Yes you have guessed it, this is a classic Tuna Niçoise salad originating from Nice in France. I have complimented the dish with Electric Lemon CBD oil, and added a few healthy tweaks too.

Tuna fish is classed as a superfood as it aids your bodies heart, bones, skin, energy levels, blood pressure and immune system. Tuna are packed full of micronutrients and healthy fats, so along with the other components within the salad you’re in for a real health-boosting meal. Adding the CBD oil amplifies the best of natures harvest, and the more we focus on our diet, the more we can aid our overall wellbeing.

Our bodies have two brains. The second brain is commonly referred to as the GIT (gastrointestinal tract) and works with the first brain. The healthier our guts are, the more balanced our bodies chemistry. When adding CBD into your daily routine, you are strengthening all the natural processes that occur internally.

This recipe provides plenty of natural healthy oils, vitamins, minerals and fibre that aids good gut health and feeds our second brain, or GIT.
