It has been a busy week.  I managed to finish an exam, some school projects, and my day job.  Sometimes, I felt like I really didn’t even have time for lunch.  But as a fatty, I can’t skip lunch.  I need food.  LOL.  Going to the cafeteria would waste me 10 minutes going back and forth, and I may end up with burgers or fries which is not something I would like to have now since I’m trying to eat healthier.  I used to pack leftover for lunch if I was really busy and eat it at my desk. But I do have concerns because I don’t want my office to smell like food.  I like to keep the work environment neutral in smell.  So I started to make tuna fish sandwich instead.  I learned a trick from my friend for making tuna fish sandwich.  To prevent it from getting soggy, I toasted the bread lightly. This made the bread less absorbent.  I also learned to add some celery and onion with the tuna.  I used the 15-grain bread that gave some extra fiber to my meal.  I used light mayonnaise. It was yummy.  It was almost as good as Oliver’s super sandwich. LOL. Their tuna sandwich was so good.  It was soooooo thick stuffed with tons of tuna.  Mm… I missed that. I wish they have a store nearby.

Ingredients:

  • Bread, two pieces (whole wheat, or multi-grain would be healthier)
  • Light mayonnaise, 1.5 Tbsp
  • Canned tuna fish, 1 can (I used the solid tuna fish in water. I recommend that)
  • Celery, 1 stalk
  • Onion, chopped, about 1-2 Tbsp
  • Pepper, a dash

Steps:

  1. Set the toaster to the lightest setting.  Lightly toast the bread.  Set it aside to let it cool down.
  2. Cut celery into dices.  Put it in a bowl.
  3. Finely chopped onion.  Add this to the celery.
  4. Open a can of tuna.  Use the lid of the can to press down the tuna and squeeze out the water from the can.  The more water you get rid of, the better the sandwich would be because a soggy fish sandwich would be yucky.  Or you can use a colander to get rid of the water or whatever works for you.
  5. Add the tuna to the bowl.
  6. Add a dash of pepper and 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise first to see if there is enough sauce to mix everything.  If you need more sauce, add the rest of ½ tablespoon.  Don’t add too much sauce because it will make the sandwich soggy, and it adds more calories. LOL.
  7. Mix all the ingredients well.
  8. Make sure the bread cools down before you add the tuna on it.
  9. Now you can wrap it up on a piece of aluminum foil or sandwich bag. And it is ready to go.
