Tuna Fish PLUS Anti-Oxidants. Yum.

I have simple tastes, comfort tastes. Tuna Fish sandwiches bring back memories of me and mom - I can close my eyes and see her piling tuna fish atop a saltine cracker. This little meal was invariably topped off with a couple peanut butter or jam crackers.

I had an urge to update and eat this fav today. Here goes ...

Mom's Tuna Fish Sandwich Mine!

Can of Tuna fish Can of Tuna fish
Mayonnaise - Deleted - Used Plain, Low fat "Active Culture Yogurt"
Sandwich bread or saltine crackers Whole wheat sandwich wrap

ADDED: 1 Celery Stock, 1 Diced Carrot, 1/2 Diced "Sweet" Onion & 1 Garlic Clove
2 TBSP Parsley
1 TBSP of the marjoram spice

: The plain yogurt is less caloric and the "active cultures" promote the growth of healthy bacteria in your colon & boosts immunity; the celery stock, carrots and onion add fiber which helps digestion and keep your colon healthy; the sweet onion contains quercetin a powerful anti-oxidant (see below); Garlic is another super anti-oxidant; Parsley is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K. It is also a good source of iron and ... an anti-oxidant! Finally, the spice Marjoram (or lemon balm, ginger and cumin spices) dramatically up the anti-oxidant value of any meal.

Now - about all these anti-oxidants. Bottom-line - Antioxidants help prevent cellular damage, cellular aging and dis-ease.

Gotta love that! Yum.
