Tuna Melt on Rye for Lunch!

Daily Tidbit:  Tuna Fish!  I ate loads of Tuna Fish sandwiches growing up but because of Mercury concerns and the desire to eat less Mayo I really don't eat it that often anymore.  Feeling in the mood today I went for it and tried a Mayo-less recipe which was actually very yummy.  I used 1 can of Chunk Light Tuna for my Tuna Melt; the whole thing contained just 100 Calories and 26 grams of Protein; that is a high ratio of Protein per Calorie!

Turns out canned Chunk Light Tuna is the safer choice when it comes to Mercury levels in varieties of Tuna.
