Low Carb Tuna Salad for Ketogenic Diets

This low carb tuna salad is a cheap, fast and easy to make meal for a high-fat, high-protein ketogenic diet like the Vince Gironda steak and eggs diet.

It’s also very well suited as a post-workout meal because it is mixed so well, almost in liquid form.  This makes it very fast and easy to digest.

Ease and speed of digestibility are two reasons why many people like to drink a protein shake after a workout, so they can get protein to their muscles ASAP.  With this meal, you’ll be getting the same effect, but from REAL FOOD.

Alternatively, you can prepare this meal in advance and take it with you to work or on the road in a Tupperware container.

Low-Carb Tuna Salad for Ketogenic Diets

Ingredients:
2 (5oz) cans of tuna in water
1 heaping teaspoon chopped RED onions (red onions have fewer carbs than regular onions)
1 heaping teaspoon chopped jalapenos
1 heaping teaspoon mustard
1 heaping tablespoon mayonnaise

Macronutrient Profile:
Two cans of tuna will have about 40g protein, 1g fat and 0 carbs.  The mayo will give you about 20g of pure fat and you can add 1g carbs each for the red onion and jalapeno.

The total macros for the entire meal should look like this:
40g protein – 2g carbohydrate – 20g fat – 348 calories

Preparation:
Open the two cans of tuna, drain the water out and empty them into a medium bowl.

Flatten the tuna out with a fork (to make it easier to mix with the other ingredients later) and add the other ingredients to the center of the flattened tuna.

Mix the ingredients with a fork until the mayo, mustard, onions and jalapenos are evenly distributed and the mixture has a regular consistency.

Ok, your tuna salad is ready to eat (that was fast!) with a fork . . . do I have to tell you not to eat this on bread, if you’re on a ketogenic diet?

Variation:
I like to get at least 40g protein with every meal.  Women, smaller men or people who don’t do resistance training can make this with one can of tuna, which will get you only 20g of protein and half the calories and macros listed above.

All you have to do is use a level teaspoon or tablespoon of the other ingredients instead of the heaping ones I suggested you use for two cans of tuna.

 

That’s it for today, until next time, go out there and be awesome!
