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.
I’m all about QUICK and EASY when it comes to dinner. With three busy kiddos, 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:
- Easy and Nutritious “Superhero” Green Pasta Recipe
- Weeknight One Pan Burrito Bowls
- This super easy and delicious One Pot Southwestern Chicken and Quinoa Skillet
- My Easy Roasted Squash Mac and Cheese
- Easy One-Pan Thai Prawn Green Curry
- 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). Side note: if you’re pregnant and have young kids, serving lower mercury tuna is important, especially if you’re enjoying it often.
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!
Without further ado, here are the delicious tuna recipes that your kids are sure to love!
