Owning a meal prep company is such a rewarding experience. I get to help San Diegans live a clean & colorful lifestyle by providing nutritious (and tasty) meals delivered straight to their doors weekly! Creating new recipes has been one of my favorite parts about running my meal prep service. So I have to share my favorite recipe with you: Tuna Nicoise Salad featuring Blue Harbor Fish Co.

The convenience factor

One thing that’s necessary when it comes to running a meal prep company is convenience. Our mission is to use locally sourced and fresh ingredients. This really doesn’t leave much room for the convenience factor, so I’ll take it where I can get it.  

I chose to go with Blue Harbor Tuna for this recipe because I can get the convenience without compromising quality. Blue Harbor provides hand-selected, sustainable tuna from Marine Stewardship Council certified fisheries that comes in a pouch. Now, I can already see you thinking, “Wow, how’s this special? There are a variety of fish offered in pouches.”

Well, let me tell you why! The awesome part about Blue Harbor Tuna is that their tuna comes in a no drain pouch! Say what? This is the type of convenience factor I’m looking for! To top that off, each pouch is packed only with water. Or if you’re looking for a little seasoning, you can also get your tuna packed in water and sea salt. Both of these options leave me with quality tuna that tastes fresh, delicious and mild, and that I’m proud to serve to my clients.
