Tuna Steak with Tomato, Cucumber and Avocado Salad

I know some people are put off by Tuna, but that’s usually because they have only ever tasted it from a can. Canned is ok to eat, but when it comes to what will we get out of it, fresh wins every time! There is over 1000mg more of Omega 3 fatty acid in fresh tuna! And it’s the Omega 3 that we so desperately need more of in our day to day diets and is known to be a seriously strong anti-inflammatory which is essential when it comes to your heart health.
