Foodie Friday: Greened Tuna Salad

Posted Nov 17 2011 3:36pm
No. Not Greened as in Moldy. Green as in.. with some yummy green vegetables.


This greened Tuna Salad is a great alternative to plan old tuna fish with mayonnaise.  I made a big batch at the beginning of the week and have brought it for lunch a couple of times.


I’ve been trying to make some changes to my food intake lately – as my tummy issues have been acting up again.  I am trying to NOT have a sandwich every day for lunch – as a lot of fiber comes from the breads that I eat .. and I am experimenting to see if a decrease in my (abundance) of fiber will help any. (Aka.. I am trying to have the normal amount of fiber in a day.. rather then going WAY over).


I’ve also stopped having Oat Bran for breakfast every day.. and am only eating oats one or two times a week.  1/2 a serving of Oat Bran has 7 grams of fiber in it! That is almost 25% of what I should have daily.. and I’d rather have my fruits and veggies then oat bran!  I am hoping that after a couple of weeks of this change, I will see some differences.. or else it is back to the doctor I go!


Sooo.. I made this tuna salad as an alternative to my favorite lunch and I look forward to eating it every day – so I suppose that is a PLUS!

This was a perfect way to switch up my lunches.. and I am sure I will be making this again sometime soon!!
