I made a new discovery at lunch today…..I really really really like canned salmon!! I always thought it sounded so gross…tuna was fine, but salmon–no way! I can never really get full though when I eat those little tuna pouches no matter what I do for some reason and I had a forlorn can of salmon in the back of my cabinet that needed to be eaten so I thought why not? It was so great and I am going to buy more next trip to the store!! I mixed 3 ounces of it (basically the entire can) with 1.5 tbsp light miracle whip, a chopped up carrot and some celery. I also mixed in some whole grain dijon mustard. It was very filling and tasty as well! Way more filling than canned tuna for some reason I can’t understand. I also packed a homemade roll from the other night to make a little sandwich with my salmon salad. Yum! On top of that, I had 1/2 cup of Cedar’s Tabbouli salad (my FAVORITE!) and a half cup of red grapes. This lunch was great and filled me up until I had my snack of 4 ounces cottage cheese and pear slices at 3. It was easy, portable and tasty—highly recommended!
Sorry the grape picture didn’t turn out so well! They sure tasted good though!
This entire lunch was about 549 calories.
Off to make dinner! 🙂
