Nutritional values

Tuna is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are incorporated into the cell walls of brain and nerve cells and can thus improve our thinking performance. Pomegranate seeds contain abundant secondary plant compounds that act as antioxidants and protect our cells from harmful free radicals.

Don't like cilantro? No problem! The salad is also a pleasure with parsley. You may also get creative when choosing the type of salad: Just use your favorite variety.
