These three easy and healthy tuna recipes will always be on the top of my list for weeknight meals! I love using tuna because it’s economical, versatile and super nutritious.
Like I mentioned in my BT interview, I’m all about QUICK and EASY when it comes to dinner. With two kids under five and one on the way, it’s not realistic for me to create elaborate meal plans every week (I admire those Moms that do!) or make gourmet meals every night. Instead, I have a list of go-to dinners (of which I change up every now and then) that I can make in 30-40 minutes or less. I make sure that always have the ingredients needed for these meals on hand.
Some of our Fall/Winter go-to meals include:
This super easy and delicious One Pot Southwestern Chicken and Quinoa Skillet
This crock-pot chicken noodle soup by my friend Maija
and this delicious DIY Kung Pao Chicken Recipe
These easy and healthy options will always be on the top of my list for weeknight meals, but this week I’ve officially added three new meals to the rotation, all featuring tuna! I love using tuna because it’s economical, versatile and super healthy. I choose chunk or flaked light varieties most of the time because it is lower in mercury than chunk white tuna (albacore). Because I’m pregnant and have young kids, serving lower mercury tuna is important, especially if we’re enjoying it often. I love the Ocean’s Pole and Line variety because the tuna is caught in a more sustainable, environmentally friendly way–the old fashioned pole and line way!
Tuna is an excellent source of protein, is low in saturated fat and provides Omega-3 fatty acids which is important for brain and eye development in-utero as well as during childhood. Omega-3’s are also important for heart health!
