Football Sundays: Tuna Burger

Between the holidays and football season, you might see the men in your life pack on a few pounds. You might even put on some sympathy weight yourself. But you don’t have to. If you’re going to be sitting on the couch all day – watching others being athletic – the least you can do is make the right food choices. And, of course, get a brisk walk or workout in before and after the game.

Make my healthy tuna burger, a perfect and protein-packed alternative to that bag of chips.


 

Ingredients

10 oz ahi tuna, divided into 2 portions

1 tbsp olive oil

2 whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted

2 tbsp pesto

1 tomato, sliced

¼ red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cups lettuce

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Coat the tuna with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Grill on high heat for 2 minutes on each side, until the outside is lightly charred but the interior is still pink.

Coat the buns with the pesto, then add lettuce, tomato and onion. Serve and enjoy.

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
