I let my mother down. I’m a terrible cook.
We grew up poor, yet there was one thing that we never struggled with and that was a warm dinner on a table. Because my mom was a magician and an incredible cook.
I, on the other hand, never liked cooking. Every time my mom and all my aunts would ask me “when are you going to learn how to cook?” my answer was always “Never. When I grow up, I will be dining in fancy restaurants .” #basic.
When I moved across the world, I quickly realized that it takes boatloads of money to dine in fancy restaurants. It’s not so healthy for my waistline anyway.
So I started to cook. Well technically, I began doing so because I started working in a kitchen at a restaurant, a fancy one.
First, I learned how to cook salads.
Then, it was pasta with marinara sauce.
After, I mastered some pizza making skills.
Followed by a multiple failed attempts to make dumplings.
But when I called my mom and asked to give me her famous apple pie recipe, she thought I had a fever. (My mom’s apple pie is better than yours. There, I said it.)
Seven years later, I’m in no way a great cook, but now I actually enjoy cooking.
So much that when I cook, I like to imagine I’m a participant in one of those cooking shows, like Chopped or Master Chef.
Don’t you be laughing now.
Anyhow, this past Sunday, when I was meal prepping, I whipped out a healthy version of a tuna salad that tastes AMAZING. And I’m about to share the recipe with you!
Seriously, it’s CRAZY delish.
All you need is
- 1 can of Tuna
- 1 small Avocado
- 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard.
- 1 small Cucumber
- Salt n’ Pep to your tastings.
Put everything in a bowl, mix, and bam, you’ve got yourself a healthy, delicious, and easy to make tuna salad. Seriously, this simple. Enjoy!
