Hey, hot stuff!
I’m Nisha, and welcome to RainbowPlantLife. I’m a food-loving, travel-loving lawyer-turned-foodie living in Brooklyn, New York.
My foray into blogging originated with my career as a lawyer. After graduating from Harvard Law School in 2012, I went on to work as a corporate lawyer in BigLaw. After two unhappy years, I quit in 2014 to backpack around the world for six months with my partner.
It was the best decision of my life, and it opened my eyes to the importance of living my life with adventure, laughter, and authenticity.
I started a little travel blog during my time abroad and realized that I enjoyed freeform blog rambling—part poetry, part satire, part stream of consciousness—much more than dry legal writing, always punctuated by therefores and secondlys and always bereft of personality.
After my travels, I began practicing nonprofit law but remained unhappy professionally, which made personal fulfillment all the more important to me.
I started my next blog, the Laws of Bliss in 2016 to document my pursuit of practices, routines and ideas that could make me happy(ier) and healthy(ier). This involved treating my body with care and self-love, getting plenty of sleep, being grateful for everything and everyone in my life, meditating, staying organized, being kind, cultivating a childlike sense of wonder, and laughing a lot. And making really delicious food and sharing it with others.
Along this journey, I became vegan, started a food Instagram account and a YouTube channel, quit the law entirely and started working at a food startup called Hungryroot in NYC where I direct and manage the photography.
At Rainbow Plant Life, you’ll find delicious, mouthwatering vegan recipes that are accessible yet elevated; info on how to live a healthy lifestyle and how to venture into veganism; tips on food photography and social media; and a little bit of travel inspiration thrown in there.
