Ready In: 10 min

12 oz Light Tuna (2-6 ounce cans)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt (optional)
1/3 tsp fresh Ground Black Pepper

Canned salmon can be used in place of canned tuna. You can add a little cumin, thyme, or dried basil.
Avocados are a cool, creamy fruit grown in warm regions of the world. Nutrient dense, they can be a delicious part of a healthy diet as they are packed with vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that energize and protect the body.
Unlike most fruit, avocados contain monounsaturated fat, which has been shown to increase desirable cholesterol (HDL) and reduce undesirable cholesterol (LDL).
When shopping for a ripe avocado, give it a gentle squeeze. If it feels hard as a baseball, put it back in the bin and try again. If it mooshes in your hand, that one is too ripe. You want to find an avocado that is just a little soft when you give it a squeeze. If you are buying your avocados to use a few days later, buy the harder fruit, then put them in a brown paper bag to ripen a bit before you use them.
