The Yummiest Tuna Salad

I love tuna!

I always have a few cans of Wild Caught tuna at home because its super easy to whip up a great meal with it.
I often have it for lunch, not really for dinner, but I really enjoy it.

How To Buy Your Tuna

My one tip with tuna is to buy it wild caught and in water not oil.

There is one tuna recipe in my BeFit Moms Meal Plan Program that is to die for. It’s called Mexican Tuna and I normally have it over a Brown Rice English Muffin and it is simply spectacular and it takes less than 5 minutes to whip up.

That is what I love about my BeFit Moms Fat Loss Meal Plans, the meals are super quick and easy to make and they are all so yummy that you never feel like you are “dieting”, but you still lose weight and get leaner.

My other favorite tuna is this tuna salad that I often make to go on the boat or to the beach.
It’s literally my go to for lunch on the beach, because like I said, I always have a few cans of tuna at home and the rest of the ingredients are staples from My Grocery Lists.

Did you print those out yet?

I organized for you a Grocery List for the Pantry, Fridge and Freezer and if you print those out and have them in your kitchen, it will be super easy to make any quick healthy meal. Actually, you can make any of my recipes (which are all organized for you on My Pinterest Page).

What do you normally eat when you go to the beach?

Most people eat sandwiches, right?

But I don’t like to eat sandwiches, actually, my family never eats sandwiches. Well, once in a while, the boys do but I try not to eat bread, unless its gluten-free.

Most people that eat a lot of bread of BLOATING PROBLEMS.

Do you have bloating problems?

Do you feel like you can’t get rid of the BELLY FAT?

If you feel this way, there are some foods that if you eliminate them from your diet, will help you tremendously. You will lose the bloat, and you will decrease inflammation so that you can burn fat more effectively, which basically means, you will lose weight FASTER and EASIER.

The reason is because these foods though some may think are healthy or not “so bad”, are actually very inflammatory.

Inflammation in the digestive track makes it incredibly hard if not impossible to burn fat. So in order to be able to burn fat so you can lose weight effectively, its crucial that you take these foods out of your diet.

This is soimportant and makes such a huge impact on your results that I decided to compile these foods into a PDF for you.  So go to the following link where you can download this information for free.I also added alist of 5 Foods that are NECESSARY for you to include in your diet if you want to LOSE WEIGHT and GET TONED. Foods that you should eat daily!

If you want some more tips on how to lose weight, read this awesome and super informative post on HOW TO MANAGE YOUR CALORIES TO LOSE WEIGHT.

By the way, before I give you the recipe, I just want to give you some tips that will help you if you are trying to lose weight, get leaner, get more definition, feel more energy, get healthier, and more toned.

Because it’s not just about cooking even though it’s a big part of it.

I have found that a lot of people are “STUCK” with their weight loss because they are eating some of the wrong foods.

So I have to make sure you are not eating one or more of foods on this list.  Because if you are, it can be completely SABOTAGING your results.  Yes, it can totally be true that you can be working your butt off at the gym 6 days a week, eating super healthy (as you think), but if you are eating one or more of these foods, you will NOT BE ABLE TO LOSE WEIGHT.  The reason is because these foods though some may think are healthy or not so bad, are actually very inflammatory.

Inflammation in the digestive track makes it incredibly hard if not impossible to burn fat. So in order to be able to burn fat so you can lose weight effectively, its crucial that you take these foods out of your diet.

5 Foods To Never Eat

I also took the liberty to share with you a short video of my favorite 5 ABS EXERCISES.  The ones that have gotten me ABS after having 2 kids (daughter is 15 months) and I never had them before.  Here is the link so you can download the PDF and get the VIDEO.  Start applying it right now.  Take those 5 foods out of your KITCHEN immediately!  LINK TO PDF & VIDEO

How do you fix it?

Be CONSISTENT with your PLAN and be SYSTEMIC & STRATEGIC about it.   If you do, you will be finally able to say “It’s a LIFESTYLE”.  Because when it really is a “lifestyle”, your body and life reflect it.

Does your body and life reflect it?

You probably know what to do, you just haven’t been STRATEGIC about it.  Or maybe the plan isn’t good so you haven’t been able to stick to it.   Or you haven’t found the right strategy to incorporate this into your life.  But once you do, your life will change forever.  You will live in a “HAPPY PLACE”.  You will finally achieve your goals, and you will be able to LIVE THERE, forever……. no more yo-yoing!

I talk to you about my BeFit Moms Meal Plan all the time.  The reason I do so is because I know how important it is to have a PLAN, a GOOD plan.  I know that if I can get you to FOLLOW “My Plan” for a long enough time……  and you become SYSTEMIC about it, then you will learn how to do it yourself.  You will be in the habit of doing it and you will finally be able to be CONSISTENT.  

And heck, you know whats going to happen in the meantime?

You will have gotten to where you wan to be.  Without “Dieting”, without “Overexercising”, without a new “Gadget” or “Diet”, or “Massage” or “Class”.

Here is what you will get in the BeFit Moms Meal Plan:

  • Weekly Meal Plans (Breakfast, Mid-Morning Snack, Lunch, Mid-Afternoon Snack, Dinner).
  • Recipes to all the meals.
  • Tons of different snacks so you have options to choose from.
  • Shopping Lists (divided and organized by sections to speed your time at the store).
  • Weight Training Workouts.
  • Cardio Workouts.

Here is what you will get from the BeFit Moms Meal Plan:

  • You will see what a good meal plan looks like.
  • You will learn what foods are optimal for fat burning.
  • You will learn to strategize how you cook.
  • You will actually enjoy what you eat and not feel like your “dieting”.
  • Your kids and husband will get healthier.
  • Your family will enjoy the meals.
  • You will get in the habit of planning and cooking.
  • You will save time.
  • You will get results.
  • You will maintain your results.

It’s life changing!

I started doing this years ago and its how I went from feeling like I was Dieting all the time and not able to maintain that level of commitment and not seeing great results.  To being in the best shape of my life, not feeling like I’m ever dieting, enjoying every meal, not feeling deprived and loving it.

I’m serious, it’s life changing.  And though you may know what to do, its different following a plan and having the accountability.  So I hope you splurge on yourself and your family and try it for a few months.  You’re going to love it. Here is the link to get your first set of MEAL PLANS.

The Yummiest Tuna Salad

  • Author: Michelle Marie Fit


  • 2 cans of wild caught tuna in water, drained
  • ½ cup chopped red/green peppers, onions and tomatoes (sometimes I buy the pre-chopped),
  • but you can chop them yourself.
  • ½ cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp dried cranberries or ¼ cup chopped green apple
  • ¼ cup toasted sliced almonds or chopped walnuts


  1. In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients well and serve cold.


How easy is that?

If you buy a mixture (whichever you like) of pre-chopped veggies, you will literally make this salad in less than 5 minutes.

It makes a ton of servings so it usually lasts me a few days of lunches or snacks.

For a Low/No Carb meal, I either it by itself or I serve it over greens like arugula and spinach and some crunchy Romaine…. I just mix up the 3 of them and spoon the tuna over it…. Yum!

If not, I serve it sometimes over quinoa or brown rice and sometimes over brown rice English Muffin or Gluten-Free Toast.

Actually, one other way I love to have it is mixed into some brown rice past, like a cold pasta tuna salad.

I always say that PLANNING is the key to FITNESS SUCCESS.

But I know that it’s time consuming.

I also know that you are not sure exactly how to pair foods together to make them FAT BURNING.

I also know that it sucks to eat the same thing all the time and that when you do, it makes you feel like you are DIETING.

And that makes you at one point fall off the wagon and end up eating like crap for God knows how long.

That’s why its so hard to lose the weight.

I know that its hard to eat healthy CONSISTENTLY when you don’t enjoy the food because it’s bland and boring.

I know that you probably feel hungry a lot because you think NOT EATING is the solution.

Its not!
