We’re now almost 6 weeks into 2019. How are your resolutions going? Are they still a thing? 🙂 In case you’re still determined to eat healthily and struggle with finding ideas for a healthy lunchbox – I’ve got one for you! And if you’re not particularly interested in keeping your diet healthy – not a problem! This simple salad is super tasty, you can give it a try too!
This salad is a great source of lean protein (from tuna, egg, yoghurt, quinoa and peas), complex carbs (quinoa), and healthy oils (tuna). You can pretty much say that it’s packed with good nutrients to the maximum!
Quinoa and tuna salad:
- 50g tri-colour quinoa mix
- 1 hard-boiled egg
- 60g tuna (from a can, drained)
- 2 tablespoons green peas (from a can)
- 3 tablespoons sweet corn (from a can)
- 1 tablespoon Greek yoghurt
- salt, pepper, italian herbs
Cook quinoa following the instructions on the package, drain it, let it cool.
Cut the egg into small chunks. Drain the tuna and crumble it into smaller shreds. I recommend using tuna canned in plain water, not oil or some other sauce.
Combine all ingredients in your lunchbox. Season the salad to taste with salt, pepper and herbs.
