Brand Ambassador

The Premier Voice Individuals and Parents Respect and Companies Trust

“As a busy mom of two, Anjali Shah knows how important it is to make healthy food easy and delicious. With her valuable guidance, your child will begin a journey to becoming a natural foodie with a lifelong love for nourishing themselves with real food.”
—Dr. Mark Hyman, Medical Director at Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Functional Medicine, Founder of The UltraWellness Center, and author of “Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?”

“Five years ago, I hated cooking. Today, I love it, and there is only one reason for this drastic change: Anjali Shah’s advice and help. I never felt comfortable cooking, however I realized after the birth of my daughter that if I didn’t shape up, we’d eat out too much on nights when my wife worked late. Anjali’s blog literally has fed our family ever since. The recipes are delicious, innovative and healthy. Anjali’s detail oriented and accessible advice has helped ease me into the kitchen and even turned the “chore” of cooking into an enjoyable daily experience. At times, this novice cook feels like a chef and it’s all due to Anjali’s help.”
—Nirav Shah, MD, Anesthesiologist

“After struggling with emotional eating for a few years, working with Anjali really put me on the right track. I had too many notions in my mind regarding how I should eat, what should I eat, etc. I made it too complicated. Anjali explained it to me in such a manner that it not only made a lot of sense but also felt intuitive. I am now a smaller version of myself and more importantly a more calm and confident version as well.”
—Renee, Mom of 2

Who is Anjali Shah?

Anjali Shah is a food writer, published author, board certified health coach, nutritionist, mom of two, and an advocate for healthy, clean eating for individuals and families. Anjali grew up a “whole wheat” girl, but married a “white bread” kind of guy. Hoping to prove that nutritious food could in fact be delicious and desirable, she taught herself how to cook and successfully transformed her husband’s eating habits from a diet of frozen pizzas and Taco Bell to her healthy, yet flavorful recipes made with simple, wholesome ingredients. As a motivational speaker and brand ambassador, Anjali helps individuals and families to make healthy choices and cook at home to promote overall wellness. After becoming a mom, Anjali expanded her programs to include strategies and techniques to combat picky eating in kids of all ages. Anjali started The Picky Eater in 2011 to make healthy food accessible, tasty, easy to make at home, and picky-eater proof.
