Make Better Healthy Food Choices with Safe Catch Tuna

I think most of us know that the gym isn’t the only answer for getting in shape. What you put in your mouth (what you eat) is just as important (if not more important) than your workout. If you are anything like me, the more you hit the gym and the more you work out, the hungrier you get and the more you need to fuel your body with the proper nutrients. I’ve spent a lot of my lifetime making the wrong choices, but this time it’s different – I’m thinking about what I’m eating and how it will affect both my general health and well being, but also how it will affect my next workout. 

My past eating patterns were to grab whatever was fast – probably pre-packaged – and easy, whether it was good for me or not just for the instant gratification of it.  Now I have found better choices for me that don’t contain the sugar, salt and fillers and instead provide me with the beneficial ingredients that I need to keep following my fitness journey. This brings me to today’s post about Safe Catch tuna.

Safe Catch’s mission is to provide consumers with pure and delicious seafood, while also protecting purity in our oceans, lakes and rivers. Safe Catch has introduced their new tuna variety making it easy to eat packaged food that is actually really good for you. Safe Catch not only tests every fish used in its products to ensure that they are low in mercury, the ingredients they use in their new seasoned line of tuna are equally as pure and natural.  

When I looked into this product, I learned that Safe Catch makes the first 100% Mercury tested tuna that offers 100% of the daily value of all 10 essential amino acids, along with B vitamins, selenium and potassium. I also learned that Safe Catch is not packed in water or oil, and no additives are added.  Safe Catch offers three great types of tuna too – Elite Wild Tuna, Wild Albacore and Wild Albacore No Salt Added. I was provided with samples of the above flavors, and they were incredibly flavorful.  I was going to use the tuna to make some recipes, but to be honest, it tasted so good, that I opened the can and ate it right out of the can. I didn’t want to disguise the taste at all – it was that good.

Safe Catch’s Elite Tuna now also comes in 6 new mouth-watering seasonings made with premium and all natural spice blends. Safe Catch Elite tuna set a new bar for purity, taste and nutrients with its proprietary testing, artisan cooking process and minimal processing. Now, Safe Catch is revolutionizing tuna with the highest end spices from around the world, and ready to eat tunas that satisfy the most selective palates.

Traditionally, conventional flavored tuna is machine processed and made with artificial flavoring, artificial colors, fillers, corn syrup, preservatives, GMO vegetable broth, and sunflower oil. Conventional flavored tuna is also pre-cooked before flavor is added, then cooked again in the can. This means the majority of healthy omega-3s and many nutrients are lost. Safe Catch Elite’s seasoned line is unique in its purity, taste and is a healthier alternative to conventional flavored tuna.

To create Safe Catch Seasoned Elite tuna, gourmet spices were sourced that share the Safe Catch values of purity, transparency, and simple ingredients. These seasonings are made all-natural with wholesome ingredients; such as chili pepper, orange peel, cumin, oregano, basil, rosemary, etc. In addition to the natural spices, Safe Catch Seasoned Elite Tuna is made with a small amount of pure avocado oil, which helps enhance the delightful flavor of the spices. Avocado oil has the nutritional profile similar to olive oil and is full of healthy fats, omegas and micronutrients. Safe Catch tuna is hand cut and hand packed, and cooked once in the can to retain all healthy Omega-3s, vitamins, minerals and flavor.

“We believe and remain committed to providing pure, healthy, delicious food.  So when it came to introducing a seasoned (not flavored) Safe Catch Elite line, we will only use natural, Non-GMO ingredients that are both amazingly delicious and pure; ingredients we can recognize and trust” said Sean Wittenberg, Safe Catch co-founder and president.

Each of the new Safe Catch Seasoned Tuna’s will be available online at safecatch.com in 6-pack, 5 ounce cans. Plus, there will be an option to try all the flavors in a variety pack.
