More about Shobha
Having been born and raised a vegetarian in India, Shobha has been adept at consuming plenty of vegetables, fruits, legumes and grains from a very young age. However her diet included dairy and small amounts of eggs, as popular with most vegetarians.
When her daughters watched the movie Food Inc. in High School and decided to give up all animal products, Shobha set forth to do her own research about the pros and cons of removing animal products from their diet. Her pursuit led her to evidence based scientific research and published peer reviewed articles in major medical journals about the power of plants to reverse and reduce risk of chronic lifestyle illnesses, like Diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease, Arthritis, Auto-Immune Diseases, and many more.
Shobha switched her diet to a Plant Based Nutrition plan and found that her energy and vigor as well as mental focus and concentration was greatly improved. Her family reaped the same benefits. Her husband and 75 year old mother too saw their pain from arthritis diminish, small aches and pains in the joints disappear, energy levels improve, and began to live more vibrant, active, productive lives.
From enjoying such major health benefits, Shobha was motivated to help others reap similar benefits.She earned a certification in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University through the T Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. She is also certified to teach cooking classes with emphasis on nutritive value of food through the FOOD for LIFE Program offered by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
Shobha offers monthly classes to showcase adopting this way of eating. She is currently offering cooking demonstrations, informational nutrition classes, public speaking, and private and family consultations. Shobha educates, and helps people regain their health through food. Please contact her for a speaking engagements or a series of classes for your organization or group.
