Insanity Lunch Recipes: Tuna Salad in a Tomato

Tuna Salad in a Tomato is another one of my favorite Insanity lunch recipes. This also makes a perfect light summer dinner. But, don’t eat too much!

Why? Because of the mercury content in tuna, that’s why.

Sadly, mercury is polluting our waters. It comes from air pollution caused by power plants and other fossil fuel burning industry and is primarily injected into our rivers, lakes and oceans by rain.

Unlike zinc and iron, mercury serves no positive function in the body. All it does is damage it…specifically, the brain and kidneys. Once in your body, mercury has a half-life of three days in your blood and 90 days in other tissues, which is why you have to limit how much tuna you eat. Here’s a post we did that will help educate you a bit more about this: How to Pick the Best Canned Tuna

Use the Seafood Calculator by the Environmental Working Group to calculate how much tuna (and other seafood) you should max yourself at per week. This tool is also helpful because it also ranks seafood in terms of toxicity, giving you ideas to substitute.

Now that I’ve freaked you about tuna, go forth and enjoy this tuna salad recipe. Seriously…it’s okay. Just don’t gorge on it every day!
