The frist assignment was on the topic of lower cholesterol diets.
"Your patient tells you they have tried fat-free mayo and reduced fat mayo and complains that both taste awful. What alternatives would you suggest for them to use in making tuna salad that is low in fat and cholesterol"
Here are my substitutions:
1. Non- Fat Greek Yogurt
2. Olive oil and sun-dried tomatoes
Time for a test run! Greek yogurt was the first thing that came to mind since it's creamy like mayo but without the fat and cholesterol. PLUS it's got a ton of protein. Since I know I'll be having tuna steak for dinner I decided to create a chicken salad recipe using greek yogurt! It was awesome so I'm definitely adding it to my recipe index!

- 4 oz canned chicken
- 2.5 oz non-fat Chobani Greek Yogurt
