Patriotic Protein Packed Pouches
I don't know about you folks, but I am always looking for something new to take in my lunchbox for either my meal or a quick snack when we've got after school activites. Lately, I've been so busy I feel like I haven't been able to actually sit down and eat, let alone take the time to cook something so I've been using the crockpot a lot as well as grabbing a healthy and satisfying protein snack to help keep me going. Im super excited to tell you about a great snack that is simple, yummy, full of protein, and fun at the same time.
Outdoors StarKist Tuna Creations Pouch
StarKist Tuna Creation Pouches are awesome! I love using them on salads, crackers, tacos, or even just straight out of the bag! The Creation Pouches come in quite a few flavors including Ranch, Herb & Garlic, Sweet & Spicy, Hickory Smoked Tuna, and my favorite Lemon Pepper. Each 2.6 oz single serve pouch has between 80 and 110 calories and tastes amazing! You can also purchase the 4.5 Multi serve pouch with only 60 protein packed calories per serving. These pouches are low in fat and high in natural Omega 3-s as well as packed with flavor!
|My favorite way to eat the Lemon Pepper is straight out of the package!|
|Try the Ranch flavored Tuna Creation on your classic tuna melt for a mouthful of delicious!|
|Herb and Garlic goes great on an Italian style salad! I like mine with a little red onion, some low fat shredded cheese, and fat free Italian dressing,|
|I haven't tried the Hickory Smoked but there is an online recipe for Tuna Pops that sounds yum-o!|
|I like to make tuna tacos with the Sweet and Spicy tuna, just put it in a shell cold or warmed up with a little cheese, some black olives, and corn salsa for a killer meal thats sure to please!|
If none of my ideas seems up your alley, the StarKist website has 24 pages of amazing recipes for you to check out! Id like to tray the tuna sliders and the zucchini boats! You can even search for something or sort the recipes into categories like appetizers or no cook.
Now Im sure you're thinking "Jess, StarKist Tuna has had these awesome little pouches of premium tuna for a while now!" I know my friends, I love them, and buy them often, trust me. Today's blog is really all about something that makes me love these little pouches even more!
