About the Show

Being guilt free is about making the right food choices. It’s about wholesome living. It's about nourishing yourself with the right ingredients. It's about being aware of what you buy. What you put on your table. And what you feed your family.

This season Guilt free gets a deeper understanding of how recipes can be altered to become healthy. It doesn't mean you have to give up everything. It means you do away with the worst, and look for alternatives that are beneficial. Chances are, you will eat more natural foods.

You will opt for local and seasonal produce. Foods that are more nutritionally sound. We will follow three basics - excellence of ingredients, simplicity of preparation, and respect for natural flavours. Each week we fashion a new twist. We bust the book of rules. And we come up with substitutes. And yet, we will try not to compromise on taste.

Seema Chandra
Seema Chandra
Seema Chandra has been in the food space for over a decade. She runs NDTV's food portal www.ndtvcooks.com and has been a food show anchor on television with NDTV 24X7, NDTV India and now NDTV Good Times. She's travelled the world sampling food and has had no choice but to suffer being filmed while eating. She's also been told that she can't lie about the food, as the expression on her face gives her away. Having spent ample time in kitchen standing shoulder to shoulder with chefs from around the world, Seema has been back on air on a series called Guilt Free. Only this time, she is doing the cooking along with her friends. Guilt Free is a food show about making the right food choices, choosing the right ingredients, cooking and eating smart. That's her food philosophy and it pretty much sums up what she writes about on the food website. Seema began her career in the television world, when it was barely seen as a career. Way back in 1992, she started as a researcher on the investigative news magazine called Newstrack. And even today, the research continues on food, nutrition and wellness.
