Butter Leaf Lettuce Spicy Tuna Recipe

What I love about this recipe is they are so good, you can’t tell it’s canned tuna! For years every summer I would can 100 pounds of tuna (fresh from the OR coast), but for now, we love the white albacore tuna from Costco.

What kind of lettuce is used for lettuce wraps? 

The most popular lettuce used for wraps is often Iceberg lettuce! But for this recipe we love soft butter lettuce! If you love a crunch, you can use Romaine lettuce, too.

To change it up, mix up the veggies and add shredded red onions, slivered almonds, and toss with rice vinegar, a little oil and a pinch of salt.

How do you make it Whole 30?

We have a Whole 30 Charcuterie Board coming up–filled with our favorite Whole 30 snack foods. I can’t wait to share it with you. For now, this recipe is Whole 30 approved (as long as the Veganaise is Sugar-free and made without soy, canola, pea protein, or aquafaba).

You can’t go wrong with a simple canned tuna recipe and lots of bright flavor!

Eat a healthy lunch and take a walk

Here’s what happened yesterday. We were both working away toward a couple of deadlines, and it would have been easier to keep going.

Instead, we grabbed a healthy lunch. Drank an extra glass of water. Put on our snowshoes. And headed out for a couple of hours to enjoy nature, the white and glowing blue landscape. It’s so beautiful where we live (central Oregon).
