G'Day Gourmet

In the days before we all worried about mercury poisoning, I ate a lot of tuna. Jeremy Piven and assorted reports that crop up now and then are worrisome, so it may be best not to eat tuna every day. For an interesting article on mercury, check out the FDA report at http://www.fda.gov/fdac/reprints/mercury.html.

But on the rare occasions when I do eat tuna, I like to splurge on G'Day Gourmet Tuna. It comes in a tiny can, just the right size for one person, but carries a hefty price tag because it comes from down under -- Australia to be specific. The G'Day Gourmet folks claim their wild caught tuna (can tuna be farmed?) is naturally low in mercury, and that they use sustainable harvesting methods. But the best part is the seasoning. If you like a little zest in your tuna, the lemon pepper is excellent. When I was growing up, we always added a little bit of lemon when we made tuna fish sandwiches, and it's simply a delicious combination. I've tried one or two of their other flavors and, for my taste, they wouldn't rate as many cupcakes, but the lemon pepper is outstanding. Available at Whole Foods and other natural food stores.

Five cupcakes!
