Practical, delicious solutions to help you hold on to what’s important, and cook more, feel good and live well.

Hello and Welcome!

I’m Puneeta, a food writer and better food advocate and I offer practical, delicious solutions to individuals and families to improve our personal health and also the health and prosperity of the planet.

My work is inspired by scientific evidence around food and its connection with climate change, extensive research between food & mood, along with my own personal experiences of how the food that tastes good and is good for us as individuals is also good for the planet. A delightful and inescapable coincidence.

But navigating the world of cooking and eating and being weighed down by everyday decision-making around *good food* can be hard. I make it easy to shift kitchen habits with my recipes, strategies, and tips that help people cook more, use what they have, feel good, and live well.

MapleandMarigold.com, my blog, started as a love letter to India and Canada. Maple represents Canada and my life here. Marigold, with its colour and significance in Indian culture, represents my roots in India. What started as a blog on culture and family has evolved into a mission: to help create positive change in our kitchen and homes and in how we feel, and to make cooking and eating delicious and fun.

My goal is to help a million++ people make easy-to-implement, good-for-us, good-for-the-planet changes in cooking and eating that have the potential for enormous personal and collective impact.

Thank you for visiting my digital home and inviting me into your real one. I’m looking forward to cooking with you!

With gratitude and optimism,

Puneeta

    Go Small – Low-Waste Ideas to Celebrate the Festival of Diwali

    CHCH Morning Live - Low-Waste Inspo to Celebrate the Festival of Diwali There is a notion about Diwali that’s big lights, new clothes, big gatherings, delicious food and fireworks in the sky, and all of that is true. But this year, in this time, may I suggest we prioritize the planet and go small, and green, and choose low-waste. Reuse, recycle, re-purpose, upcycle all of these words that have the same meaning - use what we have and make it shine to truly represent the spirit of this festival...
