My family loves tuna. Growing up I ate tuna, mayo, and pickle sandwiches. Now that I don’t buy mayo, my family makes a variety of tuna meals. My daughter and husband love to make a tuna dip that they eat with pita chips. The dip includes a can of tuna with pickles, tomatoes, and hummus. I prefer to drizzle a little olive oil and lemon on my tuna and a pinch of pepper, and eat it with crackers.
There was a time when I wasn’t buying tuna because I became aware of the high mercury levels and fishing practices used to get the tuna. I was pleased when I found that companies were creating a more sustainable way to fish for tuna. While the mercury levels are still in question, I know that tuna every now and then is not harmful for me or my family.
Once company that is committed to sustainable practices when fishing for tuna is Wild Selections. The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is the world’s leading certification program for wild-caught, sustainable seafood and you will find their blue label on ALL of Wild Selections products. Wild Selections is the only full line of MSC certified sustainable seafood. They follow three core principles including the maintenance of a sustainable level of fish stocks, minimizing environmental impact, and effective fishery management.

I try to meal plan at the beginning of every week in order to make my evenings easier! Of course there is always a night where I need to make something quick. This usually means pasta. While I love pasta, along with my family, I hate that it basically becomes a carb-loaded meal with little to no benefit to our bodies.
At Expo West, I met a company called Banza, that creates pasta out of chickpeas. When I was asked if I wanted to try a sample, I was on board, but I was trying to figure out what it would taste like. I opted to try their mac n’ cheese. It was super tasty. I have tried a variety of grain-free pastas made with veggies, quinoa, and other non-grain ingredients, but Banza has been the tastiest so far.
