Ingredients

  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 2 oz. (2 cups) 55 g (425 ml) baby spinach
  • 10 oz. 280 g tuna in olive oil

  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Begin by cooking the eggs. Lower them carefully into boiling water and boil for 4-8 minutes depending on whether you like them soft or hard boiled.
  2. Cool the eggs in ice-cold water for 1-2 minutes when they're done; this will make it easier to remove the shell.
  3. Place eggs, spinach, tuna and avocado on a plate. Serve with a hearty dollop of mayonnaise and perhaps a wedge of lemon. Season with salt and pepper.

Tip!

Canned tuna is a go-to pantry item when the fridge and freezer are empty. Try to choose a good quality brand, packed in olive oil rather than soybean oil, and preferably MSC certified.

    Yes, you will want to drain the excess olive oil.

    How can it be 3g carbs if a single avocado contains 13g or 17g carbs according to two different sources?

    Avocados are high in fiber, and our recipes list net carbs.

    I added up turning this into more of a mixed together salad. Was delicious just by mixing everything together.

    With the added mayo, you may not need to add any olive oil.

    the tuna alone is enough for me along with the spinach. I can't possibly eat the 2 eggs and the 1/2
    avocado also! Where can we input our information and get a customized meal plan?

    Our meal plans are designed to work for the majority of people with little customization needed. They are all very low carb, moderate protein and high fat. We recommend eating to hunger rather than specific macro numbers. Some people find they may need larger or smaller portions, but letting hunger be the guide is key.

    I discovered something I suspected all along. I am a mixer. Give me spaghetti, green beans and a salad for dinner (before keto), and I will mix them all together. I did not care for the things separately, so I put everything in a bowl and mixed it up with mayonnaise, celery, onion, etc. for a tuna salad. Then I put it over the spinach.

    Sounds great!

    The avocado adds a bit of satiating, healthy fat along with a different texture. So, consider foods that will do the same like nuts or cheese,

    Having all the different things on my plate made me feel like I was getting a feast. It took almost no time to pull together and uses things I keep in my kitchen all the time. The tuna I had was water-packed, so I added a dab of olive oil.
