My name is Anjali and I’m a food writer, new mom, former personal chef and current graduate student studying to be a registered dietitian.
I’m obsessed with vegetables and the recipes I share here are what I like to cook at home: healthy, economical, mostly vegetarian meals that are easy to prepare at the end of a long day of work or school.
In 2012 I left my job as a personal chef to start a masters program in Nutrition at California State University Northridge, with the goal of becoming a registered dietitian. Thanks to my undergraduate degree in film production (read: no science classes), it’s a long road, but I’m loving it.
Last summer life got a little more complicated when, just a few weeks after our son was born, my husband was cast as a series regular on NCIS: New Orleans and we had to move from Los Angeles to New Orleans. I’m still figuring out life in the Crescent City and am constantly on the lookout for veggie-centric restaurants and resources nearby. (Have a tip? Drop me a line!)
I fell in love with food and cooking while living in Japan and teaching English to high school students through the JET Programme (Gifu-ken, 2005-2007).
Welcome and thanks for reading!
