Eggs and tuna will provide your body with iodine needed for healthy thyroid function and metabolism.

This meal will melt in your mouth and keep you healthy at the same time. Safcol tuna provides your body with a range of nutritional benefits including a good source of protein to keep you feeling fuller for longer but also helps build and repair all the cells in your body. Tuna is a source of vitamin D which keeps your immune system working well and plays a role in helping your body absorb calcium. A final highlight of this fish is as a source of omega 3 fat. This is an essential fat your body needs for health and keeps your heart, brain, arteries, and eyes working well.

Tasty cheese is a must for any melt but has nutritional benefits too. Calcium for strong bones and teeth. Also,  vitamin B12 and choline for an optimal central nervous system function. Cheese and tuna are both sources of iodine and selenium which keeps your thyroid working well. Your thyroid plays many roles including regulating your metabolism.

Olive oil is a great choice as a source of monounsaturated fat. Like omega 3 fat, they both play roles in keeping your cholesterol levels in a healthy range.

All the added vegetables and herbs provide their own unique antioxidants. Antioxidants help to fight off free radicals which can cause damage and disease to the cells of your body. This is one reason why a variety of vegetables is important as each gives their own unique health benefits. Examples include tomatoes which provide the antioxidant lycopene. Lycopene helps to keep your heart healthy and may reduce your risk of certain cancers. Onions and garlic help your immune system work well and zucchinis are a good source of vitamin A which also supports your immune system as well as supporting eye health. This is clearly a melt to fall deeply in love with.
