Wild Planet Foods Help You Get More Omega 3

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Omega-3 fatty acids are said to protect against the spread of cancers related to hormone production-particularly breast cancer.

Wild Planet Foods, the leading provider of sustainable seafood, is not only a great option because it’s sustainable and good for ocean life, but also because it’s healthier than tuna canned by the Big Three (and even Omega 3 pills for that matter).

While conventional tuna often boast that they’re “an excellent source of Omega 3” they cook their tuna twice in the can, depleting the fish of its natural juices and nutrients. Wild Planet on the other hand cooks their tuna only once.

* Wild Planet’s Wild Albacore Tuna: 1,384mg Omega 3 per serving
* Chicken of the Sea Albacore Tuna: 150mg Omega 3 per serving
* Starkist Solid Albacore Tuna: 360mg Omega 3 per serving
* Bumble Bee Solid White Albacore Tuna: 100mg Omega 3 per serving

The company sent me some of their tuna, salmon and wild sardines to try out for all of you. I love tuna and use tuna at least once a week when I am preparing lunch or dinner for my family. I also enjoy salmon when I make salmon cakes but hubby gets to have the sardines!

I used one can of tuna to make a tuna fish sandwich one day for lunch and was really impressed with the quality and taste. It wasn't overly fishy, no chunky bone slivers and it just had a nice texture & taste. On another day, hubby and I made some cucumber tuna boats (you can find the recipe here on my blog) and really loved the tuna in those.

One evening for dinner we whipped up some homemade salmon cakes using the salmon they sent to us and I have to admit, it was the BEST canned salmon we have ever used. I am ditching my previous brand for the Wild Planet brand for sure! Finally, hubby enjoys sardines from time to time on his pizza and one evening he had them as a topping on his favorite frozen pizza. (I hate my pizza plain, sorry, I am not a sardines fan). He really enjoyed them.

All of the Wild Planet Foods products that we got to review were delicious! We were very impressed with their quality, flavor, texture and ease-of-use. We will definitely be buying this products in the future.
