About Food & Health

Health & Yourself

What is important for you? 

I believe that with conscious living comes conscious eating. What you put in your body is part of your healthy conscious living.  As a parent, cooking food has been one of the important practice that I did along with everything else that was required for me to be high performing parent.

There is power & healing in food. Do not underestimate it!
