Quick Meal: Tuna & Avocado Stuffed Peppers
Here is a quick meal and simple recipe that you can make and take with you for lunch. It’s a good amount of protein fat and carbs and will keep you satiated all afternoon.
Tuna should not be eaten more than once a week because of it’s concentration of mercury.
- 1 orange pepper (can be any colour bell pepper really, but yellow and orange are my favourite because they’re a little bit sweeter)
- 1 avocado
- 1 can of tuna (packed in water)
- Sea salt or kelp salt
The rest is simple:
- Mash the avocado, tuna and sea salt together
- stuff it in a pepper (cut into two halves)
Voila! Throw it in a tupperware and go! No cutlery necessary, just pick it up at eat it.
Note: even though you can easily eat this meal on the go, I do recommend taking the time to sit down and eat. When you’re on the go and in a rush, your body will not put its focus on digesting and you will be more likely to chew your food improperly, making it difficult for your body to break down the food and absorb the nutrients that it needs from it.
