Get To Know Chiya

Favorite cultural dish or comfort food: Ramen

Go-to morning beverage: I usually either drink water or orange juice in the morning.

Sleep ritual I never forget: No matter what, I always try to do my skincare routine.

Grocery shopping tip: Have a shopping list ready beforehand. You will save time and will help stay within your budget as it curbs impulse buying.

How has your cultural culinary heritage shaped your approach to nutrition, and do you incorporate any traditional practices into your counseling? Growing up in a multicultural home and having a passion for exploring different cultures has deeply influenced my approach to nutrition. I incorporate patients’ cultural foods and practices into my counseling, recognizing the importance of their heritage in shaping healthy eating habits. This inclusive approach allows me to respect and integrate diverse culinary traditions into personalized nutrition plans.

Nutrition philosophy in a nutshell: Food should be enjoyable, not a source of fear or stress; all foods have a place in a balanced diet. By embracing a positive and inclusive approach to eating, we can foster a healthier relationship with food.
