Tuna chilli vegetable pasta

This pasta can be summarised as immune and metabolic optimising

Ashleigh Feltham (MNutrDiet)

Safcol tuna is a good source of the essential omega-3 fat which is needed by your brain and heart for health. As an anti-inflammatory fat, it may also help reduce symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Tuna is also a great source of many vitamins and minerals including iron which is needed to transport oxygen around your body. Also, zinc and iron play an important role in keeping your immune system working optimally.

Extra virgin olive oil adds 36 different antioxidants as well as another heart-healthy fat. Both omega-3 fat and monounsaturated fat help to lower your ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and increase your ‘good’ HDL cholesterol.

Garlic has anti-inflammatory properties as well as the compound allicin which supports your immune system working optimally. Garlic and zucchini add gut-loving fibre as well as potassium which helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels. Zucchini is also a good source of vitamin A which is needed for the health of your eyes and helps to keep your immune system working at its best. Also, manganese is needed to metabolise carbohydrates, fat, and protein. Chilli adds more antioxidants as well as for a short period of time after enjoying this meal a metabolic boost.
