It's that time of year again—New Year's Resolutions. I don't love them and I don't hate them. I simply don't believe that they matter all that much.
At this time of year there are stories everywhere about making resolutions, along with surveys of the top ten and even what resolutions most of us are will probably not keep. Interestingly, weight loss tops both lists in various (usually unscientific) surveys. There is some research about this, but none of it is conclusive, and in general it just says that we usually break our resolutions.
I see thousands of patients and every day throughout the year someone makes a resolution. These are no different than the intentions that they commit to on New Year's Day and are broken just as often. Here's what I think are the reasons people don't keep these resolutions. The New Year's Resolution Problem
When I was growing up this was a pretty common meal in the South. The versions I ate as a kid didn't have sliced tomato, but when I went to New Jersey as a teen I had my first Tuna Melt with tomato, and in spite of my Southern upbringing, this is the way it should be. The tomato adds some moisture and sweetness that just completes the sandwich.
Of course, back then a Tuna Melt was made with white bread. Whole wheat bread really completes this recipe, bringing not just a healthier choice of bread but so much better flavor.
The choice of cheese is up to you. I've had Tuna Melt with Swiss, cheddar and mozzarella. Each is a little different, but they all taste great.
