About

I’m Jana Banana, RD.  I’m a registered dietitian and lactation consultant, and am passionate about sharing nutrition information and helping others to live a healthy lifestyle.

As a dietitian, there’s alot of pressure to “practice what you preach”, and through this blog I will share my attempts to find balance between healthy eating and indulging in some of my favorite foods (like ice cream and red velvet cake!)

I love trying new recipes and checking out restaurants.  I graduated from Marquette University and University of Michigan, and cheer on my teams every chance I get!

I have completed 5 half marathons, as well as the 2013 Madison to Chicago Ragnar Relay and 2014 Chicago Marathon!  I also enjoy trying out fitness classes, videos, etc.

My husband, Rob, and I have been married for 5 years and live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.  In July 2016, we welcomed a little boy named Gavin and he definitely keeps us on our toes!

Currently, I work as a dietitian and lactation consultant for the WIC program in the Chicago area, where I provide nutrition and breastfeeding education and counseling for low income women, infants, and children.

Have a nutrition or breastfeeding question?  Feel free to contact me at JanaBananaRD@gmail.com or via social media.
