Low Cal Lunch Recipe: Tuna Wraps

I know this isn't some phenomenal recipe or anything but it is what I just made for lunch so I thought I would share my most recent low cal lunch creation. (I eat this like 3 days a week. lol)

Tuna Wraps with Lemon Vinegar dressing. Only about 170 calories.



What you need:
1 can Albacore tuna in WATER
4-5 Romaine Lettuce Spears
1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
Fresh lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
Salt to taste
Lemon Pepper Seasoning

First mix Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon juice in a small bowl. Arrange spears of lettuce on plate. Drain canned tuna and divide equally on top of lettuce. Sprinkle with sea salt and lemon pepper seasoning to taste. Drizzle vingegar mixture over the top.

Super easy, super quick, and super low cal.

It will make up for the cocktails I am going to consume tonight for Girls Night.

Looks yummy.

I have made them like that too, I thought it was a great idea in my own mind too, to use Romaine leaves as 'bread/wrap'.

It's actually pretty tasty. I love finding what I can use to replace bread. Much healthier option.

I like the apple cider vinegar idea! I usually mix lemon and a bit of Italian dressing but this is much healthier! I also usually eat it over lettuce, or in a bowl and scoop it with celery sticks, but wraps will be a nice change!

Yummy!! That apple cider vinegar sauce sounds delish. I don't know if you've tried this, but another good thing in the lettuce wraps is the hickory smoked tuna. We should start a thread about low cal recipe ideas, I bet all of us could compile a great list.

A couple years ago I had a pampered chef party and this is what we made for our 'earth day' theme. I now make this often it's yummy!

Oh wow this looks great!!! I'll have to add this to my lunch option. I'm always looking for low WW point lunches and I do eat tuna (on an Arnold thin) but I love Romaine lettuce too ... mmmmm

I also second/third the idea of low cal recipes.

Glad I could share a new option for some of you.

I too like the idea of a low cal thread. I can get one started. I would love to hear more ideas!
