Lunch: Avocado Tuna Salad With Broccoli

Ingredients

  • 1 can solid white albacore tuna
  • 1 whole wheat wrap
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 cups broccoli
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions: Tuna and avocado

  • Scoop drained tuna into a bowl and set aside.
  • Slice the avocado in half lengthwise.
  • Scoop the avocado out of both halves and place in bowl with the tuna.
  • Mash with two forks, pulling the tuna apart and mixing in avocado.
  • When avocado is fully mixed, sprinkle with salt & pepper.
  • Scoop onto whole-wheat wrap and serve.

Directions: Broccoli

  • You want to cook and eat the florets, not the stems, so chop a head of broccoli into small pieces that are mainly "tree top" and not so much "trunk."
  • Cut the broccoli into equal size pieces to ensure it cooks evenly.
  • Place the chopped broccoli in a bowl with about 2 tbsp of water at the bottom.
  • Cover the bowl with a plate.
  • Place in the microwave for two minutes, then poke it with a fork. You want it to be firm, not mushy or stiff. If it's undercooked, continue to 'wave it in 30-second intervals. When it's done, top with salt & pepper and serve.
