Healthy Living: Yellowfin Tuna with Pepper Garlic Crust


Yellowfin Tuna with Pepper Garlic CrustWhen we think about eating tuna, most of us think about tuna in a can.  While I have eaten plenty of tuna, I had never eaten a tuna filet until recently.  Tuna is very nutritional as a serving contains 179 calories, 1 gram of fat, zero carbs and 39 grams of protein.  A tuna fish sandwich has always been a staple around our house.

While dining out recently, I decided to be daring and try a seared tuna steak.  I’ve always eaten a lot of fish, but never had a tuna steak.  Wow!  It was light, healthy and delicious!  Since it was seared, it had the consistency of a tender steak rather than the flakiness of fish.  I liked it so much that I have prepared it at home several times over the past few weeks.  I found a great recipe at one of our recipe kiosks in our store.  These kiosks can be found in several of our stores and are a great resource for recipes.  Next time you want to cook a healthy meal try this easy and quick to prepare recipe:

Yellowfin Tuna with Pepper Garlic Crust

Healthy Living: Five Foods


I was looking through my folder of interesting articles and ran across an old one from Woman’s Day Magazine (July 2007, to be exact) called “The Five Most Underrated Foods.”  These are foods that don’t get the credit they deserve for being healthy.

So what are those 5 underrated foods?

 

  1. Strawberries: one cup has more vitamin C than an orange, plus fiber to help maintain blood sugar levels.
  2. Eggs: Eggs are great sources of choline (good for brain health) and protein, and the dietary cholesterol in eggs has been shown to not damage blood cholesterol levels significantly.
  3. Salmon: All fish are high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids but salmon has one of the highest levels.
  4. Avocados: They’re loaded with fat, but it’s the good-for-you monosaturated fat that can actually help reduce your bad cholesterol numbers.
  5. Kiwi: Two or three kiwi a day can help reduce blood clotting, which is a factor in heart attacks. Kiwi is also rich in fiber, which is important to protect against heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

I’m happy to say that I love all five of the five underrated foods. How about you?
