Five-ingredient, high protein avocado tuna lettuce boats should be on every summer menu! Made with Safe Catch low mercury tuna.
I encourage my clients to include some protein at all meals and snacks. It is our satiating macronutrient and staves off hunger levels the longest.
One of my go-to additions to tuna is avocado. It is an easy lunch addition that you can take with you on the go, it adds a creamy consistency that pairs with it seamlessly and it’s packed with heart-healthy fats.
These boats are made with Safe Catch tuna which has 35 grams of high quality biological value protein per can (meaning it contains all the essential amino acids – the building blocks of protein) and is a good source of omega-3 fats.
I love this brand because they test all their fish individually for its mercury level and as a result they have the lowest mercury of any brand on the market. As a dietitian it makes me happy to see that they are a trusted partner for the American Pregnancy Association since pregnant women are advised to avoid high mercury fish. All of their cans are BPA-free and have no additives or fillers.
