This a delicious and simple pita that works well for lunch or supper. It’s even convenient if you are on the go and need a quick healthy option.
-can of chunky or flaked tuna
-low fat/light mayonnaise
-whole wheat pita
-romaine or iceberg lettuce
1. Choose the desired amount of lettuce you want and wash it in a bowl.
2. Cut celery into thin slices. Feel free to use as much celery as you like.
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.
-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.
