Muscle Building Tuna Recipe

One of the problems with bodybuilding and eating correctly is the boredom that can set in with eating the same old foods. In light of this you will find some great muscle building tuna recipes below that will give you a brilliant alternative to the mundane meals you currently endure.

Tuna is one of the best protein food as it is high in protein and low in pretty much everything else so there is no risk of bad fats becoming part of your meal.

Tuna Salad

1 Romaine Lettuce
1 Tin of Tuna
5 Cherry Tomatoes
Small portion of Feta Cheese (low fat variety)
Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and pepper
Teaspoon of olive oil

Using a chopping board and knife, cut all your ingredients and add to a bowl. Now take a teaspoon of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and add to the bowl before adding a pinch of salt and pepper. Now toss your salad and serve.

Tuna Mix

1 Tin of Tuna
1 Onion
50 grams Cottage Cheese (low fat)
Potatoe (baked)

Cut your onion into small fine pieces and put in a bowl, now add the drained tin of tuna. Take your low fat cottage cheese and add to the bowl and mix. Now you have a new and interesting tuna mix for your jacket potatoe. This is a low fat and high protein variation of the normal tuna, cheese, onion and mayo version.

Tuna Bake

1 Tin of Tuna
1 Tin of Kidney Beans
1 Carrot
Tin of naturally sweet sweetcorn
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

Cut the potatoe into medium sized cubes and add to a baking tray. Add the tined tuna, sweetcorn and kidney beans to the tray. Now cut your carrot into small chunks before adding the carrot and peas to the tray.

Put a pinch of sat and pepper into the mix and then add 200 ml of water and a tea spoon of olive oil. Use a wooden spoon to mix the food in the tray before baking in the oven at 190 degrees for about an hour.
