Tuna, it's what's for lunch



And immediately, i think, ugh, crap, i hate goopy tuna sandwiches. I'm not a fan of mayo, like at all. In fact, mayo sits up at the top of my very short 'foods i don't like' list. But i'm trying to put more fish into my diet, so i'm going to have it more often for lunch.

First things first, taking the mayo out of the tuna.

Taking tuna from drab to fab wasn't too hard, it just took a little creativity. I just used plain yogurt for creaminess, and tried to make it like my fave curry chicken salad.

1 can tuna in water, drained
1/2 container of fat free plain yogurt
1/2 apple diced
juice of half a lemon
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp curry powder

I ate it open faced on light oatmeal bread toasted. If i had grapes or raisins, i would have also added them, and maybe some chopped nuts too. It turned out pretty good, definitely does not taste like chicken though. lol. But it was fresh and light and crunchy, and its a great starter recipe for making a tuna sandwich something to look forward to. ;)

You know what also works if you don't have mayo or yogurt? fat free sour cream. it gives it a nice punch of flavor and makes it soooooo creamy! :)
