Yummy Tuna Sammich

This is a sandwich I practically lived off of when I lost my 65lbs so many, many moons ago.  I need to review and revise the recipe a bit and re-calculate the WW points – it was about 3 points on their old program (2002/2003).  I would often have this with a lower point vegetable soup.

Yummy Tuna Sammich Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp of ultra low fat mayo
  • 1 tbsp of fat free cream cheese
  • 1 can of flaked light tuna in water
  • 1 tbsp chopped green onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped cranberries
  • 1 tbsp chopped pecans
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp sunflower seeds
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • roasted garlic
  • 2 pieces of Sourdough Light Rye
  • sprouts
  • veggies

How to make a Yummy Tuna Sammich:

  1. Drain and flake the tuna in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Add the mayo, green onion, cranberries, pecans, fresh parsley, salt and pepper and mix up to a creamy texture.
  3. Toast the two slices of sourdough rye bread.
  4. Spread the roasted garlic on one slice of toast and the cream cheese on the other.
  5. Add the tuna mixture, fixins and enjoy!


To make this a lower point sandwich, omit the sunflower seeds, pecans and cranberries – these I started adding afterwards and were not part of the original 3 point sandwich I woudl make when I was losing weight.

Usually adding more fresh vegetables to a recipe does not add many calories and helps to fill you up and adds a nutritious punch.
