Here’s a healthy spin on tuna pasta salad built from a base of tuna zoodles. With my easy keto recipes, you can recreate all your favorite pasta dishes and high carb foods keto style!

Lemony tuna zoodles with pine nuts. Low-carb. Ketogenic. One-pan.

Zoodles are zucchini noodles!

Believe it or not, vegetable noodles are a very satisfying low-carb alternative to pasta. I use a spiralizer to make thin strips.

My model has three different blades – thin, medium, and broad flat noodle shapes. They will always taste the same, just pick which style you like ascetically. Pine nuts are a special treat for us, they add a deliciously creamy flavor and chewy texture.

Boost your Fats

Per serving, a plate of tuna zoodles has 16 g fat. For a keto meal, you’ll probably want more than that.

Dice an avocado or sprinkle an ounce or two of shredded Parmesan cheese on top of the dish.

You could also add an extra drizzle of olive oil or a piece of my All-Purpose Keto Bread with butter.

Low Mercury Tuna Fish

You may have seen this information on my recent Avocado Tuna Melt recipe, but in case you missed it I want you to know about the wild, low mercury tuna fish from US Wellness.

US Wellness supplies canned tuna sourced from a North Pacific fishery which specializes in using small boats that line-catch individual tuna using the sustainable troll method. This type of albacore has low mercury content and has been categorized as a “Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium. A 6-ounce can from US Wellness contains 12 g fat, 0 g carb and 48 g protein.

Shopping Suggestion: Wild Sustainable Fish from US Wellness

This is just one of many family-friendly low-carb 30 minute meals for lunch or dinner.
