Tuna Fish Recipe

This tuna fish recipe is easy to make as well as delicious. The recipe yields three servings.

Simply increase the ingredients if more servings are required

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

(Since this tuna recipe contains beans and vinegar, it is not suitable for those who are following a true Paleolithic diet.)

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

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