Tuna Salad No Mayo Healthy with Greek Yogurt

July 30, 2017

Good Sunday afternoon to you!

I’m in the midst of tracking my macros (more on that on a later post!) and I needed to whip myself up a high protein late afternoon “snack” per say.  So I found myself throwing together some tuna salad.  I typically use avocado as my “creamy” element for tuna.  Today I wanted to save those fat macros so I tried something new.  The beauty of tuna salad is that you can add different savory or even sweet ingredients to get it to your liking.  Below the recipe I just threw together (and loved) for a high protein and low fat tuna salad sandwich.

No Mayo Healthy Tuna Salad with Greek Yogurt (and Fat Free Cottage Cheese)

Ingredients

  • 1 can of chunk light tuna in water
  • 2 oz of 0% fat Greek yogurt (I LOVE the Fage brand!)
  • 1.5 oz of fat free cottage cheese (more or less to your liking)
  • chopped onion
  • chopped apple

Directions

  1. First, drain the tuna, put into mixing bowl.
  2. Add all preferred ingredients. Make sure you mix your greek yogurt well, it can get weird and watery in the fridge.
  3. Put mixture between slices of bread.  I had a half sandwich with Nature’s Own Life Protein bread This bread has 8 grams of protein per slice, 9 grams of carbs, and 2.5g of fat. I also added some wilted spinach.
  4. Enjoy!

I’m always looking for new and easy high protein meal ideas.  It is easy (and super convenient!) to eat a protein bar or drink a shake, no doubt.  We should strive to get our macronutrients from whole foods as much as possible.  This tuna salad is a great way to do so!

 

How do you like your tuna salad?
