Easy Tuna Bean Salad

Sorry for the hiatus in posting – I was out of town last weekend for a work related trip. While away, I managed to get in a couple workouts at the hotel fitness room. I did one 5-mile run:

And I also got in a 45 minute elliptical workout. I was staying at a Hilton, and the fitness center had the essentials but nothing fancy: two treadmills, two ellipticals, two bikes, and some dumbbells.

When I got home, I was very ready to return to normal eating (food on vacation is fun for a little, but I like to return to my regular routine). I decided to make some tuna bean salad for lunches during the week. This recipe was really easy, took about 10 minutes to put together, and will provide healthy and delicious lunches all week! This is all you need:

One large can of cannellini beans, one can of tuna, plain greek yogurt, dijon mustard, and capers. I drained and rinsed the beans, drained the tuna, and combined them in a bowl. I topped them with about 1/4 cup of chobani (generously portioned), one tablespoon of dijon mustard, and approximately 1.5 tablespoons of drained capers:

Mix it all up:

Divide into four lunches (I put my tuna salad over spinach):

Top with tomato:

And eat yummy lunches all week! When I bring these to work, I’ll also bring some pita and hummus to eat with.

  1. Love this. It’s so easy to prep a healthy dish ahead of time (adding CHO, of course!) and splitting it up into tasty, simple meals for the week. It makes getting ready in the morning a piece o’ cake! Mmmm, speaking of cake…off to Pinterest we go! 🙂

    Amy, @Chobani
