Spring has finally sprung, and that means we are craving light, fresh, and color meals! We are also wanting to spend less time in the kitchen and more time outside. Insert this nutrient-dense, beautiful, 10-minute recipe! 

Not only does this Ahi Tuna Watercress Poke Bowl pack in a ton of nutrients, thanks to our friends, watercress, carrots, cabbage, cucumber, and edamame. But, it also has a great balance of protein from the ahi tuna and carbs from the rice. Let’s not forget some healthy fats from sesame oil and sesame seeds in the marinade. 

We have been sharing a lot about watercress lately because, well, we love it! We love how affordable it is, how easy it is to incorporate into a variety of different recipes, and how it has so many health benefits! Hello, slow skin aging! 

Usually, when you think “greens,” you automatically gravitate towards something like a salad. But, as we showed you with the pesto recipe, you aren’t just limited to salads. We mean, take a look at this gorgeous Ahi Tuna and Watercress Poke Bowl. It may be kind of salad-Esq, but would you have thought to use watercress in a poke bowl Or, even meal prep with it like this? 

Having fresh ingredients, like watercress, on hand, helps make meal prepping much easier, more delicious, much more beautiful, and, of course, healthy all at the same time!
