We are half way through summer break, which means my family has hit a lunch slump!  During the school year, the kids not only have breakfast at school, they also typically buy lunches there or bring sandwiches and purchase extras from the snack line.  During the summer, I must go from planning one meal a day to three plus snacks.

My grocery bill triples, the kids complain about “this again”, while my time is consumed with making meals.


StarKist Tuna and Salmon Pouches

Luckily, I was invited to learn more about StarKist Tuna and Salmon Pouches at Blogher last month. 
I grew up seeing StarKist Charlie in commercials and my mom always having cans of Starkist Tuna in the cabinets for Tuna sandwiches.  However, I had no idea how much of a variety Starkist offers and how many meal ideas there are using not only their original tuna but their delicious Tuna Creations.   that have opened my meal time options wide up my meal time variety, while saving me time on meal prep.

I received a couple pouches of the Tuna Creations Pouches at Blogher to try, and they have been in my shopping cart every week since.


They are Quick and Easy!

Each pouch is a single serving and requires no can opener or draining.  Just tear it open and your good to go.  This may sound silly but there have been afternoons when I purposely didn’t use the tuna fish in the cabinet because I didn’t want to deal with draining the can and the fish smell because my dishes weren’t done.  No judgement please.


They are Nutritious!

Featuring at least 13 grams of lean protein and less than 110 calories per pouch, these are the perfect snack option to keep you going.


They are Versatile:

I am on the go constantly, so you will likely find a pouch and a plastic fork in my pocketbook for an instant snack anywhere.  The flavor options are great on their own, but I also add them to my salads and pastas, top our chicken breasts with different flavor creations, make sandwiches with them, top veggies with it, and so much more.

My favorite way of serving the StarKist Tuna Creations is to open a few pouches of the Thai Chili Style Pouches and spread it into a nice bowl and pair it with crackers for a party appetizer.  No one knows all I did was tear open a pouch and served.


They Taste Great!

StarKist Tuna and Salmon Pouches are Available in 21 varieties, including 13 deliciously seasoned Tuna & Salmon Creations, tuna & salmon in water or oil, as well as low sodium options.  The meal options are limitless and with such a vast variety you never get bored when using them as a healthy snack option!
