Something Fishy Must Be Endured
This is not my first post about tuna. It probably won't be the last. I love tuna. I love tuna steaks. I love canned tuna. I've even enjoyed the occasional pouch. What prompts this post is Wild Planet.
All Wild Planet tuna is 100% sustainably pole & line, troll, or handline caught - nets are never used. Our methods catch only smaller migratory fish, that are naturally lower in mercury. Each fish is carefully hand-cut then hand-packed and cooked just once in the can ensuring a firm texture, clean taste, and high nutrient content.
Pole and line or net caught, I'm going to eat the tuna. Make it easy for me to befriend the environment and I'll go that way. They do, and I do. But wait! There's more.
How many times have I said that due to congestive heart failure, I have a 1,500 milligram sodium limit? A limit I freely admit to exceeding all too often. Where does tuna fit into this?
