This tuna stuffed avocado recipe makes for an excellent lunch!

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these Simple Meals. If you don’t know what this category of recipes on my blog are all about, it’s really pretty simple. They are exactly as the name implies. Totally simple recipes that almost don’t even qualify as actual recipes.

Why do I post these? Because I know there are many of you who don’t particularly care to cook, even if you do want to eat clean and healthy. I also know that there are quite a few of you who are just learning to cook, or simply need fast and very basic recipes for those busy days you just can’t spend time in the kitchen.

And pssst…. these are great recipes for kids learning to cook as well! All of my Simple Meals can be easily adjusted to taste and none of them have long or complicated ingredient lists.

Some of my favorite Simple Meals are stuffed avocados. You get all that healthy, wonderful fat along with flavor and filling protein! In fact, I’ll be doing a few of these recipes in the coming months. So check back for those!

As for today’s recipe, it’s about as simple as a recipe can get. It’s great for breakfast, lunch or dinner too!

    Hi Tiffany. You’ve given me an idea for a small bridal shower/brunch I’m helping to prepare food for. But do you have any tips for keeping the avocado from browning if you prepared these a few hours in advance?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Gay – I would rub the avocado with some lemon juice. Not enough to add flavor, but just a thin coat. It might not completely do the trick, but it will help.

  2. Is this recipe really 565 calories and 45 grams of fat? OMG. That’s a lot of calories and fat for one serving! It looks and sounds great. But, that packs on the pounds.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rhonda – That’s for the entire recipe. A full avocado. You could certainly cut it in half if you wish. 565 calories isn’t that much for a full meal. Even if you did that for all three meals, you’d still be under 1700 calories for the day when 1800 calories is the suggested norm for most people. As for the fat, some folks want/need that. This is a good recipe for keto folks. But honestly, I have never gained weight eating this every once in a while. Avocados are naturally high in good-for-you fats. So I have never had a problem with it. But I don’t eat it every day either. (Actually now, I don’t eat it at all because I’m vegan! Haha!)
