Tuna

Both water and oil-packed tuna can be used create a healthy recipe. At the market, the most common water-packed varieties are albacore and chunk light. Albacore comes from a larger species and has a milder flavor, while chunk light comes from a smaller fish and tends to have a stronger flavor. Three ounces of tuna canned in water has around 100 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 22 grams of protein.

Oil-packed varieties have more calories and fat than water-packed tuna, and the price is usually higher than water-packed. Three ounces has about 170 calories, 7 grams of fat and 25 grams of protein. Splurge on oil-packed on a special occasion and drain to help remove some of the fat.

Tuna is even more convenient than ever — you don’t even need  can opener to enjoy it; you can now find tuna in pouches. The pouches are available in the same oil and water-packed varieties with similar nutritional content to canned. Some companies like Starkist also pack their tuna in extra-virgin olive oil or sunflower oil and have low-sodium options available.

Eating Healthy…

Eating healthy is not supposed to be a punishment. At first it may be tough but once you  have done it for a while you will start to feel better and look better. Eating healthy can also taste good. Fruits and vegetables are very important because they both have a lot of vitamins and nutrients. I would much rather eat healthy because it is not processed like all bagged food. Combining a bunch of healthy foods can turn your dinner into a healthy meal.  And after that healthy meal you can make a nice fruit dessert! Just decide on eating healthy.
