Curried Tuna in a Jar


2012/03/30 by nikkiledford

Curry is wonderful. It’s so exotic and exciting! It makes any dish instantly more awesome. Like tuna salad.

I know what you’re thinking… “but Nikki, tuna salad is already so exciting! How could you possibly make it better than it already is?” Answer: You guessed it, Curry Powder! You’re so smart. You deserve a big helping of Curried Tuna Salad.

This particular recipe is my personal answer to making a healthy Paleo lunch-on-the-go. I work in a kitchen and there is lots of food available food ALL. DAY. LONG. In order to not become obese, I have to make it a rule to not eat while at work. Which means I bring my own food to eat. Yes, I give up free, abundant food everyday so that I don’t go to crazy snacking land.
