01 Apr Poke Tuna Salad Recipe
Does anyone else love doing burpees?
I am so into burpees nowadays. Its replaced my love for the track. Although, if NYC spring ever gets its act together and warms the ‘eff up, I am really looking forward to some surrious time on the track. Four hundred repeats are MY JAM. I love to hate them. I hate to love them. They give me all the feels.
You know what else gives me all the feels? Sitting on my fire escape. If the weather ever warms up, I can assure you I will be spending tons of time on my fire escape, reading my super nerdy ASPEN textbook on clinical nutrition. There’s just something about DIGESTION that makes me tingle with joy. WEIRD. I KNOW.
I just really want spring.
This recipe will be PERFECTION in the summer when no one wants to turn their oven on. Let me tell ya the little back story behind the flavah-flave of this recipe. I visited San Diego a few weeks ago & visited the SD Little Italy Farmer’s Market. The market was loaded with incredibly delicious foods. I ate the BEST hummus of my dang life. Like. IT WAS ANOTHER LEVEL of incredible. What was it called? Well, for those of you who do not live in NYC and live in Cali, I implore you to eat The Majestic Garlic’s hummus ASAP. Its freaking amazing.
Another incredible food Sam (my friend) and I tried was the Poke Bowl. Now, first of all. This is the trickiest thing in the world to say. My brain calls it a Poke Ball and I feel this impulsive need to open up the Pokemon Go app on my iPhone and try and ‘catch ’em all,’ but that aside, the Poke Bowl is BOMB. Its so good. Wait, I guess I should say its “dope” since that’s what the San Diego peeps day.
Now part of the magic of rice and raw fish is certainly just its resemblance of sushi (the best food ever)…but the other part of the magic was the insanely delicious SAUCE. It was heavenly – sweet, tangy and a tad spicy. So while I do not have tons of raw tuna chillin’ in my fridge on the reg, I certainly eat a fair share of White Albacore tuna from da can. Thus, Poke Tuna Salad was born. I put the salad over sweet potato so I could soak up the extra sauce since its so dang delish. You should do that too.
