This prepackaged tuna is delicious. You can add to it with celery, mayo, and egg to make it more filling. I put it on my mixed greens with tomatoes and add a little Brianna's Real French Vinaigrette dressing. Whole package is 4.5 oz, 180 calories, 42 g protein, 0 carbs. Found near canned tuna in grocery aisle.4
I've been keeping a grocery sack in the pantry, & gradually adding items for the Food Bank. When it's full, I'll drive it over & dontate. Using the ice cream, candy, chips, extra portions, and treat money I would have been spending on myself is pretty painless to share. When shopping, I grab something healthy for the bag, like canned tuna, soups, canned beans, etc. It puts a smile on my face, and hopefully on someone else's, while shrinking the waistline.
