Spotlight Recipe: Mediterranean Tuna Wrap

by in Healthy Recipes, January 19, 2009

Mediterranean Tuna Wrap
Fruity kalamata olives and olive oil give this tuna tons of flavor (you won’t miss the mayo). Parsley and lemon juice add the perfect amount of freshness. Better still, it’s made with chunk light tuna, which is low in mercury.

    Hi Marie – congratulations on your success. The fat in this recipe comes from heart healthy sources (tuna and olive oil) and of course, it fits within our nutrition guidelines. Click “healthy guidelines” in the About Healthy Eats section for the details. To reduce the sodium, there are some great low sodium and no salt added varieties of tuna available at your grocery store.

    Sounds good but,all that fat. I eat fewer than 10 fat graam a day. What about an alternative to all those olives and olive oil.

    Sunny-
    I wouldn’t worry about the fat too much. In fact, if you are truly only consuming 10 grams of fat or less a day, you may not be able to absorb certain vitamins- A, D, E, K. We need at least 15-25 grams of fat for our body to absorb those fat soluble vitamins.

    Hi Sunny,
    I noticed your comment on the tuna recipe and your concerns about the healthy fat levels. I like to mix tuna with some dijon mustard and some local honey. I load it into a wrap with tons of veggies. This is one of my favorite simple tuna recipes for lunch during the week. Give it a try, and i hope you love it as much as I do!

    Another idea for tuna salad; use some nonfat yogurt, a dab of zesty mustard, a little lemon juice, and some sweet pickle relish. It’s lowfat and you won’t miss oil or mayonnaise!

  8. LINDA says:

    I love Greek tuna salad. I use the same ingredients but I buy tuna packed in olive oil, so I don’t have to add any extra oil. Very tasty!
