Easy High Protein Lunch

So it is no secret that in 2016 I had weight loss surgery.  And while I am still not at my goal weight, I have had to make a lifetime of adjustments to what and how I eat.  Most weigh loss doctors promote a high protein, low carb, low calorie diet.  So here is a quick and simple and filling lunch that you can make in less than 5 minutes.

Actually, there are only 2 ingredients.  How you dress it up is up to you.

Starkist Tuna Creations (18g of protein)

Boiled Egg (6g of protein)

I empty the Tuna Creation packet (I like Lemon Pepper and Spicy Thai the best).  Then I peel my eggs (normally I have 2) and slice them.  I like presentation, so I make it look pretty.  There is actually nothing else for you to do.

However I am hypertensive and I try to stay away from salt.  So what I do is experiment with spices.  When it comes to this particular lunch the tuna is packed with flavor, so I typically add paprika (for a hint of heat) and dried minced onion for a little crunch and a punch of flavor.  The minced onion also keeps the overpowering smell of onion at bay if you are making this at work for lunch.

 

Whatever flavor you like, just experiment with the flavors and see how you create a taste to your liking.

This simple recipe can also be eaten over a salad or with raw fresh veggies on the side.  It is very filling and more than anything else very flavorful.  I do not add mayo, relish or anything that I would add to a tuna salad.  Plain, simple easy and healthy.

 

If you try this recipe out let me know how you make yours.

Until Next Time!

The Captain comes to Chicago

Recently I was able to hang out with Captain Morgan compliments of #chicagogrammers.  It was wonderful fall weather at Joy District and the event was held on their beautiful rooftop.  There was good music, great drinks and an amazing atmosphere.  The purpose of the event was to sample the new Captain Morgan fall flavor Apple Smash.  It was a good time with some really, really good drinks.

My favorite drink of the night was the Captain Morgan Apple Smash and Ginger ale.  The combination of the apple and ginger made for a tasty cocktail and a great choice for a fall adult beverage.  Below are some of the other drinks the mixologist prepared for the event.

One of my favorite things about the drinks were that they were served in little plastic green apples, a great way to introduce the concept while providing an visually appealing way to enjoy your cocktail.

What would a rooftop party be without food, music, a photo booth and a visit by the Captain himself?

IMG-2117So if you are looking for a way to spice up your fall event or holiday party, pick up some Captain Morgan Apple Smash.  Try it out with some of your favorite combinations, or serve it with some ginger ale for a refreshing, tasty and enjoyable beverage.

Be Blessed, Be Fabulous!
