So lately I’ve been super into eating tuna fish sandwiches. Everyone has their own opinion on them, but ultimately I’ve found them to be a quick, healthy, filling, and very delicious snack or meal.
Tuna is an excellent source of lean protein, niacin and vitamin B-6. It also provides nearly an entire day’s recommended dietary allowance of antioxidant selenium and vitamin B-12, which is essential to keep your nervous system working and to synthesize red blood cells and DNA. You’ll also get omega-3 fatty acids. A 3-ounce serving of canned light tuna supplies at least 10 percent of your daily intake of the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA. These unsaturated fats reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by preventing inflammation and lowering cholesterol and triglycerides.
This is my rendition of a tuna fish sandwich, the Boujee Tuna, AKA. Bouj Tūn for short.
The Bouj Tūn has just 362 calories. These calories are nutrient-dense and packed with protein, fiber, heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and a variety of vitamins and minerals. It’s made with protein wheat bread (didn’t even know that existed), tuna, light miracle whip, celery, red onion, romaine hearts, and salt and pepper to taste. In each 362 calorie sandwich you have 41 grams of protein, 27 grams of carbs, and 8.5 grams of fat, making this an all-around great meal, whether you’re trying to slim down, bulk up, or manage your current weight.
