"Before I took this job as a nutritionist, I seldom cook. But now, I am good at cooking since I watch cooking every day," said Long.

In accordance with cosmonauts'' training intensity and body conditions, the food list for astronauts must be changed every week with feedbacks from every astronaut and their chefs.

"Sometimes it is hard to make the recipe, because astronauts need both nutrition and new taste", said Long.

According to Long, most astronauts likes spicy Sichuan dishes, which are more appetizing for them after a day''s hard training.

Every astronaut has his nutrition record, through which nutritionists could make tailor-made recipe plans to help them recover from tough training.

Every time when astronauts are having meals, Long is always sitting beside them, asking how they enjoy the food and their advice for improvement.

"Every day, I am concerned about two things most. First, whether or not the astronauts enjoy their food, second, how is my son''s appetite today?"
