Re-inventing Fast Foods for Healthy Living

It’s that time of year again, after all the holiday celebrations have wound down, when many of us make resolutions to eat healthier.  Opt for the salad instead of the fries, choose 100% whole wheat over white, select lighter dressings over creamier ones.  These are all good choices.  But what if you could have your cake and eat it too? 

Take a moment to check out how we have Re-Invented Fast Food.  With these delicious recipes, we can still have Burgers, Tacos & Pizza to name a few, but in a healthier way.  They have less fat, sodium, and calories without compromising on taste! 

Consider incorporating one recipe into your menu at least once a week and you'll be a step closer to achieving your healthier-living goals.
 

GUILT-FREE PIZZA & BURGER 

Personal Naan Pizza        
Our calorie conscious, yet fully loaded pizza is easy to prepare, and is ideal for families with hectic after-school schedules. Made with our sundried tomato and basil flavoured light tuna.

Captain Burger with Bacon and Cheese   Our burger delivers on taste through a fusion of cleverly combined ingredients. Serve it with crinkle-cut veggie sticks for a healthy side dish! Made using our kid friendly tomato & onion flavoured light tuna.

 

LEAN TEX-MEX TIME

Chili Thai Tacos  
This meal is simple, scrumptious and quick to the table, where the family assembles each taco to their liking, using any of our flavoured light tuna products, like Spicy Thai Chili.  
 

Hooked On Tuna Burrito

FROM THE EAST

Spicy Tuna Pad Thai
That peanut-y, sweet & spicy medley tantalizes the palate as you quickly slurp the long string noodles. Made using our Spicy Thai Chili and Spicy Peanut Satay flavoured tuna varieties.

Original Shawarma
Take a breather between bites as you wolf down this lip-smacking wrap – containing a yogurt-y cucumber and dill sauce drizzled over a mixture of both our Garlic & Hot Pepper flavoured tuna and our Lemon & Pepper flavoured tuna, with a dash of some warm, earthy cumin spice.

THIS MONTH'S ARTICLE

Nutrition to Lower your Blood Cholesterol!

A blood test will determine your ‘bad’ cholesterol and triglycerides levels, both of which causes buildup of plaque in the arteries, leading to heart disease and stroke.

So seek out more of the following nutrients to help lower those levels –

  • Omega-3 fats found in fatty fish (salmon, sardines), ground flax seeds, walnuts and canola oil,
  • Unsaturated fats found in olive oil, nuts, seeds, avocados and fish, and
  • Fibre rich foods like whole grain breads, bran cereals, beans/legumes and fruits & veggies.

At the same time, ease up on –

  • Trans fat found in some margarines, and in packaged foods in large amounts,
  • Saturated fats from marbled meats, skin on poultry, high-fat dairy foods, butter and margarine,
  • Simple Sugars & Refined Grains available in sweets, pop, desserts and white bread,
  • Alcohol in excessive amounts, and
  • Calories by reducing caloric intake.
