Lazy Girl's Guide to Quick Meals: Bumblebee Sensations

Meal prepping can be a big time saver, but it still takes time to do. There are some weeks I just don't feel like it, and other weeks where I underestimate my healthy appetite and don't prep quite enough. During these instances, I like to make sure that I have items on hand that lend themselves to quick meals. I'm not a big fan of frozen dinners or canned soups since they tend to have extremely high sodium content, so I keep things like sweet potatoes around that can be microwaved relatively quickly or deli meat to make sandwiches. One type of sandwich I love but didn't really eat for a while was tuna. 

Tuna salad typically has mayonnaise in it which by itself can be a big calorie booster (1 tablespoon has about 90 calories). More recently, I found these Bumblee tuna sensation cans (no mayo) in several different flavors that were much lower in calorie count than your typical tuna salad. Spicy thai chili is my favorite but I also really like lemon pepper. I put the entire can on top of some toasted Ezekiel bread with a sprinkle of goat cheese and I have a yummy tuna sandwich for under 350 calories. I can pair this with some fruit or rice cakes to enjoy a full and filling meal.

I hope you're enjoying a restful Sunday!
