My name is Dixya, and I’m so happy you are here. As a Registered Dietitian, Culinary Instructor, and Recipe Developer behind Food, Pleasure, and Health, I welcome you to my little corner on the internet where I inspire wholesome living through delicious food, wellness tips, and everything in between.

My Story
Food, Pleasure, and Health started in 2011 purely out of my love for health and wellness, and has evolved over the years into a creative living space with a focus on delicious food. While I love food and spend a ridiculous amount of time and energy around it, I am also passionate about helping others recognize the importance of taking care of their health and wellness, and living intuitively through their surrounding environment.I was born and raised in Kathmandu, Nepal, but found my way over to the U.S. where I currently live in Fort Worth, Texas.
