BONUS HEALTH BENEFITS!
Have you been using my A to Z Plant Nutrition ebook? Well, inside we outlined the key benefits of more than 80 fruits and veggies.
In this recipe we are including tomatoes which have lycopene which is believed to support bone health! They also have a compound called alpha-tomatine which is believed to help "kill" cancer cells. Plus when tomatoes are eaten raw they have lots of vitamin C content. 💪
Also, tuna is a great source of your omega-3 fatty acids, which we talked about in my recent post on How To Keep The Winter Blues Away.
