Introducing Amanda Wagner Nutrition LLC!

I have exciting news!

And no, it’s not that I cut my hair even shorter than it already was. Although that is also true (see above for a photo after my haircut last week).πŸ˜‚

My news: I’m officially & FINALLY opening my private practice Amanda Wagner Nutrition LLC! πŸ₯³

This has been a dream of mine since I left the teaching profession in spring 2018 & went back to school to study to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) in fall 2018. 🀩

I’m not going to lie, taking this leap of faith IS scary. 😱 Initially I wanted to wait a couple years before launching my own business. I’m only been a RDN for about 10 months. But as my husband reminded me, there will NEVER be an ideal time. And when unexpectedly & recently a change in my employment situation occurred (hours), my husband encouraged me saying β€œisn’t now as good of a time as any to finally open your own business?” So here I am! Yesterday was opening day! πŸ’ƒ

Are you an athlete or person who is thinking about becoming vegan, vegetarian, or plant-based or you already are? Then you are in the right place! I’m here to show you that you can thrive in life & athletics fueled by plants! 🌱You’re of course welcome here even if you aren’t plant-based. You will still find valuable sports & general nutrition tips here!

Learn more about working with me here!

And for free ways to support me today & moving forward, please consider signing up for my new newsletter or sharing this post or that I’m open with your communities! ☺️

Moving forward, I will be working as the owner of my private practice & continuing as a team member of Lauren Sharifi’s private practice working with ARFID. I’m so excited to serve the communities I’m most passionate about in my next journey! πŸ₯°

Have a great weekend! πŸ€— And let me know if you have any questions below or contact me!

Why The Name Change?

Hi everyone! 

You may have noticed the new website name & social media handles a couple weeks ago! I promise I am still the same black bean queen! #teamblackbeans4life

BUT it was time for a change. Especially since I will offically be a licensed and practicing Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) in less than a year! I honestly cannot believe it! All that stands in my way is my required dietetic internship (where I gain ~1200 hours of practical experience) and then I have to sit for & pass my licensure exam. I’m nervous & excited for this new chapter in my life, so please send all the good vibes my way! And comment below or e-mail me if you want me to write about either the journey to becoming a RDN or my experience in my dietetic internship. It’s definitely going to be an interesting several months with the global coronavirus pandemic….

But now you’re probably wondering, why the name change?! Especially since I’ve been the Black Bean Queen for nearly 6 years and black beans are my favorite food. Seriously. πŸ˜›

The answer: I wanted my website and social media handles to better reflect my goals: to inspire other runners + athletes, show that you can be a successful athlete by eating vegetarian, vegan, or plant-based, & to give ideas on HOW to eat to be a successful veggie athlete! There are some exciting things in the works on my end, but that’s all I’m going to say for now. πŸ˜‰ Have a great evening, friends! πŸ™‚
