Spicy Tuna Bowls

<article> <section> <p>Cheap, easy, filling, <i>and</i> flavorful, these bowls make a great alternative to a sad desk salad for a working lunch. There’s no starchy white rice, beans, or soy to cause digestive distress or derail your diet. Instead, it’s all about healthy fats, flavor-packed ingredients, and delicious protein. The quick pickle process for the veggies enhances their crunch and adds texture to the dish while also adding a jolt of sweet-tangy flavor.</p> <div class="sub-head">Delicious Daikon</div> <p>Resembling a giant white carrot, daikon is a winter vegetable that hails from East and Southeast Asia. Popular in Japanese cuisine, it has a mild radish flavor and a juicy, crisp texture. Very low in carbs, this versatile veggie has many uses—both its root and leaves are edible. Daikon has a host of health benefits, too. It’s loaded with enzymes like amylase and esterase. Both help your body break down and utilize other nutrients. It’s also a potent anti-inflammatory, helping to ease muscle pain and joint aches. Daikon is extremely high in Vitamin C, giving your immune system a boost by stimulating the production of white blood cells. Further, it helps speed tissue repair and healing. </p> <div class="sub-head">Chicken of the Sea</div> <p>Canned tuna is an underrated pantry hero. Tuna is an inexpensive way to get more fish into your diet. Bursting with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, it can enhance cognitive performance and lower inflammation. Although oil-packed tuna is higher in calories than the water-packed version, it’s also loaded with flavor. Those extra good fats can protect your heart health, especially if you choose line-caught tuna packed in olive oil.</p> <div class="sub-head">Spicy Tuna Bowls</div> <p><b>Prep Time: 15 mins | Cooking Time: 5 minutes| Serves: 4</b></p> <div class="sub-head">Ingredients:</div> <p><ul> <li>1 medium daikon radish </li> <li>1 medium cucumber </li> <li>¼ cup apple cider vinegar</li> <li>½ teaspoon monk fruit sweetener</li> <li>1 teaspoon salt</li> <li>1 red bell pepper </li> <li>2 (5-ounce) cans chunk light tuna in oil</li> <li>2 avocados</li> <li>4 cups cauliflower rice, steamed</li> <li>1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped</li> <li>Juice and zest of 1 large lime (about 2 tablespoons of juice and 1 teaspoon zest)</li> <li>4 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce </li> <li>1 bunch green onions, sliced thin</li> <li>1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds</li> </ul> <div class="sub-head">Instructions:</div> <p><ol> <li>Peel the daikon radish.
