This lentil tuna salad was one of the salads in my clean eats challenge guide that I recently held with clients and friends. The clean eats challenge was all about crowding out the bad and focusing on eating whole foods.
My clients are learning that when you shift your mindset on what you can have, you start to automatically crowd out the bad. Let’s continue to crowd out the unhealthy and create healthier eating habits. And you can start with this salad. Recipe below.
