A Little Tuna Salad Action

tunasalad2(Canned food can be healthy too)

I’ve been feeling like all I do is spend money on food lately so I thought I’d dedicate myself to day in the kitchen making the most of the cheap food I already have in my fridge and cabinets. An old favorite suggested it’self to me while I was looking through the cupbords … Tuna Salad. I don’t know why I always want to eat out, there is so much good food I could enjoy at home. This meal rocked and honestly cost about $3 (which is about $15 less than what I’ve been finding myself spending on lunch every damn day lately). Also, I really can’t beat the “no carbs 50 grams of protein” thing we’ve got going on here, while working on cutting weight. PRETTY GOOD!

Ingredients:

Serves 2-4 people depending on hunger/weight-lifting status. 

  • 2 cans Solid Albacore Tuna
  • 1/2 can of baby artichoke hearts
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp mayo (home made if you want, but I was feeling lazy and went for the Hellman’s today)
  • 1 tbsp peruvian lime olive oil (some fancy shit here)
  • 1 tbsp white peach vinegar (also fancy)
  • 1 wedge of lemon, squeezed.

Method:
Mix it up. BAM!

Serve with sliced cucumbers or on a salad.
