Cooking with the Moms

When it comes to the many outstanding health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids and the best food and supplement sources out there, you may have a lot of questions. Now, thanks to this week's show, we're serving up the answers. Joining us on the show is nutrition consultant, Melanie Zook, MA, RD, founder of Fresh Start Nutrition and expert extraordinaire when it comes to all things omega. On the show, Melanie brings us up to speed on the latest omega-3 research, offers a list of the best food sources, and shares insight into supplementation. For our part, we deliver a new recipe for Triple-Omega Crispy Shrimp, a nutrient-rich finger food you and your kiddos will love. (We also have a giveaway for a free phone consult with Melanie and $100.00 worth of Nordic Naturals omega-3 supplements!)
