Albacore *IS* tuna, and some folks traditionally put mayo in tuna, so plain yogurt would be a substitute for mayo, and the same goes for cottage cheese, still would not feed that brown "cat food" type of tuna to my dog!! It is just nasty!

I use the solid white albacore tuna, it is not wet or mushy at all. It costs nearly $2 per can, (Bumblebee Gold), but I cannot stomach the other kind, it is nasty, like cat food.

The solid white albacore tuna is completely edible straight out of the can, I squish the lid down and dump out the water. I put chopped tomatoes salt and pepper, and eat it with celery sticks, it is good. You might add ground herbs for extra flavor.

I have done it with cottage cheese also, and one time tried plain yogurt. It is the quality of the tuna that must be the problem from what you said, and nothing will cover that up, pay the big bucks, reap the rewards.

If you have a supply of the mushy stuff in your pantry, I would give it to a food bank. (or a cat)

You could always put it in a sieve and let it sit over a bowl for a bit to see if you can get extra water out (even press down). Or pile it in a paper towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out the water.

I've backslidden... I reached my goal and was now maintaining, but now I need to lose 10 pounds and firm up.

I just use the lid of the can to press in and hold over the sink upside down. It gets the majority of the water out.

1/2 a whole wheat pita, 1 TBSP hummus, 3 oz. tuna

I had that for lunch today. It was pretty good. I haven't had mayo in weeks. I'm really suprised at all of the things I thought I would miss but I don't!

Mix your tuna with some fat free cream of mushroom soup, put on a nice whole wheat hamburger bun (lightly cover bun top with some margarine, butter or whatever you use) and then bake at 350 degrees until bun is a little hard. Delicious!

I like mine on top of lettuce (especially romaine or iceberg) along with tomatoes. It really tastes yummy just like that, or you can add some lemon (and salt). Be careful on the salt... I tend to go overboard!

Tuna is one of my favorites. I love it on crackers or mixed with pasta. You might even try it on pizza. I like to try new pizza creations with random ingredients. Just make sure you use the whole wheat pizza crust or make a personal pizza with a whole wheat tortilla. I made a tuna fettuccine with broccoli once. It was super refreshing and yummy! It's great on top of baby spinach leaves with some chopped apples, almonds, and a little drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette. :)

I throw mine in a blender and add ff yogurt and some milk.... NOT!!!

I love, love, love tuna. I like to try different variations but I keep it on Ezekiel bread or on top of salads.

Add grapes, walnuts, celery, etc. Can't wait to see what others post to add to my variety.

Have a great day!

I like to cook up some whole wheat pasta- cool- and then add some canned tuna to cut up veggies such as pepper, celery, green onions, tomatoes, cucumber (whatever you like). Then I make a dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, pomegranate juice, orange juice, and fresh dill. It is great for lunches.

You can also combine tuna with bread crumbs and some seasoning and cook them like you would crab cakes.
