Good morning everyone and happy Monday!
Today I am excited to share with you an absolute staple in my repertoire of lunch salads. This tuna salad is loaded in fresh vegetables, beans, herbs, and essential fatty acids delivering a hefty nutritional punch to get you through the afternoon.
Traditional tuna salad is made with a lot of mayo, which contains saturated fat, and some celery and onions. Additionally, the tuna likely has a lot of mercury as standard tuna tends to have.
I am going to urge you to spend a little extra money and get either low mercury or mercury free tuna. Mercury is bad for your health and if you tend to rely on tuna and fish as a protein source, then you definitely want to be mindful of doing what you can to keep mercury intake low. You can purchase low mercury tuna in health food stores.
To the tuna I add fresh, wholesome ingredients to increase its nutritional value and then dress it with olive oil and lemon juice. It is light and delicious and loaded in color, flavor and texture.
Take a look and see what you think. It is easy to whip this up the night before and bring to the office with some gluten free crackers or my favorite, endive, for an amazingly healthy meal that will have you focused and feeling great all afternoon.
As always, love your feedback, so leave me a note below. Give this a try and let me know what you think. I am sure you’ll love it!
Have a great start to your week and I look forward to connecting with you again next Monday!
