I am a Nutrition Geek. A formal education and work experience in Nutrition, Food Science, and Plant-based Dietary Ingredients has benefitted me in numerous ways. So, I thought, “Why not share what I know and practice with everyone?” Here it is…

The Plant-based Diet Blog

The aim of this blog is to help you with tried and tested Clean Eating tips, natural alternatives to processed foods, adulteration tests, and above all- how to stick to a clean eating diet.

Why The Plant-based Diet Blog?

I understand that following a healthy lifestyle is a dream for many people and that’s one of the reasons why I decided to write about plan-based diet. Following are some more reasons why I considered writing about this topic:

Information Overload

It can be frustrating to choose from a plethora of so-called ‘nutritional foods’ when we are not familiar with the terms and lack time and energy to sift through truck-loads of information. Especially, because we are mostly ordering it online. This blog is an attempt to serve you practical and easy-to-digest information.

Inflation

Now, coming to the cost factor, I see that most healthy foods are overly-priced. On the contrary, you can go for affordable, easily available, nutritious foods in your area. The place you live in is blessed with foods that are packed with the nutrition for people living there. So, acknowledge nature’s blessing and go for local produce.

Hype

There’s too much of noise about super-foods, imported foods, ready-to-eat or ready-to-cook foods. I feel it’s a must to have clarity on what exactly is being sold to us. Here, I can’t stress enough how important it is to read and understand food labels.

Adulteration

When I hear ‘adulteration’, the first thing that comes to my mind is- MILK. Gone are those times when we used to get pure cow’s milk. As nature- and animal-lover, it’s painful to see that cows are treated inhumanly. This in turn affects the milk quality. Commercialization has given rise to sub-standard milk quality.

Even though multiple brands are trying to address the issue, how do we as customers know the difference between pure and adulterated food? Or should I say it the Indian style- “Doodh ka Doodh, Paani ka Paani!

I can go on an on. But, I’ll keep it in store for fresh and detailed posts. 🙂

Over the years, I and my mother have been consciously striving to improve our cooking and eating style. This blog is a step towards sharing what we know with you. I sincerely hope you benefit from the information! 🙂

Thank you for reading thus far.
