With Christmas and New Year’s now behind us, this is about the time that people start to forget about their resolutions for 2014. But, sticking to them can be easy when you have the right tools. So this week I have chosen a recipe that is not only good for you, but is loaded with protein for all the extra exercise that you are going to be doing. You can substitute the tuna for canned chicken breast if you are not a big fan of seafood. So from my kitchen to yours: make, eat, and enjoy!

“Tasty Tuna Salad”

What you need-

2 cans tuna (in water)

1/4 – 1/3 cup Mayo

3 radishes, chopped

1/4 cup chopped green olives

1/4 cup chopped pickles (optional)

1/3 cup chopped green onion

4 stalks celery

4 bell peppers (any color)

In a large bowl add the drained tuna and mayo. Mix until all tuna fish is covered. Add chopped radishes, olives, onion, and celery. Take the 4 bell peppers (I like to use all different colored ones) and cut the tops off of them. We are going to use them as bowls for our tuna salad. Make sure to clean out the inside, getting all seeds out. With a large spoon scoop the tuna salad into the bell peppers. Cottage cheese and deviled eggs are great side dishes for this one. *Recipe courtesy of Elyse*

*Here’s a helpful hint about cooking with celery: you can eat the celery leaves. I am not a big fan of the outer darker leaves, but the inner leaves are really yummy and they make for a better presentation when you chop them up into a dish. So give it a try with this recipe!
