Bindu Grandhi developed a passion for flavorful flexitarian cooking in her early 20’s. Her knowledge of good health and nutrition comes from her mother, Vasantha Prasad, author of “Indian Vegetarian Cooking from an American Kitchen” (Random House) and her father, Balasa L. Prasad, a physician and author of “Stop Overeating For Good” (Avery). In her first cookbook, she touts the health benefits of eating a flexitarian diet comprised primarily of vegetables, legumes, whole grains, spices, fruits and nuts with an occasional serving of chicken and fish. She believes that eating a tasty and satisfying nutritional meal is exactly what our mind craves and body needs. She has an MBA from NYU along with 10 years of corporate experience. She works part-time and lives with her family in Westchester County, New York.
