Multi-millionaire fitness entrepreneur Kayla Itsines has revealed the “lazy lunch” she swears to stay lean and toned.
The 31-year-old Adelaide likes to whip up a midday meal of basmati rice, tuna, kewpie mayonnaise, sriracha mayonnaise, toasted sesame seeds, seaweed, pepper, soy sauce and avocado.
‘It’s my lazy lunch. It’s so easy and so delicious,’ Kayla posted on Instagram.

The 31-year-old from Adelaide likes to prepare a midday meal consisting of basmati rice, tuna, kewpie mayonnaise, sriracha mayonnaise, toasted sesame seeds, seaweed, pepper, soy sauce and avocado (end result shown)
To make it yourself, just combine the ingredients in a bowl and it can be served hot or cold.
The meal is as nutritious as it is tasty, with the tuna providing protein, vitamins and minerals, including B-complex vitamins, vitamins A and D and much-needed iron.
Meanwhile, the basmati rice provides complex carbs and the avocado provides a healthy dose of healthy fats.
To replicate it for yourself, all you have to do is combine the ingredients in a bowl and it can be served hot or cold (the meal in progress pictured)
While many were okay with the meal, others worried that Kayla wouldn’t eat tuna while pregnant (pictured); another states that you can eat tuna when you are pregnant in moderation
Thousands of people who have seen this simple dish have been inspired.
‘Omg this is one of my favorite combos. Do this tomorrow,” one person commented.
“Yum, thanks for the inspiration,” added another.
But not everyone was on board with the idea, with some wondering if the fitness guru could eat tuna given that she is currently pregnant with her second child.
‘Expect. But I thought pregnant women shouldn’t eat tuna. Am I being lied to? a woman posted.
Another clarified: ‘They can have it in moderation’.
It is generally safe for all population groups, including pregnant women, to eat 2-3 servings of any type of tuna or salmon per week, canned or fresh.
However, due to the high mercury content, women are advised not to eat more than this.

Previously, Kayla explained why she had to turn her two-year-old daughter Arna’s oats blue.
Kayla said that right now Arna is obsessed with the color blue – so she had to turn her oats turquoise using blueberries to make sure the toddler got her breakfast.
“Like any mom, figuring out what my toddler will and won’t eat every day has been a process. Often people ask me what Arna eats and if she is picky…I say yes and no!!’ Kayla wrote and shared a series of images.
“She’s never picky about what she eats…but when it comes to the LOOK, SHAPE or COLOR of her food, that’s where the tantrums start!!
“Last week my sweet daughter who loves to eat oats decided that she only likes to eat BLUE oats anymore. Honestly this kid.
To make the oats blue, Kayla chose to add blueberries mixed in with the oats and milk.
Eating fish during pregnancy
* Fish is a highly nutritious food and an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D, iodine and omega-3 fatty acids. All of these nutrients provide important health benefits for you and your baby when you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
* The problem with eating fish is that the high mercury content of certain types of fish can damage the nervous system of babies or young children.
*While all fish contain methylmercury, most fish in Australian waters have very low mercury levels. For most people, this mercury from fish is not a health risk.
* Australian Dietary Guidelines advise eating one or two fish meals per week for good health. There are only a few types of fish that authorities recommend limiting in the diet – these are billfish (swordfish/broadbill and marlin), shark/snowflake, orange roughy, and catfish.
* Pregnant women, women planning a pregnancy and young children should limit their consumption of shark (snowflake), broadbill, marlin and swordfish to no more than one serving per fortnight with no other fish to consume during this fortnight.
*Two to three servings (one serving equals 150 grams) of other types of fish are completely safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women or women planning a pregnancy.
* 2-3 servings per week of fish with lower levels of mercury (see below) are completely safe.
