Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope you're having an awesome day today! I'm sure some of you are quite content as you might have the day off for Easter. Well, if you're celebrating Good Friday and can't eat meat, here is a new salad recipe for you, with tuna versus your regular chicken, or meat-based salads.
The main thing with tuna is to make sure that it's water-packed versus oil-packed to ensure that you're not adding any highly saturated fats to your diet. Also, water-packed tuna contains a slightly higher dose of omega 3's into your diet, which are great for reducing inflammation and also lowering your risk of various chronic diseases, such as heart disease, arthritis or diabetes.
Anyways, here is the salad - super yummy & full of protein, omega's and good fats!
