Tasty Ideas For Canned Tuna

If there’s one food that you should try and make good use of as you go about your fat loss diet plan, canned tuna is definitely it.

Canned tuna is great because not only is it a high source of protein and low in carbs and fats, but it’s incredibly fast to prepare as well.  After all, there is virtually no prep work required. You simply open up the can, serve, and you’re all set to go.

So this said, why is it that so many people fail to make this a part of their diet plan?  The biggest reason why many don’t include it in is simply because they don’t exactly enjoy the taste of it.

With a little creativity though, you can find tastier ways to prepare it that will have you enjoying including it in your diet plan.

Let’s look at a few for you to consider.

This will be a relatively low calorie way to not only help meet your protein needs for the day, but speed up the metabolism as well.

Eating spicy food such as chilli peppers will boost your metabolic rate for a few hours after you eat it, so can assist with the overall weight loss process.

To prepare this one, simply mix together one egg white with your can of tuna along with any other spices or herbs that you desire.

Form into a burger patty and then place on the grill to cook.  Serve it in a whole grain bun if you aren’t doing a low carb diet or over a leaf of lettuce if you are.

You can also make tuna meatballs using the same method as well, if that’s what you prefer.

To prepare this one, you’ll want to cook up one cup of whole wheat pasta, drain, and then toss your tuna over top.  Next, either sprinkle on top some low fat cheddar cheese, or if you prefer, top with about half a cup of tomato sauce and then add on a quarter cup of cottage cheese.  Place this under the broiler to allow to melt slightly so that you get cheesy tuna pasta.

Serve with a little oregano on top and you’ll have a delicious meal in just ten minutes.

So there you have some of the top ideas that you can do with tuna to help enhance its taste and add it back into your diet plan.  Make sure you get a little creative yourself and see what other ideas you can come up with.
