Basic Tuna Salad

Sharing Is Caring

 My mom used to make the best tuna fish sandwiches. She added chopped sweet pickles and a dash of sugar. It was divine! But, neither of those are keto friendly so I cut them out. The key to keto success is meal planning and having an arsenal of well-rounded GOOD recipes! I want to take it back to the basics today because sometimes you’re simply not going to be in mood for a big heavy meal that you have to cook. Sometimes, you won’t want to fry bacon. Sometimes, you’ll need something quick and healthy without all the fuss. And when you first start keto, it’s good to have some SIMPLE recipes | skills to have for those days. Also, not everyone is comfortable in the kitchen and basic tutorials like this could be really helpful! I present you with tuna salad. Now, before you roll your eyes and mumble “ugh, seriously?”, hear me out. I think tuna salad is underrated. It’s chalked full of protein, vitamins, and minerals. It’s cheap as hell. At ZERO CARBS, it’s a pretty versatile keto ingredient. I buy canned tuna (packed in water) at Costco. I believe it’s 8 cans for maybe $5?  The actual amount escapes me but it is dirt cheap! If you’re penny pinching one week, tired of cooking, or whatever, whip up some tuna fish.  This will keep in the fridge for 2 or 3 days and is wayyyyy cheaper than buying those individual packages +  you eliminate preservatives!  Eat it on a low carb wrap, with Cello cheese whisps (as I did), or over a simple salad. You’ll be full and have zero guilt! My 6 year old even loves it! MACROS: 28g F | 0g C | 28.5g P | 372 Cal You will need:-2 cans of tuna, packed in water-1/2 cup avocado oil mayo-1 teaspoon mustard -3 hardboiled eggs (not pictured because they were boiling, oops!)-1/4 teaspoon pepper Drain your tuna and transfer to bowl. Break up with a fork until it’s pretty shredded. Add your mayonnaise, pepper, and mustard. Toss to combine.  Place 3 eggs in pot covered with water. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 8 minutes. Drain hot water to stop the cooking process. Add cold water to pan. With water running, peel eggs under the water. This will help their shells peel off easier.  If your eggs are really fresh, putting a dash baking soda in the water while they boil will help them peel easier.  Give the eggs a rough chop and fold them into the tuna. That’s all folks. 10 minutes start to finish! This makes 4 servings. I used Cello Cheese Whisps to scoop mine! Yum yum!  This is the perfect ZERO CARB + HIGH FAT snack | lunch | lazy dinner recipe! For more keto recipes, humor, and motivation, follow me on Instagram (@keto_in_pearls) AND like my NEW Facebook page (Keto In Pearls)!  Printable recipe here! KCKO,Anna
