I like tuna salad over 2 cups of spinach leaves. Here is a tuna salad recipe my hubby and I enjoy.

3-bean tuna salad
1/2 c kidney beans (canned-rinsed and drained)
1/3 c. navy beans (canned-rinsed and drained)
1/3 c. black beans (canned-rinsed and drained)
1/2 c. cubed avocado
1/4 c. green onions (sliced thin)
6oz tuna (drained)

Combine all ingredients with 3 tablespoons of honey-mustard dressing (Make home-made dressing by mixing 1/4 c. flax or olive oil, 1/4 c. low-fat yogurt, 1/2 tsp. minced garlic, 1/2 tbsp honey, 1/2 tsp dijon mustard, and a pinch of paprika).

If you eat it all (my hubby does, and it is a lot!) it is 606 calories, 13.5 g fat, 58.9 g carbs, 62.3 g protein. I only eat half and it is really filling. Because of the carbs in this meal, we only eat it after a workout.

Low-carb option:
1 can tuna
1/2 c. diced tomatoes
1/4 c. diced red onions
1/2 c. shredded carrots
1/2 c. diced cucumber
1/2 avocado
salt, pepper, paprika to taste

Mix with the home-made honey mustard dressing.
