Health Coach Nidhi Nahata
Nidhi Nahata believes in simple living. A lifestyle change brought about a perspective shift in Nidhi’s life leading her to build the beautiful relationship with her body that she enjoys today. She deeply believes that “Food is thy medicine”. Respecting our body and listening to the signals it gives us is the only way we can connect with our body.
Her journey began when she started suffering from high cholesterol. She wanted a solution to her health problem that didn’t involve medicines. Her search led her to SHARAN - an organization built by Dr. Nandita Shah whose mission is to help people live their lives without medicines. As an attendee of the 21-day SHARAN health retreat she learnt the “way of life” - a way to connect and listen to her body and instincts. One diet for all - at the retreat patients with chronic ailments such as BP irregularities, sugar and thyroid problems, obesity and arthritis were given the same diet and each of them responded to the diet wonderfully. This opened her eyes to the fact that health is in our kitchen, the food we eat acts as preventative medicine.
She is very grateful to her ailment which led her to discover SHARAN which not only helped her reverse her ailment but also cure her son’s chronic asthma, her husband’s gastrointestinal issues and various other health issues of her family members and friends. Motivated from these success stories she started diet consultation and has helped more and more people to lead a healthy lifestyle. She also provides cancer health support.
Where does simplicity begin? It begins with the food on your plate.
“Jaisa khao ann waisa pao mann” - “You are what you eat”
This thought led her to found India’s first oil-free, whole foods plant based health cafe - Just Be. The aim was to provide people access to healthy food outside the comfort of their homes at affordable prices. Just Be serves nutritious, natural food designed for the human body - no added sugar or oil, dairy-free, free of all refined and processed ingredients and, free of colors and preservatives. Nidhi and the current Head-Chef, Prem Darshan worked for months to curate a menu that is healthy and includes fast food dishes like pizzas and sizzlers, to cater to the needs of the upcoming generation. Together they have burst the myth that healthy food is boring. Within six months, Just Be received The Times Food and Nightlife Award in the category of TAFE Best Health Food in Casual Dining. As an entrepreneur starting a cafe as unique as Just Be was a bold and commendable move by Nidhi. It was encouraging to see an unconventional cafe such as Just Be receive such a prestigious award in such short time. The need of the hour is to create the right demand keeping in mind the legacy we will be leaving behind for the upcoming generation. Nidhi hopes that the success of Just Be encourages other entrepreneurs to start more health cafes in every city.
Just Be now includes Just Be Holistic Studio that regularly conducts meditation session, yoga classes, sound immersion sessions, and other classes and workshops.
