Oh for the love of TUNA! I have a big place in my heart for this stuff. Tuna melts have always been on my top favorite foods ever list and I always have cans of tuna stacked in my pantry for a quick high protein snack or meal.
When I was at the IDEA World Fitness Expo last month I was meandering down the expo aisles with Lindsey from nourish move love, and we stumbled upon a new tuna company called Safe Catch. I was intrigued by the delicious samples but even more by the clean ingredient list! When I did the Whole30 in January I was blown away by the fact that there were so many additives in a simple can of tuna. So when I saw that this tuna was sustainably caught, non-gmo, mercury tested, and only contained tuna and salt – I was convinced! Oh and when I say mercury tested, I should mention that Safe Catch Elite products have the LOWEST Mercury level of any brand.
I am so excited to now be working with Safe Catch to bring you some tunalicious (yes that’s a word) recipes in the next few months! Today: I have burgers on the brain. Mixing this tuna up with some spices, an egg and some almond flour is all you have to do to create a protein packed patty you will love!! I served these with my Clean Thousand Island Sauce, caramelized onions, avocado and tomato, all wrapped up in lettuce! If you aren’t convinced, maybe a little discount would help you?
