Amazing Avocado Tuna Salad (Daniel Plan Inspired)
Now that Lent is back, Jared and I are once again doing the Daniel Plan. This diet is inspired by Biblical principles that focus on the essentials of Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus and Friends . It is really not a bad lifestyle plan for anyone to adapt, and I hope to eventually make it a way of life versus just a “seasonal” diet for us..because it is just that, a lifestyle.
Like most lifestyle plans, saturated fats, processed carbs, and sugars are off limits with the Daniel Plan. Wholesome foods like sprouted grains, low glycemic fruits, and organic or lean meats are key. We have been enjoying more fruit like cantaloupe, berries, and substituting conventional carbs out for their whole grain counterparts. Overall, it has been a pretty smooth transition for us.
One thing that I was a little sad about was the fact that I couldn’t enjoy mayonnaise. When you love things like egg or tuna salad, this kind of becomes an issue..or does it?
After some brainstorming, I came up with a delicious recipe for amazing avocado tuna salad that is Daniel Plan inspired! It is tasty, jam-packed with flavor and provides a hearty does of heart-healthy omega 3’s!
To make this Daniel Plan inspired, no mayo tuna salad, I used a medium-sized avocado! Simply peel, core, and puree and avocado and use that in lieu of mayonnaise.
Avocado tuna salad tastes delicious, and honestly almost like mayo!
I love to enjoy my no mayo tuna salad chunky-style and on a bed of greens.
Even if you are not on The Daniel Plan, and just want to eat more wholesome, this recipe is for you!
