Tuna Salad Veggie Rolls

ImageSo, I have been listening to Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover audio book. You can thank my sweet boyfriend {who has told me almost every weekend to listen to it} for that. But, to my surprise, I am actually enjoying listening to it. Dave Ramsey for president! Anyone?

Really – if you want to plan for your future, you may want to check it out. I like the audio book. But, you can read it too if you are book lover.

One thing I cannot get past is spending my precious lunch money on the work cafeteria. I mean, can I really justify $6 for a salad when I can make my own at home for a dime?

I can buy a six pack of romaine lettuce at Costco and eat salads for more than a week for next to nothing. So, that is my new challenge – I am taking my homemade lunch to work.

Check out these awesome Tuna Salad Veggie Rolls that I made last night (pictured in the post.) And, I used the leftovers for a salad at work today. Score! Gluten free, healthy and cheap. This tuna salad was quick and easy to make, and I used the lettuce leaves as bread!

You will need: 1 can of light tuna in water, 2 cage free hardboiled eggs, 2 tbsp. light mayo and one handful of shredded cheese.

Simply drain the tuna and dump it in a bowl. Peel hardboiled eggs and use an egg cutter to dice them up in pieces. Add to tuna mixture. Scoop out the mayo and add it to the bowl. Stir this up and sprinkle in the cheese last.

Pluck off three big leaves of romaine lettuce and fill them with tuna salad. Your dinner is served.

Oh, I also sprinkled some olive oil dressing on top of the leaves. I used the left over oil from Trader Joe’s Marinated Mozzarella Cheese. This is another way to save a buck – just added the oil to a little glass canister. Yum.
