When you’re short on time, this recipe is a good one to turn to. It’s healthy, fresh, filling and high in nutrients.

This is my mom’s recipe. She was a working super-mom. She was very busy, yet she managed to get it all done. And I guess recipes like these helped her along the way.

This literally takes 10 minutes to make. It’s high in protein, contains lots of healthy veggies and is so easy to make. If my very fussy daughter approves, then it’s a winner.

With Christmas on the way, this is a good one to add to your Christmas lunch menu. When you have guests over, it’s great to have food that’s instant ready.

I don’t advise you to eat canned food on a daily basis, because it is preserved and contains additives. But, you can turn to canned tuna every now and then, because the health benefits outweigh the risks.


Tuna contains high levels of Omega3 fatty acids. Research shows that Omega3 is so good for your brain and heart.

This salad is also high in protein, with each serving giving you 29g of the important macro-nutrient.

If you’re on a weight loss journey, this salad is great because it’s low in calories but high in nutrients.
