I have started to love life and experience joy in contributing in every way
Nidhi Nahata, food therapist and founder of Justbe Resto Café in Bangalore, is bringing the same change to the world that SHARAN brought to her life.
It’s the universal truth, that when something real and good happens and one benefits from it, it just doesn’t stay within, it needs to spread, and that’s what is happening with me. And I am sure it happened with Dr Nandita, too, who now is on a mission of building a culture of health.
I am fortunate that I am one of the chosen few who could walk on this path after the SHARAN 21-day health retreat. The retreat was perfectly curated for my well-being, both in mind and body. The experience brought me closer to nature, with cooking classes, lectures, documentaries, movie nights, games and more.
And that’s what I emulated in my life after tasting good health. I wouldn’t give up my plant based lifestyle for anything now! The only regret I had and still have today is that I didn’t even know that food is my medicine and medicine is my food! Why didn’t my doctors tell me to eat nutrient rich food instead of giving me strong medicines and steroids for my skin allergy, pain killers for migraine attacks?
In less than 2 years after the retreat I opened a plant-based restaurant, Justbe Resto Cafe, at Sadashivnagar, Bangalore! As a certified nutritionist from both SHARAN and eCornell University, I curate recipes, conduct cooking classes, hold monthly Vegan Flea Markets and more. It’s the diet that I am on which gives me the energy that I didn’t have even when I was 20!!
In the true sense I have started to love life and experience joy by contributing in every way that I can to make this lifestyle sustainable. I am lucky that I have my entire family who walks with me. They, too, have reversed their ailments and deeply believe in plant based lifestyle. Today, each one of them is spreading this message in their own way
