Just call me renegade. It doesn’t bother me.
One of my clients once said to me: RESULTS DON’T LIE
That is where I am. Sure, I experiment, and then I have clients and Boot Camp members that are willing to experiment, and in the long run I find things that work pretty much across the board. It’s all in the results.
This is one of those things. One of my first clients gave it it’s name, so don’t blame me for this one. It is something I came up with on one of my later P2’s to help me with busy days. I make it once and it lasts me all day. It has turned out to be a meal that is easily packed and taken with you in a small cooler. It is more than filling and it keeps well cold. Lunch and dinner, all in one.
You might look at the ingredients and say “you are mixing proteins and veggies” and you would be right. However, this is way better trying to find things on the run. It’s well within the legal limits of calories for the day (I have my clients on 500-600 calories a day for the most part) and it’s a complete meal.
Easy peasy for those days that you need easy peasy.
And it’s good. No joke, it’s really good!

Serving Idea: Great for cooler and on the go meals. Especially if you are gone all day. It makes a ton so will keep you full all day on P2.
Note: Officially, this is three proteins: tuna, eggs and cottage cheese. I treat the cottage cheese as the additional milk or half and half that I allow my clients. It also has 4 veggies: tomatoes, onions, lettuce and cucumbers. I treat the tomatoes as the fruit for the day, and the lettuce is a free food where I come from. ::giggle::
This should not be under p2. Your not suppose to have tuna,eggs cottage cheese on P2.
Thank you for your comment Josanne.
If you read my introduction, I do explain that it is not official protocol, but I find it works on occasion. And to be clear, eggs and cottage cheese are allowed on P2.
Thanks for stopping by!
If you haven’t tried this yet YOU MUST. It’s rogue enough to feel sinful but healthy, scrumptious and it works on P2. It’s so good I crave it when I’m not on protocol. Thanks Biz for sharing the again.
Kathy, thanks for such an outstanding review of this delish recipe. When I make it for P3 and beyond, I add my own homemade mayo, and you want to talk sinful, YUM!!! So great of you to stop by.
Just made this today for first time and it was awesome! (even though it didn’t sound that great~~~lol)
So glad you liked it! No, it’s not the best name in the world, but the taste is awesome!
I really need a good recipe or two for homemade mayo. Can you help?
This requires a immersion blender, but I follow this YouTube video, except I don’t use canola oil, instead I use a Very Light Olive Oil. Hope that helps!
