If I could eat tuna for lunch everyday, I would. But fear of mercury poisoning means I have to limit my tuna intake to 2-3x a week - and not every week. After many moons of eating canned tuna, I have come to be partial to a brand or two, and one of my favorites brands to buy is StarKist Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water.
A serving size, which is about 2 ounces drained from a 5 ounce can, provides 70 calories, 2 grams of total fat, which includes 0.5 grams of saturated fat (3% and 2% of the daily value), 190 mg sodium (8% of the DV), no carbohydrates and 13 grams of protein!
I like Starkist because when I drain the water - I just press the lid down after I've cut it open - it's always chunky, not soft and mushy. Tuna tastes like .. tuna, but what makes it delicious is what you add to it. I always add a little low-fat mayonnaise and Pace Picante Medium Sauce - I use this in everything!

As I said before, StarKist Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water is one of my favorite foods to have for lunch. Plus 13 grams of protein and 70 calories - I love it!
