We believe that Food is Medicine...

The Nutrichefs LHMCANNA was started on 29thApril 2021. Currently there are 54 members and counting. All our group activities are conducted through WhatsApp where the community is very active. Members generally share information about Indian foods. New or healthy foods, foods for days of fasting, or fusion foods are discussed and shared. We also discuss food fads, health science and food substitutes and kitchen appliances.

Some unique recipes we have shared include mukhana (Foxnut) quinoa khichdi, lauki kofta in an airfryer, green pea rava idli, oat uthappam, steel cut oat/buckwheat upma and sabu dana khichdi

Sweets and desserts like kalakand, mohanthal, coconut laddu’s gluten-free malpuva, gajar halwa and almond flour bread with banana were shared including Kheer options like rice/lauki.

Different types of rotis, theplas etc have been shared. We share dough mixing options like silken tofu, avocado, grated veggies, left over dals etc.

Spice mixes from whole spices, pickling ginger/daikon and green chilies in apple cider vinegar have been shared too.

Our members learn about food and about living. As food is both for the body and soul. Happy cooking!! Please contact if you wish to join us - We want you.....
