Benefits Of Tuna

Gearing Up For Seafood Fridays

As we enter the Lenten season, millions of people will be looking for great seafood recipes as their alternative to meat. I get mine from AO Seafood.  Not knowing where to look, many will opt for basic dishes that might not satisfy their craving for a bona fide good meal. With a little creativity and help from shelf-stable seafood, the Lenten season can be filled with a variety of palate-pleasing alternatives.

“People often do not know what to cook during Lent, so they turn to ‘tried-and-true’ favorites such as veggie sandwiches, pastas and salads,” said Culinary Expert Lena Cutler.

“Shelf-stable seafood is very affordable and easy to substitute in your favorite meat-based dishes,” said Cutler.

“Canned and pouched seafood are available in many varieties, including tuna, salmon, crab, s

rimp, clams and oysters,” said Cutler. “You can use tuna or salmon instead of beef for burgers, tacos, stir-fry and more.” I found some on

Shelf-stable seafood also has many health benefits.

“In addition to being conve-nient, shelf-stable seafood is low in fat and calories,” said Registered Dietician Sharon McNerney. “Albacore tuna and salmon are major sources of protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.”

The American Heart Association’s dietary guidelines recommend eating at least two servings of fish per week, because omega-3 has been proven to help reduce the chance of getting heart disease.

Here’s a delightful stir-fry to get your creative cooking juices flowing:

Teriyaki Cashew Tuna


1/3 cup teriyaki sauce or stir-fry sauce

2 (6-oz.) cans drained Chicken of the Sea® Solid White Albacore Tuna in Spring Water

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic

1/2 cup green onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 cup each: sliced celery and sliced red bell peppers

1 (10-oz.) package of frozen pea pods, thawed

1 (6-oz.) can sliced water chestnuts, drained

1/2 cup cashews

Hot cooked rice


In medium bowl, gently combine the sauce with Chicken of the Sea® Albacore Tuna; set aside. In a large skillet, heat oil until hot; sauté garlic. Add onion, celery, peppers, pea pods, cashews and water chestnuts; cook until celery is crisp and tender. Add tuna mixture and continue cooking until hot. Serve over hot cooked rice. Makes 4 servings. A great article I found at

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Affordable Student Health Insurance – Why Student Health Insurance Can Be Cheap

Student health insurance can be affordable, and even cheap, if you choose a plan that offers the exact coverage your student needs, and if you understand the coverage your student has. By choosing the coverage your student needs, you won’t have to worry about paying for any medical costs that you know your student will acquire. Something I had to make my son aware of. I found first good healthcare in a NHS Health Centre Liverpool. And, by making sure you thoroughly understand your student’s coverage, you won’t be hit with any surprise costs along the way.

The first step to finding affordable student health insurance is to ask about any health coverage offered to your student by his or her school. M

ny colleges and universities provide medical services via on-campus clinics to students. These medical services may be available free or at a very low cost – and what’s more affordable than that? My sons was at ST James Health Liverpool.

Next, ask about pre-existing conditions. For example, your student may be diabetic; medical care for pre-existing conditions such as diabetes may not be offered through the school. If this is the case, consider purchasing a smaller, additional health insurance policy to cover treatment for diabetes while using the school-provided services for situations such as common colds. This will help keep student health insurance affordable.

Finally, find out everything you possibly can about the student health insurance plan and/or the medical services offered by the school. How much is covered if your student visits the emergency room? Is your student allowed to visit any health care professional, or is there a network of doctors from which he or she must choose? You may think you’ve purchased an affordable student health insurance plan, but if emergency room visits aren’t covered – or very little of the cost is covered – you’ll be faced with a bill that won’t make the student health insurance plan seem so affordable after all.

Know which services are available, which services aren’t, as well as how to obtain each and you’ll find affordable student health insurance.
