Healthy Tuna

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the food that I craved when I was pregnant was tuna. I had been eating light tuna in cans almost weekly. I've read about the healthy benefits as well the harmful effects that seafood can give to pregnant women but I did give birth to a healthy baby boy. They say that I need to avoid big fish because of its high mercury content (like tuna, shark, mackerel, swordfish, tilefish) which can harm the baby. But I love tuna and it didn't harm me and the baby. Eating in moderation is important and it is still best to eat seafood during pregnancy. A healthy tuna for a healthy baby!

A scientific study was just released in which the findings show that women who skip seafood during pregnancy could be putting themselves in danger for depression. When I started my pregnancy, a lot of people would remind me not to eat seafood especially the raw one. But I had tuna most of the time
. They mentioned about tunas since I had been buying cans of it. I like making tuna sandwiches and sometimes just eat it with rice. I used to buy Philippine tuna products which are flavored and taste good with rice. All I have to do is heat it and dig in. With the tuna sandwich, I like it with mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Avoiding it may not satisfy me so I did eat it in moderation. This is to satisfy my craving and to get the enough health benefits it can give to both me and the baby.
