Eating healthfully doesn’t have to be tasteless or boring. Lower the fat and increase the protein in chicken or tuna salad by skipping the mayo and subbing in either greek yogurt or cottage cheese. My personal preference is the cottage cheese substitution b/c it has slightly more protein, try half the carbs, medicine and a third of the sugar than Greek yogurt. I also prefer the way it makes the chicken or tuna salad taste, salve since it’s less tart than yogurt. If you think the texture will bother you, opt for the Greek yogurt. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this healthy spin. If you are reducing your carbs, try putting it over a salad rather than eating it as a sandwich.
Recipe: canned chicken breast, mixed with fat free cottage cheese, chopped Thai lime almonds, dried cranberries, pickles and/or banana peppers, sriracha and black pepper to taste.
