My Favorite Delicious and Healthy Low Calorie Lunch, it’s packed with protein!


This recipe is only 310 calories (210 if you omit the crackers) and 30 grams of protein (great for after a workout)! I eat this on a regular basis and love it! The carrots and pickles give it a nice crunch, especially if you are omitting the crackers.

Prep: 3-5 min

Cook: NONE

Serves: 1


  • 1 Can of low sodium chunk light albacore tuna in water, I like Bumble Bee brand
  • 1 Handful of carrot sticks, chopped
  • 2 Clausen pickle spears, chopped
  • 1 Small bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Handful of baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 TBS Kraft light mayo, made with olive oil
  • 1 TBS spicy mustard
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste
Mix together and serve with crackers of your choice! Enjoy 🙂

About zestybeandog

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!
