Regardless of whether you’re following a Whole30, Keto, Paleo, or ____ diet, tuna, chicken, and/or salmon salad is a winner!
I like making it ahead of time and tossing it into my glass bento box for a quick grab-n-go lunch. For dinner, I like to use it as a topper on a big green salad. (Can you tell I’m all about no frills and convenience??) It’s truly delicious no matter what!
Aside from it’s tastiness, tuna/chicken/salmon salad is super healthy. Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids is so important for brain and overall health; both tuna and salmon are high in omega-3s! (To learn more about the health benefits of all omega-3 fatty acids, read my prior post “Eating Enough Of This? Your Brain Health Depends On it…”)
