Starkist chunk light tuna in a pouch

Thursday, November 14, 2013

I know I've said this before but I hate fish. I can't stand the taste or the texture. That having been said I bought some of these Starkist chunk light tuna pouches on sale at the grocery store and they've been staring me in the face for a few weeks. I had one today mixed with a tbsp of greek yogurt, a tsp of pepper and half a mashed avocado on a slice of ezekiel bread toasted (open faced). I devoured it! It was pretty good actually. Now all of it did not fit on the bread so I'm scooping it up with carrot sticks, pepper slices and celery sticks but I could eat this a few times a week easily.

Now ... is there something wrong with it? Does this not count as a serving of oily fatty fish? I can't really find anything that says it's not. Mercury is not an issue unless I eat more than ten of these pouches a week and that is never going to happen because I just don't like fish that much.

Does anyone know of any reason why I couldn't use this as my two servings a week? I'd still supplement it with fish oil but I'd much rather get in the habit of getting my nutrients from the foods I eat than supplements.

    It sounds good to me, Mary, but I'm not a dietitian. I'm trying to incorporate more avocado in. I never thought to mix it with the tuna in a pouch. I'm adding it to my grocery list. Thank you.

    I use those too! Look for the pouches with the fewest ingredients and you are good! emoticon
