Hey, guys! I just realized that this week, I wrote about food twice or thrice, and I have been looking at food review sites and different recipes. Grabe! This diet is making me think about food more! It’s a good thing that I recently went to an event by Gold Seas Tuna Chunks where we were taught how to cook healthy meals (so kahit kain ako ng kain, at least, I’m eating healthy dishes).
The dilemma for moms like me, who hardly cook, is what do I serve my little one. Early on, she needs to learn how to eat good food. We also have her best friend over, since her friend lives in the same area. For these 2 four year olds, what can we serve that is nutritious yet fun to eat!
I would highly recommend dishes from Gold Seas Tuna Chunks. I, myself, would eat tuna as is. Haha! Yes, I do that because I love tuna, and we used to have just tuna and kamote when my sister and I would go to the gym (decades ago, btw!).
Why tuna? Tuna is a nutritious, light and versatile food that is rich in protein and vitamins. Simple and uncomplicated.
Here are some simple dishes made out of Gold Seas Tuna Chunks created by Chef Rosebud.
Gold Seas Tuna Chunks is the newest, premium canned tuna in the market. What I like about this brand is that each can has meatier tuna loin or chunks. And look at the picture below! I already drained water from the can, and it still has a lot (A LOT!) of tuna inside!
Here are the recipes for Gold Seas Tuna Shepherd’s Pie and Tuna Quesadilla!
