A classic with something extra. The quality fish source of Safcol Tuna in Springwater gives your body a healthy kick of omega 3 fat to support your heart and brain. Omega 3 fat is also an anti-inflammatory fat which improves your artery function and may provide relief for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Tuna is a good source of animal form haem iron. Iron is important as it helps oxygen to be transported properly throughout your body. This mineral is also needed to make neurotransmitters in your brain.

The egg adds to the protein the tuna gives but also provides other nutrients including vitamins A and D for a strong immune system. Vitamin D also helps calcium to be absorbed properly in your body and vitamin A helps your eyes to work well. Both the egg and the tuna will give your body iodine and selenium needed for healthy thyroid function. The thyroid plays many important roles, one of which includes keeping your metabolism working normally. Selenium also helps your body make DNA and helps protect your cells from oxidative damage.

The whole grain bread will add to your daily needs of fibre for a healthy gut but also helps to keep the munchies away for a longer period. Whole grains give your body many vitamins and minerals including B vitamins, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, and iron. Adding the lemon juice adds flavour but also some vitamin C to support your immune system and is an important part of creating collagen, needed for strong ligaments, tendons and youthful skin. Tuna on toast is no longer a boring choice but could easily become a delicious staple to your weekly breakfast choices.
