3.  What I like to do is take 2 full cans of tuna (170g each before drained), drain them, mix in 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise, and then add in the celery.  This makes 2 servings.  I find a good rule of thumb is 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise for each can of tuna.

4.  Put your pita together and enjoy!  Add some pepper if you like.

Tips:

-Read the ingredients for your pita.  Generally speaking, though, whole wheat pitas are just whole wheat flour, water, yeast, a bit of salt, and possibly calcium propinate.

-DO NOT buy fat-free mayonnaise.  Most fat-free mayonnaise’s have lots of sugar to give it flavor.  Opt for a light version instead.

-Try and opt for lower sodium cans of tuna.  The ingredients should only be tuna, water, and a bit of salt.  Stay away from flavored tunas as  they tend to loaded with sugar from the sauces.
