Celebrity nutritionist Keri Glassman is back with some delicious healthy harvest recipes. The weather is getting colder and these recipes are just what you need for a cozy fall evening.
Who doesn’t love nachos? Keri’s version uses a sweet potato for the “nachos” so it allows you to eat the whole thing! As psychiatrist Dr. Ish Major says, “It’s nachos without the guilt!” Keri slices the sweet potato thin and then piles on black beans, peppers and onions. She says if you’d like you can add chicken, cheese, and/or guacamole. The sweet potato provides lots of fiber including resistant starch which helps control your blood sugar and all the other veggies provide a host of nutritional benefits as well.
Soup is the ultimate cold-weather food and Keri has a recipe for a butternut squash and broccoli rabe soup to share. Keri says that cans of soup are often loaded with artificial ingredients and sodium and making your own soup isn’t hard to do.
The butternut squash has Vitamin A which is great for the immune system as is the ginger and garlic. They are also both good for anti-inflammation and heart health. Keri says this soup is simply vegetable or chicken broth, butternut squash, broccoli rabe simmered for about 20 minutes and then added to a blender. It’s so easy!
The last dish looks really fancy comments OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry but Keri promises it’s so easy to make. This dish is an apple crumble and Keri says “It’s essentially like eating oatmeal and apples for breakfast but you think you’re eating a full-on decadent dessert!” The dish has apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, oats, a little coconut oil and a tiny bit of either maple syrup or honey. Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra says “It tastes like the perfect fall dessert.”
