10 Minute Tuna Salad

Ingredients:

  • ½ gem lettuce
  • ½ red onion
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 can of tuna in sunflower oil
  • 2 eggs
  • mixed leaves

for the dressing:

  • ½ tbsp mayonnaise
  • ½ tbsp mustard
  • ¼ tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp Italian herb seasoning
  • salt, pepper

Directions:

Peel and very finely slice the red onion, finely slice the lettuce and cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters. Drain the tuna, but keep the oil for the dressing. Boil the eggs for 7-8 minutes, peel and let it cool for few minutes, then cut it into quarters.

To assemble the salad, add mixed leaves, lettuce, red onion, cherry tomatoes, tuna and eggs to a plate and top with dressing.

Bon Appétit!

Protein Without Meat - Lunch Idea

When I stopped eating meat almost twenty years ago, my parents told me I’d never get enough protein.  They also told me it was a phase.  Haha, joke’s on them.

I like to make the same lunch for each day of any given week and then switch things up the next week.  Here is this week’s lunch that contains a little over 36 grams of protein.

First, you have to make the fake “tuna”.  Mash up a can of chickpeas with a fork, throw on a couple tablespoons of Vegenaise, a tablespoon of nutritional yeast, and a pinch of dulse flakes.  Just Mayo is a brand of vegan mayo you can find at most grocery stores and it’s probably less expensive than the name brand.  You can also use good old fashioned Miracle Whip.  Nutritional yeast can usually be found in a grocery store that has a bulk foods section (or in an expensive-ass container at Whole Foods).  Dulse flakes are a little trickier.  Whole Foods has them, I believe.  I order mine off Amazon to save some bucks, and they last forever.

Mix it all up and spoon some into a flatbread. Flatout has some high-protein, low-carb ones.  Roll that baby up and you’ve got a very filling entree.

I nestled it into my lunch container with some wheat crackers, green grapes, walnuts, and a half a cup of plain Fage greek yogurt.  The other greek yogurts are imposters.  Fage is the best.

I usually drizzle some honey or agave nectar on the yogurt and eat it with the walnuts mixed in.  It goes great with the grapes, too.  If you’ve got a long day ahead of you, this is a really good lunch.  You’ll feel stuffed when you’re finished eating, and it will keep you full for hours and hours.

That’s my meatless eating lesson for the week, ya’ll. Yay.

anonymous asked:

blake can't be vegetarian she eats tuna. but birds of that size aren't for eating, at least not by people. not worth the effort it takes to clean and cook them since they're so small. You'd need like eight of them just to have enough to feed someone Ghira's size. so ofc she wasn't eating the birds. plus they're to adorable to eat.

FUCKIT SHE’S A PESCETARIAN NOW YALL ARE MAKING THIS HARD
