I'm Lillian: a health enthusiast in love with baking and hiking, curious about the world's hows and whys, and passionate about empowerment through knowledge. I am a Dietitian currently living in British Columbia, Canada. Being a Taiwanese-born Canadian, food has always been the mainstay of our culture. As an old Chinese idiom describes: “To people, food is the sky”, it is what brings people together and what keeps us alive. However, from the age of 10, I was asked to helped my grandfather prepare his daily insulin injections. With this, I began to question the role of food in our lives. Hence I embarked on a journey to seek how to change a culture that revolves around food to be a healthier one, and jumped into nutrition thinking it would allow me to combine all my passions into one: food, sciences and empowering people. I’ve come to understand food to be the beautiful thing that brings people together, and not something that needs change, but that people need to be equipped with knowledge in order to make healthy choices. My philosophy is balance; I believe that is the key to health and am eager to be a contributing member of society to advocate for this!
