My Food Diary, Just Saying

Tuna Salad

In bowl combine:

1 small can tuna, packed in water

1 T. pickle relish

Couple of squirts of spicy mustard

In small food processor combine:

celery

onion

green onion

bell pepper

1/2 apple

Process until copped to desired consistency

Add to tuna mixture. Sprinkle with black pepper and any seasonings desired.

Toast 2 slices wheat bread, cut in triangles or squares, if desired.

Sprinkle a few raisins on top.

I’m told tuna is a fatty fish that contains omega 3 fatty acids which is ok if watching high cholesterol.

Macaroni, Salsa, and Spinach
1 cup uncooked macaroni (cook in about 2 cups or 2 1/2 cups water)
Cook macaroni in slow cooker or rice cooker (depending on time you have) or on stovetop
1 jar salsa
1 green onion, chopped 
Add green onion to top of macaroni/salsa
1 can spinach, heated
Quick, easy, no cholesterol, healthy! I’m avoiding high cholesterol foods so a lot of the goodies won’t do for me.

Dried Beans in Slow Cooker

I used

1/2 cup red kidney beans

1/2 cup great northern beans

I washed them, added fresh water and soaked them for about 3-4 hours.

Chopped up

6 green onions

1 small yellow onion

1 bell pepper

2 stalks celery

Placed beans in slow cooker with fresh water, to cover the beans

Added 1 T. diced garlic, black pepper, and dried parsley.

I turned the slow cooker on as I went to bed, on low, cooked through the night.

I woke up around 5 AM, the beans were done.  I added no oil or grease of any kind.

Easy for elderly to prepare, convenient, don’t have to stand over it and watch it all day. Easy for person with health problems that limits activity in kitchen. No cholesterol.
