Tuna salad with boiled potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, onions, mayonnaise, and salt
The recipe is as follows:
- Boil the potatoes 25-30 minutes or until fork-tender, peel off outside layer of skin.
- Drain potatoes and let them cool.
- Slice eggs in half and boil for 10-12 minutes before peeling off-shell. Cut egg into halves again after cooling down the eggs.
- Chop onions into small pieces before adding them to a bowl with mayonnaise, salt, and egg halves–whisk together until even consistency of ingredients is achieved.
- Add tuna salad to a bowl containing mayonnaise mixture and combine excluding anything that’s not mixed in yet–add boiled potatoes on top of the mixture before covering with plastic wrap or tight lid.
- Store in refrigerator until ready to eat…enjoy! (Tuna salad can be used as a spread for sandwiches if desired)
Healthy and full of flavor
This recipe is great because it’s healthy and full of flavor! I enjoy eating this meal because the ingredients go well together. It also gives me lots of energy which allows me to stay active throughout each day; I recommend this recipe for anyone who wants to maintain a healthy lifestyle or follow a low-calorie diet plan. The only downside with this menu item is that there isn’t anything big enough to snack on afterward since tuna salad alone won’t fully satisfy your appetite, so you may want something else to eat later or try some other nutritious ingredients such as apple slices or grapes.
“Tuna is a complete source of protein which can help build muscle.” I like this quote because it gives the reader an example of how something as simple as tuna (with additional ingredients) can be healthy. This is important because there are many different types of healthy food that people aren’t sure about. People who read that they should eat more tuna may be persuaded to do so if they know why – specifically, it’s good for building muscle. This is also helpful to give examples of other types of food, such as the sandwiches listed above.
“Eating all three parts of lunch can help you feel full and more satisfied.” This statement is beneficial to share with readers because it shows that having a healthy and sufficient lunch has many benefits, such as feeling full. The “all three parts” part helps emphasize this point by stating that the meal should consist of protein, carbohydrates, and vegetables at least – not just any one thing.
Tuna is great for muscle development
This source also indicates that tuna is great for muscle development, which is probably why it’s so good for athletes who need to maintain their strength levels. Overall, this article was easy to follow and had relevant information about low-calorie meals offered in simple terms. It was helpful to me because I wanted advice on what to eat as a healthy student-athlete.
There you have it! It’s as easy as that to make this low-calorie meal idea which is delicious and filling. If you’re hungry or perhaps craving something else to eat, try some apple slices or some grapes since they are healthy snacks that provide you with some energy.

Curry Scrambled Eggs with Potatoes and Peas
I’m going to share with you my favorite breakfast dish I like to make when I’m in a hurry. If you’re not familiar with curry, it’s an Indian dish that can be made with any meat or vegetables.

- 1/2 cup peas
- 1/2 cup diced potatoes
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon curry powder, or more if desired

In a small pan, cook the potatoes and peas until they become tender. In a different pan, fry eggs and cook to your liking. Add butter and curry powder to the pot with potatoes and peas. Stir well and serve immediately. You can garnish with fresh herbs if desired.
Peas are an excellent source of Folate, thiamin, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, and vitamin A.
The perfect combination of these two dishes gives you lots of nutrients without adding much to your daily caloric intake.

It’s easy to prepare this recipe because you don’t have to peel the spinach leaves off their stems. All you need to do is wash them thoroughly and drain them. Then sauté them gently in olive oil with some garlic and lemon juice. The result will be delicious.
To prepare, place washed and drained spinach leaves on a plate and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and add a pinch of salt. Toss the leaves around, so they get coated with oil. Next, cut up about 1/3 pound of garlic cloves and mince them finely. Slice 2 lemons in thin rounds. Squeeze the juice from one of the lemons and combine it with the minced garlic. Drizzle lemon juice and garlic over the spinach and toss gently. Serve immediately.

Lemon is a great cleanser. It helps boost metabolism by increasing the activity of enzymes and liver function. It also aids digestion by breaking down fats and carbohydrates.
