If you're using it in sandwiches get uncured bacon or chicken breasts, which conveniently fit inside a sandwich. I also get my canned tuna in olive oil instead of brine, that keeps my salt total down as well.

Good luck!


That's totally a new one on me. The next case of tuna that I buy will be oil-packed! Thanks for that advice!
