Welcome!
Hi! I’m Jenifer, Registered and Licensed Dietitian and your healthy lifestyle cheer leader. I help South Asians with reversing pre-diabetes, managing diabetes, and experiencing weight loss ~ without giving up their favourite South Asian foods.
I grew up eating South Asian foods like daal, chaawal (rice), roti (Indian tortillas), ghee, biryani & samosas. My dad has diabetes and I have first hand experience in managing his diabetes with nutrition & lifestyle changes. I have also helped many clients with reversing their pre-diabetes and managing diabetes.

I remember grabbing a piece of samosa and laddoo at a friend’s party. One of my South Asian friends asked, “Are you sure, you’re going to eat the fried samosa and sugary laddoo even though you are a dietitian?” I said “I do enjoy all foods and eat mindfully”. Similarly, I won’t restrict you either from enjoying your favorite foods. 

I can help you without having you give up your staple and favorite foods. With some tweaks & lifestyle changes along with building necessary skills along the way, I can help you reverse pre-diabetes and manage diabetes, enjoy heart health, and experience weight loss. We will work together to find solutions that best suit your lifestyle needs & work schedules. As a bonus, I can provide nutrition coaching in Hindi & Gujarati in addition to English.

Philosophy: At Archaic Nutrition & Lifestyle, I combine ancient food wisdom with mindful eating techniques to help clients live a long lasting healthy, happy and deprivation-free life. I teach clients a Whole Foods approach instead of clinging to super foods or fad diets as a short cut to health & wellness. Remember Archaic Lifestyle is a marathon and not a sprint.

My mantra is “Stick to the basics, patronize local foods, exercise often but don’t forget self care and to take a rest day.”

Archaic Lifestyle Bites
The internet is loaded with diabetes and weight loss nutrition information and fad diets. However, I understand how difficult and overwhelming it can be to sift through all the information, especially when it’s not targeted towards South Asian lifestyle and eating habits. NO WORRIES! Therefore, I created this blog to keep you informed about a variety of nutrition topics, and share healthy recipes and kitchen tips – The South Asian Way
