Re: tuna fish

pesto, which is even tastier with canned wild-caught salmon.

Re: tuna fish

somehow American's have taken an extremely healthy and tasty sauce and turned it into awful tasting diet killer.

Reclaim mayo! Make your own:

1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1 cup grapeseed oil
1 T. fresh lemon juice
1 T. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. dry mustard

Place the egg, mustard, salt, pepper, lemon juice and vinegar in the blender. Turn on the motor and add the oil in a slow, thin stream. Refrigerate.Takes about 5 minutes to make, as you can see--very easy. Keeps about a week.

Re: tuna fish

Indeed, homemade mayo DESTROYS even the best mayo you can buy at the store.

Also, for tuna, chicken salad or any other food that uses a mayo-based dressing or sauce I replace half of the mayo with plain yogurt. You will never know the difference.

Re: tuna fish

I'll second the Guac. Half an avocado usually does the trick with some healthy carbs, fiber and good fat.

Re: tuna fish

I have another Tuna question, Is it myth or fact the whole concern with Mercury levels in Tuna. I generally eat approximately 5 cans of tuna per week. I remember seeing a Mythbusters with John Stousel on 20/20 a couple years ago where he tested this out by following some guy who ate a ton of fish for a week. They tested his mercury levels throughout. I couldn't remember if STousel concluded it was a myth.... I want to say he did. I think he proved you had to eat a ridiculously enourmous amount of fish to have high mercury levels.

Re: tuna fish

why do you need to "mix" it with anything?

I've never liked mayo and never had a problem eating (canned) tuna without it.

I agree with Sean on this one. Too me eating is all about feeding the machine. I just want to get it done and over with as quickly as possible, unless it's a cheat meal or binge day..ha.

I've had that same view several times in my life. I've gone an entire year with no cheat meals of any kind, busted my hump to make a weight class, set my alarm to wake up through the night just to eat, etc....Eating became such a chore I hated it, dreaded it.

In order to stay sane and on track I had to add some variety.
