Okay I love Tuna its the only fish that i'll eat which is a good this since its packed with protein and very lean. But I cant seem to eat it unless it is mixed with mayo, And we all know thats not good for you.

I was just wanting to know if anyone may have any tips as to how I can make it less day with adding fat or to many calories, and still have it taste good????

HI There

Here's how i eat tuna fish. You may not like the combo but it's healtier. Use light mayo (Hellman's), relish and mustard that way you are not using alot of mayo because you also need to add mustard and relish but you still get some in there. i love the taste. you can use sweet or regular relish depending on your taste. hope this helps!

Thanks I'll give it a try. I'm am not wanting to really eat anything that comes from a can or box. I will at least try the mustard, I know the spicy brown has no extra calories and it should give it a lil bit of a kick. Thanks for you help it has giving me some ideas. Smile

Hey -
I'm a strange individual, I HATE mayo. Something about the consistency, combined with working in a deli and seeing it come in 10 gallon drums and having to get elbows deep in the containers...

My mayo substitute is fat-free plain Greek yogurt. It sounds strange, but I promise it's really good. If you're using it for something like tuna salad, add a little onion powder, salt and pepper, whatever other seasonings you like. Ive also made "ranch dressing," with it by mixing ranch seasoning for dip in with it.

Thats really nasty.

Were abouts would I find the yogurt. I dont want any foods in my house that is overly prosessed. Do you know if they make it from all natural ingredients?

I mix my tuna with lime and salt. Sometimes I'll add to lettuce and tomatoes.

I mix tuna with many different things... my favorite has to be italian dressing or light ranch. I don't use that much and then put the tuna on a salad.

I like it with italian dressing too. It's good. I'm going to try the yogurt thing though, It does make AWESOME dips. You can also use it as sour cream.

The salsa thing sounds AWESOME. That's going to be dinner tonight!!

They have Greek yogurt pretty much everywhere (except Wal-mart, haven't found it there yet) I think Fage 0% is the best one, and it's just skimmed milk and yogurt cultures. Oikos is pretty decent too. If it's not in your regular yogurt section in the supermarket, look to see if you have an organic section, that's where it hides out in my market.

No I get it in packs but it doesn't give that option on the search. When i say "can" I mean things that are really prosessed. Like soups. that kind a stuff. I just want a more natural diet.

I know it sounded a little weird there didnt it. sorry for the mix up. Smile

I found a great recipe that makes tuna taste good: a "little" low-fat mayo, or greek yogurt, chopped onion, chopped celery, Dijon mustard, sweet pickle relish, chopped cilantro. You can use as much or as little of each ingredient as you like. Unfortunately, I love mayo, so it took a bit of time to get used to this, but now it tastes good to me.
