Dr. Vidhya Illuri WROTE: A healthy children’s cookbook with illustrated step by step instructions called “Can I have a Treat?”

She graduated completed her medical degree at Northwestern University and went on to train at Loyola University for Internal Medicine followed by an Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism fellowship at Northwestern University.

“I recently started food blogging (drillurispantry.org) to promote healthy eating for my patients. It is a creative outlet for me as I love to create recipes and photograph the final product. My two children have taken an interest in cooking as well and I created a healthy children’s cookbook with illustrated step by step instructions called “Can I have a Treat?” I believe that eating healthy starts at home in the kitchen and we need to teach our children from a young age to prevent disease.”

 

“I have always been a foodie-Loved to try new recipes and go to the latest restaurants. But as an endocrinologist I wanted to show that being a “foodie” doesn’t have to mean unhealthy food. Many people believe eating healthy is a punishment—even I used to think so! As I started really learning about healthy eating—I realized food should be thought of as fuel for our bodies to help us achieve our goals—I have a better understanding of how mindful eating is incredibly important.”
