Lately, I’ve been really trying to focus on prepping our meals each Sunday. I browse the pantry to figure out our dinner for each night and then I prep items to make everything simple during the week. If you’re looking for any new ideas, be sure to check out my new Facebook group!
When I first started doing this, I realized I needed to focus on my lunches, as well. With a baby at home, meal times can be small windows of time. I wanted to ensure that I could eat something delicious quickly, yet have it be healthy too!
In our pantry, we always have StarKist’s tuna pouches on hand. On the go, I’ll grab a pouch and a hard boiled egg for an easy protein boost (and SO Weight Watchers friendly!). If I have more time, I like to add the flavored tuna to salads or wraps. The pouches come ready to eat, so they can be enjoyed at anytime!
Have you seen the new StarKist Tuna Creations® BOLD flavored pouches? I saw the the BOLD Tapatío at the store and knew I had to stock up. It has just the right amount of spice to it and the sweetness of lime juice pairs well with the heat. It’s great to use for a kicked up tuna salad! I use Greek yogurt, avocado and a bit of ranch powder to mix it up for wraps.
Other Tuna Creations® BOLD varieties include:Thai Chili Style, Jalapeño, Hot Buffalo Style,
Sriracha and Rice & Beans in Hot Sauce. Each packet is under 110 calories and full of flavor!
This tuna cake recipe is my new obsession for lunch. Think crab cake consistency with tuna. SO quick and easy to make a small or large batch, too.
