Colorful Tuna Lunch Salad

PACKING A HEALTHY LUNCH SHOULDN'T BE COMPLICATED.

This colorful lunch is a variation on an old school classic.  Tuna salad can be such a healthy, easy option that anyone can toss together on the fly. For me, it's a go-to meal when I'm in a hurry but still need something nourishing. The protein keeps me feeling full all afternoon while the vibrant colors act as an instant energizer. 
 

INGREDIENTS: SERVES 2

+ 1 can Tuna in water, no salt added
+ 4 tbsp Vegenaise
+ 4 tbsp dried Cranberries
+ 2 large Heirloom Carrots, sliced thinly
+ Handful Red Onion, sliced
+ 4 tbsp Almonds, chopped
+ 2 cups Greens (watercress, bib lettuce)
+ Salt, Pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Drain tuna. Mix with the vegenaise. Add in carrots, onion, cranberries and almonds. Season to taste. Serve with greens.

ENJOY!

+ Make it Extra Special

Any 'green' component will work here!! Sick of lettuce? (ha like that ever happens...) Try broccolini instead!
