easy lunch at work

i just made this kid-friendly tuna salad brought to you by Whole Foods Market at work today.

i brought the following ingredients:

  • 1 can of tuna
  • 2 tbsp of sunflower seeds
  • a box of raisins
  • a grated carrot
  • 2 chopped celery stalks
  • 8 oz container of low-fat cottage cheese
  • 2 tsp of sriracha.

i mixed all of these items in a big Tupperware container.

it is the perfect flavorful tuna salad, full of healthy ingredients. this will certainly last me a couple days too. i love putting the tuna salad on top of a piece of wheat toast!

all together, this lunch costs approximately $4.20 / at least two days worth = $2.10!
