Get to know Pia Desai Paricha:

1. How are you keeping the food healthy at home/ managing the health quotient during this lockdown?

It’s much harder during lockdown because everyone is at home constantly and meals are a central part of our day. Not all ingredients are available all the time, so it’s a bit of a challenge. We normally do an assessment of what we have in the house once a week and plan our meals and snacks accordingly. Luckily fruit and vegetables are easily available so we are sure to include big helpings! A lockdown staple has been fresh fruit salad, helps with the five a day!

2. How are you keeping stress at bay (now that the whole family is home)?

We do a workout together or some yoga! We use an online class.

3. What do you think the greatest invention has been during your lifetime? 

Dataphones and video calls, allows us all to keep in touch with each other both socially and for work. I cannot even imagine lockdown without it!

4. What is your dream job? 

Something that involves travel, culture, and creativity!

5. Describe motherhood in just one word! 

Nonstop!

Get to know Shivali Jaggi Bhatia:

1. How are you keeping the food healthy at home/ managing the health quotient during this lockdown?

It’s very tough during the lockdown, given the lack of supply. We try to include different types of Millet flour, a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables that are easily accessible.immunity is key during this period, therefore we try to include different concoctions of immunity-boosting teas on a daily basis.

2. How are you keeping stress at bay (now that the whole family is home)?

For me, the biggest stress buster has been meditation and Pilates/yoga/workout every day.

3. What do you think the greatest invention has been during your lifetime?

The biggest savior has been technology. The ability to do all our work virtually, be it school/office/workout or being socially connected.

4. What are the 3 happiest times in your life?

At this point, it’s all my holidays with my best friends that have been my happiest times!

5. What is your dream job?

It has to do with travel, food, and fashion!

6. Describe motherhood in just one word!

The best workout ever. No rest!
