What is your favourite food memory from childhood?
My childhood was simple and cool rather than kids these days have plenty of unhealthy food choices. I can still feel the Green chicken curry taste in my mouth prepared by my mom during Christmas when I was in really young.
Another memory is during the summer vacations. We used to eagerly wait for ice candy seller who used come on a bicycle. Hearing the sound of the ringing bell, we all kids used to run out to take our pick of ice candies in different colours. Those were the days and these candies were our OMG moments.

What’s your favourite comfort food?
Red rice porridge, chutney, fish fry, pickle and papad. Quite typical from where I come.

Your take on:
Keto diets – I have never tried the Keto diet. My knowledge about it limited to what I have read about it.
Intermittent fasting – Intermittent fasting doesn't change what you eat, but it changes when you eat. So if you eat a healthy meal and follow the time carefully, it definitely helps you to reduce weight in a month or so. I have tried this for a month.

Nuts, haldi, coconut, blueberry, Ragi, drumstick leaves and porridge.

How do you detox your body after an overdose of eating out?
I start with warm water and lime, have light breakfast, keep my body hydrated with water, tender coconut water and green tea. In the detox phase, I avoid dairy products, sugar, fried stuff and eat less carb food. I increase my intake of fruits, veggies, greens, soups or grilled fish which is good for the gut.

Any health foods you swear by?
Nuts, red rice porridge and fish.
