I Love Tuna!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of HealthyTuna.com. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you heard of a tuna omelet? What about fruity tuna-pasta salad? I bet you heard it but you just have not tried making it. I used to serve the fruity tuna-pasta salad to hubby and when he first heard it, he thought it was weird and not a good one. He tried tasting a bit and it wasn't bad. Below is a modified recipe from the other fruity tuna-pasta salad recipe.

1/4 of 1 package (7oz.) small shell pasta, cooked and drained
1 can (6oz.) tuna drained and flaked
1 large carrot, shredded
1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp prepared mustard
1 tsp dill weed
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Directions:

In a large salad bowl combine pasta, tuna, carrot and onion.
Combine remaining ingredients; whisk until smooth.
Pour over pasta mixture; Toss to coat.
Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours
I like best is the tuna omelet.When frying the scrambled egg, I just add the tuna chunks and roll it with the egg while frying it. Salt and pepper can be added to taste. It is easy and healthy especially to pregnant women like I was before. I see to it that I had seafood on my diet to get the good benefits that seafood can offer. They say it will harm the baby but I only eat in moderation. Seafood is still best and according to a scientific study, women who skip seafood during pregnancy could be putting themselves in danger for depression. This was just released and the findings show that seafood can really help prevent depression especially to women who just had a child. Postpartum depression can be minimized then and so women can raise their child without any problem. If you can't eat other seafood due to cost, you may use tuna which we can buy in cans. Cook it or prepare it in any way that will satisfy your taste. It is a
healthy tuna for your healthy self and baby! Oh I love tuna!
