How I Transformed My Life?



7 Years ago on a frigid winter morning in January, little did I know that my life was about to transform dramatically! It was my first day at Institute for Integrative Nutrition ("IIN"). Today I had the privilege of going back to school, IIN, for a live event at Avery Fisher Hall! As I entered the Time Warner Building, I started feeling happy and excited! The energy in a room full of 1,000+ health coaches cannot be described, but has to be experienced!  Endorphins are released!  One just wants to freeze time and stay in the present moment and savor it.

At IIN I learned different diet theories, I was supported by colleagues and mentors and learned from world-renown experts in the holistic field. I addressed my own health issues and share my knowledge to help others. Today I am gluten-free and dairy-free and it's with the support I received from my colleagues at IIN that I was able to smoothly transition into this lifestyle. Most importantly, I learned to love and accept myself and that it's okay to just be me, I am perfect the way I am.

The Universe favored me today, in the elevator going up, someone asked if I was going to be speaking, and in my mind I recollected how one of my goals has always been to speak on stage at IIN - couple of minutes later, my teacher/Guru, Joshua Rosenthal, passed me the mic!! I got up in front of the audience and shared my enthusiasm and excitement for being there. 



I am ever so grateful for what I have learned from IIN. If you would like to learn more about IIN or experience the IIN Live Event which is going on this weekend, click here IIN Live Event

Thank you Universe and IIN for making me feel so special, never have 1,000+ people applauded to wish me Happy Birthday!


With light and love,
Jyoti
IIN Ambassador

Our Lady of Good Health, Vailankanni

Attendees of the Healing Retreat for Caregivers at St. Emeric's Church in Manhattan today were truly blessed with powerful talks and healing by Father Halbing and the beautiful presence of Chad Gatchalian's Holy Statue of Our Lady of Good Health, Vailankanni.  Chad has got this Holy Statute all the way from India.  She joyfully shares Our Lady, also known as the "Lourdes of the East," with congregations at various places of worship throughout the country.

Apparitions of Our Lady of Vailankanni ("Virgin of Velai") first occurred in the 16th Century.  To read more about the interesting history, click here.  For more information on the Basilica for your next trip to India, please visit vailankannishrine.org

The New Kick in My Block

Did you know that this is the original Sriracha? Mrs. Chakkapak created it in her kitchen in Si Racha, Thailand, for her family and friends. See article from Bon Appetit by Andrea Nguyen.

I came across this chopstick-licking sauce, which is hot, yet slightly sweet, during my trek to the Thai Grocery Store. I prefer it to the sweet chili sauce with loads of pepper seeds. Sriraja has the right kick! What I especially appreciate is that it is free of preservatives and artificial coloring and has no msg!  Can't wait to dig in to my bowl of noodles!

Bon app├ętit!

Can Can Night

Do you struggle with preparing a meal at home on Friday evenings? My legs could barely carry me home tonight - I had done a lot of running around this week and running up and down the long subway escalators. I was kaput!

Did I forget my vitamins??

I ran out of my go-to-comfort food.  Brown rice tortillas and Daiya cheese are my butter and toast. Trader Joe's hasn't had any brown rice tortillas recently - all the snow storms we have been having - people have been grabbing them before I reach there!

After eating a few corn tortilla chips, dried coconut chips, I knew I had to make something substantial 'cause I wasn't going to survive on that or rice crackers and kimchi sauce!

Enter the can can dance! I kept eyeing the can of kidney beans while my mouth salivated. "Yes, I want that!" "Nah! Who's going to chop garlic, tomatoes, etc.?" I debated with myself - I'm too tired.

I gave in - made the kidney beans and have enough energy to write this …
