About Victoria

I’m a full-time doctoral student new Ph.D. graduate of I/O Psychology, part-time consultant senior consultant, and full-time thinker about food (I hate the word foodie).

I  am an almond-lover (my friends call me Marzi Pan). I also have a penchant for Orbit spearmint gumgnocchi, popcorn with nutritional yeast, coffee, Theo’s chocolate, ginger beer, Thai food, and avocado milkshakes. I avoid frosting, shiitake mushrooms, and super spicy food.

I like to stay active by doing a lot of walking, biking, rock climbing, and snowboarding.

When I’m not writing my dissertation writing articles related to my dissertation, climbing, or spending time with my boyfriend and friends, I lust after images of food online, try out new recipes, dine out, and yelp.

Because I once gained (then lost) 30 lbs (a lot of weight for someone my height, and a lot of weight by any standards, actually), I know how easy it is to overindulge and lose track of one’s health, yet I also know a little bit about what it takes to reach your goal weight and maintain it (see below for 2008 Vicki and 2010 Vicki).

With that said, I strive to find balance between enjoying guilty pleasures in food and sensible eating–what I call victorious eating. I hope to inspire you with these food-related posts to find the balance to indulge without guilt while eating sensibly as well. Here’s to eating victoriously!
