    Made chickpea tuna for the first time this week. It. Was. AMAZING!!!!!! Especially when you let it sit overnight and the onions and celery infuse with flavor. I use vegan mayo and Dijon mustard

    @AmyHammons1, what did you use as vegan "tuna"? (I am a curious vegetarian.)

    @victorious55, that sounds like an awesome day yesterday! I feel like I've been getting better about portion sizes and not overeating this year, but I know that celebrations have been a challenge for me in the past. (Sometimes more like that "cheat day where all restraint is thrown to the wind".) I hope that I will be able to follow your example over Easter and enjoy within limits and therefore without regret. :)
    @fitphoenix I use 1 can of northern beans, 1 can of chickpeas ...smash those sucks up with a potato masher or processor. Mix in a little veganaise, onion, celery, and smoked paprika. Serve on a bed of salad or bread. So yummy! =)

    Let's look at what a Pass Day is and what it isn't:
    1) it can be a welcome tool to use for family gatherings; special events; anniversaries; birthdays and more
    2) it can be planned ahead of time and used with delight, or
    3) it can be a wild card for a blooper in a day's calorie intake
    4) it can be break from the pressure of tracking
    5) Most important of all, it's a way to help you develop the healthy habits of tracking your intake; consuming less than your chosen limit of calories: and encouraging at least 20 minutes of more of daily exercise

    A Pass day is not:
    1) some sort of mortal sin
    2) something to be ashamed about
    3) it's not a cheat day in which all restraint is thrown to the wind.

    We all need balance in our lives and 3 Pass Days per month, seems to be a helpful way to accomplish that.

    Thank you for that reminder Rick. Much appreciated
