    My sister, Carlie, and her friend, Connie, left me late Monday night to return to their lives in Texas.  Before we said goodbye (yes, I did cry) they prepared a delicious last supper. Connie’s family is Cambodian and her traditional cooking skills are no less precious than gold.

    Our Big Island trip was a blast. I don’t like to be discriminatory, but have long maintained I can’t be friends with finicky eaters. And I definitely cannot travel with them. Happily, the five of us girls were all on the same page of the Big Island guidebook – best local, low-key restaurants.&nbs

    This week I'm on a whirlwind business trip with meetings in four cities.  The schedule is packed, so fare like airport nachos (pleasantly tasty, by the way) is serving as our sustenance.  Not a big deal for a couple days, plus I made sure to enter the trip nice and nourished.

Jennifer McGuire, MS, RD

As a nutrition science translator, blogger, media critic, and new mom, I believe the most important nutrition advice I can give is to only take nutrition advice from sound sources.  I earned my Master of Science Degree in Nutrition Communication from Tufts University in Boston, MA and my undergraduate degree in Communication Studies from Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX. I am credentialed as a Registered Dietitian (RD) and belong to the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), as well as the Food and Culinary Professionals practice group of the AND.

As a dietitian for the National Fisheries Institute, I work to help families enjoy seafood-rich diets.  Fish and shellfish not only boost our brain and heart health, they can be fast, simple, and delicious.  My favorite people to relish a good meal with are my husband, Lloyd, and infant son, Harris.


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.
