This has been another interesting week, and one which has tested me again, to stay on track while just living a normal everyday life. I am trying to make my new way of eating a lifestyle change, so I want to be able to occasionally have a treat, like the yummy pizza I made for the Fantastic Bake Along over the weekend, without feeling guilty, or falling back into old habits. So far I have been successful! This week, despite a road trip, and indulging in real pizza over the weekend, I lost 2.7 pounds for a total now of 34.4 pounds!
Now for the fun bit! Today I want to share a recipe for tuna salad that I made last week. I’ve been experimenting with tuna salad dishes that don’t have mayonnaise in them, I would prefer a “healthy” oil instead.
For my tuna salad I used:
- 1 can Clover white tuna in water, drained
- 1/2 cup English cucumber, diced
- 1/2 roma tomato, diced
- 1/4 green pepper, diced
- 1 medium shallot, finely diced
- juice from 1/4 lemon
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- salt and pepper to taste
I drained the tuna and put it into a dish, then I diced all the veggies and added them.
Add the lemon juice, avocado oil, salt, and pepper, and mix together.
I split this into 2 servings so that I could have the second half for lunch the next day, and served it with a few multigrain crackers and fruit. I was quite happy with this mixture, a few other recipes I tried were quite wet, and soggy, but this seemed to be just moist enough for my taste.
Do you have a good tuna salad recipe to share? I am always looking for new recipes to try (not just for tuna) so that I don’t get bored with the same old thing. I’m especially looking for recipes that don’t require much (or any) cooking, for the summer, so if you have any, please share.
