Benefits of Tuna

Tuna is one of my favorite protein based foods. I choose to eat more fish than chicken and red meat. Tuna is PACKED with protein as well as a ton of essential vitamins and minerals your body needs. Tuna also contains omega-3s which can help prevent heart issues and provide our body with anti-inflammatories.


Instead of munching on chips and candy, find your favorite veggies and fruit to grab instead! If you don't buy and keep junk in your house, you won't eat it! Don't torture yourself and leave temptations in your house. Keep healthy options!
