Tuna salads are usually very traditional, mixed with lots of parsley, onions and a whole lot of mayonnaise and if you know whats good for you, this really doesn’t fit into that category. Apart from the mayonnaise which adds a lot of extra fat and unneeded calories to your salad, you may eventually get bored of having the same boring ingredients, so always try something new and more colourful!
I made this salad the night before we were going on vacation, our fridge was empty and there was nothing fresh in the house, i needed a quick and cheap fix which i can easily mix up after a quick trip to the grocery store, only a few ingredients chopped up and mixed in a bowl and there you have it!

Ingredients:
Yellow Pepper
Baby spinach
Balsamic vinegar
Carrot
Cucumber
100 gr tuna in water
Cayenne pepper

Salmon and carrot omelet

13 Jul

The great things about omelets is that they hardly need any preparation, on those lazy days where you really dont have time or energy to cook a proper meal but still want something that will keep you full and give you energy, go for omelets. They are brilliant for people like me (and the rest of the world I think) who like versatility in their meals, you can have an omelet everyday and still not get bored because of the never ending list of ingredients you can add to it!

This turned out to be one of my favourate combinations, it also looks very pretty and ORANGE, and when there’s colour in your dish its ALWAYS a bonus!

Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 carrots grated
Slice smoked salmon
30g light Philadelphia cheese
1 slice whole wheat toast
Capers
Baby spinach
1 teaspoon olive oil

Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the grated carrots followed by the two eggs. When cooked flip and lower the heat.

Place on a plate and sprinkle chopped salmon pieces and philadelphia
