That would be the Subways 6″ tuna sub.
I am not kidding. You could eat 2 McDonalds cheeseburgers and be under those fat grams!
What’s the culprit?
So, I made over Tuna Salad to create a lunchtime sandwich last week.
(- and I have to say it kicks Subway’s
booty version out of the park.)
It tastes better, it’s healthier and its’s skinnier.
Here’s The Breakdown (And the recipe!):
1 can of albacore tuna in water, drained
Mayo -Use only 1 TBS of Olive Oil Mayo
Swap what would normally be more mayo for 1 TBS of ff Plain Greek Yogurt + 1.5 tsps of yellow mustard
Add in these extra veggies!
1-2 celery stalks, diced
1-2 stalks green onions, diced
1 large carrot, diced
1/4 cup of baby spinach, cut into strips
Season it up!
1/2 tsp of Penzey’s Country French Vinaigrette (or your favorite seasoning)
1/4 tsp each of course sea salt + black pepper
Opt for 1/2 of a piece of all natural sharp cheddar
Go for whole grain, toasted
Less carbs your preference?
Make it a tuna melt with only one piece of bread and put under the broile for a minute or two or until the cheese is nice and bubbly
Voila! Tastes great and it’s prettier too….
Now off to bed after driving 5 hours and training forty new teachers today I am beat down
Make it into a panini or grilled cheese-more emphasis on cheese and less on the tuna. OR try deconstructing the sandwich by serving carrots and celery with a yogurt or hummus dipping sauce and then serving it along grilled cheese with spinach on top.
