Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Tuna is a great healthy lunch option, even when you’re in a hurry. Mix in your favorite vegetables, some light mayonnaise, and wrap it in lettuce for a low calorie, protein packed lunch. Tuna Lettuce Wraps win every single time!

Sometimes lunch rolls around and I find myself so hungry I basically just eat whatever I can find!  I don’t know where the mindset of healthy eating taking too much time came from, but this recipe definitely change that.

Health Benefits of Tuna

Not a tuna fan? Maybe I can change your mind. Aside from being delicious, there are so many different health benefits to tuna. Here are just a few:

  • Heart friendly – TONS of omega 3’s! Use light ingredients like Miracle Whip and fresh lemon juice to make this even more healthy.
  • Lowers blood pressure – Rich in potassium
  • Improves the immune system – Rich in zinc and Vitamin C
  • Protein packed – One serving of tuna can have 20+ grams of protein! 

Tuna Wrap vs Tuna Sandwich

We’d have tuna sandwiches all the time growing up and they are still one of my favorite lunchtime foods.

I’ve found over the years that packing a lunch with a tuna sandwich was never a good idea. By the time lunch rolled around the bread was soggy and sandwich had lost its freshness.

Taking a few lettuce leaves to use as a wrap for my tuna has proven to work great! It’s also a great way to skip out on some calories and get a good serving of vegetables into your diet.

If you’re not a lettuce wrap fan, you can definitely try this recipe on your favorite bread or toast. Try a good whole wheat bread to keep it light and low fat.
