Modified Tuna Melt - YUM!

Woah -- Ok, so here's the Quiznos tuna melt.  I was shocked to find out it is LOADED with calories.  (The large has around 2090 calories & 175g Fat, the regular has 1420 Calories & 118g Fat, and the Small has 770 Calories & 60.5g Fat! Shocking!)
Why would anyone eat this?!  Or anything from there for that matter -- not to knock Quiznos - but I've never been a fan.   Plus after hearing this information, I'm even more against it... BUT If you want a yummy tuna melt, try what I made today!! 

1 Ole High Fiber Low Carb Extreme Wellness Tortilla
1/2 can chunk light tuna - drained
1/2 tbsp light mayo
relish or whatever you like in your tuna (I use a pepper concoction called Cha-Cha)
a little shredded cheese - about a tbsp
1/2 cup romaine
Mix up tuna, mayo & cha-cha (or whatever your choice is).  Put down middle of tortilla.  Top with cheese.  Heat under broiler for a couple minutes.  Remove from oven and add in lettuce, roll up -- This is a healthy way to keep your tuna from getting boring!  (I also love salsa with tuna so maybe try that too!) 

Eat the whole thing - here's the stats!
