Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Topped with yellow mustard + tomato and avo on the side. Lucky for us this recipe is made healthier (of course) & there is leftovers for snacks during the week. Recipe on the blog: link in bio

Tuna Salad:

2 cans albacore tuna in water (4-5 oz. for each can)

1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt (Fage)

1 T. light mayo

2 stalks celery, diced

2 scallions or green onion, diced

6-8 small pickles (cornichons), diced — find them here!

Ground black pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl & refrigerate at least 30 minutes before eating

Spoon tuna salad on cleaned Romaine hearts

Slice cherry tomatoes and avocado

Squeeze small amount of either yellow or dijon mustard on top.

My favorite part about this recipe is the fact that you can get the same creamy feel of a traditional tuna salad without the excess fat and calories. Also, by adding the yogurt, we get some more protein (yay for tiny victories).

Also, since there is sodium present in the pickles and mustard, it is best to not add additional table salt to this dish. Let’s all prevent the silent killer, yeah?

Leftovers Pizza

The Leftovers Pizza 🍕😈🌱

The Spoonful Of Health-leftovers-pizza

But really, this is one of the easiest things to put together for dinner, especially when you have a ton of leftovers (veggies and pesto sauce)! 🙌🏼

To Make Leftovers Pizza:

Preheat oven to 450°F

Follow directions for TJ’s whole wheat pizza dough found in a bag in the refrigerator section.

— it is crucial to let dough set to make it easier to roll out (aka easier to make a thin-crust pizza👌🏼).

Spread my homemade Creamy Pesto sauce on the dough [place 2 cups kale + 1 cup spinach + 1 clove garlic + 1/4 cup pine nuts + 1/4 cup EVOO + 1/2 cup parmesan + 1 cup nonfat plain GY in the food processor/blender to homogenize] note – I used left over pesto bc above recipe makes quite a lot!

Top pizza with lots of veggies — zoodles [zucchini & squash] • red onion • purple cabbage • cherry tomatoes • broccoli 😊

Then, sparingly top veggies with shredded mozzarella cheese.

Cook at 450°F for approx 15 – 20 minutes.

Potato Omelette

Not your average Potato Omelette for today’s brunch on this lovely Saturday! 🍳 

Inspiration from the great @rachaelsgoodeats [obvi] 


To make omelette:
Use small skillet sprayed with oil of choice (I used olive oil) • set burner to medium heat • place a handful of leftover roasted red potatoes (smash at bottom of skillet using a fork or potato masher) • cook for about one minute • top with egg whites (about 1/4 cup of egg whites or 3 eggs) • sprinkle chopped scallions on top • let omelette cook on medium for a few minutes • place the skillet into the oven (set to broil) for about 5 mins to evenly cook the top! • finish with ground black pepper & 1/3 avocado 😋
