I’ve quite a fair few go to “no cook” meals..

And of course tuna had to be added to the mix. Stir fries and lots more eggs are to fill the rest of the week, perhaps a steak if I can manage to cut something edible from what is a beautiful piece of haunch venison which should by all rights be roasted as a whole. I plan on sticking the majority of it in the freezer for a rainy and oven working day sometime in the near future!

This salad was incredibly quick and easy to prepare. I devoured the whole lot with a side of two fried eggs and mound of avocado on top..I was feeling particularly hungry! You could of course wrap it up in some lettuce leaves of choice for some handy pick up able wraps or a post meal thought was to simply piled it high in to two side of a pitted avocado…perhaps with a little scooped out to accommodate more filling.

Soaking the almonds is key to make them easier to digest (I definitely notice the difference, not only on my tummy but also my jaw!).

“Nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances found in nuts grains and seed can be minimized or eliminated by soaking. These inhibitors and toxic substances are enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins), and goitrogens.”

It also makes the nutrients more readily absorbed by the body once ingested.

I try not to overdo the tuna..usually! Due to the high mercury content but this salad and my seared tuna steak are rare exceptions to the rule!
