Herban-Eats is a health-forward wellness company that offers targeted solutions through catering, coaching, demos, advocacy and specialty products.


Specializing in authentic, everyday Indian foods.  It all started with a passion to cook and serve the best healthy and tasty Indian vegetarian and vegan food. My thought of operating an Indian Vegetarian and Vegan food truck is to spread my love for food. Whenever someone hears the word Vegetarian or Vegan food they just think it all about eating Salad or Greens. But the reality is that there are many Vegetarian and Vegan dishes. We try to avoid using chemicals, preservatives, artificial color, unhealthy oils in my cooking. In our view food should be simple and tasty.
