Recipe of the Week - Champion Nutrition USA - Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes

Looking for a fast but flavorful high-protein meal? A throwback to one of my childhood comfort foods, I tweaked Grandma's recipe and the result is a training-friendly, and tasty, quick meal.

Chelle's Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes
serves 2

4 Whole tomatoes (not roma). Can sub 2 very large tomatoes.
1 15-oz can Tuna packed in water, no added salt
1 4-oz can sliced olives, drained and rinsed
2 oz plain greek yogurt
1/4 tsp black pepper (or white pepper)
4 Tbsp Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 450
Core 2 LARGE tomatoes (or 4 normal sized ones - not plum tomatoes), and spoon out insides leaving a shell.
Spray a small baking dish with olive oil.
Mix tuna with 4 Tbsp Plain Greek Yogurt (0, 1 or 2%)
Mix in 4 oz can of sliced olives, drained and rinsed.
Divide mixture between the two tomatoes.
Top with 1 Tbsp Mozarella cheese each.
Bake for 10 minutes, check for doneness, bake additional 5 if needed.
Allow to cool slightly.

I would have a photo of the finished meal, but we were so hungry we dove right in!
