Tuna-Veggie Wrap

Yesterday, I jogged for more than 2km straight (almost 5 laps) without stopping.  I was shocked when I realized I did that.   I’ve been deep in my thoughts thinking about what the future may bring to me and Frederick that I lost tract of my work-out.  I am not even sure if I did my stretching :-( Luckily, my subconscious was active enough to be able to dictate my fingers to do the lap counting :-) Fascinating wasn’t it :-)

Last year, I requested my husband to resign from his job in DR Congo to join me in Singapore so we could finally start a family.  We are both in our mid thirties and having a baby is our utmost priority specially that I have a ticking-time-bomb.   Things didn't pan out well about our Singapore plans.  It’s been difficult for my husband to find a job here in Singapore and it had been so frustrating not only for him but for me specially when our application for permanent residency was disapproved.  So we are now on our plan B, and that is to find better opportunities outside of Singapore and we are praying that things will go as planned or that bigger and better opportunities will be opened for us to grab.  We believe on the latter

Because of that, I finished 8 complete laps.  I have a great feeling after and I’m also feeling wonderful about our plans :-)  Now it’s time for me to post  the recipe of the meal I made 2 days ago.  This is still part  of this weeks meal plan (see week 3)


Ingredients :
Hot & Spicy Tuna (Canned) – 1 can (nw. 180 g)
*Mixed vegetables  - 100 g.
White Onion, sliced into rings – 1 large
Low Fat Mayonnaise – 2 tbsp
Whole Wheat Pita bread or tortilla – 3 pcs

* The mixed vegetables I used consisted of diced carrots, greenpeas and diced greenbeans.  I took out the corn kernels

Cooking Procedure

1.     Drain the tuna but reserve the oil. Set aside both.
2.     Heat 1 tsp of the oil in a sauce pan and sauté the onion for 1 minute then add the mixed veggie and sauté for another 2 minutes.  Set aside to cool down.
3.     Toast the pita bread / tortilla.
4.     Mix the tuna, mayonnaise, and mixed veggie.
5.     Spread the pita / tortilla and fill the other end with the tuna filling.  Divide the filling equally into the 3 pita bread / tortilla.  Roll pita and serve.

Enjoy it with Tabasco and a cup of green tea.
