Originally from India, I arrived in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, to start my own family after having a big fat Indian wedding. New country, new culture, new food, new education system, I wanted to explore it all.
Having earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from India, my first obvious step was to pursue my studies in a country that has one of the best higher education standards the world has to offer.
I got this golden opportunity to graduate with two masters’ degrees, first in Electronics System Engineering Technology and then in Material Science Engineering from Arizona State University. Working really hard and partying even harder, I never really cared about what I was eating, or for that matter feeding my body.
My faulty eating habits took a toll on my health and before I even realized it, I weighed 154 pounds, and at barely five feet tall, I had a Body Mass Indicator of 30.1. It was time for a serious change..
During my pursuit to find the best possible solution for my health, I pursued a number of Holistic Health courses and came across the wonderful world of green juicing.
Initially, I was appalled at the idea of drinking a glass of liquefied greens in the form of a juice. But I tweaked my recipes (that’s the part I love most about Juicing) to my taste buds and fell in love with this Nutritional powerhouse in a glass.
