Gluten-Free Snack Option: Tuna Creations from Starkist


Starkist Tuna CreationsOn Day 2 of my Bachelor on the Cheap Gluten-Free Challenge 2023, I was considering snacks to put on the menu and thought of Tuna Creations from Starkist.

Coming in a variety of tuna salad flavors, the handy snack-sized pouches are also available in salmon and chicken salad options.  A perfect amount to make a sandwich or in my case, using a slice of cheddar cheese and making a wrap, the tuna was nice and moist, the sauce base was delightful and I got a bit of crunch from the celery and water chestnuts.  With only 80 calories, packing 13 grams of protein and just 3 grams of carbs, this is a repeat snack! 

Putting the tuna salad between a couple of slices of bread would have pushed the calorie count up at least another 140, along with an additional 24 grams or so in carbs.  Then there's the wheat gluten thing...

Tuna Salad & Cheese Snack
No bread required or missed!

With the slice of cheddar cheese, my total calorie count was 150, the protein number was 18 grams and just the 3 grams in carbs. 

Available at Walmart for just $0.89 for a 3-ounce pouch, Starkist Tuna Creations are a smart choice vs. snacking on wheat products such as pasta salad, crackers, multi-grain chips or something with a bun.  Tasting great and perfectly portioned, I'm giving Starkist Tuna Creations 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap Stars.
