About me

Industry Education
Location Birmingham, United Kingdom
Introduction "The Yogi Vegetarian" is me (Sarojini) and my husband Nandasuta. We are both vegan now (although we weren't when The Yogi Vegetarian blog was started) but our teenagers are not, so we have to be constantly creating new and delicious main meals to tempt their temperamental teenage tastebuds so we can all eat at least one meal a day together. We don't have loads of money, so we have learned to shop smart and eat well on a budget. We want to show you that you can do it too! We have both been pure vegetarian for many years and also follow a yogic diet which excludes eggs,mushrooms,masoor dal, garlic, onions and alcohol. We are practitioners of Bhakti Yoga, the ancient Vedic path of Krishna Consciousness. We were contributors to the Bhakti Yoga cookbook "Kitchen of Love", and are currently working on another cookbook of our own.
Interests Bhakti Yoga, cooking, photography, travel, dance, education, swimming, reading. writing, gardening.
Favorite Movies Nader Nimai (old Bengali film about a Vaisnava incarnation of Krishna with amazing singing)
Favorite Music Krishna bhajanas, MS Subbulaxmi, European Baroque music, dub and reggae (Scientist, Dreadzone, African Head charge, Ijahman Levi, Augustus Pablo etc.), ambient stuff (slightly Darkwave, like Dead Can Dance and Cocteau Twins)
Favorite Books Sri Caitanya Caritamrtam, Bhagavad Gita, Isopanishad, the books of my Gurudeva, and a novel called Foucault's Pendulum, by Umberto Ecco. I also quite like Paulo Coelho's books (like The Alchemist).
