Healthy Lunch Idea: Stuffed Avocados

Sick and tired of the same old boring tuna sandwich for lunch? I sure am, which is why I am loving the idea of Stuffed Avocados. Not only do I love avocados, but this lunch idea from RealAge is a great way to get loads of monounsaturated fat (the good fat), protein, fiber, and potassium.

For the super easy recipe just

.

Stuffed Avocados (serves four)
(via RealAge.com)

Forget the bread; next time you're serving chicken (or seafood or tuna) salad for lunch, try mounding it in an avocado half instead.

What you need:

  • 2 medium avocados, halved and pits removed
  • 1 cup prepared seafood, tuna or chicken salad

What you do:

  1. Top each avocado half with 1/4 cup of the salad.

sounds delicious but just wondering how the calorie count adds up? i thought a whole avocado was more than 175 calories.

That really looks like a california roll without the nori.Hmm. I wonder how well that would work: crab meat, cucumber, mayo, little bit of sushi rice..

Love avocados and these look soooo good. I'd put some tuna salad in one. I'm going to try this over my holiday vacation!

Mmm, I would also love a good seafood stuffing recipe. Those look delicious, but my tuna salad is just so boring.

The seafood salad stuffing recipe (as in the photo) would have been a nice addition.

Looks so good! I'm vegan so I can't really it eat the way it is, but maybe with some rice and olive oil and other veggies, it would taste just as good.
