This is a great lunch option for anyone who is following the keto diet. The hero protein source is the Safcol tuna pouch with oil blend, which helps build and repair all the cells in your body. Tuna is a good source of vitamin D which you need to help your body absorb calcium and to keep your immune system in a level of optimal balance. Tuna also helps to keep your heart, brain and arteries working well because of omega 3 oils. Other important micronutrients are iodine and selenium for a healthy thyroid and a healthy working metabolism. Vitamin B12 and choline are essential for a normal working central nervous system and both of these are nutrients you will receive from the tuna. Choline assists with brain health.
The vegetables in this lunch will add fibre for a healthy gut as well as to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Another important nutrient is potassium which is needed to keep your blood pressure in a normal range. Zucchini will give your body some vitamin A and C for immune support and manganese needed to create strong bones. Capsicum will add additional vitamin C which also plays a role in making collagen which is needed for strong ligaments and tendons and youthful skin.
Spinach adds even more vitamin A and C but also vitamin K needed for strong bones and to allow your blood to clot normally. Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids in spinach which act like antioxidants. They support your eyes and may help protect you against age-related macular degeneration. Charging up the immune support is the garlic providing the antioxidant allicin. The tomatoes will help reduce your risk of some cancers and keep your heart healthy too thanks to the antioxidant lycopene.
Cheese adds a good dose of calcium which allows your teeth and bones to stay strong and plays a role in normal muscle contraction. Cheese and eggs add additional protein B12, choline, iodine, vitamin D, vitamin A and selenium too! Eggs are also a source of biotin which plays a role in keeping your skin, hair and nails strong and healthy.
When opting for the olive oil try to select the extra virgin olive oil as it provides a healthy fat called monounsaturated fat which, which, like omega 3 fat, helps to keep your cholesterol levels in a range and also adds over 36 different antioxidants. Antioxidants help fight off the free radicals which can damage and cause disease to the cells of your body. These two fats also play another important role in helping your body absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. This recipe is clearly a winner for those wanting a healthy meal while following a keto style diet.
Safcol does not recommend following the Ketogenic diet. If you have any questions you should consult your dietician.
