I know it’s not always easy to eat protein when you’re busy. The struggle of preparing food and taking something on the road is a big struggle. I usually start my day doing really well and then I struggle to eat protein in the afternoon because I’m not at home and don’t have the time to prepare something.
My new favorite way to increase my protein has been with tuna pouches. They’re a great budget-friendly way to increase protein without a lot of work. The flavored pouches are great and I prefer to use the Spicy Thai Chili tuna pouch for this Thai Tuna Cracker Snack recipe.
How To Make Thai Tuna Cracker Snacks From Tuna Pouches
I eat the tuna straight from the pouch and enjoy it on-the-go because a convenient spoon is included. The Seasoned Tuna Pouches make it simple to fuel my body with the necessary protein (12 -15 grams in each pouch) I need to keep up with my boys while fitting into my hectic lifestyle. It’s also a great, affordable solution to increase your protein intake. That’s a win – win!
So next time you’re stuck in an afternoon meeting or the dreaded carpool line, take a few minutes to prepare this snack and you’ll have a great protein-rich option. It’ll change the way you think of tuna and you’ll love the simplicity of using tuna pouches.
The recipe offers a fun way to eat the Seasoned Tuna Pouches when you’ve got a little more time, making them even more versatile to keep in your pantry. When you try this recipe, you’ve got the zest and protein of the tuna combined with a little crunch and unexpected cool flavor of the basil.
How To Prepare Your Tuna Snack Ahead Of Time
I love to make this as a snack or a light lunch. If you want to make it for lunch, I suggest putting together your dressing and tuna. When you’re ready to eat lunch, just stack the topping on top of the cracker. Crackers can get soggy if they have the topping on them all day long. Avoid the soggy cracker, but stacking them at the last minute.
How To Take Your Thai Tuna Cracker Snack To Go
Use the tuna pouches if you want to take your snack to go! As mentioned above, assemble everything at the last minute. I love using a Bento Lunch Box that keeps everything separate. Then, just stack your crackers and enjoy as a quick lunch.
