This simple tuna salad recipe is easy to make and really low in calories. Tuna is full of lean protein, so although this recipe seems light, it has everything you need for balanced lunch. You can pair this salad with whole grain crackers if you would like, but remember to account for the calories.

All you need is two celery sticks chopped (1) calories, one medium carrot sliced (25) calories, 2 cups of romaine lettuce (16) calories, 3 ounces of tuna (109) calories, and 2 tablespoons yellow mustard (7) calories. Total 158 calories.

Take three ounces of cooked tuna fish and put it into a salad bowl. If you are using canned tuna, make sure you drain it and measure the tuna out to three ounces. Chop two celery sticks into small bite sized pieces and discard the ends, add the chopped celery to the bowl with the tuna. Chop a medium carrot into thin slices, discarding the ends. Add the carrots to the salad bowl. Chop two cups of romaine lettuce into small pieces and add it to the salad bowl. Add two tablespoons of yellow mustard to the salad bowl and mix all the ingredients well together. Enjoy.
