How come I never here anything about tuna salad? If you use fat free mayo with egg whites you can get like 100grams of protein if you by the big can.

100 g of protein in a sitting is pointless.

Of course tuna salad is good.

But, unless u add fats to it, it will be low on calories, b/c a 30-40 protein gram serve of tuna + 200-500 gm of salad veggies is a not much (salad veggies are about 25-30 cals per 100 gram; tuna about 120)

My advice is to add 10-15 grams of good fats (olive, flax, macadamia oil or eggs, nuts, flaxseed or avocado) to it just so its a proper 400-500 cal meal, depending of course on ur goals and macro desired.
