6 Easy Meals With The Tuna Toss

By Cassye 4

The Tuna Toss is an iconic clean eating recipe I took from an old article in Oxygen magazine. I can’t find the original recipe now or remember what it was called, but I wanted to pass along this wonderfully quick lunch or anytime meal that you can build on with this amazing protein source and just about anything else in your kitchen. No cooking required!

Here’s how you build it:

Protein = 1 tuna pouch, low sodium chunk light (albacore has too much mercury in it). Preferrably pole/troll caught. About 17g protein

Fat = 1/4 avocado, 1/4 cup nuts or 2 tbl most low fat dressings

Carbs = Triscuits, sprouted grain toast/tortilla or brown rice cake

Flair = More veggies, a little salsa, or peppers for garnish

strawberriesTuna or even canned chicken can be a great base. Other good carbs are black beans, brown rice, diced sweet potato, quinoa, Beanitos and even fruit. Stone fruits like peaches and plums, along with berries and apples taste great with meat. I love the versatility of throwing what I have into an easy meal. Use your imagination and see what you come up with!

Here are 6 to get you started:

CANNED TUNA IS MY ABSOLUTE LIFE and I TOSS IT IN EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING I TELL YOU! I love this brand a ton however, I adore tunas packed in olive oil because the oil gives whatever I am tossing it in with more flavor! 😀 BumbleBee tuna has this friggin’ AMAZING Sun-Dried Tomato Tuna I go nuts for… And their Jalapeno Tuna… Ooo SNAP!

Mmm the sun dried tomato and jalapeno options sound fun. I clearly need to branch out with my shopping excursions. Thanks for the tips!

I love this idea! So simple and quick to throw together. Having a few of these ready to go in the fridge would make a great snack too.

Yes indeed, even one step beyond tearing the pouch open – great planning skills! I need to get more of them.
