Tuna “Noodle”Salad

By June 21, 2011December 3rd, 2020Uncategorized

Testimony of the Day

My heaviest weight was 456lbs. I needed a total lifestyle change. My heart was enlarging, I couldn’t walk very far, hard to breathe, asthma, acid reflux.. The only thing I had on my side was my age.. I was only in my early 20s. I had even dropped out of high school because of my weight. After moving to a new town I focused on myself. I adopted the low carb way of eating and shed so much weight so fast. About 2 years ago I hit a plateau that lasted almost a year. No matter what I changed it wasn’t coming off.. I found Maria’s blog and learned so much about my body and the way it works. With the help of Maria’s knowledge and recipes I broke through my plateau and have shed another 70lbs bringing my total loss to 254lbs to date and still losing… My asthma is gone, my heart is ok now, I can walk with no issues, I actually run 80 minutes a few times a week.. I feel amazing!! This is the best lifestyle for me.. I will continue to follow for the foreseeable future.. Thank you Maria for sharing your knowledge and amazing recipes with us..” Ashley

Migraines and Headaches

When clients come to me pleading for help eliminating migraines, I grin because to me it is an easy fix and I know they are going to feel wonderful soon. I have clients wanting me to help eliminate their chronic headaches and migraines all the time. I have lots of tips and tricks up my sleeve so when I started having headaches, I was puzzled. It all started when I decided to see if I were a candidate for LASIK eye surgery (which I am not). The clinic requires you to wear your glasses for a few days which my glasses are a bit weak, but I still wore them for the required time.

Once I heard the bad news that I was not a candidate since my eyes are just too bad (I’m a -11 prescription), I put my contacts back in. That day, my 3 year old was being a typical 3 year old and I blamed my headache on his behavior. But when the headaches continued for the next 3 days, I knew something was wrong. I went to the eye doctor and yep! I was over-prescribed. I was SO ecstatic to go down a 0.5 because that meant I could wear “night and day” contacts (the kind that you can wear for a month without taking out). They don’t make “night and day” in a -11 but they do in a -10.5!!!

Anyway, my point is, there are numerous nutrition reasons for headaches and migraines but one thing that is often over-looked is our eye sight. So when nothing else is working, get your eyes checked! First off, you must drink half your body weight in ounces. Dehydration and not enough quality salt are main causes of headaches. There are a few other major causes of severe headaches and migraines, and they all can be healed by a well-formulated keto-adapted diet as well as therapeutic doses of vitamins and minerals which you may be deficient in. If you need more help in eliminating migraines and headaches click HERE for a detailed supplement plan for only $25.

I love tuna noodle salad. Here is my version. I have brought this to BBQ parties and people love it!

1 jar Hearts of Palm (cheaper at Trader Joe’s!)
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 (12 ounce) can tuna
1/2 cup organic Mayo or my baconnaise recipe
1/4 cup chopped dill pickles
1 pinch of Celtic sea salt
OPTIONAL: Hard Boiled Eggs and a small handful of peas

Cut up the Hearts of Palm into “noodle-like” shapes.

In a large bowl, combine the Hearts of Palm pieces, pickles, celery, eggs and tuna.

Prepare the dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise and salt. Add to tuna mixture, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Serves 4

    Where to you get the olive oil mayo??

  • I make it. I have it on another blog post;)

    Hi Maria,
    Your Website made me want to purchase your book The Art of Healthy eating…Savory grain free low-carb. So I did!

    When reading the recipe: Tuna “Noodle” Salad on my Kindle, the recipe calls for Spectrum Mayonnaise. I immediately Googled where I can purchase this mayo. I found on the manufacturer’s Website that it contains Canola oil and/or Soy bean oil. I see on your Website that you replaced this Spectrum mayo with Organic Mayo or your baconnaise recipe.

    As a customer who paid money in return for a service, I would’ve loved my Kindle book to be updated.

    Besides that, your recipes look delicious and easy to make, and I’m looking forward to trying them.

    Best regards,

    You’ve listed peas as an optional ingredient but I have stayed away from that vegetable because it is a starchy veg. Is that incorrect?

    I’ve never had hearts of palm. Do they have a mild flavor?

    • cemmerich says:

      Yes, I would omit them if your goal is to lose weight and heal. Hearts of palm have little if any flavor. Just add a nice texture. 🙂

  • Anonymous says:

    Maria, between the pickles, tuna, hearts of palm , plus a pinch of salt…..the sodium is quite high??
    For you who has low blood pressure, it’s ok, but for some of us it’s way too much sodium…..could you suggest other seasonings to make this flavourful without the high sodium content? Thanks!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      On a ketogenic lifestyle you need more salt as your body releases much of what it holds onto with higher carb diets. So if eating keto this amount should be fine. 🙂
