Avocado and Tuna Salad

Since I barely have time to go to the gym these days, I figured that at least eating right should do me well.

It’s super easy to make and very good for you:  avocados are rich in monosaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and contribute  almost 20 vitamins, nutrients and beneficial plant compounds. Light chunk tuna in water is high in protein and low in fat and carbs. Note that draining it and rinsing it well will help with the sodium content.

You will need:

1 small can water-packed chunk tuna

1 medium avocado

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp black pepper

(optional) a pinch of dill

Method:

1. Cut the avocado into chunky squares.

2. Toss with lemon juice and pepper.

3. Add the tuna (and dill if you’re using it) and mix everything together.

Eat and enjoy 🙂

(For the picture, I put everything into a ramekin, let it settle and turned it upside down)

PS   The sounds of the can opening will wake up the cat in the other room. Quickly adding the lemon juice seems to confuse him just enough not to investigate further.
