About the author
Jahnavi Angela Sankhla is an Indian American chef, writer, and television personality. She appears on several television news programs such as Great Day Houston, which is a morning show on the CBS News affiliate in Houston, Texas. Her heart-healthy cooking, especially her famous fat-free donuts have also been featured on many other morning shows in the United States, such as Good Morning Washington, which is on the ABC News affliate in Washington, D.C. Her interviews have been featured on the local ABC and NBC evening news and other television shows. Sankhla is the younger daughter of Chandra P. Sankhla, who works in the Pentagon, Department of Defense, and her mother is Kiran L. Sankhla, who is faculty at the University of Maryland. She has an elder sister who is happily married. Her grandfather in India is Justice Kan Singh Parihar, a retired High Court Justice in Jodhpur, India. Jahnavi comes from the royal family of Jodhpur, India - the Parihar dynasty. Her ancestor is Maharaja Shri Nahar Rao Parihar who was the brave King of Mandore in the ancient capital of Marwar. During the Clinton administration in 1995, Jahnavi worked in the White House for Hillary Clinton's Health Care Reform. Healthy eating being her passion, Jahnavi began catering for congressional luncheons in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1995. Jahnavi made friendships with several members of Congress who are impressed by her advocating a healthy diet which would cut down health care costs. Several Congressmen and their wives - such as former House Minority leader, Congressman Richard Gephardt and Congressman Lane Evans - have come to Jahnavi's home to enjoy her gourmet heart-healthy cooking. Congressman Dennis Kucinich and his wife appreciate Jahnavi's heart-healthy cuisine as well. When Jahnavi's father had emergency double-bypass open heart surgery, Jahnavi's career in heart-healthy cooking began. Jahnavi's goal was to lower her father's cholesterol by making all of her father's favorite foods fat-free. Using her creativity, she developed totally fat-free pizza, tacos, donuts, lasagna and nachos. Her goal was to create delicious healthy junk food. Her father's colleagues in the Pentagon were so impressed that her father's cholesterol dropped from 250 mg/dl to 150 mg/dl in just two months of eating Jahnavi's very low-fat diet, without needing any cholesterol-lowering medications. They all began to ask her for her recipe for fat-free cake. Thus, she decided to put all her recipes together in a cookbook and was soon interviewed on the local ABC evening news in Washington, D.C. Jahnavi is the author of three cookbooks: Heart-Healthy Wealthy And Wise, Thank God It's Fat-Free Fun Food, and The Yoga Of Eating Great and Losing Weight, which is based on the bhakti yoga taught by Srila Prabhupada. Jahnavi was trained in ayurveda in the Himalayas where she learned yoga and meditation in the monasteries. She is a bhakti-yoga instructor and became a naturopathic physician. She has extensively studied alternative medicine in the field of cancer immunology. As a faculty at University of Marlyand, Jahnavi started the Food For Life club, whose mother organization is the international food relief program Food For Life. Jahnavi's catering company has also catered free healthy meals for the Christ House which is a homeless shelter in Washington D.C. Jahnavi has met with several notables such as President Bill Clinton, Larry King, and Regis Philbin. On the CBS News morning show, she is known as the Deepak Chopra of the culinary world.
