Who’s Behind The VegHealth Institute?

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I am Anand Anma, co-owner of The VegHealth Institute and we have one mission: To inspire and support people in eating an optimal plant-based diet. Before the VegHealth Institute, I was a vegan and had been one nearly my whole life. I thought I was doing all the right things by eating clean, yet I had troubling health problems including hypothyroidism and infertility. When my husband (Vj) and I came across The VegHealth Institute, we knew this was an answer to all of our searching. In fact, we were so impressed, we bought the company! Now we, too, are experiencing the best health of our life. Maybe you’re curious about becoming a vegan or a vegetarian, but aren’t sure where to start. Or, maybe you’re already eating a plant-based diet, but don’t know if all your meals have the necessary vitamins and minerals to support your health. Perhaps you’re well-informed and confident in what you eat, but would like a little support and guidance for optimal nutrition. Wherever you are right now, we want to help. Meet the rest of our team below! To your vibrant health, Anand

Our Team



Anand blends her passion for health and vitality to support the team, our students, and our community. She has a long career as a coach and used her experience to help our members who wish to take their knowledge of healthy eating and share it with the world. Outside of VegHealth, she loves hiking in the great outdoors, preparing vegan meals, singing and traveling.


Co-Owner and Head of Strategy

Vj oversees the VegHealth strategy so that we can impact as many peoples’ lives as possible. After moving to the US and gobbling up the Standard American Diet, Vj ballooned up to 220 pounds. He got a wake up call when his friend was diagnosed with a heart condition and his nephew asked him if he was pregnant. He switched to a living food plant based diet and dropped 70 pounds in 3 months. He has lived a plant-based lifestyle for the last 18 years. He is a certified yoga instructor, life-long meditator, and is passionate about healing the world. He also has a long history of creating tech start-ups. He lives in the Bay Area area with his wife, Anand Anma.
