Since I was young my mother always told me "Beta, tumhara zindagi ek hira ki tharha he" which in Hindi means "Honey your life is like a diamond". It took me a while to understand what she meant by this but when I finally understood the value of this statement is when I knew dietetics was my calling.
You see, what my mom meant was that diamonds must be unearthed, chipped away at, and cut until you can see them sparkle. We all have our struggles and nutrition can be a major one. By virtue of the fact that we eat food everyday it is a large and constant challenge. I truly believe in helping people unearth their inner-diamond through the power of nutrition.

MY LATEST ADVENTURE
My latest adventure involves teaching a nutrition class at the Gayatri Chetna Center. This is a spiritual center and temple located in central New Jersey. Every Sunday I visit the center to administer nutrition counseling and conduct group lessons. For the class I create and teach materials that have been specifically curated for the South Asian population so that the nutrition education provided can have maximum impact. Our classes cover topics such as diabetes, general wellness, heart health, and weight-loss!
