Friday Feast – Bean and Tuna Salad
It’s Friday evening and you want to make something quick, yet healthy. So you look through your pantry and fridge and try to figure something out. If you’re like me and go shopping on the weekend, you might have a limited source of ingredients. If I haven’t planned ahead, Friday meals can be a bit “scrounged.” So here’s what I came up with tonight.
It actually didn’t take long at all. I grabbed a can of pinto beans and kidney beans (no salt added), two cans of tuna (in water), and a can of diced tomato with green chili for a bit of a kick. Rinsed and mixed, and then I used about 1/4 greek yogurt to hold it together. You can also season with any spices that you wish. For the veggie side I peeled and shredded a sweet potato in my cuisinart. To cook it I just put it in the microwave for a few minutes. I cooked the broccoli and kale in coconut oil on the stove – just until it turned bright green. Throw it on a plate and I have a quick and healthy meal!
What kind of healthy meal have you put together quickly?
