This tuna fish recipe is one of our easy healthy recipes.

The recipe yields three servings.

Simply increase or decrease the ingredients if more or fewer servings are required

The food counts listed are for one serving only. If not using immediately, refrigerate the other two servings.

Serve the tuna with green salad vegetables, such as fresh lettuce, rocket, watercress, baby spinach, cucumber, or celery. That makes a full meal.

Because it's not significantly low in carbs for weight loss, you may want to save it until your cheat day.

[Since this tuna recipe contains beans and vinegar, it is not suitable for those who are following our Paleo diet, unless you are allowing yourself a once weekly cheat day.]
