Tuna Salad ALA LyonHart

You know, the hardest thing about a diet to me has always been missing things I'm used to and things I love. I've always gone off diets before because I craved the stuff I was keeping from myself, and when I went off I went off big. This time I've been more sucessful by instead of shunning everything, trying to find ways to enjoy things in a healthier manner. Some stuff like bacon cheeseburgers are notably off the list, sure, but there is plenty of good things out there to sub with. For example I love hot dogs on the weekend. It's easy to get fat free turkey hot dogs pretty much anywhere that taste great (the fat free beef hotdogs taste like a dead dog's dick, be warned) and a can of bushes vegetarian baked beans, or the store brand equivalant, which is fat free as well. These both do have a little too much sodium and sugars and such, so i stick to the weekend for those, but there is one compromise recipe that is so healthy I've worked it into my weekday regimen with delicious and satisfying results. I feel bad for you if you've read all this to this point and hate tunafish, cause I love it, and that is what my recipe is for, a satisfying tuna sandwich with almost no fat, and a near trivial number of calories that tastes great and wont leave you hungry. Without any further ado, Tuna Salad ALA LyonHart!

Now I know what you are saying "hey what was that again, you mumble mouthed prick?" well here is a quick recap in text form.

You need...

2 cans of chunk light tuna (or white, whatever racists...)
2 Tbsp of Pickle Relish
1/2 Tbsp of Dijon Mustard
1/2 Tbsp of Light Mayo (or full mayo, its so little it dont really matter)
1/2 cup of plain non-fat yogurt

You mix all that up real good, get everything nice and evenly distributed, put it in a tupperware, and you've got yourself 5 sammiches ready to roll for the week. Toss it on some whole grain bread (with no high fructose corn syrup, god dammit!) and enjoy.


  1. i feel like this is missing celery, onion, and garlic. a little red wine vinegar even.

  2. hey you can put anything you want in it, any vegetables or spices arent going to add any fat or bad stuff id iamgine, i would wait on the vinegar at least tho because with the pickle relish, you get a little of that tang...
