Who doesn’t love tuna?
As I’ve told you before, it’s one of the most delicious and amazing ingredients of this world.
It’s so yummy and rich in nutrients, yet very inexpensive!
Tuna is amazing for your muscles and the biggest of your muscles – The HEART!! It’s a great source of omega-3 fatty acids which are the great regulators of the body’s anti-inflammatory functions and also prevent excessive inflammation.
But we’ve already spoken about Tuna before so let’s talk about the new bad boy on Slice of Fit – the Avocado.
This unique type of fruit is absolutely loaded with every health benefit you can ask for. In 100g of avocado you get the following extensive list of vitamins:
Vitamin K: 26% of the RDA.
Folate: 20% of the RDA.
Vitamin C: 17% of the RDA.
Potassium: 14% of the RDA.
Vitamin B5: 14% of the RDA.
Vitamin B6: 13% of the RDA.
Vitamin E: 10% of the RDA.
It also contains small amounts of Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorous, Vitamin A, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin) and B3 (Niacin). Additionally, avocados don’t contain any cholesterol or sodium and are also quite low in saturated fats.
They are super rich in Potassium – richer than a banana!! Potassium is amazing because it prevents cramps – a thing feared by a lot of athletes/ sportspeople and it supports healthy blood pressure levels.
Obviously, avocados are a very high-fat food but the good thing is that it’s all healthy fats – great for your eyes, skin, blood circulation, heart and blood pressure. They’re also rich in fiber which fills you up and aids digestion, reduces constipation and makes your gut happy!!
Overall, avocados are AWESOME and tuna is AWESOME! So why not combine them? We might as well do!!
