As the temperature drops, clothing and bedding are not the only things that need to be switched out to accommodate the seasonal change. Eating warmer, comforting but healthy foods keeps you cozy and happy during the fall and winter months. My go to fall choices are easy slow cooker meals, hot soup recipes, and quick teas.

The challenge for me is creating enough variety to stave off boredom. (Ex: Gluten-free avocado toast for breakfast, smoothie for lunch, grilled salmon on salad for dinner on a monotonous daily loop makes me want to eat a vat of truffle mac and cheese and fries!)

Since I am not a nutritionist or a chef, I prefer to turn to the experts to navigate my culinary journey. Today, I’m talking to my friend Keri Glassman who is a nationally recognized celebrity nutritionist, registered dietitian, healthy cooking expert and published author. Keri is the founder and president of Keri Glassman, Nutritious Life, a nutrition practice and health and wellness brand. She has created her own line of supplements including a delicious vegan protein powder.

Keri has simplified the process of eating healthy for any season, and has been a leader in advancing a “whole person” approach to health and wellness, which really resonates with me. I asked Keri for simple suggestions for all of us to eat better and more healthfully, no matter where we may be in our personal food journey and eating life.

Keri’s holistic and inclusive approach makes healthy eating accessible to all. @terri_cole (Click to Tweet!)

She teaches about how to make good and then better choices. She does this minus the black and white, right or wrong judgments that many nutritionists can employ. Keri inspires us to learn, which is why she also has founded The Nutrition School, a twelve week online course created to provide an unprecedented nutrition education and can be used as a springboard for building a successful career in the health and wellness industry. (New session starts July 1, enrollment is open now!) The course is not exclusively for professionals, it is open to the curious layperson who wants to become better educated about what to eat and why.

I start with people where they can do something they’re already doing, but make a tweak to it that will give them a big result.” – Keri Glassman
