No “Tuna” No Problem

I always love cooking with Ange on News 25 Lifestyles! Today I cooked from home and it was great! I love hearts of palm, you can find them in just about any grocery store and they are high in antioxidants and potassium. Hearts of Palm are also low in calories and high in fiber. I like to use Hearts of Palm in place of ‘fish’ in my plant-based vegan dishes. I have used it to me ceviche and today I am using it to make a No “Tuna” Salad.

Here is the link to my cooking segment from Lifestyles

    I used to eat tuna fish right out of the can/pouch. This No “Tuna” Salad literally makes my mouth water. I will be trying it with great anticipation.
