RecipesAntioxidant Goddess Salad

Antioxidant Goddess Salad

I must admit that I’ve been extremely lazy with my blogs. Like anyone else, I was complacent in thinking that I’m doing enough, when someone close to me shone a mirror to my face and called me out on how I was just not doing enough! Anyway, the old me would have got upset and justified all the ways I felt I was overworked to her, but the new me decided to accept her kind words and get off my backside for the coming year! So look forward to an anti-inflammatory recipe for healing various systems every Tuesday and my blog every Thursday. Oh, and do write in to me if you have anything to tell me as well! Share your suggestions, what you would like to see and what’s really bothering you.

I’m thrilled to share the first recipe of 2019 as an Antioxidant Goddess Salad. I also want to tell you about a project I did last year. The O Terra Hotel in Bengaluru, is a gorgeous hotel located in Electronic City, with the most stunning view from the Infinity Pool. The O Terra team is rich with managers, chefs, consultants and staff who are passionate, dedicated and brimming with creativity. I must say that they obliged me and my madness as I went there with my food curating mission. If you’ve read the section on my website called Curating Therapeutic Diets, under Services, you’ll know that my mission with that was to support people suffering from various conditions. All over the world, there is an explosion of health crises, Autoimmunity, food sensitivities and more. The world is facing health challenges every day.  Many people try their best to eat what is healthy to them, but this is not always possible while eating out at restaurants or while travelling. Creating a small section on a menu to support therapeutic and healing diets is a step every hotel can take in showing the world that they care for each and every person out there. For I truly believe even those with health challenges love to eat out, why should anyone ruin 6 days of eating healthy at home with one evening out and that everyone deserves to eat the best cuisine, but not at the cost of their health.

The chefs at the hotel are extremely sensitive to bioindividuality, and it is one place you can go and still get something that works for you, whoever you are. They obliged my madness when I explained my thoughts, described what is an anti-inflammatory menu, what ingredients could go into supporting different systems, and how to curate a menu based on those parameters. I truly called these chefs my Charlie’s Angels! Anyway, inspired by my whole journey with them and pushed by my friend who thought I needed to do more than I was already doing, I rebooted my Phyto Bites, the section dedicated to anti-inflammatory recipes. Sign up to my newsletter if you would like to stay updated!

The Antioxidant Goddess Salad, is all about making you shine like a Goddess! This does not mean it is not for men! My husband loves it! The reason I named it a goddess Salad is another intention I have for the coming year, which I will share soon. Here’s the recipe! Remember that every recipe I post will be therapeutic, healing and supportive, mostly very simple to make, especially given the fact that most people who suffer from symptoms and conditions who need to eat anti-inflammatory might be very busy people. so I’m not trying to win chef of the year for sure! I’m trying to give you the simplest ways to begin your healing journey!

Thank you all for enjoying the Phytothrive journey. It’s time to say goodbye to it.

When Phytothrive began many years ago, my focus was purely on Functional Medicine, and I felt entrusted to share the knowledge of this in India, where it was quite unknown. Since then, I have gone through a process of unlearning and relearning, both professionally and personally.

I very much knew that the true essence of healing lies in India, the sacred land of yoga and Ayurveda. This inner discovery shed the light of needing to come back to the source where I began more than two decades ago, which was within the magical space of eastern ancient wisdom. I will be doing this on this very account which is now @ohahealth

Since then I have fully integrated Ayurveda and Functional Medicine, and my work has taken a new expression. I hope you will be with me and watch it unfold as Oha.

Oha is a word from The Rig Vedas, in Sanskrit with profound meanings including knowledge, excellence and the ability to bring things closer.

A new journey begins with this letting go and releasing, while embracing something new, and brings forth the promise of a whole lot more. I pray you will continue to be a part of this new journey!

Book Acquisition by HarperCollins India

Here’s that exciting news I spoke about to coincide with the one year anniversary of The Sleep Whisperer Podcast! Writing a book and becoming part of that magical group of authors is a dream!

Three years ago I wrote a book which I titled Sleep Whisperer, looking at sleep from a very in depth perspective, and tying together the cutting-edge science of functional medicine and eastern ancient wisdom. The story of how I wrote that book is indeed magical and a mixture of spiritual guidance and astrology(by my spiritual guide and mentor Shyam @himalayan.yogi ). It’s also been a lot of sacrifice and hard work during times that were stressful, challenging and testing in all ways.

The journey of the book from concept to acquisition is also a magical path which I will share much later. For now, I’m just humbled, grateful and quite simply excited to announce that the book has been acquired by Sonal Nerurkar @sonal_nerurkar of @harpercollinsin HarperCollins India! Sonal’s faith in the book has been unwavering and I’ll forever be grateful for it. I can’t wait for the final book release next year!

None of this would be possible without the trust, hard work, dedication and patience of my most beautifully warm literary agent Jayapriya Vasudevan @jayapriyavasudevan of Jacaranda Literary Agency. I cannot put into words what her belief in the book and being my warrior for it means to me.

I’m also deeply grateful for the dear colleagues and mentors who have made contributions to the book. That is a surprise for later! You can follow everything about the sleep podcast and book at @mysleepwhisperer
