Who doesn't love a big ol' fresh salad?! They are easily one of my favorite meals to make during the day, especially for lunch, to give me a nice brain boost in between client calls and other projects!
One of my favorites to make is a tuna salad -- my mom used to make them as a staple for me growing up for lunch whenever I was at home, and they have continued to be a part of my life! They are just an easy way to get some real food & nourishing protein in your diet without all of the hassle of having to come up with a detailed recipe!
Here is one of my favorites:
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serving Size: 1-2 salads (depending on size)
chopped bell pepper
extra-virgin olive oil
avocado-oil based mayonnaise
Pour tuna into a bowl and mix with some avocado-oil based mayonnaise (Primal Kitchen is my favorite) along with some salt + pepper.
Place spinach as the base of the bowl/plate.
Top with tuna, chopped cucumber, chopped bell pepper, chopped onion, walnuts and tomato.
Sprinkle hemp seeds on top for added omegas (optional) and/or extra-virgin olive oil for added healthy fat!
