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.  It 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.


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


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



Happy last week of July! Where does time go? Seriously?
