Healthy Tuna Salad Recipes for a Quick, Easy Meal

The temptation of that fast-food burger or large pepperoni pizza with extra cheese may be appealing on occasion, but when these foods are consumed too often they can actually be dangerous for your health. According to a study from upwards of 36 per cent, or one in three people, in North America are detrimentally obese. Far from being simply about physical aesthetics, being overweight can have a number of negative impacts on the body's overall health which can range from fatigue to muscle atrophy for the morbidly obese and has even been linked to cases of depression.
Eating a diet rich in seafood is not only a delicious menu option, but significantly helps control cholesterol, heart rate, and brain function. A single serving of tuna for example contains 19g or more of protein but comes in at only an astounding 1g of fat making it an easy choice when it comes to preparing a quick and nutritious dinner. Combined with proper exercise, enjoying one of the many healthy tuna salad recipes available can help ensure that your heart beats long enough for you to live a rich and happy life full of vitality, energy, and overall good health while also maintaining a healthy body weight.
