Tuna Avocado Boats that have no mayonnaise, just tuna, avocado, and some fresh veggies. Tastes delicious, and is such a healthy lunch! Paleo, gluten free, dairy free, low carb, Whole30.
I was driving all over town running errands the other day. I made the mistake of running these errands around 3:00pm, when traffic is insane.
Now that I’m home with my baby and don’t have an office job, I forget about things like rush hour traffic after work or when school gets out.
I was dead stopped in traffic, and was jealous of the few cars in the carpool lane just zipping by. If only I had another person in the car with me so I could go in the carpool lane. I bet I would be home in 5 minutes instead of 30 minutes.
And then it hit me.
WAIT A MINUTE! I have Josh in the back seat! That’s 2 or more people!
Oh motherhood, you’re paying off in ways I never dreamed of.
I merged over to the carpool lane, then reached back to rub Josh’s head and said “Thanks for being born! Now we’ll be home in no time!”
As if having a cute little bald baby isn’t a big enough reward, but now I get to enjoy the carpool lane all the time. Can’t believe it took me 5 months to have this realization.
I also can’t believe it took me so long to use avocado with my tuna instead of mayonnaise. Is there anything that avocado doesn’t make better? I love the taste, and it is much healthier than using mayo. I used my usual tuna salad recipe, and just swapped in 1 avocado instead of mayo.
I mix it together with some diced tomatoes, celery, parsley and lemon juice. I serve it right in the avocado skin. Cute right?
It tastes fresh and delicious, and is such a healthy lunch. Paleo, gluten free, dairy free, low carb and Whole30.
My favorite tuna to use is Wild Selections®. Wild Selections® is wonderful because they use premium quality, sustainably sourced fish that’s 100% traceable. You can visit their website, wildselections.com, to learn where the fish in your can was caught. Only full line of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood. The blue MSC eco-label tells you the fish in your can comes from well managed fisheries and healthy fish stocks
I love that Wild Selections® gives back to the oceans by donating 13 cents from every can sold—a total of $1 million by 2018—to World Wildlife Fund marine conservation and fishery improvement projects.
And best of all, their tuna tastes delicious made with simple all natural ingredients. All tuna is Non-GMO Project verified.
