Tonight was my first light run outside since the marathon on sunday and while my legs still had some soreness, it felt good to get out there. We probably only did about 2 miles before stopping to do some pushups and situps on the grass. We walked home from there and my legs felt sore, but not that bad. I am starting to feel a little crazy for signing up for this marathon in 4 weeks - ahhh.
For dinner, I made something simple, but very tasty - tuna melts! I am pretty picky with my tuna especially because I dont like to taste the mayonaise, so my tuna is always more dry with lots of mustard. I thought I would share the recipe.
- 2 cans solid white tuna in water (drained)
- 6 garlic pickle slices, diced
- 2 celery stalks, diced
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 2 squirts of light mayonaise (I had this in the fridge and realized it has HFCS - ahh - sorry!)
- 3-4 T dijon mustard (I used Annie's Organic - picture below)
- lots of ground black pepper
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp old bay seasoning
- 2% sharp cheddar cheese
- english muffins
I mixed together the tuna salad while I toasted the english muffins slightly. Then I topped the toasted muffins with the tuna salad and slices of the sharp cheddar cheese and stuck them back into the toaster oven. These were delicious and very filling with lots of crunch from the veggies.I just wish I had some plain greek yogurt to experiment using instead of mayonaise - next time though! Oh and the old bay really gives is a great kick. enjoy!
Hope everyone has a good night!
