We all know them: people who update their Facebook statuses 10 times a day (or more, in some particularly annoying cases). I used to be guilty of Facebooking too much (and I’m still a hellava creeper), but I never updated my status on an hourly basis. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
One of my favourite offending statuses: “(NAME) just ate a really good sandwich.”
Normally, I could give two shits that someone ate a really good sandwich. It’s up there with finding out my friends’ kids pooed in their potties. But because I maintain a blog about weight loss efforts and food, I had to bite the bullet and share this with you: I just ate a really good sandwich. (I swear this is going somewhere.)
I’m not normally a tuna sandwich type of gal. Sure, I’ll eat them once in a while, but I still associate tuna sandwiches with disappointment, stemming from my elementary school days when I’d open my lunch bag, hoping for a glorious bologna sandwich or Lunchables make-your-own-pizza kit. Instead, I’d get tuna. ON WHOLE WHEAT.
I don’t hate tuna sandwiches with the burning fire of a thousand suns anymore, but I still wouldn’t say I like them. Today, however, I had a super big craving and ultimately created the best tuna sandwich I’ve ever eaten.
I mixed together tuna, Greek yogurt, a chopped up dill pickle, some Dijon mustard, a dash of hot sauce and a pinch of sea salt, then slapped it between two pieces of multi-grain bread with some leafy greens. Best. Sandwich. EVER.
So why did I feel the need to post about a tuna sandwich? Well, I know a lot of people trying to lose weight have a difficult time giving up fat-laden ‘wiches. You know — slathered in mayo, few (or no) veggies, tons of cheese, white Wonder bread.
Bottom line: Try experimenting with healthier ingredients, and you could come up with a Facebook-status-worthy healthy sandwich. Although I promise you, I won’t ever put that shit on Facebook.
