When it comes to meal prep I am always looking for quick and easy meals that are packed with protein but are low in fat and calories. Solid white albacore tuna is a great way to get a lot of protein with low calories, fat and carbs. This meal prep included some small plastic containers which I purchased at a local party supply store. You might find these in the area where they sell the sternos and other food prep items.

For this meal prep lunch you will need:

? Walden Farms Ranch Mayo

? Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb Seasoning

? Large size solid white albacore tuna cans

? White Onion finely chopped

? Celery finely chopped

? Avacado

First you will start out with a medium size bowl and chop up your celery and onion. I used 3 stalks of celery and about 1/4 of a white onion. Toss those into the bowl and then I added 2 tbsp of the Walden Farms Mayo. Walden Farms condiments are great because they are zero calories, zero fat, zero carbs and zero sugar. I buy them at a few places in NJ like Fairway Market and Shop Rite but you can also order online here if you don’t have them available near you.

For 3 containers I used 2 large cans of albacore tuna. So I split the two cans evenly for all 3 containers. Mash up the tuna so that it is broken up a bit and easier to mix.

Use all of the celery, onion and mayo from your bowl and evenly place in each container. Then mix it up so that you get good flavor throughout the tuna. After it is mixed you can lightly sprinkle your Mrs. Dash onto the top and mix through as well. Add as much flavor as you like but you won’t need too much.

This will show you all the delicious onions and celery in the bowl which add some nice flavor and also some more nutrition to your meal.

When all is mixed up you will be left with this in your containers and you are now ready to take 1 avacado and cube it up by cutting down the middle and across. Each container will have 1/3 of an avocado – a good, healthy fat!

Now you can see that you can just place your lids on top and you are ready to place in the fridge and eat when you are ready. I love the nice mix of the tuna with the avocado. This is very high in protein, low in carbs and a good addition of healthy fats on top.
