No Fish Tuna Fish is by far my favorite thing these days. An invention that came after a 17 day cleanse at Angel Farms and twenty something days of soft foods. My need for protein and something that resembled real food got my imagination going with what was in the refrigerator. So I took some of the leftover almond meal that was the byproduct of my fresh almond milk and added all the stuff you would to make a good tuna salad. At this time I added the fish using bonita flakes to bring the fish back in however, I love the No fish version using hemp seeds to enrich the taste and nutrition as well. After making this for weeks  I can truly say  No fish tuna fish is good with everything! No fish on flax crackers, salads, avocado, with chips and salsa and my favorite the No fish tuna melt with goat cheese and Mario’s wheat free sour dough from Ojai Farmers Market or Farmer and the Cook’s wheat free loaf. YUM!
