I remember my Mom making these Easy Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes when I was a kid. And I still love them because not only are they delicious, they are super easy, no cook, quick and Weight Watchers friendly at only 2 WW points (blue plan)!
I grew up on a lot of Weight Watchers and "light" recipes because my Mom cooked healthy food and followed the WW program herself for many years. Honestly, it was just normal healthy eating to me and I never thought much of it.
Weight Watchers Recipes
Sometimes my kids complain about eating Weight Watchers recipes, but they also love many of them. And they don't even realize they are eating a WW recipe half the time anyways. And of course I don't tell them until AFTER they tell me how much they love it. I've lightened up a few of my regular recipes to make them WW friendly and my kids actually like my WW Butter Chicken , WW Creamy Lemon Pasta and WW Blueberry Cornbread better than the original! Seriously, these recipes are so good you'd never even know they are Weight Watchers friendly.
These Gluten-free Stuffed Tomatoes with Tuna are also portable so they make a great lunch on the go! Pack them for yourself or your kids! They are healthy and loaded with protein.

Canned Tuna Benefits
Canned Tuna is such a great source of protein, but it's also economical, easy and makes for quick and healthy meals. Tuna provides an important dietary source of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids needed for good heart health, brain function and normal growth and development. Canned tuna is also good source of selenium, Vitamin D and is low in fat. You can read more about the benefits of canned tuna HERE.

I would also recommend you try my Open faced Tuna Melts and my Mexican Tuna Melts for a quick and easy lunch or dinner! When it's hot this summer, they can both be made in the toaster and microwave, instead of the oven!
So if you are looking for a delicious, healthy easy, quick and Weight Watchers friendly lunch, you'll love these Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes!
