When you need to fix your car, learn the latest tech or finish a major home improvement, what do you do?

You turn to the experts. Those with in-depth knowledge on how to do these tasks in the most efficient and effective way. You're looking to improve your health by focusing on improving your diet. Then it's also time to turn to the experts.

Nutritionists and registered dietitians are the thought leaders for improving your eating habits. We asked dietitian and nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner how to improve nutrition. Because we want to know how to start living a healthier life today.

She offers this advice:


Get organized.


Your environment can work for you or against you. Having an organized refrigerator can be the key to success on the journey to weight loss. Keep produce where it is visible and accessible. Healthy foods like hard-boiled eggs, chicken breasts, and vegetables store at eye-level. This helps to make smarter meal choices. Clear food containers help to keep already prepared meals top of mind and lessen food waste. This means saving money in the long run.


Practice food swaps.


Don't cut out food cravings - embrace them! Eat what you like but swap out processed stuff for fresh, wholesome ingredients. Avoid products with chemicals, refined sugars, and flours. Cut out artificial flavors and preservatives to lead a healthier lifestyle. When you fill the house with healthier foods, you'll eat smarter when hunger strikes.


Eat your "green base."


It can be difficult to make the right nutrition choices all the time. When you eat decadent foods like fried chicken or pizza, put it on a base of leafy greens. That way you will get to eat what you want. But you'll fill up more on your healthful greens and eat less of the high-calorie foods.

Set the table. 


One of the simplest ways to start eating less and enjoying food more is to eat all meals and snacks at the table. When you put food on a plate, eat at a table and sit in a chair you'll eat much less. People tend to eat more while working on the computer, watching TV, standing in the fridge or driving!

Build a better breakfast.


A healthy diet starts with a nutritious breakfast. Eat whole foods. Avoid pre-packaged foods high in calories and packed with preservatives.
