No Fuss Lunch in a Rush

Keeping with this week’s theme of go-to meals that can be prepared in a rush…here is one of my favorite simple lunch ideas.


Tuna fish (from a can) mixed with dijon mustard, hardboiled egg, avocado, salt and pepper. It’s quick, simple and can be made with items usually found in the fridge/pantry.

I usually eat mine on top of a bed of lettuce with sunflower seeds sprinkled on top for some crunch, but it can just as easily be made into a sandwich or eaten straight out of the bowl. The dijon adds a little zing and the avocado gives it creaminess instead of having to add mayo.


I use light tuna packed in water, so if it seems a little dry I pour a little bit of olive oil over the top when I’m done.

    I remember the guy who taught the honors class in Econ saying “we don’t recycle because recycling kills trees and we like trees.” The world creates a lot of opportunities for irony and there’s no need to force it.
