Welcome to Luminous Foods
Dr. Siri Chand Kaur Khalsa maintains a private medical practice in Phoenix, Arizona and saw a need to create a vegetarian food blog, where she posts on utilizing food as our first daily medicine for creating a vibrant healthy body. From the organic farms where we get our vegetables to sustainably preparing healthy food, to the ancient science of Ayurveda, her writings are created to offer ongoing critique of the often conflicting information available on these topics. After completing her allopathic education, Dr. Khalsa has been blessed to travel internationally learning ancient, subtle healing techniques and is now certified as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master with additional ongoing studies in aromatherapy, Ayurveda, and nutrition. From the wisdom given to us by Yogi Bhajan, she teaches the fundamental idea that food is in fact medicine that can sustain our physical, mental, and spiritual bodies as we move through our time on Earth. Plus she loves to eat and cook! Embracing the Sikh concepts of seva (service) and langar (kitchen where food is served to all for free) she prays someday all will be able join in the global table to receive adequate servings of healthy vegetarian food.
