Clean Eating Tuna Salad

I love me some tuna salad! It's packed with protein and quick to make! I typically eat this for lunch but it very well could be a quick dinner too!

(makes 2 servings of the tuna mixture)
  • 1 6oz can of Starkist Low Sodium Chunk Light Tuna in water
  • 2 oz 0% plain greek yogurt
  • 6 baby carrots, shredded
  • 1 oz 2% low fat mild cheddar cheese, sliced from a brick of cheese
  • 1 Thomas' whole wheat english muffin

  1. Drain tuna and spoon into a bowl.
  2. Measure out 2 ounces of 0% plain greek yogurt and add to tuna.
  3. Shred the carrots and add to the tuna/yogurt mixture and combine together.
  4. Toast your english muffin and top the muffin with 1/2 of the tuna mixture and all of the cheese.
  5. Save the extra tuna for tomorrow's lunch or snack.
  6. ENJOY!
If there are too many grams of fat in this recipe for you, you can use 1/2 a serving of cheese instead of the full 1oz serving. That should cut the fat down to around 5.
