StarKist Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water

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.

NUTRITION FACTS

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!

Who doesn't love a good tuna sandwich every once in awhile? Canned fish like tuna and salmon is such a quick, easy to prepare sources of protein, but unfortunately, it gets a bit boring for my palate after a while. Apparently, I'm not alone in this thinking and the folks at Starkist got the memo, because they have gotten creative - first by introducing new "pouch packaging" (no more liquid to mess with), and then by introducing flavored varieties. I'll be honest and say I never had canned salmon, but the addition of mango and chipotle piqued my interest.

I made the whole thing onto a sandwich and didn't add any condiments, so I would experience the full flavor - or lack thereof. YUM! I was thoroughly impressed. Each bite contains the taste of salmon, paired with sweet mango and a little spicy chipotle kick at the end. These flavors married beautifully, and just as I suspected, no mayo was required.
