Tuna Salad is so healthy & versatile, you can eat as a sandwich, or a wrap.  How about  on top of a big healthy salad; or crackers.  My low point alternative is to fill inside of  celery sticks, endive or make  fresh lettuce/spinach cups for a delicious lunch to go!  Sprinkle a little Italian seasoning and cracked fresh black pepper on top for increased flavor.   Make it on a Sunday and enjoy at work for the next few days.
