Spicy Tuna & Crab Poke Bowl

In addition to ensuring you get adequate protein and micronutrients, adding some extra spice and flavour is a great way to hack your hunger and fullness signals.  

Taragoshi is a small hot red Japanese chilli you can get as a flavourful mix in a bottle at your supermarket.  If you can’t find togarashi, you can your favourite spice or even some pickled ginger or fresh cilantro.

In addition to taste, this poke bowl is packed with protein from the tuna and crab, which also bring omega 3, selenium, and vitamins A, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D and K1.  

Seaweed, kale, and spinach are chock full of vitamin A, calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium.  Avocado brings a luxurious fatty taste profile along with some folate and potassium.
