Tuna Spread - Make It A Meal For Under 400 Calories

Yummy! It's a tuna spread, 7 Triscuit Reduced Fat crackers, a sliced roma tomato, and a nectarine. And the whole thing is only 334 calories, and probably 1/2 of your fruit and veggie requirements for the day. Wahoo!!

You make the tuna spread with:
-2 tablespoons Naturally Yours fat free sour cream (the one that looks like a black and white cow, so yummy! it's the BEST fat free sour cream, smooth and tangy)
-1/2 cup Bumble Bee tuna chunk light in water
-1/2 cup chopped celery (you could also add some chopped green onions for just a few extra calories, and 1 tablespoon of sliced almonds for only 45 extra calories)
-1/4 tsp. dried dill

This spread reminds me of a similar recipe that had a cream cheese base I used to make when I was a young teenager. But this tastes awesome, too, and I'm sure has waaaay less fat and calories than the original. This would also be great on a sandwich, or in a pita with lettuce.


  1. That does look yummy! Never thought to use sour cream.

  2. Becky this looks yummy and will spice up my lunch plans for next week. I love the idea of sour cream. Zesty!
