Hi, I’m Meera. Mom of two and wife to a great guy. I live and work a bicostal life between Northern California and NY/NJ. Don’t ask me how or why, we just make it work. I love to eat and thus love to cook recipes that are delicious, balanced and healthy. The recipes here on my blog are inspired and influenced by mother, global cuisines, great chefs, cooks, our world travels, cookbooks, and other food blogs.
First and foremost, Nutrition. I educate myself constantly about nutrition, new research, myths and the science behind food. Secondly, Imgredients. Again education and awareness. I consciously choose quality over quantity of ingredients, where my food comes from, what does for me, my family and our planet. I watch for things like sustainability, ethical practices, also refined sugars, saturated, trans fats, salt, dairy and refined grains. Things that adversely affect my health, the Earth and the sea.
This blog is not strict with any dietary limitations, my recipes are wholesome and mostly plant-based with a sprinkle of sweets, dairy and sustainable fish. I am human and believe in treating myself time to time.
I have been cooking for over two decades. You will see my love for Indian food in my recipes, that’s because it’s the food of my childhood, my heritage. Food I learned from who I believe master cooks: my mother and grandmother. The recipes here may not be authentic, that’s because I love to improvise, play with fusion and make it my own. Then again I also believe when something is perfect it’s best not to messed with!
Do something good today for yourself and others!
