What are your go to meals?
You know…one of those meals that you can make with your eyes closed and one hand tied behind your back. What do you make when you have no time and no inspiration?
This is one of those recipes for me. In fact, I feel weird about sharing it as a recipe, because it’s ‘oh so very simple…’
But, I love this tuna salad so much that I can’t imagine not sharing it with you! That’s how much I care about all of you. 
At least once a week I’m running late and don’t have leftovers prepped to take to work and this is what ends up in my lunch bag. This is one of the many ways that I stay sane and keep my focus on AIP.  
With salads like this there are no more excuses. 5 minutes in the grocery store and 5 minutes back in your kitchen and a healthy & satisfying lunch is ready to be enjoyed. 

  Time to pack lunch…
