It’s no secret that I am a huge seafood lover — One of the hardest parts of this pregnancy has been avoiding my beloved sushi. I adore sharing recipes that get more nutrients into your body, and today I’m doing that with this Tuna Sesame Power Bowl, thanks to Wild Selections. For this recipe, I used their Solid White Albacore Tuna in water, but they also have their Solid White Albacore Tuna in olive oil that’s just as delicious. Both of these products are made using simple ingredients, are GMO project certified, and are traceable to the ocean where it was caught, so you can trust in every bite. We’re actually heading to Martha’s Vineyard this weekend and I am beyond ready to eat all of the wonderful fresh seafood.
When it comes to seafood, I’ve always been adamant that I use only fish that’s sustainable and wild-caught. While this used to be something that was harder to find, now you can purchase quality tuna, like Wild Selections right in your regular grocery store. If you didn’t know, Wild Selections has wonderful partnerships with both the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). What do they do with these organizations? For starters, Wild Selections sources its wild-caught seafood only from ocean areas that have been certified sustainable to the Marine Stewardship Council Standard. MSC has been the world’s leading certification program for wild-caught, sustainable seafood for the past 20 years. This assessment and certification of oceans areas by MSC ensure that fish stocks are healthy, well managed and plentiful. In addition to that, Wild Selections also donates 13 cents from the sale of each can to support World Wildlife Fund’s efforts to protect marine life and expand sustainable fishing practices, up to $1 million by the end of this year. This is such important work that they’re doing to keep our oceans and its wildlife in the best shape it can be.
