My name is Vienna, but everyone just calls me V. I'm a food science major in my third year of school. For as long as I can remember I've loved grocery shopping but have never actually enjoyed cooking. I've always just kind of left that to my parents. But lately I've been trying my hand at it. And shocker... it's kind of fun.
I've been a dancer and active in fitness my whole life, and nutrition has been a growing part of that since I was in the ninth grade and watched Dad preparing for a triathlon. It fascinated me how food and performance worked hand in hand with each other. Now my friends all come to me for nutritional advice but I'm finding I'm not able to provide as much practical advice (food prep and cooking) as I'm able to provide theoretical advice. So I'm on a mission to learn more, so when I tell someone to eat more veggies, and they ask how to prepare them so they're tasty and healthy I won't just say, "Ummm, google it."
I'm a big veggie eater, but not a vegetarian. Opposite of veggies I don't particularly like breads, rices, and pasta. I love Mediterranean food and don't like Italian (don't hate for it). And my cooking skills rank one step above making cold cereal and one step below cooking an egg over-easy.
So that's me. I'm looking forward to lots of reading and learning
