Weight Watchers Lunch Healthy Tuna Salad Wraps
I admit to not being a big fan of tuna in general, but on occasion, a bit of tuna salad or a tuna croquette is just what I want. This healthy tuna salad recipe makes a great choice for a tasty and low point Weight Watchers lunch idea. It's simple, fast, tasty and of course, the most important part is that it is super healthy.
Tuna is a great lean protein choice that is also affordable. I do recommend buying your canned tuna only in water and not in oil. That helps take away a ton of calories, and the flavor is so much fresher. I also get mine low sodium so it's easier to season without it getting too salty. Saltwater fish is obviously going to be a bit saltier than some meat choices, so going low sodium in water is the best choice for this healthy tuna salad recipe.
This recipe includes hard boiled egg, but that's something I would leave out if you want lower points or if you are like me and just don't care for egg much. You could also add in your tomatoes directly into the tuna salad instead of just on top. It's easy to mix and match to make this perfect for you and your taste buds. While the base of the cream in this is Greek yogurt, I do add just a small amount of Mayonnaise for taste. Without it, the mixture is just a bit too bland and dry. The added calories are negligible.
