Who is Janae Bagley?
I am a Registered Dietitian with 8 years experience giving people textbook advice on feeding their children, their families and themselves. Now I'm a mom of two and find myself learning through real life experiences how to feed my family healthy food and "lose the baby weight." I started this blog with a goal to combine my textbook knowledge with real life experiences and share it with my readers.
I have experience counseling children and their families with diabetes, hyperlipidemia, food allergies, obesity, chronic diseases, breastfeeding difficulty and picky eating. I have also worked in public relations to promote childhood nutrition on the radio, live news, written articles and internet video clips including Arizona’s Channel 12 News and azcentral.com. I have been involved in developing and presenting nutrition at summer camps, and public health challenges.
My Nutrition Philosophy
A healthy diet is something you can do every day for the rest of your life.
- I don't support or promote popular diets or passing trends
- All foods fit in a healthy diet, some just need more space on our plate
- You shouldn't lose more than 1-2 lbs/week.
- 1/2 plate (or more) fresh fruits and vegetables
- Whole grains
- 1% milk, fat free milk, and/or plant based "milk" like coconut, soy or almond milk
- Eat meat sparingly (fish 1-2x/week, red meat 1-2x/month)
- Limit alcoholic beverages, drugs and cigarettes
