Usually I eat tuna for lunch, just plain old canned tuna mixed with some light mayo, mustard and relish, but tonight for dinner I decided to get a little creative!
I made some tuna patties, and topped them on a bed of spinach with a sweet potato, and drizzled a little spicy Dijon mustard on top!
Really flavorful dish, packed with protein, low in fat, and hit the taste buds perfectly!
1 can of Tuna (I get mine from Costco, 7.5oz)
1 T Chia seeds
3 T egg whites
1 T chopped onion
1 T chopped parsley
1/2 clove garlic and some garlic salt
1/2 T lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
Mix everything together in a bowl and form two patties with your hands. Place on a heated frying pan for about 7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown/crispy edges.
Mine kind of fell apart when I tried picking them up with the spatula, so I might add more egg next time to help hold them together a little more. Maybe even a whole egg with yolk.
If you have any other variations, I would love to hear!
Eating healthy takes commitment, it's a lifestyle.
I love food, that's a given...but I also love to eat healthy. I try to workout three times a week, and eat a lot of protein. These are some snacks, meals, and desserts that are healthy, but also very good! Eating healthy doesn't have to be plain and boring!
