This week I am working six days, so today is my day to cook my meals for the week. I have been browsing recipes trying to find meals that include anything but chicken. I love chicken, but I’m a bit chickened out. 😉
Rather than spend my only day off in the kitchen, I have decided to keep it easy. This week, I will do a tuna salad salad.
If you have not tried this “mayo”, holy moly, it is awesome! I am not a fan of mayonnaise, but sometimes need it for recipes, and this is an amazing alternative.
To make the tuna: I used regular tuna in water. I added cucumber, carrots, pineapple chunks, and olives to the tuna. I mixed the tuna with Vegenaise non-dairy mayo, and added a tiny bit of pineapple juice for some sweetness. I sprinkled some non-dairy vegan cheese on the top. I added a lemon wedge because I love a spritz of lemon juice to give my food a zangy pop! I plopped a good sized portion of the tuna on top of a bed of baby spinach. 🙂
I sautéed asparagus in olive oil, pepper, sea salt and garlic.
I’ll have my standard baggie of fresh, raw green beans, a handful of almonds, and since organic red delicious apples were the same price as regular, an organic red delicious apple will also be a yummy snack.
