Great source of protein!!!! Are you eating enough protein??? Tuna and Greek yogurt are 2 great and affordable sources. I eat Greek yogurt every day at some point whether it is in tuna salad like this, with granola or alone with berries or fruit. Try just adding Greek yogurt to something you are maybe already eating daily and watch what happens!!! It is an awesome and healthy substitute to mayo or even cheese when called for in recipes.
2 4.5 cans of white albacore tuna (StarKist selects if you are feeling fancy!) Great source of omega 3, low sodium, high protein, low carb)
3/4 c Greek yogurt (my favorite healthy food in the whole world)
2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
2 tsp wasabi mustard
3/4 c chopped cucumber
2 tsp chopped onion
1 stalk chopped celery
salt, pepper and parsley to taste
Options to eat:
Alone with whole wheat pita chips
On a flatout flat bread with more veggies
With hard-boiled eggs, cheese and tomatoes on a platter
Be creative and sneak other veggies, herbs or spices in there-you don’t have to do it exactly how I posted it!
