I have recently decided to cut grains, processed food, and extra sugars from my diet for awhile. It's a little tricky coming up with new things to eat for lunch because I could seriously eat a sandwich every day. I have a yummy tuna/avocado pita sandwich recipe that I used to eat a lot, so I decided to just TRY it without the pita. I didn't even miss it!
The avocado keeps the tuna really moist and the tomato adds a little extra flavor and juiciness. Yummy! You could probably add some celery, onions, or bell peppers if you wanted to add some crunch to it. Extra seasonings would be good as well. (I'm kind of boring when it comes to food though, unless it's SPICY - I LOVE spicy!)
The best part about this recipe is that it takes like 2 minutes to throw together. And it's soooo good for you!
(makes 2 servings)
1 can albacore tuna in water
1 avocado, sliced in half
cherry tomatoes, diced
sea salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
Scoop out a little of the avocado, leaving some around the edge & in the bottom of the skins. Mix the avocado, tuna, and tomatoes together in separate bowl. Add seasonings if you want. Spoon the mixture back into the avocado skins & enjoy!
(I confess, the next day I just ate everything out of the bowl - I was too hungry to be fancy!) haha
