Feta cheese is a great source of protein and calcium, which helps muscle contraction. Choose the lowest fat feta cheese that you can find. Transform the regular Tuna dish into a meal that’s packed with protein, healthy fats, and slow burning carbs.
- 1 can of tuna, drained
- 1/3 cup feta cheese
- 3-4 cherry tomatoes
- 5-8 olives “optional”
- 1 cup whole wheat pasta
- Olive oil, approximately 1 tbsp drizzled over your pasta
- Optional spices and flavours (a pinch): basil, oregano, thyme, lemon, or balsamic vinegar
Prepare the pasta according to the package directions, then add the feta cheese and canned tuna. Stir until the feta cheese is slightly melted, then add the cherry tomatoes, olives, and drizzle with some olive oil for healthy fats. Add any desired spices or healthy condiments like lemon or balsamic vinegar. Serve immediately.
