Make MyPlate Pinterest Challenge

USDA ChooseMyPlate Logo

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.

Meal planning to meet this goal just got a lot easier!  MyPlate now has a mouth-watering fish entrĂ©es board on Pinterest that highlights healthful seafood recipes from all over the most popular recipe websites.  We’re so excited about this new go-to resource for guaranteed good-for-you fish recipes that we’ve decided to try them out and tell you what we think.  Join us and take the MyPlate Pinterest Challenge by making a recipe from the MyPlate fish entrĂ©es Pinterest board twice a week.

 

Welcome Harris and Rima

On October 29, 2012 (my dad’s birthday!) we welcomed baby Harris McGuire into our family. 

 
He stared at us wide awake for four hours after he was born until he finally took his first nap, and has not been a big fan of sleep in the three months since then.
 
 
On Christmas Eve I made the mistake of drinking a cup of coffee in the afternoon, and we were ALL up waiting for Santa.
 
 
But beyond that, he is a true joy and brings out the best in us.
 
 
Well, mostly a joy.  
 
 
To serve in my new role as Harris’s mama while continuing to get the good word out about eating fish, I am back from maternity leave on a part-time schedule and am thrilled to welcome Rima Kleiner, MS, RD as my new counterpart. Rima has already been blogging here and moving forward, we will both contribute.
 
Looking forward to sharing our adventures in eating healthy, seafood-rich diets as parents (a whole new ball game!).

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.
