tuna sandwich

There is no need to exclude bread from your diet if you want to achieve weight loss. Rather choose whole wheat / low GI / increased protein alternatives (like soy and linseed). This is often the easiest to prepare for work / school. Try these delicious recipes:

Tuna Mayonnaise with a twist

(Serves 2)

Ingredients:

4 Slices bread, whole wheat / low GI (I prefer soy and linseed)

2 Tbsp. Mayonnaise, Trim / Light

1 Tin Tuna, in brine, drained

1 Spring onion, small, chopped

6 – 8 Basil leaves, fresh, chopped

Chili flakes, to taste (*Optional)

1 Tbsp. Mozzarella cheese, per sandwich (*Optional)

 

OR

 

4 Slices bread, whole wheat / low GI (I prefer Soy and linseed)

1 ½ Tbsp. Mayonnaise, Trim / Light

1 Tin Tuna, in brine, drained

1 tsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. Thyme, fresh

1 Tbsp. Parmesan, finely grated

Chili flakes, to taste (*Optional)

 

Instructions:

Preheat a toaster / sandwich grill / snackwich maker.

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Spoon half of the mixture on one slice of bread and the remaining half on the other slice of bread.

Put the slice of bread (topping facing up) on the toaster, cover with the other slice of bread, close the toaster and toast until golden brown.

If you do not have a snackwich maker – you can use a pan on a stove top (turn the sandwich halfway to ensure it turns golden brown on both sides). Or, if you prefer, you can toast the bread in a normal toaster before adding the topping.

Enjoy!
