The Tuna Solution
Tuna fish is a good, high-protein, low carbohydrate food, but it can be inconvenient to eat if you are on the go. It has to be prepared and refrigerated or you have to eat it out of the can (and you may have to drain it). While grocery shopping yesterday, I found a good solution: Bumble Bee Easy Peel Sensations. This is classic Bumble Bee tuna fish in a 5oz, easy peel-open can, seasoned in three flavors- Lemon & Pepper, Sundried Tomato & Basil, and Spicy Thai Chili. Simply peel the foil off and you are ready to eat. So far, I have only eaten the Spicy Thai Chili. I liked the taste and texture.
Nutritionally, they offer: 30-36grams of protein, 6-8grams of fat, and 4-18grams of carbohydrates (the Spicy Thai Chili has 18grams, while the others only have 4grams).
