The other day I grabbed Carsyn from school and I was soooo tempted to just go through the drive-thru at Chickfila. Carsyn would be happy and I would be happy at the time, but not when I stepped on the scale. I knew I had a couple cans of Bumble Bee®Tuna in the pantry at home. I started thinking what would go good with tuna? I knew I had avocados that needed to be eaten. Ding, ding, ding! Perfect, I would make avocado lime tuna salad. (You know I had to add lime, since I am obsessed with all things lime!)
The key to actually sticking to eating healthy is having a few go to meals that you can make quickly when the hunger strikes. Instead of stopping to the drive-thru, you know when you get home you can whip up something delicious and healthy. Add this avocado lime tuna salad to your weekly meal plan. It is packed full of protein and vegetables. As most of you know I am in the process of becoming healthier. Therefore, I have been on the hunt for easy and healthy meals. This definitely fits the bill! If a meal takes too long to fix, it just isn’t going to happen.
Avocado Lime Tuna Salad
By Sarah Halstead
- 1 can of Bumble Bee Tuna
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 tablespoon greek yogurt (or mayo)
- 2 green onions
- 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
- cilantro, chopped
- garlic salt, to taste
- black pepper, to taste
- Mix together the tuna, lime juice, greek yogurt, onions, cilantro, and bell pepper.
- Season with garlic salt and pepper.
- Pack the avocado halves with the tuna salad.
Garnish with extra green onions, cilantro, and pepper.
If you really like lime you could add an extra squirt of lime juice on top.
On my diet, I pair this with some extra red bell pepper slices, and don’t eat all of the avocado. That way counts towards my lean and green meal for the day.
I always buy the Bumble Bee® Tuna in water, which is available in cans or pouches. Tuna is packed full of lean protein, healthy fat, and Omega-3s. I love that I can store the tuna in the pantry and grab a can when I need a quick and tasty meal.
