About

Anjali Prasertong / Eat Your GreensMy name is Anjali and I’m a food writer, 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.

Two years ago 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.

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).

I am also a contributing editor to the home cooking blog The Kitchn. You can read all of my posts here.

I live in Los Angeles, with my very funny husband and our two very funny pets: Milhouse the cat and Goblin the dog.

Welcome and thanks for reading!
