“Preach not to others what they should eat, but eat as becomes you and be silent. ”
Welcome to Lite Bite!
I am Sanjeeta kk, author of this blog. A forty something mom with a bucketful of dreams and a ray of hope, who is constantly striving to fulfill them some day.
I wasn’t a tough kid; I was always intrigued by the fascinating world of art and food during my childhood days. I would sketch endlessly and spend hours fiddling with spices in my mom’s kitchen.
But lack of opportunities, higher studies and work life put a hold on the things I loved doing.
May be I was not a tough kid and did not want to disappoint my parents then. Marriage in 1996, and life got busy managing two children and a beautiful home.
It took me years to break free from the shackles of the procrastination to follow my passion. The journey was not smooth for this forty plus mom who was neither a tech savvy nor a gadget lover.
But then, as they say, ‘a person can succeed in almost anything for which they have unlimited enthusiasm.’
And then Lite Bite happened; I started to dabble in the world of art and food once again through my blog Lite Bite in 2009.
I found this platform a perfect ‘place to string the beads of happiness together and keep my passion alive’. Sharing small moments and stories of my life through my food and pictures made me happier.
Food for sure is nostalgic, comforting & an important factor to connect with people and make community. And I now have an amazing list of intellectual and creative online friends from across the world to boast.
Seeking out new challenges; ‘Happiness consists in activities’ and I soon found myself dabbling in amateur content writing and learning the technicalities behind maintaining a blog. As I strolled along creating new recipes and trying out the old favorites I found new challenges in terms of digital photography and creative food styling.
From managing this food blog, I gradually moved on to do commercial food styling for many popular brands and companies in Chennai.
Yes, I am living my dream every single day.
My hands are full; sometimes I feel that pursuing one’s passion is a luxury you cannot afford to indulge in everyday.
There are times when hectic lifestyle, family commitments and responsibility towards bringing up my children keep my passion at bay. And struggle I do every day to fit my passion into my life, but that does not deter me from pursuing my dreams any less.
So here is this inquisitive mommy donning the roles of a full time cook, amateur writer, novice photographer, fledgling food stylist at different times for this blog Lite Bite, apart from being a doting wife managing two hyperactive children at home….yes, my hands are full now.
And life is interesting….
