Hi Swati, thanks for joining me in this conversation .So, tell me about your Life before blogging. So,who was Swati back then?
Life before blogging was entirely different. I started my blog after moving to United states . Before that ,I was in India and was working as a maths teacher in High school. When we moved to states, I used to feel bored and lonely at home. This boredom led me to spend more time on the internet and I started watching recipes on youtube. I always loved to cook , but youtube helped me a lot to try and learn new recipes.

I then started my own facebook group and added all friends in that group so that we can share and learn new recipes through that group. As my group grew , My interest in cooking started to turn into a passion, and then I finally decided to start my own food blog in March 2015. Blogging has given me a chance to learn so much every day. From a simple home cook to a recipe developer ,food photographer, and writer I have changed in so many ways.

What is your blog about?
My blog is about cooking the healthy food in a delicious way. I want more and more people to understand that eating healthy doesn't mean they have to compromise with the taste. We all can make healthy food , delicious if we use the right ingredient in the right amount in cooking. Also, sometimes I like to include some nature photographs in posts as I love to do nature photography. Here are few clicks from my camera. ( Check attached files)
 How do you incorporate health in your food?
This is a very interesting question. Well in my opinion , whatever is cooked at home with pure and fresh ingredients is healthy. I always try to include healthy food items such as fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy, whole grains, and proteins in my recipes and I generally avoid to eat out. I love to cook every day for my family because I want them to be healthy.Here is my blog link

If you were to go on a date with your husband to any restaurant in the world. Where would that be and what would you order?
If I were to go on a date with my husband, I would love to go to this one restaurant we went on our first anniversary. It is called Parikrama and it is in New Delhi and it serves excellent food. I would love to go there and order my favorite Chinese food there.
Can you share some of your best food experiences till date?
I love Chinese and Thai Cuisine and last year we had the best food experience . We went to Virginia for vacation and there we had the best food in one of the restaurants in downtown , It is  called BIG BOWL. I loved the " Stir fry Bar " at the restaurant where we could customize our own bowl. Everything else they serve was just excellent and it was best Thai food I have ever had.
