Dr. Tim Says....
I don't write about exercise a lot because it's not my specialty. While I know a lot about it, exercise regularly myself and always talk with my patients about it, the Dr. Gourmet website is about food and nutrition. We've begun to incorporate exercise into our mission because of its importance and you'll see more info in the future on this topic.
I have, however, as part of our mission written occasionally about nutritional supplements - vitamins and such. Those of you who are regular readers know that I don't believe the research supports taking vitamins. In the past I have used the premise of "doesn't help but probably won't hurt" when it comes to vitamins. There has been some recent evidence that I've written on that indicates taking vitamins might actually be bad for you. We're a long way from knowing for sure, but this past week another study has been published that casts more doubt on the idea of "probably won't hurt." One of the medical students I work with who is very interested in exercise sent this one my way. Exercise and Supplements
So I generally do most of the cooking. My wife is a good cook but doesn't really like to all that much. Mind you, she has a fantastic palate and knows when a recipe is good or not as well as what might be wrong with it. Every once in a while she will come up with a recipe. This is one of those and it's really fantastic. The tuna works great with the mango salsa and the combination is not just great tasting but great for you.
This recipe is safe for Coumadin (warfarin) users and is low in sodium. It is both lactose-free and gluten-free. Those with GERD / Acid Reflux should avoid it as it is likely too spicy.
