i figure more people look in this form so it would be more benefitial then the dieting one. these are 6 recipes that i got several years ago from an old fitness forum, i dont even remember who posted them, im sure he got them out of some cookbook! I actually just found them the other day on my computer and i thought id share them with you.
1. Tuna-Chili Soft Tacos
In a small bowl, combine a six-ounce can of light tuna in water (always get light tuna packed in water and always drain) and one tablespoon of chili sauce. Spread two tablespoons of fat-free cream cheese on two flour tortillas (one tablespoon of cream cheese each). Top the cream cheese with the tuna mixture and roll up the tortilla.

2. Spicy Tuna Burger
Take a six-ounce can of tuna and mix it with three tablespoons of seasoned dry bread crumbs, one egg white and one-half teaspoon of hot sauce. Shape the mixture into a round patty, about one-inch thick and four inches wide. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set the pan over medium-high heat. Add the tuna patty and cook four minutes per side, until it is golden brown and cooked through. Place the burger on a bun and top with two tomato slices. Now, that’s a healthy Whopper!

3. Middle-Eastern Tuna Pockets
The Middle East may be a powder keg right now, but this quick and tasty meal will do wonders for international relations. Scramble a six-ounce can of tuna with one-quarter cup of crushed pineapple, one tablespoon of fat-free mayonnaise, one tablespoon of chopped pecans and one-half teaspoon of curry powder. Spoon the mixture into two pita-pocket halves.
