I'll just bet you have a can or two of tuna in your pantry right now. Am I right? Are you a light tuna in oil kind of person, or a chunk white tuna all of the time cause it tastes like chicken gal - or guy? I could actually go either way, depending on the use. I have absolutely no research on this, but I'm gonna guess that canned tuna is perhaps the world's most favorite go-to protein whether you're on a budget, need something healthy, filling and substantial, or you just can't think of what to make or eat.
Tuna is an awesome source of protein (a 5- ounce can has a good 20 grams), as well as those heart and brain-healthy omega-3 fats. As we probably all know, canned tuna has a nice long shelf life, so it's great to keep on hand for when you need a healthy fish meal, but don't have time to run to the fish counter. And canned tuna isn't just for sandwiches or tuna noodle casserole people - as these recipes from some of my favorite food bloggers clearly prove! Stock up, step away from the mayo and toaster, and let's get creative!
