Healthy canned tuna recipes for lunch and dinner.
Canned tuna is a quick, healthy and delicious option for lunch, dinner or a quick snack. Canned albacore tuna has low levels of mercury, is higher in omega-3 fats than chunk light tuna and is a sustainable choice if it’s labeled as troll- or pole-caught, from the U.S. or British Columbia. Another healthy choice is chunk light tuna, which comes from the smaller skipjack or yellowfin, is high in omega-3 fats and has less mercury than canned white albacore tuna. The FDA/EPA advises that women who are or might become pregnant, nursing mothers and young children consume no more than 6 ounces of albacore a week; up to 12 ounces of canned light tuna is considered safe.
