Lean Tuna Salad

This recipe is the sixth in a series on "A Month of Meal Plans and Groceries in 30 Minutes." - link HERE

We shop for a month at a time, for more explanation on how we do this see the above blog post link. It saves a ton of time, money, and calories from buying off plan items. I will also be sharing with you a week of my eating and how I plan these recipes into my diet.

I love this simple recipe, and it is something you can whip together in a flash when you don't have much time. My kids like tuna sandwiches made with mayo or tuna salad with crackers, so the whole family can enjoy some variation.

Lean Tuna Salad

Serves 1

5 oz can tuna in water
1 tbsp pickle relish
2 tbsp mustard
1 cup baby kale
1 thin sandwich bread roll
10 baby carrots

Drain tuna and mix with relish and mustard. Salt and pepper as desired. (Zero calorie seasonings are great here, try lemon pepper or Greek seasoning in your tuna salad!)

On a plate, lay each half of the thin sandwich roll, top with kale leaves and then split the tuna between the rolls. Serve carrots alongside. Enjoy!
