Through the Paleo diet/lifestyle and the Whole30 my family, friends and I are becoming healthier! We are getting to our healthy weights, moving more, sleeping better and have better energy. We are suffering fewer mild medical issues and are just overall feeling better every day!

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen these days. We cook and enjoy a lot of great food that's both tasty and healthy. I hope you'll find some recipes here that you'll enjoy!

Fancy Tuna Salad

I was looking for a new tuna salad recipe to try. I make this one from Well Fed often, but I needed a change. I was inspired by this recipe over at, but I only had the shorter "pickling"cucumbers from the farmers market. Also, I wanted to use my homemade mayo in place of yogurt.  I left out the soy & wasabi and added some dry mustard.  Here's my recipe:

1 4oz can of Sustainable Seas Albacore Tuna (any wild-caught tuna will work)
1 fresh carrot, julienned
1-2 Tbsp of homemade paleo mayo (or use your favorite recipe)
1 tsp of lemon juice (I just juiced 1/3 of a large lemon)
salt & pepper, a few shakes each
1/2 tsp of dry ground mustard
1-2 cucumbers, sliced long way for rolling, or short way for "sandwiches"

Mix all of the ingredients (minus the cucumber) together in a bowl. I find that it helps to use a fork to break up the tuna. Then, either top your little cucumber circles with a spoonful of the tuna salad or roll up your cucumber strips. You can make open-faced "sandwiches" or top with another cucumber slice. This recipe is great for a hot summer day.
