About – feeed me

Hello! I’m Lily.  [as if that wasn’t cliche enough of a start] I s’pose you don’t want to see my CV/Resume here (which is all a-okay by me given the brevity that this ought to be). Really, all you need to know is this: I am extremely vain about my hair. Most. Days.

20-something researcher [although, more accurately, now a graduate student-researcher-teacher] originally hailing from California but now swimming in the effervescent (yes, deliberate use of the word) waters of the East Coast: specifically SE Virginia (Blacksburg – Virginia Tech) and Raleigh, North Carolina (NC State). Hyperactive energy abound, it is time to not only march towards those “dreams”, but to progress towards becoming the baddest ass mother fuxker around! [If that is offensive then the rest of these posts may also be equally offensive.] Whether or not success and BAMF-ness can be attained through writing? Something else completely. On the other hand, at least it’ll be full of Food, Science, Food Science [yes, seriously, that’s my job], and Adventures. Many many adventures.

    Thank you for the follow! By the way what do you research?

    • Hi! 🙂 my studies are in Food Science – specifically food safety (related). additionally, I do a lot of work in risk communication, social media, outreach and education (all with regards to food safety and regulation).

    What do you think of the paleo diet? One of my friends loves it, and i like the idea of it but I just cant shift from being a convenience eater. I prepare good dinners, but I eat anything and everything when I’m out and about! I want to be more a more conscious eater, but I’m just too much of a grubber :/

    • I know a few friends on the paleo diet. I actually think it’s a pretty funny thing…however…the “paleo diet” that everyone is expounding nowadays…isn’t…really…the “paleo” diet. Haha. So in that regards, I scoff at it (and what it’s “supposed to” represent).

      On the other hand, it’s actually a fairly healthy diet and has helped quite a lot of people out – in terms of figuring out what they can or can’t eat – in addition to helping them manage themselves. In that sense, I think it’s great.

      I am exactly like you: “prepare good dinner, but I eat anything and everything when I’m out and about!” At the same time, I’ve recently had to start really regulating what I’m eating again – started training again – so hahahah~ 😛

      Mmm~ there are many ways to be a more conscious eater. If you’re interested, shoot me an email – hopefully that’s not a weird thing to say – and we can talk about that. llyang@vt.edu or lily@lilyyang.org

      Yeah, but if you were to ask me if I’d ever do the paleo diet, definitely would have to say, “hell no” haha.
