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!

My Day at Medieval Times

This is a sponsored post.

If you have never been to Medieval Times, just know that it can be a great time for families or just a night out with your friends.  For me it was a combination of both, 5 adults and one 5 year old made their way to our local Medieval Times to enjoy the show and the food.

Upon entry into the Medieval Castle you are greeted with people dressed in Medieval gear, the royal Renaissance themed clothing, the swords the boots the capes, crowns and thrones, they are all there.  If you enjoy taking pictures there are plenty of photo ops throughout the space.  After you get your tickets and assigned to an area (more about that later) and given your crowns, you are able to take a group photo with the King of the evening.  Medieval Times staff will have your photo available for purchase before you leave the show.

After your Royal Photo is taken, you are moved into a staging area where there is a bar (for the adults) gift shops and further props for photos.  The props include thrones for you to capture your royal image as well as suits of armor on display.  There are also ancient maps and other images on the walls for your picture taking enjoyment.

Once the doors are opened, you are then escorted to your designated area within the arena.  The areas are color coded and you have the opportunity to cheer for the knight corresponding to your color.  The knights compete and have jousting events.  There is also an opportunity to see a beautiful display of horses and a trained eagle that flies around the arena.

During the performance you are served food, chicken, potatoes and corn as well as soft drinks and dessert.  One of my guest is a vegetarian and there was no issue with providing her a vegetarian selection.  Desert was ice cream with a caramel topping.  A decent meal to accompany the entertainment.

The show was great for people of all ages.  There was even a time during the performance that people were able to have the queen make announcements such as birthdays.  So it can be a great event to celebrate a child or other family members birthday.
