Quick and Easy Whole30 Tuna Salad

Habits such as meal prepping and making certain recipes part of my routine, have helped me make everyday-healthy-eating something that just happens naturally now. This tuna salad has become one of my favorite routine lunches, and I eat it at least three times a week because of how simple, quick, and tasty it is. Oh, and best of all, it abides by Paleo and Whole30 guidelines... woo hoo! Don’t you love when healthy food tastes wonderful, but also leaves you feeling satisfied? This recipe would also be great to meal prep for weekday lunches since it lasts 3-5 days in the fridge. I added a simple lemon/EVOO kale salad and apple slices to go with mine today, but the sides are endless: cucumber slices, carrots, celery, GF crackers… the list goes on and on!

All you need to do is combine 1 can of tuna (I prefer SafeCatch), 1-2 tablespoon Primal Kitchen Mayo or homemade mayo, a big squeeze of lemon, some finely chopped celery, and salt & pepper to taste. I also added one date, chopped into pieces, to sweeten mine up; however, unsweetened cranberries would do the trick too. Thanks to @thedefineddish for introducing me to her easy tuna salad recipe which was the inspiration for today’s lunch!
