It’s tuna time folks!!  I am SO pumped to be partnering with Safe Catch once again to highlight their incredible tuna products.  Tuna is one of my favorite easy proteins and now that I am pregnant Safe Catch is the only kind I will eat!  They test every single tuna for mercury levels so that they are safe for everyone – even 15 week pregnant Kelsey.  Yeah that’s right I said 15 weeks!  AH.  I should probably start a registry or start thinking about a nursery but there will be time for that… right?!  In the meantime I am going to just keep working and figuring out how to trick myself into eating healthy food.  I don’t dislike veggies as much as I did the first trimester but I still don’t love them like I used to so tricking myself is KEY!  Recipes in my new eBook are great for this and because it is filled with good veggie packed casseroles I decided to make one for the blog too.

Safe Catch came out with tons of naturally flavored tuna last year and it is so fun to throw into dishes to give them tons of added flavor.  I was starring into my pantry and saw the Tandoori flavor and thought it would be fabulous with some cauliflower rice and bell peppers and creamy sauce.  I love this recipe because you just throw everything into a bowl and  stir it together then pour it into a casserole dish and bake it!  Just the kind of recipe my tired prego self needs.  First thing you need to do is go on Safe Catch’s website and grab some tandoori tuna – then get to cooking!  If you are looking for it in your area you can check out their site store finder but make sure they sell the tandoori flavor!  I just loved this simple recipe because it is perfect to make for the week and reheat and has your protein, vegetables and healthy fat all in one nice package.
