Tuna is a rich source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and essential vitamins and minerals, promoting heart health, brain function, and muscle repair. Lentils are packed with fiber, protein, and complex carbohydrates, supporting digestive health, blood sugar control, and sustained energy levels. Together, these nutrient-dense foods provide a delicious and satisfying meal that nourishes the body and supports overall well-being.
