Tuna Kefir Salad (high protein)

Lately, Tuna Kefir Salad has been frequenting my dinner option. I’ve posted about it before in my WIAW and Instagram multiple times but I thought I’d share exactly what it is I put into it. This is a super quick, easy, and filling salad with a big pow of protein!

I’ve been eating a lot more veggies lately and I love it. I’ve been going through two bags of spring mix and spinach in only a couple of days! I feel that when I eat more veggies throughout the day, I feel better and lighter and end up eating less calories than I would otherwise. It’s a win-win!

Okay but truthfully, my salad never looks all pretty in a small plate like this. I usually make it in a medium-large mixing bowl all mixed up together and eat it with a Wasa slice for a crunch. Perfection.

Gotta love a salad that provides ~260 calories and a whopping 36.6 grams of protein!

    Interesting, I’ll have to try putting Kefir yogurt on salad. I’ve never had yogurt on salad before. I like tuna but quite honestly, I’ve never put in a salad. I’ll try that as well.
