A Carnegie Mellon alum, Rahul is a multi-disciplinary engineer with a passion to build innovative technology projects. Fascinated by how a little dietary change could have a massive impact on physical, mental and overall health, Rahul picked up on clean eating and home cooking. He religiously follows a simple tip from his sister: Stick with natural ingredients. Any ingredient you cannot pronounce is not worth putting in your body.
