1. Tuna Salad Low Carb

I like low carb dishes very much, but I’m always looking for a kick. If I’m honest, I just need a nice meal on my plate and a wonderful pleasure.

Losing weight is really fun with this salad!

Low Carb is quite simple in this case… The tuna fish puts a lot of protein on your plate, the other ingredients are only vegetables and fruit, all packed delicious.

White tuna from the glass deserves your attention. You can take the fillets out wonderfully and the fish tastes incredibly delicious.

Further tips on the recipe

  • Instead of spinach use a colourful salad mix.
  • Combine other vegetables such as asparagus, fried mushrooms or beetroot with salad.
  • Use the oil of the canned tuna for the salad dressing, it contains many valuable Omega 3 fatty acids.
  • You can replace honey with sweetener or birch sugar.

Here we go 🙂
