I’m Jana Banana, RD. I’m a registered dietitian and am passionate about sharing nutrition information and helping others to live a healthy lifestyle.
Being an RD, there’s alot of pressure to “practice what you preach”, and through this blog I will share my adventures of finding balance between healthy eating and indulging in some of my favorite foods (like ice cream and red velvet cake…drool!!!)
I love trying new recipes (especially baking!) and checking out restaurants. I’m an alum of Marquette University and University of Michigan, and cheer on my teams every chance I can get!
Over the past couple of years, I have become a RUNNER and have completed 4 half marathons, as well as the 2013 Madison to Chicago Ragnar Relay and 2014 Chicago Marathon!
Currently, I work as a dietitian for the WIC program in the Chicago area, where I provide nutrition education and counseling for low income women, infants, and children.
