Avocado Tuna Salad
Do you ever eat lunch only to find yourself hungry again hours later? It’s likely because there’s simply not enough fat in your diet. (I promise, fat won’t make you fat.) It’s dietary fat that helps increase satiety and decrease sugar cravings. (I’m talking about healthy, real food fats… not Crisco.)
This avocado tuna salad is the perfect lunch to keep you full and satisfied. No need to serve it up in the avocado if you don’t have time or space. Simply put it in Tupperware and add it to a lettuce leaf for a low carb, high fat avocado tuna salad option.
