I had a friend coming over for lunch and I knew I wanted to make something new, but I wasn’t sure exactly what to make. I then remembered a delicious concoction my father served one day — avocados stuffed with tuna. It was delicious – how could it not be when the tuna fish was mixed with 3 types of cheeses and who knows what other stuff. Of course I didn’t want to make such a heavy, rich version with all that cheese. My much healthier alternative was equally delicious. It’s definitely something I’ll keep in mind for future meals.
3 avocados, cut in half and deseeded
2 cans of tuna fish, drained
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
1/4 cup green peas
salt and other seasonings to taste (I used salt, garlic, and a dash of white pepper)
2 tablespoons sour cream (or cottage cheese, or Greek yogurt, or just an extra avocado mashed)
- Cut the avocados in half. Remove the seed. Scoop out some of the avocado and set aside.
- In a bowl, mix together the tuna fish, bell pepper, peas, seasonings, and avocado that was kept aside.
- Fold in the sour cream (or whichever other ingredient you chose to use).
- Stuff the filling in the avocado cup.
Whole Life Challenge Notes:

Lifestyle level players: Instead of the sour cream, you can either use an extra avocado or add 2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt to the tuna mix.
Kickstart level players: You can do any of the above or use sour cream or cottage cheese depending on your preference.
