The Greatest Muscle-Building Tuna Burger

Feed your muscles the nutrition they crave with this protein-packed recipe.

With plenty of protein and little fat, tuna is one of the best foods for muscle growth and recovery. By combining the canned fish with a few simple ingredients you can make a delicious burger in a matter of minutes—one that packs more health benefits than a beef or turkey version. Another bonus to the tuna burger: Tuna is a great source of omega-3 fatty acid, which supports muscle growth, helps cut your risk for heart disease, and boasts anti-inflammatory properties.
