High protein tuna-egg salad
Sandwiches are the most obvious choice for lunch, but lunch can be so much more. It’s a great moment to incorporate some vegetables into your diet. I tend to have most of my carbs at breakfast and around my workout. So during my lunch break, I try to boost my fat and vegetable intake. In this post I will share my high protein tuna-egg salad with you guys. This salad is rich in high quality protein, healthy fats and it contains a decent amount of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Because of the protein content and the low-energy-dense foods used, this salad will keep you satiated and full until your next meal or snack. It’s a low-carb lunch, but you can always have a slice of bread or toast with the salad.
