Tuna Salad: The Ultimate Fast Food

Lately I’ve been getting numerous requests for more recipes, so I figured might as well share one of my personal “2 minute” favourites: Tuna Avocado Stuffed Peppers.

Although I enjoy cooking, I can be quite lazy with my meal preparation. The beauty of this tuna recipe is that it takes about 2 minutes to prepare and packs in several servings of vegetables to boot.

Tuna Avocado Stuffed Peppers

  • 1 bell pepper (any colour)
  • 1 can tuna
  • 1/2 avocado (ripe)
  • 1/2 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup salsa



In a small mixing bowl, max ripe avocado. Add tuna, onion and salsa, stir together with avocado.

Wash and cut bell pepper (in half), remove the seeds. Spoon tuna mixture into each pepper half and consume like a sandwich.

Optional: you can swap 1 TBSP of tzatziki for the avocado for a different flavour and lower caloric impact.

So there you have it, an awesomely healthy meal that even the laziest among us can prepare!

And who said fast food had to be unhealthy?

Till next train, train hard and eat clean.

Hi, the only problem I see with this is that now tuna will kill you with the high concentrations of mercury. I don’t know if one can even FIND safe tuna.

Then use fresh white fish, ie. cod, mahi mahi, ahi, etc. it doesnt have to be canned and there is still some canned tuna out there that is healthy (we have some that we found) but if you don’t trust it then go to a fish market.
