I must admit… I was so ravenous when lunch came around that I neglected to take a photo of the finished product. I, therefore, decided to take a photo of the beautiful scenery surrounding me as I consumed such a delicious, light sandwich for a hot Philadelphian day! This was a last minute, thrown together sandwich, but I was so pleased with the results!
Lemony Tuna Fish Sandwich
One Can Light Tuna Fish
2 to 3 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 TBS fresh lemon juice
Lemon Pepper Seasoning (yum!)
Mix all of the ingredients together and enjoy over 100% Whole Wheat Bread!!
I paired my sandwich with a handful of raw almonds and an organic red delicious apple! Try it, my friends, it is so light, unlike the conventional tuna fish recipes which call for loads of mayo!
Clean Eating Magazine has become my little go-to place for ideas on meals. One breakfast, in particular, that I was eager to try was their spinach, tomato, and egg whites, paired with a slice of dry whole-grain toast. In excitement, I ran to my fridge, prepped a skillet for the cooking and shortly thereafter realized I had no tomatoes (whomp, whomp). Oh well! I thought… I’ll just make the meal sans tomatoes. And it was delish! As you can see below, I had my breakfast with one cup black coffee and two cups of water!
I must admit, it can be awfully difficult to find the motivation to cook for one. It’s easy for me to write it off and think, what’s the point in going to all the trouble for just me?? Practice and good health have become my two answers in this inner-monologue! This dish was ridiculously delicious, I was extremely pleased with it’s turn out. And, what’s even more exciting, is that I have leftovers for dinner tonight!
Many people are not familiar with Quinoa, a very healthy grain. I was talking to my roommate about it last night and and her try some, we came to the conclusion that it can be difficult to distinguish from couscous. So, try it! I promise you won’t be disappointed. It’s a heart-healthy meal that is very pleasing to the palate.
