Tuna Steak is such a healthy protein too; it’s nice and lean and full of Omega 3. You may have heard about the benefits of Omega 3 or seen a bunch of ads about it, but what is it actually? Omega 3 is an important fatty acid that reduces cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. According to the Heart Foundation, Omega 3 is a polyunsaturated fat, which, in addition to monounsaturated fats, are the healthy fats that should be eaten in place of those unhealthy saturated fats found in lots of processed and packaged foods. The most common way to find Omega 3 for your diet is in marine food, like this seared tuna steak includes! If you’re buying fish or other seafood, it’s really important to make sure you’ve checked it for the MSC Certified Sustainable Seafood blue logo that will be located somewhere on the packaging. If you’re wondering which seafoods are sustainably produced and which are not, check out this guide from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)’s website!
You can also get Omega 3 from plant-based sources like walnuts, canola oil, linseeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds and soybean oil.
