How to Make Healthy Tuna Salad Avocado Boats (Perfect for Lunch)!

Keep healthy eating simple by starting small. If you want to keep your meals healthy and cringe at the thought of using mayonnaise, then swap it out for ... drum roll please...

Avocado! Avocado tastes amazing and is crazy healthy for you! Did you know that avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B vitamins and folic acid. Want to give mashed avocado a try? 

You'll need:

  • 1 can tuna, drained
  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • 4 sweet peppers, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 leaves romaine lettuce or 1 avocado, cut in half

Here's how to make them:

  1. In a bowl, combine the avocado, chopped peppers, tuna and salt and pepper. Mix well. 
  2. Divide evening between the four lettuce leaves or avocado halves. 
  3. Garnish with chopped tomato, if desired. Serves 2. 

Be Happy. Be Healthy. Be Fit. Be YOU. It's YOUR Turn!

Donna John they come in a bag in the produce department. The brand varies depending on shipments. So yummy!

I love all peppers, so a variety does sound yummy! Going to make this for lunch this week. I've made chicken salad like this, but never tuna. It's so good for you!
Kelli Schulte

So yummy Kelli Schulte! Like Donna John said you can do it with chicken salad. I recently try it with some left over steak. Mmmmmm! So many variations to get your protein and healthy fats all on one plate. :)
