Tuna on Cucumber "Toast"

I eat enough grilled chicken and eggs to sustain an entire chicken farm (or so it feels like it) and sometimes I get a bit bored. So this is my new favorite 250 calorie easy and filling snack (or meal). With lots of protein AND a fiber boost from a bunch of celery and cucumbers, it's pretty much perfect. 

What you need: 
  • 1 can (drained) of solid white albacore tuna (or whatever kind you like)
  • 1 tbsp mayo or avocado or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (about two stalks) celery diced
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cucumber sliced

What you do:
  1. Mix all ingredients together (except the cucumbers)
  2. Top cucumbers with tuna mix
  3. Eat!

Clean eating on the go...

More often than I would like, I have to eat a meal or two in the car on my way to personal training clients, classes or kid activities. Sometimes I have to rely on convenience foods like protein bars/shakes or jerky but I try my hardest to bake or grill some extra protein that I can put on ice in a lunch bag and take with me. This is my lunch today. Sure, it's a bit strange to see someone eating a piece of grilled chicken with her hands at a stoplight, BUT I think it's worth it...and totally easy!
