her for everything, and she’s actually turned into one of my greatest friends,” says the author.
It was only after relocating to the United States that Devlukia-Shetty became properly acquainted with Ayurveda. She met Divya Alter, the proprietor of an Ayurveda restaurant in New York City, and they became fast friends. She started working as an apprentice in Alter’s kitchen. The cooperation lasted for a total of two years, with periods of inactivity. She also began studying for her Yoga Teacher Training certification around this time. She was unable to complete it, however, since she and her husband relocated to Los Angeles in July of this year.
- As a result, she earned her Ayurveda Health Counselor certification from the California College of Ayurveda last year.
- She told Ecco Coco that it fed not only her body but also her mind and spirit.
- ‘It’s all about cultivating a habit of aware eating and thoughtful cooking, and the culmination of that practice is a thankfulness prayer,’ says the author.
- Making time for mindful eating and cooking should be a part of your daily routine.” “It’s all about finding pockets of time in your day when you can practice mindfulness.”
The Jay Shetty Influence
Jay’s profound spirituality drew Devlukia-Shetty to him, and it is this that serves as the cornerstone for their growing connection. She was the first guest on her husband’s podcast, “On Purpose,” when it was originally established. She returned to the show to celebrate the show’s first anniversary. On the broadcast, she said that she was awestruck by Jay’s talent. “I was really taken aback by him. He also had an extremely amazing appearance since he had a bald head. Because he had tattoos and a bald head, he didn’t appear to be the sort of guy who would be thinking about these things, but he was dressed in robes, so it was possible.
- Jay’s rigorous job, on the other hand, meant that the pair didn’t get to enjoy their honeymoon until August 2019.
- On December 27, 2020, Devlukia-Shetty shared a photograph with the caption: “Make someone laugh or smile today.
- as well as YOU, @jayshetty.
- LEAVE IT TO ME TO TELL YOU AAALLL.
- “I consider myself really fortunate to be able to witness how he lives his life on a daily basis,” she added.
- “We go through so many emotions in our lives, and we experience so many ups and downs, and we normally strive to remain in the ups, and we feel really thrilled when we’re excited, but when we’re in the lows, we become sad and depressed,” she said.
- It’s a state of calm.
- In a previous year’s post, she announced that her “AMAZING wife” had created her own YouTube channel.
My admiration for what she is doing comes from her genuine desire to share happiness and assist others.”
Life Lessons and Mantras
It is Devlukia-lovely Shetty’s and vivacious personality, as well as her daily doses of gyaan and videos, that draw her devotees to her social media channels and keep them there. According to Yoga Journal, one of her “most popular” videos is a demonstration of the proper method to drink water. Ayurvedic principles dictate that water should be drank at room temperature while sitting down—and not within 30 minutes of a meal, as she explains in the video. The National Institutes of Health explains that when you drink standing up, gravity forces water to flood through the body, leaving little time for it to feed the organs and tissues.
- “It’s difficult to hear, but it’s real,” she says in a recent piece.
- Consider the implications of it.” ‘If you find yourself starting to evaluate others more, paying more attention to their flaws, inadequacies, and shortcomings.’ according to another article.
- Making judgments on others becomes a type of diversion from the important task that has to be completed.
- The weather might be sunny with a sprinkling of rain on some days.
- Remember that you are always radiant, no matter what the weather.” “If you have been injured, choose forgiveness; if you have been mistreated, choose compassion; if you have been deceived, choose loyalty; if you have been damaged, choose to mend.”
Creating a Conscious Revolution
The spiritual and Ayurvedic journey of Devlukia-Shetty has taken her a long way, and she is well on her way to igniting a conscious revolution with her vivacious and effervescent energy. But that’s not all there is to it. She is also working on bringing environmentally friendly fashion into her portfolio. She has collaborated with vegan business Samara to produce an ultra-chic travel bag, the Radhi Weekender, as well as a necklace that she has designed. Her future goals include the publication of a cookbook.
That is absolutely my objective, to attempt to reach as many people as possible with the information I have been fortunate enough to have.”
Are You Ayurvedic? You Could Be, Easily and Deliciously. Here’s How.
Ayurvedic chef Radhi Devlukia-Shetty discusses cleaning foods and beverages that will enable you to refresh, heal, and regenerate your body and mind. The bougainvillea petals are blown over the terrace by a soft breeze that blows through the house. On the crest of the Hollywood Hills, we’re at Radhi Devlukia-tranquil Shetty’s home complex, where she practices Ayurvedic cookery and health. The Hollywood sign towers above us, and Lake Hollywood glistens in the distance. Radi cooks kitchari while the fragrance of toasted coriander and fennel fills the air outside her home.
- Today, she’s putting up a menu of meals that are brightly colorful, strongly seasoned, deeply gratifying (some might say indulgent)—and that also happen to be vegan and extremely, extremely healthy.
- Radhi has been practicing Ayurveda for over a decade.
- Nature had an important role in it as well—you may travel an hour here or an hour there and see a lot of beautiful scenery.
- However, it does not occur without frequent and conscious consideration and approach.
- awaken, stretching, self-massage, and an eight-stage meditation session, even the most dedicated student of morning routines could find it difficult to keep up with Radhi’s schedule.
The chilly season is coming to an end, and we’re entering the warmer season.” Because Ayurveda is a preventative medicine, you must be aware of what is about to happen.” This is because warming spices such as ginger and mustard seeds help moderate the chill of winter and cleanse anything that has collected over the course of the season, as well as prepare the body and mind for the warmer months to come.
Those spices also lend themselves to dishes and beverages that are both comforting and energizing: a ridiculously simple detoxifying CCF tea (which is an abbreviation for coriander, cumin, and fennel), a springy minty zucchini soup, and super-pretty chocolate Ojas balls that are loaded with adaptogenic herbs.

Zucchini Mint Soup
“If spring were to manifest itself in the shape of a soup, I am confident that it would taste somewhat like this.” With and without the pistachios, and with and without the fennel, I’ve tried this recipe several times. You may make this soup with any vegetables you happen to have in your refrigerator since it’s a highly adaptable recipe.” 2of5 Thomas J. Story is an American author and journalist who lives in New York City.
CCF Ayurvedic Tea
The tea is a well-known Ayurvedic remedy that assists digestion, enhances nutrient absorption, and aids in detoxification of the body. ‘CCF’ is an abbreviation for coriander, cumin, and fennel. 3of5 Thomas J. Story is an American author and journalist who lives in New York City.
Kitchari, which literally translates as “mixing,” is an ancient Indian cuisine that is frequently provided to you when you’re feeling a little under the weather or ill. When I was younger and it happened to be kitchari day, I would throw a fit and be quite enraged at the situation. But now I make it almost three times a week, which is a record for me. It is said to be the “mother of all foods” in Ayurveda because the lentils and rice combine to form a complete protein, the vegetables (although not traditionally included in kitchari) offer vitamins and minerals, and the spices cleanse the body.

Almond and Coconut Cashew Ojas Balls
These lovely, chocolate-dipped, spiced balls may appear to be dessert, but they are actually packed of adaptogens, have a robust flavor, and may be consumed as an energy-boosting snack. Make sure to use natural almond butter that has been separated from its oil and is a little crumbly in order to make rolling the balls a little simpler. Ashwagandha, sometimes known as “Indian Ginger,” is a pungent adaptogen that is supposed to help people cope with stress. Dark chocolate with 70 percent cacao content will provide a hint of sweetness.

Radhi Devlukia- Shetty AHC
Hello, hello, hello! Okay, so let me break it down for you quickly. Food is one of my favorite things. I was raised in an Indian family, which means that food and the desire to eat are at the heart of pretty much everything I know and love. The fact is that it is virtually a part of our genetic constitution! I was raised as a vegetarian and come from a family of amazing cooks; my grandmothers, my mother, my father, and my sister have all developed impressive culinary abilities. Growing up, we were exposed to a variety of cuisines from throughout the world.
One day I thought to myself, “How can I make a living entity who can talk about food, enjoy food, and be surrounded by food all of the time without it being weird?” I went to university to study nutrition and dietetics, with the assistance of my mother (who, by the way, has been and continues to be the most significant influence on all of my finest decisions in life).
- The truth is, I grew up in Britain and never intended to leave.
- IT WAS ONLY FOR THREE WEEKS, and suddenly everything changed.
- it has taken us on an incredible, crazy, wild, and fantastic experience that has brought us to New York City and now Los Angeles.
- Earlier this month, I received my Ayurvedic Health Counselor certification from California College of Ayurveda.
- With all of this life-changing information at my fingertips, I am overjoyed to be able to share it with you all.
- It is my preference to use seasonal vegetables and foods that are available where I live, but I also enjoy incorporating the spices and tastes of the east to spice up your life (pun intended)!
- Vedic tradition holds that the attitude, thought, and energy of the person who cooks is poured into the food, which is then absorbed by the one who consumes it.
- Hopefully, these recipes will be enjoyed by you, and that the practice of conscious cooking will turn your kitchen from a place of cooking into a place of sustenance in all aspects of your life, as it did in mine.
- PS: I make no claim to being a “chef,” nor have I received any formal training in the culinary arts; I simply like food, and serving others brings me great delight.
In the words of my spiritual teacher Radhanath Swami, “Knowledge or talents are meaningless unless they are shared,” and so this is simply my small way of sharing what I’m learning with you all:). With heartfelt thanks and appreciation, Radhi x Radhi
