Lemon Tuna Salad

Lemon Tuna Salad

Instead of slapping tuna salad between two slices of bread and loading it with mayo, try this low fat, low carb, lemony alternative.

Tuna is a fantastic source of protein and omega 3s, as well as tons of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. This protein packed pez (fish) provides metabolic energy and slows the absorption of carbs into your blood stream to help sustain your energy through the day. Additionally, its high in selenium, vitamin D, phosphorus and calcium so its great for your bones, teeth and overall health.

Both the tuna and the greens are dressed with fresh lemon juice, so if the health benefits from the tuna weren’t enough for you to give it a try, maybe the lemons will put you over the edge. With the power to help fight infection, lower blood pressure, improve skin and detoxify your digestive system, this calorie free little tart is a must have in your diet!

Try adding salt, pepper, lemon juice and a tiny bit of low fat mayo to a can of solid white albacore tuna. Toss mixed greens and herbs (I like using dill, cilantro and parsley) with salt pepper and lemon and top with your tuna salad.

This lemony lunch is under 300 calories, amazing for you, and packs a flavorful punch!
