    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 nut...rition 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. Show Less Show More
