    Who has a simple recipe for canned tuna? I prepack my meals for the day in containers so I can eat right at work( construction site).
    I need fresh ideas for ingredients to mix with tuna. Also this: At super wal mart they sell sweet potatoes double washed and packaged in plastic wrap. You just put it in the microwave for 5 minuts and its done. Very handy. I cook a couple and mix them with cinnamon andsplenda and carry them to work. Tastes like sweet potato pie filling!
    They are thesame price as regular sweet potatoes. Thanks.

    I just tried this today and it was good, not sure if it fits into your diet plan.

    I just sprinkle 2 crumbled saltine crackers over 7oz of tuna. To me it tasted kind of like chilli.

    This is what I bring for lunch when I don't have chicken breast cooked in the morning.

    1 can of Solid White Albacore Tuna
    2 Tbsp of Evoo
    2 Tbsp of Lemon juice
    Salt & Pepper to taste

    I just eat it straight after I mix everything together well. You can substitute the tuna with canned salmon which I do often. It tastes pretty good and you get your protein quick and easy. Much better than drinking a protein shake.

    I like cold pasta, tuna, and a fat free ranch-style dressing (I like kraft's ff honey dijon).

    Replace the cold pasta with cold mashed sweet potato (cook it, mash it a little bit with a fork, stick it in the fridge overnight) for a great protein & carb meal.

    I'm trying something new today. I've added 2 tsp. of horseradish sauce to my can of tuna. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm hoping it just adds a little kick compared to mayo or miracle whip.

    This is GOOD, its about the only way i can eat tuna anymore! For even more kick try slicing a jalapeno[sp] pepper in there, or if you are REALLY watching the carbs you can add the horseradish and tabasco sauce or whatever kind of hot sauce you like.

    Carbs aren't a big problem for me at this point. I'm all for slicing peppers into tuna, also.

    I actually stumbled across the horseradish thing this morning when I couldn't find the miracle whip in the 'fridge. Lucky me!

    A very small bit (teaspoon or so) of light mayo and some curry powder... mmmm! Dice in some veggies like carrot onion celery etc.

    Curry and tuna go very well together.

    Or - try a drop of sesame oil with a little garlic and ginger powder, some diced green onion, and a dash of soy sauce, pack some brown rice, too. If you want to get really fancy sprinkle tsp of sesame seeds on the brown rice.

    Mix tuna with egg white and fry it into a pattie. Put anything you want on it (or spices in it), eat it in some pita or whole wheat bread.

    try a can of salmon for a change

    mix tuna with some chopped up hard boiled egg, white only if you want... or just use HALF the yolk.

    Get some of the low carb/whole wheat mac n cheese, mix in the tuna. It's even good cold if you don't have microwave access.

    This wasn't enough horseradish for me. Today I'm going for 3 tsp. horseradish and 1 tsp. mustard.

    I've been throwing drained tuna and salsa together, and packing a couple tortillas and sometimes a few spinach leaves for crunch in ziplock bags for a quick fish taco (or burrito, depending on how you wrap it.)

    Paper napkins advised if your salsa's juicy, as it gets drippy but tastes good.

    This recipe has to be the most common, but heres mine. I usually eat tuna 6 days a week, so the ingredients you need are:
    • 6 cans of tuna
    • 1 bell pepper (whatever color you like)
    • 6 tsp of Micracle Whip
    • (Optional) 1/2 cup of diced lean ham cubes

    Mix everything together in a medium bowl. Put the mixture into a tupperware container. Put into 2 slices of rye, wheat, or pumpkernickel bread. And PRESTO!! you have a nifty tuna sandwich. Now since you used 6 cans that means you can have 6 meals from that. Besides the minimal amount of miracle whip, its pretty much a pro/carb meal so its great for a PWO meal. ENJOY.
