Five-ingredient, high protein avocado tuna lettuce boats should be on every summer menu! Made with Safe Catch low mercury tuna.
As a dietitian, I am always in search of easy, high quality protein snacks.
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.
High quality protein and convenience typically do not go hand in hand. However, canned tuna is one exception to that!
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.
Tuna is one of those proteins that is just so easy. Whether you are on the go, or pressed for lunch, they are packable and ready to eat in minutes.
