I am an Endocrinologist passionate about healthy eating. I strongly believe healthy eating starts with healthy cooking. The main barriers to cooking are now knowing how to cook, now knowing what healthy ingredients to cook with and lack of time. I hope to eliminate all of these barriers through this experience and make healthy cooking and thus healthy eating a daily reality for you.
Learn how to make healthy plant based meals using unprocessed plant foods as the key ingredients, indian spices as the key flavors using the Instant Pot as the key cooking tool. Learn basics of instant pot cooking including how to use various settings like manual, sauté, steam, yogurt mode and when to do natural versus quick release. I will also review using the very handy "Delay Start" feature and "Pot in Pot" method.
In every class, we will make one legume dish using lentils/chickpeas/beans, one tofu+vegetable/greens dish and one whole grain dish using brown rice/quinoa/forbidden rice/amaranth/oats. I will show you an easy way to use Indian spices so you no longer feel intimidated using them.
I strongly believe that knowledge is power and I will discuss specific health benefits of all the ingredients we will be using. This is a hands-on , intimate experience limited to a small group so everyone get a chance to make and taste the food and get all their questions answered. You can check out some of my recipes on my Facebook page “Instantly Healthy Eating”.

What a great experience. Bhakti has such a wealth of knowledge about food and nutrition and she is so passionate about sharing, it's contagious. We learned all about different vegetables and their impact on our health and we cooked absolutely delicious dishes using the Instant Pot. I was amazed at how easy it was to prepare them and am going to dust off my Instant Pot today!

This experience was fantastic. Even though I have already been plant based for a year, I still learned so much! Bhakti is warm, friendly and welcoming. She is passionate about health and plant based eating. This is a great experience for a novice, or experienced person. Learn the what, how, and why to eating plant based. Learn how to use many of the functions of your instant pot. Learn to make authentic Indian recipes. What’s not to love! Myself and a friend carpooled 1.5 hrs for this experience. Next level class we’re going back with 3! Highly recommend.

Bhakti presented a lot of information about the power of food and the benefits of healthy eating.. We made 4 dishes in an instant pot (she had 3 instant pots). All were delicious, chickpeas Masala was my favorite. After cooking we ate lentils and greens, the chickpeas, tofu miso stew and pot in pot lentil and grains. The end of the meal was with tofu chocolate mousse and soy yoghurt. It was all delicious and I am not a fan of tofu or soy but this was an a real exception. I would say to definitely take notes because the handout can't cover everything she talked about. Healthy, fast and delicious meal making and you learn more about your instant pot. good food that is healthy.

I was fortunate enough to attend a cooking class by Dr. Bhakti and I would love to attend another. All her recipes were so delicious, and she even gave us the recipes to take home. I've been Plant Based for about a year and a half but Dr. Bhakti's cooking is over to the top good! The chocolate mousse for desert will be a real hit for the holidays. Thank you again. Not only was it an informative cooking lesson, but Dr. Bhakti is fun to learn with.

We loved this cooking class because of our interest in learning about eating whole foods and using the Instapot and also navigating diabetes which one of our group members struggles with. The atmosphere was relaxed, clean, professional. We left with new ideas on detox teas, herbs, healthy sweets and the importance of enjoying what you put into your body. High energy, laughs and lots of helpful pointers and ideas. All three of us left with different takeaways, from fasting to eating different herbs to trying new teas and spices.
