Instant Main Course: Tuna & White Bean Salad

Canned light tuna and white (cannellini) beans make for a healthy, instant main course (or hearty snack). The beans are an excellent source of soluble fiber and protein and the tuna is also and excellent protein source as well as a contributing source of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.

Herbs & Spices: Dill, Cayenne Pepper, and Turmeric were blended in with the dish to give it extra flavor and an added nutrition boost.

Small pieces of low-fat multi-grain chips were sprinkled on top to add some crunch to the dish. To keep sodium low, herbs and spices were used to enhance flavor without adding salt and the canned beans were rinsed before use.

Make It a Meal: To make it an easy meal, I paired the dish with a bowl of edamame,  a glass of skim milk, and fresh orange slices.
