Many people find using canned tuna on salads or sandwiches is a great lunch choice. The question is which is better; light tuna or albacore. According to the Nutrition Action Health letter (June 2011), light tuna has a lot less mercury than white (albacore) tuna.

The mercury topic can be a concern to pregnant women and young children. Try to limit the albacore to no more than 1 ½ oz. a week for every 50 pounds they weigh. They should limit canned light tuna to no more than 12 oz. a week.

 So if you love the ease of canned tuna, chose light canned tuna for the cleaner choice.

I love veggies. I realize that not everyone feels so excited about eating vegetables. But, if it helps to sway your opinion, it’s helpful to know that fruit and veggies are fiber all-stars that help fight heart disease, stroke, cancer, obesity and diabetes.

They are full of nutrition and keep you feeling full, which helps you control your daily calorie intake. My husband is always telling people how much food (in sheer quantity) I eat, though I appear small in size. That’s because I eat spinach and seasonal vegetables at 2-3 meals. You can work them into eggs, take pea pods as a mid morning snack and on and on.

If you are new to adding vegetables to your diet, try eating them cooked or par-cooked (blanched) versus raw at the stat. This will help control the gaseous side effects of veggies. Also, add them slowly to help your digestive system build up tolerance to them. Many people find relief with products like Beano as well.
