A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Four years later, she has maintained a 65-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

Tuna salad has always been a favorite – atop of bed of lettuce, in keto-friendly wraps or wrapped in romaine lettuce or cabbage leaves, stuffed in an avocado half…and there are so many basic and fancy ways to make a delicious keto tuna salad that’s filling and satisfying. I make a whole range of keto tuna salads – sometimes a classic with pickles (I prefer slicing up cornichons) or sometimes with a Middle Eastern vibe with cumin. Either way, with the right balance of creamy mayo and flavorings, tuna salad is a great option when following a keto lifestyle.

How To Eat Keto Tuna Salad

So first, while I have heard about the infamous Aldi Keto Bread, we don’t have Aldi markets around us so I haven’t been able to try it. However, if you want a delicious, keto bread to go with your tuna, this recipe is the best keto bread EVER. Ever.

I have already talked about my love of Cut Da Carb wraps, so I often roll my tuna salad in one of those bad boys and am good to go, but I also love stuffing half of an avocado with the tuna salad — the balance of creaminess of mayo with the smooth avocado texture is just heaven. And, provides even more healthy fats!

I also had a long-time obsession with OhMyKeto’s keto crisp which is PERFECT for tuna melts, so if you want an ooey-gooey tuna melt – definitely check out her recipe.

Now for my Tuna Recipe. I keep it simple and love the Safe Catch brand that I get at Costco. Enjoy!!
