tuna spinach salad

Updated: Sep 10, 2019


Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope you're having an awesome day today! I'm sure some of you are quite content as you might have the day off for Easter. Well, if you're celebrating Good Friday and can't eat meat, here is a new salad recipe for you, with tuna versus your regular chicken, or meat-based salads.

The main thing with tuna is to make sure that it's water-packed versus oil-packed to ensure that you're not adding any highly saturated fats to your diet. Also, water-packed tuna contains a slightly higher dose of omega 3's into your diet, which are great for reducing inflammation and also lowering your risk of various chronic diseases, such as heart disease, arthritis or diabetes.

My favorite brands that I like are Safe Catch, Wild Planet, American Tuna and even online from Thrive Market. They carry a lot of the brands I just mentioned too!

Anyways, here is the salad - super yummy & full of protein, omega's and good fats!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: N/A

Total Time: 10 minutes

Serving Size: 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of wild albacore or skipjack tuna (preferably from one of the brands above)

  • handful of greens (spinach, kale, arugula, etc)

  • 1/2 cup chopped celery

  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots

  • 1/2 cup chopped peppers

  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 1 organic tomato

  • 1/2 avocado

  • salt

  • pepper

  • Primal Kitchen avocado-oil mayonnaise

  • extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

  • In a large bowl, pour in the tuna and then mix in with the avocado-mayonnaise and salt and pepper

  • Then add in the chopped greens and other ingredients and mix until fully spread throughout

  • Add either a half (or whole) avocado on top for added healthy fats

  • Top off with some s + p and then more extra virgin olive oil for taste!

xoxo,
