Ep. 97 - Hall of Fame | Archana And Nehal Bhandari – Transforming As A Couple, Cooking Delicious Vegetarian Meals & Exploring Minimalism

We’ve got a very insightful episode today with two fellow RNT’ers, Archana and Nehal Bhandari.

Both first came to us at RNT in January with the goal to get into incredible shape, boost their confidence and be an example to their children.
Ever since, they’ve both embraced and completely immersed themselves into the lifestyle, which explains the awesome results they achieved!
Over the course of the first 20 weeks, Archana dropped 10kg, and Nehal lost 15kg, and ever since, they’ve consolidated and maintained very effectively, despite their busy lifestyles of work, two children and a vegetarian diet with no eggs!

Speaking of being vegetarian, Archana’s background as a trained chef really comes to shine here as she uncovers her thoughts on spicing up typical veggie meals, and how simple changes in ingredients can create great results!

We finish up on the episode diving into minimalism, introspection and the art of decluttering, which was very interesting, and will be of great value to many of you listening here today.

I hope you enjoy this one!
