|Well I'm on day 6 of being healthy jamie. It's going great... no troubles so far. I don't have a scale so I don't know if I've lost any weight but I know that just from dieting in my past, you usually lose a lot of water weight in the first 2 weeks. I don't really care about what a scale says anyway...it's going to be in my clothes that I'll be able to tell. The reason I feel great is because I'm learning how to only eat when I'm hungry. I haven't really done that in years..sounds funny but it's true. For the past 2 nights I've had the most tasty dinner ever and I wanted to share it with you. This is for those of you who like Tuna but are getting board with just a plain ol' tuna sandwhich. Also good if you're going low carb. You can omit the crackers if you want.
Jamie's Tuna Cakes
1 can of tuna, drained
1 egg (you can use just the egg white if you want to go low-fat)
1 tbs mayonnaise (I used fat free but whatever you have is fine)
1 tsp Dijon style mustard
a squeeze of lemon juice (this adds a ton to it)
Salt and Pepper
4 crackers crushed up into fine crumbs (I used Breton Whole Wheat low fat Crackers)
mix that all together, makes 4 patties. Roll them into a ball, about the size of an egg, then flatten them between your hands, like you would while making a hamburger. Lay down on hot frying pan. Do this to all of them, cook about 3-4 min on each side or until slightly browned.
(not my photo but similar to what they should turn out like)
