Healthy Lunch Option: Egg and Tuna Salad

I went on Weight Watchers after I had my third child with the intent to lose that extra baby weight.  This was one of my favorite lunches.  It’s only four points and it’s inexpensive too.  It is filling enough so you will not be tempted to raid the snack cupboards one hour later.  It’s approximately 251 calories.  To reduce the calories and the fat, take the cheese out or use low-fat cheese.

Egg and tuna salad

Here’s how I make it…

Fill the bottom of your salad bowl with lettuce.  Add one half of canned tuna, drained.  Add hard-boiled egg, sliced.  (I usually boil them the day before and keep them in the fridge).  Sprinkle with cheddar cheese (about 1/8 cup).  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Drizzle on fat free raspberry vinaigrette dressing.  I sometimes add bacon bits.

There you go–a healthy frugal lunch!
