Every now and then I really want to eat a tuna fish sandwich.  I don’t really enjoy egg salad anymore and I don’t eat chicken salad so there aren’t many sandwiches I really get in to.  Tuna fish was always one of my staples but I have been avoiding it since becoming pregnant.  Not that this is a bad thing.  I have been really good about restricting my bread intake this pregnancy.  When I first found out I was pregnant I ate an egg sandwich every morning for breakfast and my weight started to come on fast.  I quickly eliminated this habit and noticed a drastic improvement in the weight gain.  I figure if I avoid the carbs at home I can enjoy them when I go out and don’t have to worry about eating them too often.  Every now and then I give in though and enjoy a bagel.  Tonight I decided to make a salmon melt.  It was really good but I would have preferred it to be tuna.  Soon enough though and I’ll be back on the tuna wagon : ).
