Buffalo Tuna Salad on Toast or in Avocado Boats

Most American’s don’t get enough omega-3’s in their diet, which is essential for brain and heart health. They also help to lower anxiety and depression risk. Eating canned tuna can be convenient and healthy but ordinary. This recipe adds a bit of flavor and flair to an everyday dish.

If you’re following a Low FODMAP diet, then you’ll want to stick to ¼ of avocado and serve this on toast. However, if you tolerate avocados, their creamy texture complements the tuna and creates a tasty and satisfying dish!
