Tuna, a protein powerhouse, is low in fat (when canned in water, rather than oil) and provides heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3s may also boost metabolism—yet another reason to grab a can of tuna post workout. Skip the mayo and try using a dollop of Greek yogurt or a combo of lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper to keep it nice and lean. Pair your tuna with a piece of toasted, high-fiber whole wheat bread or crackers for an energy-boosting crunch.
