Tuna Rules

June 10th, 2007 · No Comments ·


Every one of us has had the experience of running short on time or just being lazy to make lunch the night before work or school. As always, we all have ended up paying ten bucks for a tuna wrap or sandwich that barely has enough tuna to fill us up during the middle of the day. Don’t worry, I will save you the time and not lecture you about saving money here. However, one of the biggest advantages from making yourself a lunch is that you can use your imagination and play around with the recipe while keeping your food healthy and delicious. I get bored of the usual tuna sandwich with mayo ( reduced fat or Smart Balance’s canola oil mayo ). To add some flavor to my tuna wrap, I use spicy mustard, chopped basil, and hot sauce to bring the taste of tuna up a notch. For those of you who can’t tolerate spicy food, you may try honey mustard or dijon mustard. I find mustard to be a must whenever I make a sandwich because of its tangy flavor that runs through my nostrils when I take a big bite. In addition, mustard generally has only 5 calories per serving. What’s not to like if you can have a great tasting sandwich or wrap without adding the unnecessary calories!
