Tuna has become one of the most valued and desirable fish in the market. Its delicious taste and global availability makes it an ideal replacement for red meat or for those who like to add some healthy variety to their diets.
Some of the health benefits include its ability to reduce cardiovascular conditions, stimulate growth and development, lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and to help in weight loss.
Next is a breakfast recipe made from oats, a species of cereal grain grown for its seed. Oats are suitable for human consumption in the form of oatmeal or rolled oats. The food is low in saturated fat, and also very low in cholesterol and sodium. It is also a good source of dietary fiber.
