The FDP team was lucky enough to meet Registered Dietitian Jen Haugen on a recent trip to Minnesota. She has partnered with Mower Refreshed to become a family dinner champion in her community and we couldn’t be more excited to have her on The Family Dinner Project Team! This Lemony Walnut-Crusted Fish Fillets Recipe is a great start!

This recipe comes straight from Jen’s fabulous website, Down-to-Earth Dietitian.
