Power Lunch for a Dollar

Short on time, money, and energy? Here’s a lunch with a punch of nutritious flavor that is quicker than fast food, won’t break the bank, and give you a mid day boost that you desperately need.

Power Lunch for a Dollar

1 can (5 oz) Tuna in water (not oil, ick!)
1/2 super ripe Avocado
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
dash pepper

Mix together in a bowl with a fork and then enjoy!

To be honest I didn’t actual measure the ingredients, but I’m guessing this is a very close estimate. I just sorta pour and mix and see how it looks and tastes to me, and wow was this tasty! I originally was going to put this wonderful tuna mixture in a whole grain wrap, but I was so hungry I just devoured it as soon as it was all a nice moist combination.

It literally took me five minutes to prepare AND eat.

By using avocado, I think this is a great alternative to what I used to do to make tuna by using a TON of mayo. Yes, the avocado still has a lot of fat, but it is healthy fat and contains MANY other great benefits.

Also, this little meal really does cost only a dollar to make (maybe a little more if the tuna and/or avocado aren’t on sale). Regardless, it is still a great deal and full of nutritious energy!

  1. Mmmm I love avocado! I just had some yesterday spread on toasted Ezekiel bread, topped with a little salt and pepper.
