If you are anything like most of us cooking can oftentimes feel super overwhelming. Not only is it overwhelming trying not to burn everything, but then we pile on wanting to make our meals healthy too and it can rapidly feel like an unattainable feat.
As a Nutritionist and a real human person, it has always been my goal to demystify food and help us all build better relationships with the foods we love and a huge part of that is making cooking healthfully attainable for everyone.
In the interest of keeping life simple and stress-free, I felt like a super simple tuna salad was the way to go. I choose canned tuna because it is incredibly accessible, it is often on sale, you can get good quality, sustainably caught and canned tuna just about anywhere for a good price and it is an excellent source of healthy lean protein.
Tuna is also something I grew up eating and loving. My mom used to make loads and loads of tuna sandwiches for lunches, yes I was that kid with the stinky fish sandwich, but there were 4 of us, it was cheap, it was quick and it kept us full.
So, in the spirit of sharing things I love with you, here is a super simple and delicious tuna fish sandwich. It's simple, it's filling and it's a full meal and best part is no oven is required.
1 can tuna, drained
1 stalk celery or 1 dill pickle chopped
1 tbsp red onion diced
1/2 avocado, mashed
100 g sourdough bread, toasted (typically about 2 slices)
1 tsp Everything Bagel Seasoning
