About Eat Yer Veggies
Eat Yer Veggies is a nutrition coaching practice and resource hub fueled by the notion that food is medicine at all stages of life. We specialize in the treatment of autoimmune diseases, Candida yeast infections, digestive issues, food sensitivities and intolerances, and cardiology. We believe that, for the vast majority of health problems, consuming more healthy foods such as vegetables will almost always improve health status – or, as we say, eat yer veggies! We are also passionate about the intersection between health and sustainability, advocating that this intersection promotes the greatest healing and best health outcomes.
We offer individual nutrition coaching sessions, corporate cooking and nutrition classes, and presentations for speaking engagements. In-person individual nutrition coaching sessions are available to those who are able to travel to our physical office in Brooklyn, New York. We also offer virtual individual sessions to Colorado state residents, and to residents of other states as permitted by state laws.
We love working with corporations to bring fun, entertaining, and educational cooking and nutrition classes to your work team. Let’s cook dinner together and talk food!
About Caylee Clay
Eat Yer Veggies was created by Caylee Clay, a dietitian-nutritionist and yoga instructor. With a personal diagnosis of psoriasis, an autoimmune disease, Caylee is pushing the boundaries on our understanding of autoimmune diseases. Her life’s work and research is centered on how healthy foods, medicinal herbs, and holistic lifestyles changes can promote better outcomes for those who suffer from autoimmune conditions and other chronic conditions.
Caylee completed her postgraduate Dietetic Internship at Hunter College and holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from New York University. Caylee has studied under leaders in the health and nutrition world, including completing an independent study and graduate work with Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics. She also is a 200-hour certified yoga instructor.
Caylee’s interest in nutrition began with her own health problems. Growing up, Caylee was primarily exposed to packaged ultra processed foods with questionable ingredients. As a result, she suffered from chronic headaches and stomach aches, that finally were relieved once she changed her diet to healthier foods. As someone who had to learn how to enjoy healthy foods herself, Caylee knows how to work with you no matter what your food choices currently look like.
Caylee is passionate about environmental causes and believes that a more sustainable future necessarily includes promoting healthier diets, and vice versa. When she isn’t cooking tried-and-true favorite recipes or discovering new ones, Caylee loves to spend her spare time hiking in forests, getting dirty in the garden, and biking around New York City.
