Tuna is very popular in a lot of countries because it is so low in fat and calories but high in protein. It’s perfect for people who want to add more protein to their diet while keeping their calories low. Here we will look at the best things you can make with tuna to maintain a balanced, healthy diet. 

For more information on the health benefits of tuna. 

1. Healthy Canned Tuna Pasta Salad

Just like the length of the video, this recipe is short and easy. All you need is some pasta, tuna, green beans, yogurt, celery, onions, red wine vinegar, salt and black pepper. 

It’s an excellent option for lunch tomorrow!

2. Canned Tuna Wrap Recipe

Here’s an idea! Quick and easy fix, not to mention healthy. I love wraps and this is one that needs to be on your list. Once again, the ingredients are simple and the video is less than a minute long. Just watch it then make it.

3. Grilled Tuna Steaks

We all know grilling takes priority over frying when it comes to healthy eating, so it’s no surprise that on this list is a grilled option. 

Enjoy a moist and flavourful tuna steak with this recipe. You will be sure to make this again and again after you’ve tried it once.

4. Tuna Noodle Casserole

Ohh comfort food! I’ve missed you. This casserole is an excellent meal on just about any day. It’s not as quick as the other recipes but it’s worth the time and effort.

5. Tuna Salad Sandwich

Last but not least is our sandwich. No week is complete without one. This follows a similar method to the salad and the wrap recipe so it should be no problem to prepare.

All the ingredients to make these dishes are easy to find and affordable so it should not be too difficult for you.
