I eat plants, drink way too much tea, always have a book on my side table and an opinion on everything (well, almost – except politics and cars, not my thing).
Born and raised in Karachi, after spending a few years (and much blood and sweat) studying Law in Manchester, I moved to Doha, where I have been working as a policy analyst for 4+ years. By evening I take off my corporate suit and turn into a hippie – chilling in my jammies, reading books or experimenting with plant-based recipes in the kitchen.
Since I was always passionate about health and wellness and constantly resorting to the internet to learn more about it, my husband (fiance at the time) encouraged me to go for proper certification. The time and money investment was considerable but I loved the idea! A few days later I enrolled in the American Institute of Fitness Professionals to study Nutrition. Soon afterwards, I came across another amazing course offered by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (INN) and just had to go for that too! Working during the day and studying at night was a bitch, but so worth it! I walked away with a completely new perspective on food and nutrition and certified as a Health & Wellness Coach.
I also gave up meat and starting following a vegetarian diet (If you are wondering why and how, just hit the subscribe button and read on – that’s all I talk about in my blogs ;). Let’s just say, it’s been one heck of a journey and I have learned too much to keep to myself. So, now i blog about health, wellness, and basically “being-the-only-plant-based-person-I-know-in-a–desi-meat-eating-country” at Eudaimon Living.
So guys, what do you say? Let’s be friends and take our fitness level up a notch, yesh!??
