Have you tried this Keto Tuna Salad Wrap yet? It's tunalicious! Yeah, that's not a word...yet.
I have always loved Tuna salad. Growing up, it was a staple in our home, and my mom would add it to anything. I'm so glad that living a keto lifestyle doesn't mean having to give up some of my favorite meals.
As for mayo, I have always hated it. I would eat it occasionally, but for the most part, I couldn't even stand to look at it. It has been crazy how much my taste buds have changed over the last three weeks. I find myself eating things with a cleaner pallet. I think one of the main reasons this happens is because we eat so much sugar (without even realizing it) that we are desensitized to natural sugars and all foods begin to taste sort of bland. It's also possible that because we so rarely eat when we are hungry that we don't notice how wonderful food tastes.
Keto Tuna Salad Wrap Recipe:
Have you ever noticed how when you take the first few bites of a portion of food it tastes so good, but after a while, it's like you can't even taste it? If so, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
Needless to say, I have fallen in love with mayo. I'm not saying I could eat it with a spoon, but it tastes so different to me now.
Note: Before starting keto (and even during my first few months) I would not eat tuna in oil, and I didn't even realize that the whole "fats are bad" stigma was in my head until I was shopping for tuna a few weeks ago. I decided to get over myself and purchase tuna in oil instead of tuna in water, and I admit it's still hard wrapping my head around the taste. While it's not my favorite, I have decided to help myself out and start buying it in oil now, but I do have to add a little extra mayo to it. Just something to think about if you are trying to add more fat to your diet. Just pay attention to the kind of oil they use.
I don't know about you, but I hate getting my hands dirty when I'm cooking. When I was working as a Pampered Chef consultant we started selling these little can colanders. They are great for straining all cans but I used them for tuna more than anything.
