Potassium plays an important role in keeping your blood pressure within a healthy range. Assisting your heart further is the omega 3 fat in the Safcol yellowfin tuna chunks. This helps your cholesterol levels stay in a heart-healthy range of more ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and less ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It also helps keep your brain working well because 60% of your brain is made up of fat. As an anti-inflammatory fat, it also may assist in reducing the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Black beans are a great source of fibre which help keep you feeling full but also feed the good bacteria in your gut. This is essential for a healthy immune system, metabolism, and organ health just to name a few reasons to keep your gut healthy. Black beans are also a good source of the plant form of iron. This is needed to help transport the oxygen around your body. There is also iron in the tuna and iron from animal sources assists and increases the absorption of plant source iron. Black beans also provide folate which is needed to help create and repair DNA. Potassium and vitamin B6 which plays a role in keeping your immune system working normally, are also present within the tuna.

The lime will add some delicious tang and the red capsicum delicious crunch and sweetness but also vitamin C which also helps your immune system work well. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb the plant source iron.  This delicious Spanish dish will become a favourite in your home.
