As a mom, I’m constantly on the lookout for a quick and easy low carb dinner or lunch that everyone in my family can enjoy. It’s not easy right? I used to think that way, but there are so many carb substitutes that help you save time and money- and no one will taste the difference!

Perfect Low Carb Meal Prep Idea

Low carb tuna sushi bowls are a fantastic meal prep idea. It is made primarily with cauliflower, avocado, cucumber, and a special sauce that can stay freshly prepared in your refrigerator. Keep a sliced avocado fresh by squeezing lemon over it- it’ll keep one from browning for at least a day.

A low carb tuna sushi bowl consists of cauliflower rice as an alternative to starchy sushi rice.

I like to buy frozen packs of cauliflower rice for convenience, but you can make your own fresh:
1. Chop head of cauliflower into quarters
2. Use a food processor to break down florets until you achieve a rice-like 
consistency. You can even do this with a cheese grater !

Budget Friendly Tuna Sushi In A Bowl

Uncooked, sashimi grade tuna is typically used in tuna sushi. However, it averages at $25 per pound- that budget would cover ALL of the ingredients you need to make infinite canned tuna sushi bowls!

Some of my kids can be picky eaters, so I will use roast chicken in place of seafood. The tuna can also be swapped out for crab meat, shrimp or even salmon. Imitation crab is an inexpensive option that also tastes just as great!

Customize Your Tuna Sushi Bowls

I can’t express enough how customizable this recipe is. You’ll memorize it fast and once you do, the vegetables, sauce and garnishes used are completely up to you. Have fun with it.
