Quinoa And Tuna Salad – Healthy Lunchbox – Office Food

We’re now almost 6 weeks into 2019. How are your resolutions going? Are they still a thing? ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.

Enjoy!

  1. Mmm yummy Alphe! I love tuna and tuna salad. Sometimes I open a can of tuna, add lots of black pepper and a bit of Mayo and eat the entire can! You should come cook for me LOL! ๐Ÿ˜Žโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

  2. What a perfect salad! I don’t make New Years resolutions. But I do strive to eat healthy. Having a nice salad like the one you made is a perfect lunch! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• Bernice cooking with Supper Plate

    1. That’s true! I’m no expert in tuna production, but all of the canned tuna I’ve used so far was actually already kind of in chunks or flakes – if you simply put a fork inside and move it around, the fish instantly falls apart.

  3. I like this salad! Or, at least, I _think_ I like it, because I’ve never eaten quinoa! ๐Ÿ™‚ However, I’ve eaten salads made with tuna and sweet corn, and I like them very much. But recently I’ve read something about corn and mycotoxins and I haven’t eaten corn anymore, thinking it could be dangerous, but I still have to look into this matter better.
    Resolutions? They are going quite well, even though I’m a bit behind schedule!

    1. Forget the schedule, what matters is that we try!
      Tuna and sweet corn are just meant to be eaten together – so, so delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚
      I haven’t heard about the mycotoxins… and I’m not sure if I want to know about them, I love corn ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
