Welcome to Little Bliss Nutrition!

aboutmegypsy

I’m Rakhi (pronounced Rocky), I know it’s an odd name for a girl, but we’ll  just go with it.

What is Little Bliss Nutrition?

It’s a blissful living playbook of ventures in food, natural skin & health alternatives, quips about living and dealing with allergies, and other musings and travels.

What you need to know:

 I’m a film enthusiastamateur chef, Master’s in Nutrition student and DIY-obsessed bargain hunter. I live to create in every form I can learn.

I have an autoimmune disease 

Atopic dermatitis/EczemaI’m also allergic to foods like wheat and soy (among other things). Eating out at restaurants gives me anxiety…not so much for me, but for the other person I’m with. When you’ve thrown up on a date before, it’s kind of embarrassing. 

I like playing in the kitchen

I’m in a long-term relationship with my food, but nothing ever packaged comes without an allergy-food warning label so I tend to buy/cook all natural. You can say I’m a health-nut by default, but who ever said eating healthy had to be bland and blah was a boring Betty. No thanks.

I’ve gone on a 60-Day Cleanse                                                                   

Which I go into here. It has become a life style change, but the benefits and results I have found are tremendous.

Random fact:

The idea of hanging from ceilings on nothing more than 2 pieces of silk seems like a fun way to exercise for me. Look up aerial silk.

I’m studying to be a Registered Dietitian 

Food, culture and how people live and eat has always fascinated me. Dance and film-making are a few of my passions outside the kitchen. I’m currently pursuing a career in Nutrition and Dietetics. I like sharing thoughts and ideas and created Little Bliss Nutrition for whoever wants to do the same:)

  2. HI RAKHI AKA ROCKY,

    Sorry to hear about your disease, don’t know whats it like but I am glad you are dealing with it, Thanks for spreading the word of inspiration.. You are doing great.. Enjoy life the best way you can and keep spreading your work..

    Best wishes

    EAT ALL FRESH :)

  3. SO..not only do we both have bliss in our blog name, love healthy living, eat a “different” (BUT WONDERFUL) diet…I ALSO HAVE ECZEMA!! On the top of my hands..it gets SO bad in the winter.

    • Why do we have so much in common?! And ugh hand eczema IS THE WORSE! It never goes away because we’re constantly washing our hands, but my diet has helped improve it. Have you tried putting aquaphor at night and wearing cotton gloves to bed? The gloves are annoying only until you fall asleep ;) It’s well worth it though, you see results in two nights. And wearing rubber gloves when washing dishes helps and using a vegetable dicer when chopping vegetables to keep your hands water free helps as well.

  4. I work in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry and am actually working on some stuff for atopic skin at the moment :) Sorry but aren’t you scared the scarves will rip?hehe

    • That sounds really interesting! Let me know what products you come out with? I’m always trying new things for my skin :) Haha not in the slightest. The silks actually weigh a lot. It’s pretty heavy fabric…as thick as drapes and are suspended really high on metal beams in the ceilings. They won’t go anywhere:)

  5. Well, Rhaki. I finally found little ‘bliss’ not ‘blessed’ book. And who knew you were up to all good? I haven’t looked the whole place over but just wanted to let you know that I found it. Why was I so insistent about finding this blog? I give my word, that’s why; and I like to keep my word. Chasing bliss huh? That’s a grand ideal. For the record, I’ve also been blissed with a skin issue from birth {the bliss is intentional there.. just liked how it sounded} and I took a lot of heat as a child, called all sorts of names etc.. Anyway, thanks for the place, I’ll be back to look around some more. K

  6. I love what I see here. Great Work Rakhi. Keep blogging. Would love to see what you’re up to…apart from hanging from the ceiling from a piece of silk bit.:)

  7. Just happened to run into your blog. You have got a beautiful space running here. Loved some of your write-ups. Its very subtle . Great work. Keep blogging.

  8. Very cool intro, the best part “I am a bliss chaser…” that is one of the best description of how to live life & enjoy happiness I have read. Also, very intrigued by the ‘silking’ exercise…looks fun & healthy (a bit like aerial aerobics).

    • Thanks Randall! My favorite quote is ‘Follow your bliss’ so as long as we’re all chasing something that brings us complete happiness we’re all bliss chasers:)

      And you’re right, the silking I do is considered aerial acrobatics. Thanks for the lovely comment!

    • Haha trust me, I’m just as bad about going to the gym as most people. But aerials?! I’ll jump up like a jack-in-the-box for that. I’m pretty sure I was a Koala Bear in my past life.

  9. I’m sure I would love the thrill of it. You must have awesome arms, with all the supporting of body weight on your arms and all..Anyways, I’m gonna add it to my ‘to-do’ list..:)

    • Lol it’s fun! I do it at an aerial gym of course with high ceilings and hooks attached to the tresses where the silks are hung. Makes me feel like I’m a circus aerialist! You should try it some time if you an find an aerial gym. Great exercise and it makes you feel like a complete bada**;)

Leave a little thought...xx Rakhi
