But with just a little planning, they can make a healthy meal recipe that are perfect for lunch, picnics  and packs, well  for school or office.

Eating tuna and other fish can help your brain function better, keep your memory sharp and reduce your risk of heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice a week. Both fresh and canned tuna are convenient ways to get your weekly amounts of this nutrient-rich food. Choosing low-sodium and low-fat seasonings and whole-grain bread is the healthiest way to make a tuna sandwich.
