Protein Power Toast

Avocado toast is all the rage these days and everyone seems to have their own take on the recipe. After all, this protein, healthy-fat and complex carbohydrate-packed snack is an ideal meal to get your day started or refuel after a tough workout. One of my favorite recipes is quite simple, but I love it because it satisfies hunger and tastes amazing!

Ingredients:
  1. Two pieces of toast (Our pick: Nature’s Own Whole Grain Sugar Free Bread)
  2. One can of white albacore tuna packed in spring water
  3. Two tbsp. of Mayo (Our pick: Paleo-friendly Primal Kitchen Mayo)
  4. 3/4 avocado
  5. 1/2 tsp. pepper
  6. 1/4 lemon
Directions:

Lightly toast the bread and place on a plate. Open the can of tuna and drain the water. In a small bowl, mix the tuna and mayo. Squeeze lemon and sprinkle pepper over the mix. Stir well. Spoon the tuna onto the bread.

Toast with tunaSlice the avocado in half and squeeze a small amount of lemon onto the avocado half. Slice small slivers of avocado and place onto the tuna.

Avocado toastPlace thin avocado slivers onto both pieces of toast, sprinkle with a small dash of pepper and enjoy!

Avocado toastFor an added punch of protein, mix lowfat cottage cheese into the tuna/mayo mix or place a small spoonful of cottage cheese between the tuna and avocado slices.
