Video: Paleo Tuna Casserole (Whole 30 approved, grain and dairy-free)

I remember visiting my grandmother as a little girl and loving her tuna casserole more than my mom’s because she crunched up potato chips on it. When I began learning about health, I realized the chips cooked in seed oil, tuna high in mercury and cream of mushroom soup was not the basis of a healthy meal. Over the years I’ve tinkered a lot with this recipe and our whole family agrees that this one tastes even better (sorry grandma)!
