About me

Location New York, New York, United States
Introduction I am interested in food, both in its delights and its disorders. Four (!) years ago I recovered from an eating disorder, and I write about food, cooking, and other forms of nourishment -- the things that satisfy my belly-hunger and my yearning for a richer life. The obligatory bio: I am a 26-year-old, recently-married New Yorker, obsessed with languages and Latin America, and sharing an affinity for fine lace, two-wheeled vehicles, and home cooking. I returned to school to start a Ph.D. in clinical psychology in Fall 2009, with a concentration in health psychology. Note: I am not specializing in eating disorder treatment or research, but from time to time I read the literature and form my own conclusions. Due to privacy concerns, I prefer to write under a pseudonym. Ai Lu is the name that my Chinese in-laws gave me before I traveled to Beijing several years ago; but I'm as White as they come.
Interests knitting, cooking, reading, road biking, latin america, portuguese, spanish, music, china, buddhism, eating disorders, clinical psychology

Well, maybe they don't need them, but don't you think that some fish might like a bicycle?

I am a woman who doesn't need a man but adores the one I've got; I also like my Fuji Roubaix and can't imagine things being any different if I were a fish.
