Not only is tuna insanely delicious… it’s a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids. That, with potassium brings an anti-inflammatory effect to the cardiovascular system which lowers blood pressure and the risk of stroke and heart attacks. Of course, JRoc should be officially fixin hearts in 10 years or so… so we’ve got you covered either way 🙂
Oh! And on top of fantastic heart benefits, tuna is rich in zinc, manganese, vitamin C and selenium, that helps strengthen the immune system. #gohealth!
And now without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to the Ahi Tuna Tostada. Flavorful tuna marinated in soy-ginger, served on crispy tortillas and mashed avo. Mmmm… And as usual, they’re simple to prep!
