Filled with fresh vegetables, avocado, herbs and spicy seasoned tuna this Spicy Thai Chili Tuna Summer Roll makes a great on the go lunch for picnics and beach days all summer long.
I’ve recently fallen into a weird habit now that I’m working from home full time, one so odd that it makes me think I’ve been replaced with an alien version of myself.
I don’t eat real lunches anymore. This may not be weird to some people but for me, it’s odd. I love food, obviously look at my job but it’s more than that, I’ve always been a three square meals a day person. For some reason lunch hour zooms by me until it’s mid-afternoon and my tummy is growling to be fed. At that point I have no desire to actually prepare a proper lunch, so I nibble on whatever has been happening in the kitchen or toss together snacks I find in the fridge and pantry.
This has got to stop. A girl needs to feed herself a healthy mid-day meal and I think I finally found the answer.
I was taking care of my
weekly scratch that, one of the many shopping trips I take each week and started to stock up on lunch items. If it’s in the house, then I have no excuse to prep a good meal when I stumbled across my good friend tuna. Low and behold there were new flavors of Bumble Bee I couldn’t resist, in particular their new Seasoned Tuna Medley Bowl Spicy Thai Chili.
The tuna is lightly marinated with thai flavors and even has a chili right in the center, a little kick of heat was the perfect match to avocado, fresh herbs and a bounty of fresh vegetables. Bumble BeeBee Sensations® is perfect on the go or in your favorite sandwich. For me though, this called to be rolled into an on the go summer roll.
What I love about summer rolls is the fact that you can prep everything in advance. Chop your vegetables, have your herbs ready or walk outside and trim them from your garden and the day you’re ready to eat, assemble and enjoy. Nothing motivates you more for to eat a healthy meal than when you have half the prep already completed.
The biggest challenge is dealing with the rice paper and if it tears, just double wrap it to make sure it survives through lunch.
