Tuna Fish Salad Sandwich

Tuna fish has always been a very controversial topic in my group of friends. In college, half our house ate canned tuna on a weekly basis and the other half was disgusted by the concept and scent. I have to admit, I was part of the latter portion of the house. Along with the split of who cracked open a can for snacks or dinner, there was the ongoing discussion of whether tuna was an acceptable food to eat in public. Our conversations, almost too often, somehow ended up in an array of these questions: would you eat tuna fish on your first day of work? What about on a date? God forbid, on an airplane? Eventually, I was finally convinced to give tuna fish a try, after finding a company I felt safe trusting, and with the additions below it is safe to say I am a fan. This does not mean I answer the prior questions with a passionate yes, but it has resulted in some apology texts to my former roommates who I gave so much heat to. So, if you are like me, and curious what the other side is raving about, give this combo below a try. I promise, it is really freaking good. And if you still don’t like it, well, then, judge away.

Strawberry and Banana Overnight Oats

Strawberry and banana go together like Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. At one point in everyone’s childhood, this was their favorite combination, but overtime, we have all slowly put it on the back burner and forgot about it while moving on to bigger and better things, such as banana and peanut butter (the Beyonce and Jay Z). But, hold the phone. Let’s rewind and revisit this childhood love affair. Because we all may have moved on and all, but it is still incredibly delicious and worth talking about again. Try this recipe out, sit back, and take a trip back to the 90s while enjoying your breakfast.  (And if this is what it takes for Britney and JT to get back together than I will eat this breakfast every god damn day).

Green Smoothie

This may be the simplest, easiest to make, least ingredient recipe on here, but I swear this is one of my favorite things I’ve mastered. After many sessions in front of my vitamix adding and subtracting multiple ingredients and causing my neighbors to officially hate me (the vitamix thunderstorm of sound is not something people always wake up to with a smile at 6:30 AM), I finally found what works. That being said, this recipe is very adaptable to whoever will be gulping it down. Don’t like peanut butter? First of all, who are you? That aside, fine, you can easily remove it from the shake. Like a more tropical feel? Add in some mango or pineapple. Like it thicker? Throw some coconut milk or yogurt in there. Even get wild and toss in a frozen ½ avocado (sounds very odd but thickens this bad boy up). The world is your vitamix and the ingredients are all just living in it.

Banana & Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Yet another easily transformable and prepable (I’m officially making that a word) breakfast. This takes legitimately under 5 minutes to make and continuously saves you so much time and money the next morning. Not only is this hands down the champion on my inexpensive / filling scale, but it is also perfectly served in a recently finished peanut butter jar. This will guarantee some stares from bystanders (confused why because in my mind eating PB out of a jar is a perfectly acceptable practice), but will allow you to easily bring breakfast somewhere and chuck the container without any hassle. I thank Elvis every damn day for this combination.

Apple Pie Parfait

Want to feel like you are eating breakfast out of a Pinterest board even though you have zero idea how to DIY anything? This breakfast will help you achieve that goal. It will also make you feel the emotions every millennial female strives to capture once the leaves begin to change colors: all things fall (without having to go to an apple orchard simply for the Instagram).
