Mini Seelan - Food Consultant
I was born in South India (Kerala) and lived in Singapore until I was seven, when the family moved to the UK. My mum cooked amazing food from India and Singapore. I learned to cook at an early age, and it stirred a passion with me to experiment with different spices and flavours to create delicious recipes. I took my passion into education (Bsc Food & Nutrition) and following study I worked for nearly 30 years in the food industry. I learned about the manufacturing process, food safety, quality, nutrition, food allergies, food legislation and consumer needs.
The passion keeps growing and I setup Mini4Food to speciialising in food and nutrition to share my knowledge to source, cook and enjoy amazing and delicious nutritious food.
I spent 30 years as an IT executive, in global corporations such as Vodafone, AT&T, and McAfee as well as many start-ups, including my own.
I created 1Step-Beyond to focus my energy, knowledge, and passion on mental fitness and life coaching. Having experienced mental health issues in my family and at work, I set up 1Step-Beyond to offer information. consultancy and advice on mental health and fitness, while also providing the tools to help maintain a healthy mind and body.
My vision is to be part of a movement to dramatically improve the attitudes, strategies, policies, and infrastructure around mental health. I would like to see mental fitness as ubiquitous as physical health.
