Sheri Glazier, an Oklahoma rancher and registered dietitian, knows a thing or two about creating nutrient-rich meals for her on-the-go family. While she makes coordinating family logistics - on-farm meal deliveries, kids’ schedules - and client consults look seamless, she’s an ordinary mom doing extraordinary things. With a bachelors and masters in nutritional sciences from Oklahoma State University, Sheri uses her education and on-the-job skills as a nutrition consultant, speaker, and culinary creator. Recently, she was named Oklahoma’s Dietitian of the Year and awarded the Rising Star award from her alma mater, the OSU College of Human Sciences. With beef as a meal staple, ensuring her husband Kyle, and two children consume essential nutrients like B-vitamins, zinc, and iron is easy. The closest town, Loyal, Okla., holds a population of 79, which gives Sheri a unique perspective on intentional grocery shopping and preparing meals for families.
Cook's Tip: Serve pinwheels with a cooked whole grain such as faro, bulgur or quinoa. Chunks of zucchini and yellow squash can be used in place of tomatoes.
