QUICK & EASY AVOCADO TUNA EGG SALAD
(please note that this recipe is sponsored by Wild Harvest, but all opinions are honest and genuine!)
Even though I’m lucky enough to work for myself from home I still count on quick and easy lunches to fuel my day. When I first started my entrepreneurial journey, I took up WAY too much time in the middle of the day making my lunches. Chopping, roasting, sautéing… I realized it was getting out of hand.
One of the biggest things I’ve learned from being an entrepreneur is still maximizing my time and acting, in some ways, as I would if I had a traditional, out-of-the-house job. The biggest way I do this? Meal prep, meal prep, meal prep!
I neglected meal prep the first few months working for myself and I realized how badly I missed being able to just grab lunch and feel like I could actually sit down and enjoy it because I hadn’t already taken “too much time” preparing and cooking it.
Besides the time-saving factor of meal prepping, I also love the money saving aspect. How can you save money through meal prep?
Well, meal prep forces you to meal plan, meaning you create a weekly game plan for lunches and dinners (and breakfasts if you want!). This helps you know exactly what you need to buy and keeps you from buying a lot of extras “just in case.” Start by creating your meal plan list and then create a grocery list off of that; when you go into the store with a solid plan of action it keeps you on-track and on-budget.
This tuna egg salad has been one of my favorite quick, easy and budget-friendly meal prep options lately for lunch. It’s packed full of protein, healthy fats and nutrients to fuel my work day and keep my brain sharp and alert.
And I know – tuna and egg together!? Sounds weird doesn’t it? When my mom mentioned the combo a few weeks ago I thought she was crazy too. But then I whipped up this recipe and I can’t stop eating it!
I loved using the Wild Harvest tuna in it because it’s high-quality but didn’t take a toll on my wallet like so many other protein options. Mixed with the egg you get an even bigger protein punch and the avocado gives a good dose of healthy fats. Served over a bed of greens, on toast or with paleo crackers and you’ve got yourself a perfect meal!
I love how many options Wild Harvest has – from my baking staples like the coconut flour used in my paleo snickerdoodles to the spices and bone broth used in my Thai curry soup – they’ve got it all! They also make sure their products are free from over 140 undesirable ingredients that are in many products today.
