We realize that you may not always have the time to cook meals from scratch, and that a quick and easy substitution may be needed. We always recommend cooking the real thing, but in a pinch you can try this instead:

Buy omega-3 eggs and hard boil for 10 minutes. In bowl, mix 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard with 1 Tbs. olive oil and toss with 5 oz. package of tuna and diced celery. Top with diced green onion for extra flavor. Slice cooked egg on top and serve with whole grain toast. Enjoy!
