Uber-versatile

“Tuna’s one of those uber-versatile ingredients that can go in a million different directions depending on what you pair it with,” explains Kimberly Morales of Poor Girl Eats Well, as described by Megan Bedard for TakePart.com.

Morales offers a yummy looking Cranberry-Almond Tuna Sandwich.  The ingredients: tuna, red onion, dried cranberries, roasted almonds, mayonnaise, herbes de provence and crusty whole grain bread.

Check out her site about how to eat well on a minuscule budget: “Unlike other budget food blogs, I actually do write this from the point of view of someone who is broke and who struggles constantly to make ends meet, so what I talk about is what I actually experience….  I simply refuse to fall into the ‘It just costs too much to eat healthy’ trap.”

A search of the “Poor Girl” shows a multitude of tuna recipes: Tuna, Veggie & Couscous Salad, Mediterranean Style Tuna Salad and Tuna Stuffed Avocados.

And thanks to Bedard for making an important point with this recipe: “Every time you make an informed decision at the check-out stand, you send a message to folks in the food industry.” So true, especially when it comes to selecting seafood.
