About Rakhi

Rakhi is an actress-turned Registered Dietitian so her sessions are always engaging and entertaining. Her own body image issues with eczema, struggles with food allergies, and IBS lead her to pursue nutrition. Rakhi’s core values are to provide empathy and compassion to all her clients with evidence-based care. Above all else, she aims to make nutrition accessible and easy to understand. Her 10+ year career in health and wellness includes wellness coaching, nursing, patient advocacy, corporate health education, graduate academic nutrition research, and speaking to people from diverse cultural backgrounds on various health platforms. Rakhi believes there is no health care without self care. When we feel good mentally and physically that positive energy flows into all aspects of
our personal and work lives. Rakhi’s true passion is to help guide others on their health journey so that they can tap into their life’s full potential and purpose.

Get To Know Rakhi

Favorite cultural dish or comfort food: Tonkotsu ramen

Favorite recipe: Cheesy Squash casserole (I’ve converted many mac ‘n cheese lovers who are non-vegetable eaters to this dish. Swap out noodles for crushed low sodium ritz crackers — it’s life changing!)

Go-to morning beverage: Hazelnut or white mocha coffee (hot especially during the holidays — YUM!)

Favorite book/TV show/movie: The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron

How has your cultural culinary heritage shaped your approach to nutrition, and do you incorporate any traditional practices into your counseling? Growing up, I watched my mother host dinner parties and much of my family shows their love through food rather than through words. Seeing the love and care that went into sharing a meal together is something I still carry with me today and how I like to take care of people.

Nutrition philosophy in a nutshell: Food affects your mood and there is no healthcare without self-care. When we pay attention to what foods feel good in our body, we feel good mentally. That positive energy flows into all aspects of our lives so that we can tap into life’s full potential and purpose.
