So, recently I’ve been trying to cut down on a lot of unhealthy snacks, such as:
Crisps (or Chips for my US readers)
Basically, anything that has a high saturated fats, sugar and salt content. Oh! And carbs…I eat too much rice, I need to cut that down too! So, I’ve been watching and tracking what I eat, using a very handy little app called LifeSum. I’ll tell you all about that tomorrow, so stay tuned if you want to see how effective this app is! For now, I’ll be discussing one particular recipe I’ve found that is actually not too bad!
On the LifeSum app, there’s a section where you can browse a couple of recipes that can help with the plans they have on there. My current plan is the 2-Day Blaster. So, that means I can eat as I usually do (or at least what I should be eating regularly), for five days, and for two days of the week, I have to eat half as much, which is why we have a salad recipe today!
It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s tasty. What more can I say about it? Oh yeah! It’s also low in calories. So it’s great for fast day. Now, this recipe isn’t easy to find, and it took me a good fifteen minutes trying to find it online. However, thanks to my meticulous research, you guys can easily reach it. So, without further ado, here’s the Tuna and Tomato Salad.
For this you’ll need:
185 g canned tuna in olive oil, drained, flaked
420 g canned mixed beans, drained, rinsed
450 g medium tomatoes, chopped coarsely
25 g fresh coriander, chopped coarsely
A mixing bowl (or plate)
A fork (or two)
As always, this isn’t my own recipe, so I’ll be providing the link to the original page, but it’s so easy, you probably don’t need to look. You basically just mix everything together and it’s good to go! It’s so simple, even a child can make this.
I’m actually really glad I found this recipe. I don’t have to cook anything, there aren’t any complicated ingredients that I’d have to find at local farmer’s markets, and I can change it up however I need to. For a first-time chef, this would be perfect, because it’s literally just mixing things together, until you think it’s ready to be eaten.
Did I mention, it’s great for summer? If you’re having a picnic in the park, and soggy sandwiches aren’t your style, try making a tuna salad. It’s not only got proteins and all the good stuff that fish provide, the tomatoes and coriander give that zingy refreshing taste, so you feel like you’re eating healthily.
I love making this salad, it’s a great way to fill your stomach, when you don’t have much time for lunch, and it helps when you’re fasting. In my case, I tried making it with nori once, and that was an even better experience. I think I’m going to make this salad whenever we don’t have anything ready for lunch!
Well, that’s it from me today. It’s your turn. Have you tried out this recipe before? If not, will you? What do you think of it? What would you add to it? Leave your tips in the jar below, and we’ll see you soon!
