Working avocado into any of your meals is amazing! It’s crazy how many different ways it can be used and the wide variety of flavors that it goes incredibly well with! This is one of my favorites. It’s simple, easy, and great for you! This recipe is full of protein, healthy fats and whole grains! What more could you ask from a meal? As a warning it does have canned tuna in it! It’s a great source of inexpnsive protein but some people just don’t like it! Luckily for them, this recipe is also great with chicken! Anyways, this is making me hungry so lets get to it!
1 can of tuna (you’ll want to make sure to drain this before using it!)
1/2 Whole wheat pita
1/4 Avocado (this is mostly to preference)
Shredded cheddar cheese to preference(a little mixed in and a little on top)
*The oven/toaster oven should be pre heated to 350 degrees.
*You’ll need something that will hold the pitas upright so that that the cheese doesn’t melt out! (I use a small baking pan and lean the pita against the side)
-Smash up the the avocado in a bowl then add the tuna and mix together well (the avocado keeps the tuna from being dry)
-Mix in the shredded cheddar cheese
-Pour everything into the half whole wheat pita
-Add some shredded or thinly sliced cheddar cheese on top of the tuna mixture in the pita
-Line the pan with foil if you don’t enjoy cleaning cheese off of them like me!:)
-Cook at 350 for 10-15 minutes(the cheese on top will melt before the whole thing is cooked! So it’s not done just because the top is melted)
-Let it cool off and enjoy your healthy and delicious meal!
