Expert Tips

“Great low-calorie lunch with a lot of veggies, and the pineapple and toasted pecans make it taste great! I use the tuna in pouches, whole wheat bread with 5 grams of fiber per slice, and add a bowl of berries or peaches.” Lori S.

Be sure to choose tuna that is packed in water, not oil. By choosing water-packed tuna, you can save 70 calories and 6 grams of fat per 3-ounce serving. By combining tuna—already containing Omega-3 fatty acids—with pecans, you get a little more bang for your buck, on the nutrition front.
