Hi everyone. For my lunch today, I'm having: tuna, garlic flavored hummus and an apple. The total carbs. for the meal will be 24. You can substitute any flavor of hummus for mayonnaise. One of my favorite flavors is the spinach and artichoke, but we unfortunately don't have that one right now.

Have a great rest of the day/evening/night. :-)

Hi Leah you lunch sounds perfect to me as I love garlic hummus and spinach and artichoke sounds really good. It’s great that you can eat so healthily and keep it low carb. So you enjoy the rest of your day now. 😊

Thank you for saying that, Hidden. Those are two of my favorite flavors of hummus I enjoy when having tuna. Roasted Red Pepper and Olive Tapanada is a few others, when possible and available.😀👍🧄

I've never had spinach and artichoke hummas Leah so that's one for me to look out for in the future, and garlic flavour is always good. This certainly sounds like a tasty and healthy lunch and super low carb!

Thank you, Sue! Yes, it's one of my favorite types of lunches and I decided to have an apple instead of a yogurt today to change things up just slightly. Even with an apple, the lunch was still very low carb.. When I have a yogurt, sometimes, the total is slightly higher, but not over.

Garlic hummus is really good and goes well with a lot of different types of fish to mix in instead of mayo.. Once in a while, I use garlic with salmon, but it depends on how much of both items we have in the house. :-)

It was great and I enjoyed it very much. The apple 🍎 I had was medium sized.😀👍

Tuna with garlic hummus sounds fantastic

Have you tried spinach and artichoke as an option for tuna and hummus? That's another good one to use. :-)

Spinach and artichoke is the hummus flavor and they're together. It's really good, but sometimes not easy to get when shopping now and then. :-)

It sounds yummy as a flavor but my top pick would be garlic hummus. Hope you get more opportunities to find the spinach and artichoke since you like it.

Have you tried making your own?

We sometimes do our own hummus, but it depends on if we have the ingredients.😀👍👍

All I had was ham sandwiches & a bag of apples
