Jonnalagadda, Satya S. Diwan, Sadhna. Nutrient intake of first generation Gujarati Asian Indian immigrants in the U.S. Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Vol. 21, No. 5, 372-380 (2002).

This article surveyed the diet of Gujarati Asian Indian immigrants who have been living in the U.S. They observed that the length of living in the U.S. and the immigrants’ socio-economic status played a great role on their diet. This article is similar to my research because it observes how the immigrants’ diet has changed since living in a different country.

Newhouser, Marian L. Thompson, Beti. Gloria, Coronado D. Solomon, Cam C.

This applies to my research because I want to see how the Tibetan diet has changed as they’ve lived in India.

  1. Looks like you are really getting going on your literature! Good job! It seems like you are definitely grounded in a topic that is academically sound. Have you been able to find out anything more specific on Tibetans in exile?

    Also I’m digging your blog layout. It is so clean and well organized!

    • I haven’t been able to find very much on Tibetans’ food in exile. Most of the studies I’ve found focus on religion or the trauma of having to live in exile. I’m going to keep looking though.
