I am Divya, currently living on the West Coast. I’ve been passionate about food and cooking since I was seven years old.
I love good nourishing food.
I was surrounded by a family very concerned about the quality of ingredients and always questioning what was actually going into the food we were eating.
I grew up being a skeptic about food (thanks mummy and papa!) and eventually about our food systems and the policies behind them.
At university I moved to Montreal and had easy access to a variety of ethnic grocery stores that sold vegetables directly from local farmers, bakeries that baked bread from sprouted amaranth, and organic meats.
It was a phenomenal time and I spent a vast majority of my free time in University cooking, learning about good ingredients, what my body likes, and wholesome food.
Food, ingredients, and cooking are a huge part of my life and I am excited to finally share this journey.
There’s a lot of advice out there about what you should eat and it can be daunting to sort through the evidence. My hope is to help you on that journey.
Different diets work for different people at different times. Select your meals from a place of presence and stillness.

I studied sociology at McGill University and grew up in the Canadian plains. (I will always be a prairie girl at heart!)
I’ve authored various articles in the past.
