Recipe (Tuna and Pasta)

Sharing what I came up with tonight because I want to know that it is somewhere that I can find it to stir my memory, should I need it. :)

One thing that I have enjoyed for a long time is pasta with mayo, tunafish, pasta, and tomato. Given that I am trying to be more mindful and aware of what I am eating, it is altering things.

In addition, I had a doctor tell me to stay away from nightshade veggies, of which tomato is one. I have been reluctant to stop eating them, but I have noticed lately that my stomach does not seem to handle peppers or tomatoes very well.

I have also been trying to be creative with avocados, as I have heard that they are a good "fat" substitute. I made honey mustard dressing recently with an avocado. It was quite yummy. 

I had a thought today to replace the mayo with an avocado. I wasn't sure if I'd like it, but I figured I wouldn't have much to lose by trying it. I mixed avocado with onion and fresh garlic and tunafish with a bit of lime juice. I then mixed in brown rice gluten free pasta and served it over a bed of fresh spinach. The raw, fresh onion and garlic was a bit much...but overall, I think I have a substitute I like.

It has been a long few days. I have been barely able to do much. I think I overdid it when I was gearing up for the recent event. At least that is what I am hoping is the case. I will be seeing the oncologist this week, and getting blood work. Fingers crossed all is still going in a positive direction.


Tonight I will be the interviewee for a change. Martine Joseph will be interviewing me. You can click here to join us (or listen at a later time). The show airs at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Tomorrow I will be interviewing Oceana LeBlanc on my World of Perspective Radio Show airing at 4:00 PM Eastern. I recently did a session with her, and think she is awesome. Perhaps you will, too.


  1. Congratulations! I have never been successful with using a substitution in my recipes (that was pleasing to my tastebuds).

    1. Thanks...sometimes I don't do as well...but am appreciative of the times it does work out. :)

  2. Hello Elizabeth. Avocados are very good. I never used to like them, but have come to enjoy them. I have Crohn's disease and have to watch what I eat so am trying to eat more of them.

    Fingers crossed for you too!

    1. Thanks Robert. Yes. Avocados are awesome. Hard to believe I didn't think I liked them before I ever really gave them a chance. I hear they are really good for you, and some people eat a whole one every day. I appreciate you stopping by and dropping your comment.
