Are you doing a Whole30 right now? I kind of feel like I’m the only one NOT doing one at this point — well, outside of my husband. But January just didn’t feel like the right month to take one on for us…
However, that doesn’t mean we’re not trying to eat healthier. Since doing our first Whole30 last April, we’ve settled into eating a modified version of it on a daily basis. Of course the holidays provided plenty of temptation, so we’re getting back on track, working on our label-reading skills and cutting out those added sugars again. Oh, and we’re trying out a few new recipes, too.
Assuming you started your Whole30 on January 1st, you should be slightly beyond the halfway mark now. At this point you’re probably hoping to never eat another hard-boiled egg again. You might even be approaching the “I am SO over this” stage… Yes? I’ve found the best remedy is to try some new recipes. And I’ve got a chili lime tuna stuffed sweet potato recipe to share today that you can probably make right now — assuming you have a well-stocked pantry… And of course, you do!
Blue Harbor Fish Co Albacore Tuna
Tuna fish is one of my favorite essential pantry ingredients, whether I’m doing a Whole30 or not. Filled with heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, it’s a super versatile form of protein that can be used in many different recipes — or eaten straight from the pouch (my preferred format).
I always look for Blue Harbor Albacore tuna pouches at the grocery store. Pouches are ever so much more convenient than cans, and I love that these don’t need to be drained. Each pouch is filled with sustainably-caught, wild Albacore tuna that’s hand-selected and packed with only water or water and sea salt (no preservatives!), depending on the variety. This format makes them far easier to tote around than a can, and the flavor is delicious, mild, and very clean!
AND Blue Harbor tuna is harvested only from Marine Stewardship Council certified fisheries, showing their commitment to sustainability. What a fantastic bonus!
Chili Lime Tuna Recipe
As I mentioned, I’m not above eating tuna straight from the pouch in a pinch. But this chili lime tuna takes almost no time at all to throw together, and it’s SO good over a tender pressure-cooked sweet potato! Add some sliced avocado on a bed of arugula on the side, and you’ve got a new and exciting lunch idea that just might help you pull through the final days of your Whole30.
To make the chili lime tuna, you just need to add four simple ingredients to a pouch of Blue Harbor Albacore tuna: chili powder, cumin, lime juice (and zest if desired), and a drizzle of avocado oil. See, I told you they’re probably in your pantry as we speak! Just mix them all together and season to taste with a little salt and pepper.
Chili Lime Tuna Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
You can totally eat this chili lime tuna all on its own, but I find it much more satisfying served over a sweet potato. Add some diced jalapeño pepper for extra heat and crunch, if you like (and I do)!
