I don't know about you, but I have a hard time getting enough fish in my diet. I wondered what it would look like to get the best parts about Tuna Salad (the creaminess, crunchiness, flavor) without hurting my body in the process. Enter the Low Carb, Collagen-Infused Tuna Salad!

Crunchy Collagen Tuna Salad (High Protein, High Aminos, Low-Carb, Low Sugar)

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time getting enough fish in my diet. I know that Omega 3’s are important, I’ve heard of all the health benefits of eating it 3-4 times a week, but still, I’m afraid to purchase it fresh, for fear of it going bad or stinking up my kitchen.

That doesn’t mean I shouldn’t keep trying, BUT because necessity is often the mother of invention I decided to play around with a recipe around a shelf-stable canned fish. Traditionally Tuna Salad is made with high fatty-toxic-oil mayo and served between 2 GINORMO pieces of low-nutrient bread and if you are having a ‘melt’ you can add a couple hundred calories of cheese to that.

Enter the Low Carb, Collagen-Infused Tuna Salad! Canned Tuna is easy to keep in the pantry for those days you just #canteven! And THIS version is loaded with Collagen (aids in strengthening hair, skin, nails, joints, gut, and tendons), crunchy veggies and minerals like Vitamins B-12 (aids in brain and nerve function), Magnesium (helps alleviate muscle cramps), Iron (plays a vital role in immune system function, treating anemia, boosting hemoglobin)! Each serving is only 6.8g of net carbs! And when you pair it with fiber in a veggie like zucchini or a cauliflower cracker and the 35g of protein from the tuna & collagen this salad should keep you full and satiated!! Yay for FEELING FULL!

And bonus: because tuna is a lighter protein, this is the perfect workday lunch that won’t leave you in a food coma!
