Meal Prep Episode 1: TUNA SALAD

To all my working friends and family: meal prep sucks. I know. It’s worse with a food allergy, I promise.

However, I have compiled some wonderful meals to prepare either the night or weekend before your work week. They’re all dairy-free, of course, and super simple and cheap. For this first meal prep recipe, I present to you… tuna salad!

I think a lot of people shy away from tuna, especially in a can. I don’t necessarily blame you, but it’s just so simple and packed with protein. Don’t knock it til you try it — mix in some vegetables and spices and you have a pretty great meal!

I don’t need to bring lunch everyday to work luckily, but this is a recipe that can totally sit in your fridge all week. You can make it in bulk, too – it’s hard to mess this up.

Without further ado, here’s the recipe!
