Why Your Body Needs Protein

Did you know that your body uses protein to build and repair tissue? Or that protein is an important building block for bones, muscle, cartilage, skin, and blood? How about that your body needs protein to produce hormones, enzymes, and other chemicals that keep you healthy?

With protein being such a key nutrient in your health, it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough. Packing 5 grams of protein per ounce, tuna is a great source of protein that’s low in calories and fat. In fact, just one can of tuna gives you almost half of your recommended daily protein intake. So, what are you waiting for? Stock your freezer and pantry with Ocean’s Tuna and check out these five recipes!
