Simple Avocado Tuna Salad

Balance & Zest.

Two goals I strive for in ALL areas of my life…ESPECIALLY with my nutrition.

As someone who thoroughly enjoys eating, I love exploring new ways to spice up (and healthify) traditional favorites in a way that both tastes AMAZING but also gives the body the fuel it needs to perform its best throughout the day!

My new favorite sandwich/toast/whateva you want to call it does JUST THAT.

The avocado provides a healthy dose of brain-loving healthy fat, the tuna alone packs in 17 grams of muscle building protein and the whole-grain bread provides sustained energy that keeps your belly and body happy for HOURS after lunch is over!


And don’t even get me started about the seasoning sprinkled on top of this already amazing combo! Seriously though, if you haven’t already tried Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel Seasoning, you have been missing OUT! Fear not, you can order this jar of goodness on Amazon and have it delivered in just a day or two!
