Inflammation fighting tuna salad

View 83.jpeg in slide show

I hired a personal trainer last week to finally kick start my motivation.  So far it is working very well.  I love having my own personal “Jillian” to keep me on track!  One of the things that personal trainers do is assess your diet and also your caloric intake.  I eat high calorie Omega 3 foods to keep my body free from excess inflammation and I cannot waiver on that.  Having said that, I will admit that I eat alot of food and should back off some on my portion sizes.  I decided to give up some carbs today at lunch time and have a tuna salad instead of a tuna sandwich.  It was delicious and filling and I honestly didn’t even miss the bread.  The olives, tuna, avocado and olive oil are all fantastic inflammation fighters. So enjoy this meal knowing that you are doing your body a world of good!

Omega 3 Salad
4 Kalamata olives
4 large green olives
1/2 of a small avocado cut into bite sized pieces
1 1/2 cups of organic spring lettuce mix
1/2 can of Tuna or Salmon
1 baby dill pickle, diced
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar

Place the lettuce on a plate
Mix the Tuna or Salmon with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and the diced baby dill then place on top of the lettuce in a mound
Add the olives and avocado around the sides of the lettuce
Drizzle the Balsamic vinegar and olive oil over the top to season as desired.
