Holly Clegg is known for taking old standby recipes and giving them a new and healthy twist. One example is her Trim&TERRIFIC™ recipe for tuna salad. Not only is this recipe low in calories, (only 108 per serving), but it is recommended for the diabetic diet, is gluten-free, and it is featured in her book Eating Well Through Cancer in the “Day of Chemotherapy” chapter as a recipe that is generally tolerated well. Know someone going through chemo? This would make a great gift to nourish both body and soul.
