Project #267 – Tuna Lunch Bowl
Clark’s job moved locations and now he is in the position to drive home for lunch once or twice a week. It’s been good for me as my day has been divided in a way that is a lot more healthy. I’ll usually work without stopping to eat until 3 or 4 o’clock if left on my own, meaning that I eat only two small meals a day. Not good.
Still, we’re both short on time, so it’s nice to eat things that can be prepared in less than 5 minutes. Today, I put rice in the rice cooker early in the morning. Then when Clark arrived I mixed up a quick batch of tuna with a little low-fat mayo and served that on a piece of seaweed on top of the rice. For garnish I sprinkled the whole thing with roasted sesame seeds.
For those of you who are a little weirded out by seaweed, I say just give it a try. It’s like eating potato chips that don’t make you feel bad and give you a full serving of green vegetables. I like eating by itself for a snack; the salty-umami flavor is divine, but it’s wonderful in a lot of dishes. Plus, it doesn’t need to be cooked or prepared in any way. Just apply it and enjoy.
