So, I've struggled a little bit with carb craving. I'll admit that last night my son's school sent Bulgar home with him (I know - San Francisco) and I snuck a few mouthfuls. At least it's gluten free, right?
My biggest cravings have been coming around lunch time. This is when I usually snack all day long to keep myself occupied.
I had some applesauce, a plum, and a few cashews - it worked okay. Then it was time for lunch.
I decided to try to make some tuna salad. Which I usually enjoy with Mayo, sweet relish, celery, onion, and heated up between two slices of sourdough with cheddar melted. Yeah. Shouldn't have written that.
So, to be clear - this is NOT that. But it is a pretty good substitute and satisfied that craving.
And, I didn't feel like crap afterwards - so that rocks.
1 can tuna
1 rib of celery - chopped super tiny (I had to google that - kept wanting to call it an "arm" of celery)
1/8 red onion - chopped super tiny
1/2 cucumber - peeled and sliced into thin rounds
a great knife
If you have a crappy knife, this recipe will take you a long time and be annoying.
Mix the tuna, avocado, celery, onion together. Mash the avocado up to bind the other ingredients together. Add a little kosher salt, pepper and garlic powder (to taste).
Serve on cucumber chips (or in a lettuce wrap).
