View Full Version : Tuna and mayo?

What is the 'healthiest mayo'? By this I mean no soybean oil. Is there a better version?

I dont understand why u want mayo with your tuna, just it it right out of the can. The mayo will only make u fat.

Are you kidding me? First off tuna+mayo is awesome, tastes 10 times better than plain. And as for the "it will make you fat" statement, it's very low in saturated fat's and has fair amounts of unsaturated fats. Unless your one of the crazed people that thinks fat will make you fat, I can't possibly begin to understand your reasoning for this.

Best foods makes a low fat mayo... it's in a green bottle so check it out if you want.

If you're not worried about carbs I like to take 1 english muffin split in halves, mix a can of tuna or chicken with a little of the fat free mayo, and put half the can on each half of the muffin.

Top with some shredded cheese if you want and stick it under the broiler until the cheese is melted or the muffins are a little toasted.

They make health nut muffins that are whole grain and they're good.... deffinatly a good meal if you want to mix things up a little.

Tuna mixed with cottage cheese is pretty damn good.

mr fit - you gotta be kiddin.

Manveet - that's what I have done before.

Ttbb - Exactly. I want a better souce of fat though. I guess I will have to make my own mayo.

Body - here it's soybean oil.

Icergrrl - thanks but no thanks. :D

Manveet - that's what I have done before.

continue with it then. If you want a better source of fat eat unsalted, plain peanuts. I buy a s*** load of shelled peanuts every week, they are a very good source of polyunsaturated (spl) fat.

Oh sh*t I skipped GIS post...I think what I will do is add about an ounce or so of shredded cheese on top of it. Right now I'm not having my tuna with carbs but that recipe sounds excellent. Good idea.

Manveet - they don't beat flax or fish oil though! Yea peanuts are a good source of fat. Almonds are my favorite nuts though. You ever try natty almond butter? Good stuff I tell ya.

Don't bother putting mayo on tuna... put salsa.... hmmmm makes it taste great. Think I'll go eat a can right now. :burger:

Yeah, tuna with olive oil is awesome too. One tablespoon makes it nice and moist and no more dry chalky taste. I'm not sure which I like more, mayo or olive oil, I definetly alternate.

Oh dear God! I just tried tuna and olive oil... I thought I was going to throw up! I used a table spoon of olive oil with a can and it was horrible.

I think I'll stick to dealing with the carbs associated with two slices of 12 grain bread, load it with veggies, and get my tuna that way.

Some people just don't appreciate good food:). Oh well, I'll be chowing down 2 cans of tuna and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in about a hour, you in?

Tuna mixed with scrambled eggwhites is nummy.

I found Safflower mayo at the store....and I must say, I luv it. 1 Tbspn has 11g fat, with only 1 g sat'd. Additionally, it is super high in Vit E and tastes good. This is my choice for mayo.

raniali - I will look for safflower oil mayo at the 'health food store'. I'm sure I will find it. Thanks.

Everyone else thank you for your suggestions.
