I'm really hoping that between the state of my knee and stomach/throat/ears that I'm able to return to the gym on Sunday, but I'm really going to have to play it by ear. Though the huge scab on my knee is getting a lot better, the joint is achey and sore if I walk at more than a gentle amble and/or more than 15-20s or so. I have been taking NSAIDs, keeping off it as much as possible and not using the stairs wherever possible so I'm hoping that will have helped, but we'll just have to see.
Simple tuna salad (serves 1; 243kcals, 37.7g protein, 15.3g carbs, 3.4g fat, 1.8 fruit and veg):-
- 10g red onion
- 35g sweetcorn (tinned or defrosted from frozen)
- 90g iceberg lettuce
- 130g (1 tin) cooked, tinned tuna (drained)
- 1 large spoonful (55g) mayonnaise (Hellman's Extra Light - yes it's heavily processed)
Finely chop the red onion.
Add the sweetcorn.
And the tuna.
Then the mayonnaise and some seasoning.
Mix that lot together. It's easier to get the tuna and little ingredients covered with the seasoned mayonnaise before you add the lettuce.
Finally add the lettuce. If you're not mixing in a large bowl, add about a third at a time in between mixing.
Stir the lettuce in with the tuna mix and serve with a sprinkle of tarragon and black pepper over the top.
Simple, quick, tasty and easy on a dodgy belly. The red onion keeps it fresh and the small amount isn't overpowering and shouldn't leave you with much of an aftertaste.
