At last – tuna products I have no qualms about recommending. Many of my clients have food sensitivities and follow rotation diets, so pure and simple ingredient lists like Wild Planet’s are key to compliance. What’s more, the tuna tastes fantastic. Plus, I rest assured knowing Wild Planet has done everything it can to minimize mercury and maximize the amount of omega-3s per bite. The Single Serve Albacore Tuna Pouches are especially easy to tote in a lunch bag for an easy protein boost.

Wild Planet’s seafood products offer great flavor and nutrition! As a dietitian who specializes in brain health, fish is a superfood that I recommend eating several times per week for optimum health. Many research studies demonstrate the dietary benefits of consuming fish high in omega-3 fatty acids for lowering risk of Alzheimer’s, dementia, depression, ADHD, and cardiovascular disease. For pregnant and nursing women, the DHA in low-mercury containing seafood, aids in healthy brain and eye development. Wild Planet is a reputable brand that I endorse because they produce high quality, tasty products that meet sustainable seafood criteria.

As a dietitian and food writer, I often find myself recommending people eat more fish and developing recipes starring various swimmers. That’s because fish can offer a boatload of nutritional perks including protein, heart-healthy omega-3 fats and various vital minerals. But when it comes to the canned fish aisle, the choices are not always stellar. Many options use fish that are sourced using unsustainable methods and are processed in ways that degrade nutrients. That’s why I always turn to Wild Planet for my fix of salmon, tuna, sardines and other stars of the sea. I can count on Wild Planet for using only responsible fishing methods to source their seafood and packaging methods that retain maximum nutrition. Just look at the differences in mega-healthy omega-3 levels in tuna from Wild Planet and that from the huge canners. That alone is worth the splurge. But for me, it largely comes down to the fact that their products just simply taste significantly better than the competition. So, yes, I’m happy to go wild for Wild Planet.

As a registered dietitian nutritionist specializing in weight loss, I know that protein is the key to satisfying hunger. Wild Planet tuna is a perfect protein source packed with heart healthy omega 3 fats. The lower mercury content makes it safe for all of my clients including kids, pregnant women and the elderly. The big bonus? No draining necessary! There’s never been an easier way to enjoy tuna. Try my easy diet tip: Add plain Greek yogurt to your Wild Planet tuna instead of mayo. No need to weigh down this tasty tuna with fatty dressing; it’s delicious as-is.

I love Wild Planet albacore tuna with a mix of hummus and mayo as an open face sandwich with melted mozzarella and sliced tomato. The best part is in just 2 oz you’re getting around 800mg of Omega 3’s, important for heart health and their anti-inflammatory properties.
