Tuna nutritional value – Super food

I am constantly on the prowl for great tuna recipes because tuna is a nutritional powerhouse, a super food. In an article on WholeFoods®, Tuna steak ranked as one of the healthiest foods to include in your diet. ( Awesome Article ) Low in fat, calories and sodium. Nice! High in protein, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, niacin, and the ever elusive selenium. Nutritious! In addition, tuna has omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidant properties.
