THIS EASY AVOCADO TUNA SALAD CAN BE SERVED SO MANY WAYS
I love a tasty recipe that’s versatile enough to serve in lots of different ways and this tuna salad is just that. Serve it up in a wrap, on sandwich bread, over a bed of baby spinach or topped on apple slices (like shown in this post). It’s also my recent favorite go-to for operation meal prep Sunday.
THE PERFECT RECIPE MEAL PREP
Lately, I’ve been all about simple and convenient. So, when meal planning for the week, anything that I can throw together in Tupperware containers that will last me for a few days is just perfect. This tuna salad along with some spinach or wraps make lunches easy and healthy throughout the week. Especially, when I’ve fallen into that rut of eating the same. thing. every. day. I don’t know what your go-to-meals are, but all week I find myself eating a salad, chili, or even this roasted veggie breakfast bake (which has been my FAVE lately just because it makes so much!). It’s nice to switch it up now and then…..just be prepared for those nosy co-workers to ask for the recipe. Hehe.
MY FAVORITE TUNA BRAND
I know I talk about meal planning all the time, but it really does help me to stay accountable, makes for less chaotic mornings when I go to pack my lunch, saves money each week (since I go on ONE big grocery haul making sure to only get what I need for that week) and I’m staying healthy in the process. Every week I add one or two new recipes into the rotation to mix it up.
Enter this tuna deliciousness! I’m obsessed with tuna salads and this one ranks in the top 3 of my all-time favorites. I’m always sure to use a quality tuna brand. My favorite is Wild Planet. I usually by in bulk from Costco. This is not sponsored, I just really like it!
