Eva Tries to Cook: Tuna Salad Sandwich

Thursday, January 16, 2014

One of the perks of living independently is that I get to learn new stuff everyday, particularly ways on making my life easier. Like shortcuts or life hacks. Haha. More importantly, I am consistently learning new ways of preparing food. And no, buying something in a nearby 7-Eleven store and microwaving it doesn't count.

During my first few weeks of independence, I used to just eat outside or have something delivered from a fast food resto. But I've realized that this was quite costly and very, very unhealthy. And since I've sworn off unhealthy eating habits, I learned how to prepare my own meals. This is one of those recipes which I personally like and recommend since it is healthy and, of course, yummy.

  • a can of 155g tuna in vegetable oil
  • a small 80ml sachet of mayonnaise
  • salt
  • pepper
  • bread (whole wheat is preferred)
  • fresh ripe tomatoes

 What to do:
  1. Drain the oil from the tuna, and then mix in the mayo.
  2. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Put generous amounts of the tuna and mayo mix in the bread. Add some tomato slices and voila!

This actually makes for a complete and very healthy meal. You get carbohydrates from the bread, you get lean protein from the tuna, and you get the essential vitamins that tomatoes contain. Also, it is easy and quick to prepare as it only takes 10-15 minutes. It doesn't take up much time so it's perfect when you want to bring your own lunch to work or school, so you can avoid eating out and avoid all the fried and oily stuff. I suggest you try it. :)

  2. I wish I ate tuna - this sounds great and healthy! I almost always pack my own lunch for work to save those calories, but I eat like such a bird (pistachios, granola, etc).
