Tasty Tuna & Roasted Beets

The Zodiac sign… Everyone loves a good horoscope now and again, but I think I err on the side of caution when it comes those that are true “believers”. It’s like horse people (no offence) I get it horses are great, conversation over. But when it comes to horoscopes or predicting things to come, isn’t it all suppose to be fun and games??? Like I love a good fortune cookie, and have even to been to wish upon a star, but not even Jiminy cricket himself could convince me otherwise.

Reminded me of an interesting date I had the pleasure of experiencing once. Looking back now it was going really well but then he pulls a piece a paper out of his pocket the moment before the lights go down in the movie (on our first date might I add) and starts reading off the type of person I am based on my zodiac sign, then whispers “by the way our signs are VERY compatible”.

Here are a few reasons this was a bad idea:

2. I’m now trapped in the dark with you for a 2 hour cinematic experience where you’re probably enjoying the film and naming our children, and all I’m thinking is WHY ME!!!
3. Pretty sure it’s a rule of thumb that you keep crazy on the back burner until I’m in love or at least a lot in like before we play put the lotion in the basket.

Maybe I’m just being picky or fickle, but according to my zodiac sign I can’t help it, it’s just who I am.

But something I am not picky about, tasty tuna lettuce wraps and roasted beets.

Ingredients

1/2 can of tuna
1-2 slices of red onion
1-2 stalk of celery
1/2 avocado
1 tsp mustard
1 tbsp fresh dill
Boston lettuce
salt and pepper to taste

Roasted beets

4 beets (will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days)
2 tbsp avocado or grapeseed oil
salt and pepper to taste

Fill a pot with water and toss in your beets, just make sure you wash off any dirt first (you want the water just covering them. Then once your water comes to a boil turn down to medium heat and cover and let them do their thing for about 45 minutes. Once you can pierce with a fork they are good to go, just peel off the skin once cooled. But if you want to kick it up a notch finish them off in the oven

Preheat your oven to 425 and line a pan with parchment paper.

Peel and chop up your beets into large bite size pieces, you don’t want to make them too small or they’ll just burn. Toss with some oil then onto the pan and into the oven they go for about 10 minutes.

Plate em up and toss with a little salt and pepper to taste.

Next in a small mixing bowl throw in your tuna, celery, red onion, dill, avocado, mustard and mash with a fork.

Using your Boston lettuce as a wrap (I like to use two pieces, makes the wrap a bit more durable) scoop on your tuna mixture and some salt and pepper to taste.
