Super Lazy Keto-Friendly Tuna Salad

Keto-Friendly Tuna Salad

I have a love/hate relationship with cooking. I really enjoy the fruits of my labor, and I do very well on a diet when I eat meals instead of straight snacking, but getting me to cook or prepare things ahead of time requires the planets to align just so, on a full moon, when I get a random bout of motivation.

But most of the time, my time in the kitchen is spent wandering from cupboard to fridge in a pathetic attempt to find something meal-esque. So I’ve tried to split the difference when it comes to my lazy cooking style and my need to ingest nutrients by making recipes as easy as possible.

This tuna salad is a perfect example of it. I’m almost afraid to list this as an actual “recipe” because it’s so easy. It’s one of my all-time favorites. This is a variation of the recipe my Gram used to make me after school. It was absolutely perfect on fresh, white bread.

Now that I eat mostly low-carb, I’ve had to sub the fresh, white bread out for low-carb tortillas, but it is still so worth it. Though I have Mama Lupe’s tortillas showing here, I’ve actually moved on to X-Treme Wellness High Fiber Tortillas (because I miss the 90’s and its obsession with all things X-TREME!!! but also the calories and carbs are way lower)

One note about the celery: I buy the pre-diced versions. I know, I’m the worst! My reasoning, though, is that a head of celery is too much for me to get through (since Steve is not a fan). The pre-diced container is a perfect size for my tuna salad recipes, so I’ve stopped trying to fight how first-world I am when it comes to this, and just embrace that this method saves me from wasting food.
