LOOK: JP Anglo Shares 4 Healthy Recipes Using Tuna

Christmas is just around the corner, which means we’ll get to eat holiday staples that are delicious yet not always healthy. During this season, I make sure to balance sinful treats like lechon with nutritious food so I can still stay healthy and not pack on (too much of the) holiday pounds.

Mega Tuna is making sure that we still stay on track with our health and wellness goals by inviting me and other friends to an online cooking hangout. During our get-together, chef JP Anglo taught us how to cook delicious, easy-to-prepare, yet healthy holiday spreads.
