The New and Improved Food Judicata

After a seven-month hiatus, I have decided to return to the food blogosphere!  As you can see Food Judicata has a fresh new look, I am planning on some new changes that reflect some of the big changes in my life in the last seven months. In the past months I:

1) Lost twenty pounds - expect to see a healthier, lighter Food Judicata
2) Moved to a new city - look out for bits on local businesses and restaurants
3) Combined households with J., the boyfriend - expect to see more about family-style cooking
4) Got a new computer - I am not sure what this will mean for the blog yet, except that maybe I will be posting more frequently

These changes all mostly happened within the last two weeks (well, except for the 20 pound weight loss, of course!)

To kick of my return, here is a "recipe" (more of a method, than a recipe) to my Southwest Tuna Salad that I threw together for lunch today with J. As you can see, it uses mostly light and fresh ingredients, (except for the tuna), but the seasonings give it an extra punch of flavor.  

Southwest Tuna Salad

1 can Albacore tuna (no salt added, packed in water - I used Trader Joe's)
2 Tbs light mayonnaise
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Dash of cayenne pepper
pinch of salt
squeeze of fresh lime juice

Mix together these ingredients and lay on top of a bed of the following: 

Mixed Salad Greens
Black beans
Roasted red pepper
Hard boiled eggs
Baby carrots

Finish with another squeeze of the lime and serve.  Makes about two servings
