Tuna on Toast Lunch Plate

This is a nice quick lunch that is satisfying and nutritious. Don’t like pickles? Try chopped celery or onion in the tuna instead. Change up the side vegetable for variety. But I like to keep the tzatziki (dip made of yogurt, garlic and cucumber) for dipping, it’s lo cal and yummy.

Tuna with Lemon

This lunch is really quick and a great one to pack in a lunch bag and bring to work. Serve over lettuce if you wish, but I prefer to eat it next to a salad with a zesty low fat dressing.
