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!
- Two pieces of toast (Our pick: Nature’s Own Whole Grain Sugar Free Bread)
- One can of white albacore tuna packed in spring water
- Two tbsp. of Mayo (Our pick: Paleo-friendly Primal Kitchen Mayo)
- 3/4 avocado
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 lemon
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.
Slice 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.
Place thin avocado slivers onto both pieces of toast, sprinkle with a small dash of pepper and enjoy!
For 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.
