Get creative. Lean protein, such as tuna, does not have to be limited to traditional tuna sandwiches, but can be played up into low-fat meals with a twist. Here is a recipe that takes just minutes to make and is fun to eat. Serve it with chopsticks to add some extra flair to your table.
2 cans or pouches (5 ounces) of tuna, drained and flaked
8 cups cooked rice
1 cup cooked julienned carrot
2 cups cooked broccoli florets
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce (to taste)
Prepare rice according to package directions. Set aside. In sauce pan, steam carrots and broccoli in water about 10 minutes until tender crisp. Heat teriyaki sauce in microwave to warm. Serve rice, tuna and vegetables in small bowl with warmed teriyaki sauce drizzled to cover.
