I'm a tuna newbie. Do you eat the tuna straight out of the can? Do you mix in some mayonnaise and/or mustard and make a sandwich? How do you eat your tuna?

With a plastic fork....

Eat it and drink lots of water, and forget the mayo

Don't put mayo on your tuna. Try miss dash, or that bam stuff if you like it spicy, honey mustard is good too.

When I "have" to choke the stuff down, I make it into a patty with an egg white, fry it in a non-stick pan and kill the sucker with mustard...... other than that, my brother-in-law is a tuna fisherman, so I get tuna steaks from him in the summer and grill 'em on the BBQ -- much better than canned stuff. If I'm on the go, I'll eat it out of the can and swallow it with water. I really really REALLY don't like fish! The price you pay to build a better body..... :)

Usually straight out of the can right before bed. If I have it during the day I mix it with rice or pasta and I can't even taste it. Mixing it with salsa is pretty good as well.

I don't like fish either (but I love fishing...go figure). I bought some fat-free mayo with real low calories and it works fine. I like to cut up celery into small pieces and put it in there for a little crunch.

But damn, I can't stand opening those cans on a hot day and having to smell that pent up fish odor for 2-3 seconds.

Straight out of the can or a tuna salad sandwhich with the contents being:

tbsp Mayo
tbsp dill bits relish
Some pepper
Some vinegar
a green onion chopped into it

That I'll give me two sandwhiches - 2 meals if I have some cottage cheese on the side. I'll often have a pickle with them.

1st I put a clothespin on my nose then I eat it with whatever is available or just drain it and choke it down. Just this week I reached the point where straight tuna from the can doesn't make me gag so keep choking it down, it gets less distasteful every time you eat it.

I gave up cans for bags o' tuna. I put about 2 tablespoons of low fat honey mustard dressing in the bag, shake it up and eat. Convenient, protein packed and great-tasting.

Good tuna snack:
tuna
cottage cheese
whole wheat bread

Toast the bread, mix the tuna/cottage cheese meanwhile, spread tuna mixture on bread to make 2 openfaced sandwiches and enjoy. :)

I dress it with homemade vinegrette - basic recipe:

1/3 cup olive or canola oil
3 tbl spoon wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
I usually add lemon juice, dijon mustard and sometimes honey.

It only takes a couple of minutes to make and tastes great on tuna.

I eat my tuna outta the can with vingarette dressing on top. So good, I didn't even know how good it was going to be.

For me I stay away from solid white chunk.... talk about disgusting/dry crap!!!

This is what makes people haters of tuna.

Try StarKist LIGHT in water. sure its got 3 g less protein, and 30 less calories as well as less cholesterol and sodium but get over it.

I buy the packs of 3oz cans with the snap of lids. I drain them, put about 1/3oz of salad dressing (Kraft fat free Ceasar is my fav)

I eat a can at 11:30, 2, and 5.
Breakfast is at 8:30 and a snack at 9:30
dinner at 8:30
