As a Student Nurse I find it either extremely hard to find time to eat lunch when I am in the wards or even harder to not eat a lot of junk as it seems to make myself feel better and draw the attention away from my 12 and a half hour shift I have ahead of me. I decided to do a different post today, something that interests me and thats food and diet. I wanted to take something for my lunch that was healthy and nutritious but was extremely easy and fast to make and kept me full. I have put some pictures below and I will explain how to make it...TRUST ME, ITS SIMPLE!

All the ingredients I used.

I used some shredded lettuce, Red onions, Tuna, Sweetcorn and some Salad dressing. If you don't like something in the ingredients totally take something you love and add it in. 
  1. I just took a small bowl and placed, lettuce, red onion and three quarters of the tin of sweetcorn and placed it into the bowl.
  2. I then drained the brine out of the tuna and added it to the pot.
  3. After mixing all the salad together, I added three teaspoons of Salad dressing to the pot to give my salad that wee bit of extra flavour. (feel free to add BBQ sauce, Mayo, or any other sauce that makes your tastebuds tingle!!!)
  4. I added pepper and put it in the fridge overnight so that it was ready for the morning.
The finished result.

It was fabulous when I had it for lunch today. I am going to add pasta next time and maybe try some different sauces in it. It is such a versatile dish and literally can be tweaked to your taste requirements. I had this with a shape yoghurt and an apple..(because I like to think I am healthy, aha- maybe I shouldn't say about the kit kat).
If you try this at all, please send me a picture and tell me what your version of this included. 
What is your favourite healthy snack? 

Have a fab day.
