Hello and Welcome to ‘ Shades Of Shreyu’!! I’ m Shreya the face behind “Shades of shreyu” and I live in Gujarat, India with my family. Along with food and aspects relating to it i also decided to discover my dormant talent which have always fascinated me. I have fond memories of eating wonderful sweets, desserts and everyday simple foods as a child growing up in Western India. Seeing beautiful things and enhancing their beauty challenges my everyday being. I’ve always been interested in the creative side of life and love colours anywhere & everywhere ! I became inquisitive about the food we eat and the connection it has with our body, mind, intellect, and spirit. My ‘Mother’ is a greatest inspiration in cooking & my dad motivated me for home decor. I have grown up seeing her cooking and trying out lot of receipes with her own ‘Magic of Variations’.The interest and the curiosity with a great passion for food made me even more conscious of what went into my cooking pot in the kitchen and our plates on the table. That’s when I really started looking at food as a means to not just feed our body but also appeal to the ‘Mind’ and the ‘Soul’.I began to invest a lot of money and energy in‘Researching’ and ‘Learning’ about healthy food and cooking and how what we eat affects our bodies,the way we tend to react to situations as well and discovered that food plays a major role in ‘Shaping’ who we are! Along the way, my photography came to the fore and now I passionately take pictures for ‘ Shades of Shreyu ‘ and record life through my lens as I travel , live and learn from life each day.
‘Shades of Shreyu’ catalougues my quest for simple and exotic pleasures in food that lead to tremendous overall well-being. The receipe may come from any part of the world. I am vegeterian by birth so my receipes will be completely vegeterian (excluding eggs too ) . My focus here is on pure vegetarian and ‘Sattvic’ food. It is a the place where all my three obsessions of writing , photography and food come together. Receipes as old as the ones cooked by many generations in my family and those collected and Experimnted from my Travel and Interactions with people from different walks of life share space here.My Great Grand Mother , Grandmother as well as my Mother created the most delecable, magical and pleasurable meals for their families using pure vegetarian ingredients and I’m happy to follow their ‘Footsteps’! I simply love arranging, re-arranging, de-cluttering, DIYs, crafts, Indian Handicraft , wall paintings and home decor. Creating a beautiful environment is my everyday passion !!So Welcome to my Blog : ‘ Shades of Shreyu ‘ and start learning receipes how to ‘Stay Raw Stay Wow’ and start living the colourful side of Life ! 🙂
