Another protein-packed creature of the ocean, tuna is easily accessible to the general public, whether bought in cans, pouches, jars, or chilling on ice at the fish counter. What’s great about the chicken of the sea is that there is a multitude of ways to prepare it. Not only that but a 3.5-ounce serving has 30 grams of lean protein in it, along with a dose of potassium, B12, and selenium. Stick to tuna packaged in water versus oil and opt for light tuna, which is lower in mercury than the darker varieties. For tuna steaks, avoid any with brown spots or a rainbow sheen.
