Tuna Talk

Most of the fat in albacore tuna is healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Increasing your intake of this type of fat is associated with increased fat-burning and enhanced recovery.

Replace the light mayo in your tuna salad with reduced-fat (2%) Greek yogurt, which is high in protein and lower in fat. To boost the protein even more, mix in a chopped hard-boiled egg. Add grated carrots for crunch and scoop the salad into celery stalks for a low-carb snack or lunch.

Clean Eating Tuna Salad Recipe
(Makes approximately 8 servings)
3 cans water-packed tuna
1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 carrot – grated
1/2 tsp. dried dill
1 tsp. dried parsley
1 small tomato
1/4 tsp. dijon mustard
1/2 a small white onion
1 hard boiled egg
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. agave (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Step 1 – Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and serve on whole grain bread as a sandwich or fill some celery stalks for a snack.

ENJOY! :)
