In the kitchen with Kelley: Healthy Mexican-Style Bowl

This is a very simple recipe that I make with tuna and often eat for lunch. It can be eaten warm or cold, depending on your preference. In addition, you can make it exactly the way I do — or not. Feel free to improvise according to your tastes. For example, my kids don’t really like tuna, so I would make it with chicken for them. Because I pull this together in my office break room, I don’t use any spices for the sake of simplicity.

But if you do make it with tuna, you’re doing yourself a favor. The anti-inflammatory health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are clear, and tuna is an important food source of omega-3s.
