Keto Macros: Low Carb Meal Prep Traditional Tuna Salad, The Way Mom Makes It

Mom’s keto friendly tuna salad is the best! An easy classic recipe for low carb tuna salad, just delicious flavors that will remind you of childhood summers. It takes only 15 minutes to make, and it’s perfect for a quick keto lunch or as a side dish.

This is a traditional Tuna Salad just like mom makes. Not too much fuss; this recipe is quick and easy with a delightful flavor profile… but we’re maybe biased.

The calorie macronutrient breakdown helps to make this tuna salad keto friendly. One serving is low in carbs, high in protein, and low on fat, which makes this a perfect lunch for anyone following the Keto diet or simply trying to cut back on carbs! It’s also gluten free.

This recipe is a great source of protein, with over 15 grams per serving. Protein is important for keto dieters to maintain energy levels, muscle mass, and basal metabolic rate.

Like all our Keto Macros Recipes, this tuna salad is flavorful and filling! Tuna salad can be eaten straight from the bowl or served on a bed of lettuce or cucumber slices for a low carb meal with no guilt. We’re always looking for ways to make low-carb cooking as easy as possible for the keto lifestyle.
