Okay, now that 2012 is well under way, (two weeks and counting), the determination to eat healthier is off to a good start.
When opening a can of tuna with the electric opener, tuna "juice" frequently splashes out onto the counter. It's almost impossible to avoid.
The packaged tuna is nice and easy and not at all messy. Actually, it's great to just snip open the package with the scissors, scrape out the insides into a bowl with a butter knife, and prepare.
The other day, to the tuna, I added a little mayo, some chopped tiny gherkin pickles, chopped celery and onions, and a plop of mustard (by mistake).
I happened to be making deviled eggs at the same time as the tuna salad and the mustard was meant for them. However, it actually improved the taste of the tuna salad and made it quite delish.
Tuna salad, in a dish or on a roll with a big pile of lettuce, is a great lunch and one I don't mind repeating day after day.
For a healthy snack, I've been keeping deviled eggs in a plastic container in the fridgie. These I make with a little mayo, dab of mustard, finely chopped onions, and maybe a splash of milk. Add salt, pepper, and a dusting of paprika.
When hunger before meals threatens to lead you to the cookie jar, grab one of these little deviled eggs halves instead. Even one is filling and hits the spot.
Cream and half-and-half for coffee have both been banished from the refrigerator as well as ice cream. Bye bye.
Swimming two to three times a week has also begun again in earnest, after a December hiatus.
So here's to packaged tuna, deviled eggs, and 2012!
