Here’s a classic tuna melt recipe that the whole family can enjoy. This healthy sandwich is an easy tuna fish recipe you can make in minutes.
Tuna is a relatively inexpensive protein source that’s lean and rich in omega 3 fats and a good source of vitamin D, B vitamins, and selenium. Concerns about mercury can be addressed by visiting the FDA’s website at FDA.gov. Put simply, it’s safe to consume 2-3 servings of tuna a week. This tuna melt is served on a whole wheat English muffin for added fiber and nutrients. Concerned about sodium? Look for a whole wheat bread with less than 140 mg of sodium on the label and the same with your cheese.Theresa Jackson, RD, CSOWM, CDN
