Tuna Salad Pita Pocket

As I was going over my eats from yesterday in my head today, I realized that vegetables weren’t the only thing lacking… protein was practically non-existent as well.

Enter: canned tuna!

Canned Tuna

This salty (and stanky!) lil’ fish is packed with flavor and seemed like the perfect way to incorporate a filling and lean protein source into my lunch.

I made an easy tuna salad by adding light mayo, relish, mustard and red onion to the tuna.

I scooped the tuna salad into a whole wheat pita and added a couple handfuls of spinach and several slices of a fresh plum tomato.
