The United States Department of Agriculture says twice a week, make seafood the protein on your plate. Increase the amount and variety of seafood consumed by choosing seafood in place of some meat and poultry.
We have an address! It's been a while since Lloyd and I have had a real, stand alone address, but tomorrow we're getting the key for the beautiful unit we'll be calling home here in Hawaii. We were on the fence between buying and renting, but in the end renting won out because a) we won't be here long enough for buying to make sense, b) the task of renovating a home could put a serious kink in the carefree island weekends we have in mind, and c) this place was too lovely to pass up. It's got a dedicated home office, outdoor spaces including a private courtyard with grill, and it's located in Kaneohe just around the bay from base. Of course in every single place we looked at, my eyes went straight to the kitchen, and the one we ended up with is wonderful. I can barely contain my excitement to cook that first meal after we move in! It could get a little over the top.
Thursday after we found our home, we celebrated with dinner at Buzz's Steakhouse. It's probably our favorite restaurant in the area - comfortable ambiance right on the beach, friendly service, and outstanding food with healthful options. I got the Ahi Caesar salad, which I had enough of to also eat yesterday for lunch.
Rima Kleiner, MS, RD
I am passionate about good food, cooking, and helping others prepare healthy and tasty meals. Fish—packed with omega-3 fatty acids and protein—is a staple of those meals. In my role as a registered dietitian with the National Fisheries Institute, I track and translate the latest news on the nutritional benefits of seafood. My background includes degrees in Human Nutrition and Communications. I work with food and beverage groups, as well as individuals, teach nutrition to culinary students and create wellness programs for employers. I also often provide commentary for news media. When I am not cooking a healthy meal or running after my two young children, you can find me running, hiking or practicing yoga.
Jennifer McGuire, MS, RD
I am a registered dietitian with the National Fisheries Institute, so fish is my nutrition forte. I earned my BA in Communication from Southwestern University. During college, one of my very favorite evening outings was a leisurely trip to the grocery market. My passion for food was undeniable, so I combined both of my interests by earning my MS in Nutrition Communication from Tufts University in Boston, MA. As well as my Registered Dietitian (RD) credential through the University of Delaware. I live in Beaufort, SC where my husband serves as a US Marine Corps Judge Advocate. I love to entertain, travel, watch reality TV, grill outdoors, run, and practice yoga.
