Both tuna and avocado are full of heart-healthy fat. Tuna contains omega-3 fat, an essential fat your body needs. Avocado contains monounsaturated fat. Both fats promote healthy cholesterol levels. Both tuna and avocado are sources of vitamin E. This fat-soluble vitamin acts as an antioxidant to help fight off free radicals. Free radicals cause ageing and disease to the cells of your body when consumed in excess.
Avocado and lettuce leaves are a good source of vitamin K, needed to assist with strong bones and helps your blood to clot normally. Both are also sources of folate which allows your DNA to be made and to be repaired when damaged. Lemon juice will help keep your immune system working at its best, as a source of vitamin C.
Lettuce leaves and avocado are a good source of fibre to increase how full you feel after the meal. The healthy fats from the avocado and tuna and protein from the tuna in this meal also help you to feel fuller for longer too! Make sure you save this recipe when you need to take a taste escape to the coast.
