5-Ingredient Lunch

5-Ingredient Lunch

Here’s a super quick lunch idea. Put all the ingredients in containers, then just assemble when you’re ready to eat. Also makes an easy lunch to take to work. The tuna and beans give you protein, the beans are loaded with fiber, the olive oil gives you healthy, hunger-fighting fats, and the cucumbers and the tomatoes provide vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Here’s what you need.

White beans (cannelini, white kidney beans or navy beans) – rinse and drain if using canned
English cucumber (or regular cucumber) – the English ones aren’t as watery
Grape tomatoes – slice in half or leave whole
Tuna – any kind, drained
Olive oil – (or can use Italian dressing for more flavor)

For one serving, I like to use
a half-cup of beans
1 cup grape tomatoes
1/3 of an English cucumber, coarsely chopped
2.5 ounces tuna (half of a 5-ounce can)
1 tablespoon olive oil (or 1-2 tablespoons Italian dressing)
Mix it all together and lunch is done! If you want, you can season it with coarse ground pepper.
