Eat– for Good Health

At a restaurant, a whole tuna sandwich on wheat may contain up to 600 calories, depending on the recipe and size. However, homemade versions can be far lighter. Using two slices of (45 calories per slice Sara Lee) whole-wheat bread, 3 ounces of water-packed tuna (70 calories) and 1 tablespoon of light mayo (30 calories), and you’ll create a sandwich of about 200 calories. Mixing chopped celery, lettuce or shredded carrots into the tuna won’t add significant calories.  Add some brown spicy mustard. We don’t need the chips.  A glass of iced tea or diet cranberry juice (Cran-mango!) is a refreshing summertime drink.

    Hi Dash,
    Mustard has been a part of the most ancient Mediterranean civilizations. The Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used it to spice up meat and fish dishes. They crushed the grains and mixed it into their food. It was the Romans who imported the custom of using table mustard to Gaul. So in a way, yes– wasn’t Gaul Britain to the Romans?

    Gaul (Latin: Gallia) was a region of Western Europe during the Iron Age that was inhabited by Celtic tribes, encompassing present day France, Luxembourg, Belgium, most of Switzerland, parts of Northern Italy, as well as the parts of the Netherlands and Germany on the west bank of the Rhine.

    Everyone has their favorite mustard. I like Dijon– pale yellow color and slightly creamy consistency.
    At one time, any product called Dijon mustard had to be made in the Dijon region of France.

    English Mustard is one of the hottest in the world. It is bright yellow in color with a thicker consistency to the mild American mustard. The most famous brand of English mustard is Colman’s, who first produced their variety in 1814.

    Spicy brown mustard has that speckled brownish-yellow appearance. “Deli style” mustard incorporates horseradish which actually makes it a little spicier than American spicy brown.
