High Protein Tuna Cucumber Boats

Does anyone else struggle to get their daily protein requirements in?

If you didn’t already know, the rule of thumb for how much protein you need to be eating daily if your goal is to build lean muscle and lose body fat is around .8-1x your body weight in grams of protein. That means, for a 160lb woman, her goal would be to eat around 128 - 160g protein daily… or, around 25g protein in all 3 meals and 2 snacks.

It feels like a lot, right?

I know. I totally get it. Typically, this number is a LOT more than my clients tend to consume naturally.

However, as someone who doesn’t believe in simply “shovelling protein shakes down the hatch” to make up for any missed protein in my meals, I’d wayyyyy rather find more creative and tasty ways to get in my protein. Ya feel me!?

That’s why this recipe is so amazing! With 30g protein and only 186 calories per serving - you’re getting a fair bit of protein in your diet, without having it take up a huge chunk of your daily calorie requirements.

Plus, it’s super easy to make. It’s simple, healthy and tastes delicious. And, it’s kinda fun to eat, too! I’d call that a win-win-win.
