No Fuss Tuna Salad on Romaine Leaves

Yesterday, I decided to run around my neighborhood for some mental clarity and to tire myself out since it has been harder and harder to fall asleep at night. Mostly the fault of Orange is the New Black, but still. ┬áIt was a good run considering I don’t run often anymore, and I hate/love the feeling. I want to run more though, and I am trying to convince myself that getting up early is not the worst thing in the world. I can’t tell if it is true that cardio wires you and makes it harder to fall asleep. Stay tuned. I feel like my bones are made from metal lately, because I wake up feeling like I am 90 years old. This was the perfect, refreshing light dinner and you can easily make itt in a tupperware container for lunch and assemble on romaine or collard leaves.

Ingredients

1/2 cup tuna in water

2 tablespoons nonfat greek yogurt

2 tsp or less, freshly ground black pepper, depending on your taste

1 tsp sriracha or hot sauce

1/4 cup chopped cucumbers

1/8 cup olives, optional

2 tsp lemon juice

2 large romaine leaves, washed or 2 large collard leaves

Directions

Mix the everything together except romaine/collard and assemble on the leaves.

Green Superfood Smoothie

A go to combination of mine. The pineapple adds all the sweetness you need and you will have boundless energy after blending. I am a self professed coffee addict, there is nothing like coffee that gets my gears running after a night of restless sleep, but this green smoothie competes with how much it wakes me up.

Ingredients

2 cups spinach, baby leaves, or 1 cup frozen spinach, lightly thawed

2 tablespoons of chia gel (chia seeds soaked in water or coconut water for several hours, good to have on hand in the fridge, and lasts a week!)

3 pineapple rings, or 1 cup pineapple chunks

1/2 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh

1 teaspoon spirulina

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

2 tablespoons goji berries

Directions

Blend well and enjoy!
