Super Quick & Healthy Tuna and Avocado Lunch

This lunch is faster and easier than a salad or sandwich with the health benefits of tuna and avocado.

.I’ve been trying to get more fish in our diet and found Bumble Bee Tuna Sensations Sundried Tomato and Basil flavor at Walmart. It very convenient pull top, just dump and eat.

I serve the tuna in half an avocado less than $2.00 lunch.  Much less than any fast food and very healthy. Unfortunately the crackers that come with the tuna are Ritz type. I’d prefer a wholegrain cracker.

Even Better

Make this more economical and healthier by using making your own Sundried Tomato and Basil tuna and add wholewheat crackers. Apples and tomatoes are also great with this lunch.

5 Health Benefits of Tuna

  1. Tuna, like other fish, is full of omega-3 fatty acids. These help to eliminate erratic heart beats, and that lowers the risk of blood clots and heart attacks.
  2. Triglycerides are a type of fat that–when present in great amounts–contributes to high cholesterol. Eating tuna lowers the triglyceride content in a person to normal, healthy amounts.
  3. Since eating tuna helps prevent blood clots and also improves blood flow, it can help prevent strokes. Eating only 1 to 3 servings a month is enough to lower the risk of stroke in a person.
  4. The omega-3 count in tuna is greatly beneficial to skin care. It helps to reduce inflammation, which helps reduce the risk of sunburn and skin cancer.
  5. Tuna is a good source of selenium as well as omega-3. This is important in liver health, which helps to promote detoxification of the body.

  1. HOLY COW! Does God Care about What We Eat?Holy Cow: What the Bible Says About Eating Meat begins with the author’s attention-grabbing story personal story. The author was raised as a Jew but only discovers what the Bible really says about eating after she becomes a Christian. She shares the challenges she had to face when she tried to share her new found Bible truth to her husband.

    This book is a simple-to-understand overview in plain words the differences between clean and unclean meats. The author presents a balanced explanation of eating biblically and explains where some of the non-biblical traditions (such as separating milk and meat) come from.

    Egan addresses the verses that most Christians use to rationalize that all foods are clean (Mark 7 and Acts 10). She uses basic hermeneutic principles to properly interpret the text. Eagan is very clear that our diets are not a salvation issue while also encourages obedience to God’s Word. I highly recommend this fine book.$14.00
