Don’t you just love a good tuna sandwich? Such a popular sandwich most of us have enjoyed since we were kids. Many of us think that if we order a tuna sandwich in a restaurant, it’s the healthiest, low fat choice, right? The fact is, most restaurants prepare it using oil packed tuna and gobs of regular mayonnaise. Even Subway’s 6-inch sandwich, prepared with reduced-fat mayonnaise, has a shocking 530 calories and 31 grams of fat! Our sandwich happily has 216 calories, 5 grams of fat, 6 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS and even 6 grams of fiber! We’re using a small amount of light mayonnaise and mixing in pickle relish, which really adds flavor and allows you to use a lot less mayo. Our yummy sandwich is perfect for an easy lunch and great for packing a lunch.

    Healthy Benefit
    Tuna is great lean protein when packed in water. It’s rich in omega-3 nutrients, known to raise HDL (good cholesterol) and lower LDL (bad cholesterol).

    You’ll cut the sodium content by rinsing the can of tuna after it’s drained. Open the can, drain the water and while still in the can, run fresh water over the tuna and drain again.

    Shopping Tip
    Oroweat Honey Wheat Sandwich Thins can be found in most large supermarkets. One sandwich thin has 100 calories, 1g fat, and 5g fiber. They come in several flavors with the same nutrition facts. Several brands are available so if you can’t find Oroweat, use one of the others.

    Serving Tip
    We love to serve this tuna sandwich served with a handful of carrot sticks and a handful of baked potato chips.
