MAKE IT TUNA
Trade up to Tuna,
The Lean Protein
By any measure, tuna is one of the healthiest proteins out there. So why not swap it in to put a healthy twist on some calorie-heavy classics? For example, instead of a fatty ground beef, try grilling a lean tuna patty for your next burger.
Choosing tuna is an easy way to make your meals wholesome and nutritious. Our Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water contains 13 grams of protein and 0 grams of fat per serving, along with essential Omega-3 fatty acids.*
*Omega-3 fatty acids are found in many types of fish. For specific amounts of Omega-3 EPA and DHA in Bumble Bee® products, please refer to the product labels.
TUNA TIP #1
TRY TUNA IN OLIVE OIL
Did you know that most Europeans prefer tuna in olive oil? It's naturally moist, so you don't need to add mayo. And Bumble Bee® has a mouth-watering lineup called Gourmet Flavors, infused with Sundried Tomato, Chipotle and Jalapeño.
TUNA TIP #2
AVOCADO OVER MAYO
Nothing's worse than a dry sandwich. That's where avocado comes in. It's delicious and unlike regular mayo or butter, most of its calories come from unsaturated fat—the good kind.

Getting them off the
Couch and out the Door
Did you know that not only do schools serve fast food lunches, they may also technically count pizza as a “vegetable” because it has tomato sauce? With ads for junk food and misinformation about nutrition everywhere, it's up to us parents to set the facts straight with our kids.
Stock up on healthy food (including your favorite protein-packed Bumble Bee® products) & your road to health & wellness will be that much easier!
If kids don't find exercise enjoyable, they're less likely to stick with it. If they're not a big fan of team sports, for example, help them explore some other options like swimming or yoga. It can take some trial and error, but eventually your child will find their groove and it will serve them for the rest of their lives.
KIDS TIP #1
LET THEM BE THE CHEF
Nothing beats learning by doing. When your kids are choosing a healthy recipe and actually helping to prepare it, they become invested in the process.
KIDS TIP #2
LET THEM SHOP
Letting kids shop with you is a great opportunity to teach them which foods are healthy. You can even show them how to read a nutrition label or hunt for deals.
ENJOY GUILT-FREE TV
Who doesn't love a good TV show? Sometimes, before you know it, you've finished a whole season in one sitting. But as long as you're pretty active, it's not the end of the world.

SNACK LIKE A CHAMP
Stock your kitchen with nutritious foods to use as snacks. Tuna Mini Melts on crackers is one of our favorites.

THE LESS LEGS THE BETTER
Go for healthier protein sources like fish, chicken, beans and nuts, not burgers and hot dogs. Smaaart choices can help lower the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
STOCK YOUR CAR
Take bottled water and healthy snacks with you on the road. They'll help you avoid cravings for gas-station junk food and drive-through meals.
SPINACH and KALE RULE SUPREME
These two leafy greens are arguably the most nutrient-dense foods around. Find a recipe you like for either and make a habit of it!
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Lots of people don't drink enough water. The Institute of Medicine recommends about 13 cups of liquids per day for men, and 9 for women.
SODA IS CANDY
Drinking water with your meals instead of sugary beverages like soda or juice can help you lose weight. Studies show that the rush of sugar from soda can be quickly converted into fat by your body.
CUT BACK ON BUTTER
Avocado contains healthier, unsaturated fats. Use it on bread instead of butter. And for cooking, use unsaturated oils like olive oil, or vegetable oil.
CHOOSE WHOLE GRAIN
Choose wheat bread over white bread, and brown rice over white rice. They contain fiber and digest more slowly, so you have energy to last you through the day.
PLANTS ARE YOUR FRIEND
Make half of your plate fruits and veggies, and you'll be in good shape. Potatoes and French fries don't count!
SOME CEREAL IS LIKE SUGAR
Some cereals that claim to be healthy, might as well be table sugar as far as your body is concerned. That's how quickly sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream. Make sure that your cereal contains whole grains as the main ingredient, not corn meal, for example.
