These tuna zucchini patties are a must-try. The star of the meal is the Tuna Pouch with Oil Blend. This fish adds a health kick of omega 3 fat needed for optimal brain, heart, and artery function. As an anti-inflammatory fat, it may also help reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Adding to this benefit is tuna which is a source of haem or animal iron. Iron is important for your body to transport oxygen. Keeping your central nervous system functioning well is vital and vitamins B12 and choline in the tuna will help do this. Choline also helps to look after the health of your brain and B12 helps your body make red blood cells and make DNA.
Cheese adds additional B12, choline, protein as well as iodine and selenium for a healthy thyroid which will help your metabolism function. Cheese is a great source of calcium which helps your muscles to contract normally as well as keep your bones and teeth strong. Adding to these benefits is cheese which is a source of vitamin A which supports your immune system function and helps to keep your eyes working well.
