Healthier Tuna Melt.


Sometimes I get urges for ooey gooey tuna melts. You know the ones COVERED in cheese? Yeah I can only imagine how horrible the nutrition is on those bad boys. Here is my lighter tuna melt version.

What you will need
3 oz of tuna ( I use different kinds of tuna all the time.. i look for albacore and low sodium starkist is good.)
1-2 tbsp of greek plain yogurt.
2 tbsp of onion
1 tbsp of spicy mustard
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Thomas English Multigrain Muffin (These badboys have 8 grams of dietary fiber)
Laughing Cow Wedge ( I like garlic and herb)
Lettuce Tomato and Onion to dress.

Start off by preheating the oven to 350.
Spread cheese onto English Muffin and bake. Judgement call on how long.. depends on how you like the muffin. I would say 10 minutes.
In the meantime:
Make the “salad” Add tuna, greek yogo, mustard, 2 tbsp of onion,
s+p to taste. Incorporate ingredients. Feel free to add more or less to get your preference.
Once muffin is ready add the tuna salad to one half. Top it with lettuce, tomato, onion.

A healthy protein guilt free lunch. Here are the stats.
