Big Salad With Tuna: Dinner

This is my salad with tuna, fake bacon bits, peanuts, almonds, Basalmic fat free dressing, and black and green olives. It was really good and cool for the warm day. For afterwards, I had homemade popsicles made with frozen berries, mixed berry Greek yogurt and 2% milk. The popsicles were made today with my Niece’s help. The popsicles are 16 carbs. The entire meal is 30 carbs.. 😀👍

Stay safe, happy and healthy!😀👍

Thank you! It’s one of my favorite things to have for a dinner or lunch.😀👍🥗

Quorn do version of Bacon. It's OK. Definitely better than eating the real thing.

Hi Leah, that looks so delicious and healthy. I love olives esp when they don’t make them too salty. 30 calories meal is very light and great for dinner as our meal should be upside down pyramid. I am not big on sweets but the idea of your popsicles is pretty balanced with probiotics and loaded with anti-oxidants. Enjoy your dinner. 😋

Thank you for saying that about the salad. I enjoy salads with or for dinner any night. 30 carbs. is very low carb. for dinner, but great for blood sugar control.😀👍🥗

What did you have for dinner tonight?😀👍

You’re welcomed. Yes me too I like light dinners with either salad, vegetable soup or very light carb. Thank you for raising the awareness in food intakes because everything is accumulated as we age. I haven’t made dinner yet as it is still around 4pm right now over here. But here’s one of my typical dinner dish. It’s the clear crystal noodles with veggies and sesame dressing. 😁

That sounds and looks really good. I like Thai, Indian, Chinese and Mexican dishes that are gluten free and low carb..😀👍

Oh yes me too. It is not gluten free I don’t think. This is typical Vietnamese vegetarian cold noodle salad. Have you tried papaya salad as one of Thai popular dish? It can be spicy if you add some chilis. I think I’m just gonna have some vegetable soup tonight and strawberries with Nutella as dessert 😁👍

That sounds good for a dinner tonight. I hope you enjoy it and please share a picture when you’re ready.😀👍

I will for sure at later date. 😁👍 Here’s another Thai dish homemade: vegetarian curry with jasmine rice I had for lunch before. I like being one with the kitchen when I’m hungry 😂🤣😅

That’s great to hear! Can’t wait to see everything when you’re ready.😀👍

I will make food posts later on. However I don’t count calories like you do, is it a requirement? 😅

No, not at all. I count carbs. since I have to do insulin doses and I don’t want to take too much or too little with my meals.😀👍

That’s very dedicated for maintaining good health Leah. Thank you. You have a wonderful night and enjoy your dessert with your new books. 😁👍

You meal looks very appealing Koko. 😊

Thank you Jerry, since this pandemic, I start cooking more, homemade stuffs for myself. They are eatable. 😁

I love salads Activity, specially seafood salads. Great idea for making ice lollies, we make them yourself sometimes with mixed frozen berries, I like to warm them in a pan first to defrost and mush them a little bit, when they cooled down I sometimes add yogurt or a little cream.. we haven't done them for a while as the freezer seems to be full lately.

My wife been asking me to buy a separate freezer for some time now...I think due to your post I will buy one today..and order lots more lollipop moulds.

The kids really like the ones made with just cola or orange squash, I like water and lime juice with a little salt and sugar.

But ofcourse the mixed berries are packed with nutrients.

Thanks for the reminder, its going to make a lot of people happy 😁

Thank you for saying that! It’s fun having my Niece help with meals/treats for everyone. She helped add the Greek yogurt and frozen mixed fruit with 2% milk. Was really delicious.

We had the salad with tuna and it was very light. Never felt stuffed afterwards.😀👍🥗

I know its great fun having my kids help and learning at the same time.Just been looking at all the different freezers and lollipop moulds on Lazda, it's the same as Amazon really..but Thai.

Let my wife and kids do all the choosing..so I don't get into trouble with buying the wrong shapes and colours. 😁

Time for another coffee and a little walk round the garden, I just saw from the window a bag that was protecting the mango inside drop down onto the grass..

That's fantastic to hear. Tuna is one of my favorite types of fish for any big salad. It goes well with a lot of salad dressings when mixed in or on top of the salad greens. :-)

i understand that tinned tuna though tasty does not have omega 3 oils as they have been processed out . tinned sardines or pilchards are better. maybe you are eating fresh tuna which does contain the omega oils . i love all fish

Hi Leah you can’t beat a big salad so nice one and frozen berries with yogurt even better. 👍😊

Activity2004Administrator in reply to Jerry

Yes! You're absolutely right about the frozen berries and then the Greek yogurt mixed in for the popsicles. They were really good for a warm evening's dessert. The salad was made with some of my favorite items, so that made things easy, too, Jerry. Hopefully, we can have another salad in the next few days from now. It's going to be very hot this weekend starting tomorrow. :-)

Hey we could do with some of that heat as it’s 50 here and it’s wet and windy and I think it’s going to get worse! ☔😁

I'd love to send some of the warm temps.! We have the air conditioning on at full blast today and may do the same this weekend. The weather forecast doesn't show any rain coming, but they're sometimes 90% of the time wrong, so we'll see. :-)

It depends on how big the bowl you want to use and if you have the ingredients in the house. We may have to buy more bagged lettuce/mixed salad soon when we do our weekly orders online for the stores. :-)
