Tuna is also full of mercury though - don't eat it more than twice a week.
I hate to get hysterical about this stuff but I've been reading about the disasterous effect too much tuna has on kids -- like it caused a four year old to developmentally regress (she stopped talking, hair was falling out). frightening.
i have a really yummy, hearty, low-fat vegan chili:
1/2 cup veggie broth or water
2 medium carrots, diced
i medium onion, diced
2 can beans (black or kidney or both)
2 cans diced tomatoes
6 oz can tomato paste
3/4 cup brown rice
12 oz canned corn
1 can garbanzo beans (chick peas)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1-2 teaspoons curry powder
directions: in a big pot, simmer onions and carrots until the onions are translucent. then add all other ingridients plus some extra water if it's too thick and mix. cook on low heat for about an hour (stirring every few minutes) or until the rice is done. serve with wheat (or rye) bread.
Make your own muesli!
I love muesli in the morning and now I make my own. I even toast some bacthes by laying out the muesli (excluding the dried fruit becasue otherwise they kinda blow up) onto a tray and drizzling some honey over then jsut toast it for a bit, add the dried fruit and voila!
So this is what I put in my very own muesli recipe:
Rolled oats (a lot)
Dried fruit - saltanas and dates
A few nuts - almonds
Small handful of sunflower seeds
Some Bran and Wheatgerm - about a table spoon of each
and some cinnamon
> Very healthy and very tasty
