Healthy and delicious lunch: Tuna with Balsamic Vinegar

Tuna is full of Omega 3 fatty acids which actually good for the heart and is full of protein.

Have it with whole wheat toast which is full of fiber, that lowers your cholesterol.

SInce most people eat tuna with mayonnaise which is full of fat and cholesterol, I suggest substituting the mayonnaise with balsamic vinegar. For the oil and vinegar taste effect, splash some olive oil on the sandwich.

For more taste or garnish, add a red onion slice which is not only has antioxidants, but also good for, believe it or not, fighting against stomac cancer.

For more fiber, add a couple slices of romaine lettuce which will also has vitamin E (antioxidants for your heart and improves skin tone) .

If you are really daring, try dressing up this sandwich with some Smart Bacon (made of soy, not animal fats). Smart Bacon tastes pretty decent, but is not as tasty as regular bacon and is very dry.  That is only because Smart Bacon has no grease, which is what makes regular bacon so juicy. So, what I do is brush it with a little olive oil and some lemon juice. I find that the lemon juice really brings out the flavor. I have not tried this yet, but maybe, you can marinate the Smart Bacon in lemon juice for a couple of hours before using it. It may add some vitamin C to it.

Health Benefits of Peaches
Peaches and nectarines are good sources of lycopene and lutein.  Lutein gives the red,
orange, and yellow colors to fruits and vegetables.  These phytochemicals are especially
beneficial in the prevention of heart disease, macular degeneration, and cancer. 

Vitamin c present in peaches is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Its anti-inflammatory activity may decrease the incidence of asthma symptoms. A large preliminary study has shown that young children with asthma experience significantly less wheezing if they eat a diet high in fruits rich in vitamin C.

A diet high in fiber prevents coronary heart disease. Eating fruits high in the soluble fiber pectin has also been linked with reduced cholesterol levels, which protects against atherosclerosis.

A diet high in antioxidants may protect against the free-radical-damaging effect of environmental toxins or cigarette smoke. Studies comparing different populations have shown that increasing fruit consumption may reduce the risk of developing chronic bronchitis.

Other health benefits of peaches:

  • Prevents bruising
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Strengthens your capillaries
  • Lowers risk of cataracts
  • Lowers risk of diabetes
