Not Your Momma’s Tuna

Power Tuna.  Paleo Auto-Immune Tuna. Low fat. Super Healthy.

This is not your Momma’s tuna but it is absolutely delicious.Fabulous Tuna! No fat! Just goodness!  Auto Immune Diet and Paleo friendly! With amazing flavor!

 

I recently had a doctor decide that he hates me and wanted me to start the auto-immune diet.  If you haven’t heard of it, it’s like Paleo on life hates you mode.  And I’m not at all dramatic, so there!  The auto-immune diet is designed to do a lot for ones body, helps with swelling issues and tons more.  He seems to think it will help with my cataplexy.  Medications don’t do it, so here we go with this.

Honestly, at this point I have not been loyal to it.  I’ll be honest.  I’m not giving up coffee and flavored creamer.  Just not gonna do it.  Have been doing better though.  For the last two weeks I’ve stuck very well to the paleo, with the above being my exception.  Well, almost the only exception.  LOL.

Regardless, here is this amazing recipe.  It’s not your Momma’s tuna, but it is fabulously yummy!  I was dying for tuna and the mayo being outlawed from paleo I started trying some of the recipes from Pinterest but was not digging the flavor.  It was missing something.  So I played and modified.  Here goes!

Not Your Momma’s Tuna Recipe

  • 1 can Tuna
  • ½ avocado
  • 3 TBSP lemon juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp fajita seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 TBSP Diced celery
  • 1 TBSP diced green onion (red would be great too)
  • 1 TBSP diced sweet pepper
  1. Drain tuna.  Add avocado and mix.
  2. Add seasoning and vinegar, stir.  Whip together, don’t smash at this point!
  3. Mix in the remaining ingredients.
  4. You can serve or eat it however you’d like it, but I really enjoyed it on celery!

If you are looking for some other recipes that are amazingly healthy and yummy, check out my recipe for pitas!  They aren’t paleo, they are super delicious!  You could eat them without the pitas and they’d totally be paleo, or at least I think chick peas are paleo. lol.

Fish Tacos & a #DollopOfDaisy

FishTacosAndDaisySourCreamI have to say, the tacos were great but the Daisy Sour Cream made it awesome!  I love the new squeeze bottles!  So much easier to put it on so that you get just the right amount of sour cream in each bite!  I’m pretty stoked!  I love when new ‘genius’ ways come about and making my food pretty without me having to make a big mess!  I do need to disclose that I got to try the Daisy Squeeze Sour Cream for free as part of a promotion, but my opinions of Daisy Sour Cream are true and honest.  I’ve loved them forever!

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp ground coriander
