Tuna : Terrific for Low Carb Meals !

Tuna is a good source of protein and may be enjoyed for lunch or dinner; I do find that canned tuna can make a great low carb meal. If you use canned tuna try to choose high-quality, MSC – labelled tuna fish – which stands for the Marine Stewardship Council Fisheries Standard, so you know it’s certified sustainable.
