There are variations of this recipe around the internet but my personal favorite is from Precision Nutrition's Gourmet Nutrition cookbook.
This is a 5-10 minute meal that is not only filling but functionally good for you! It makes one large or 2 smaller servings (based on your body's individuals needs) Feel free to play around with the beans or exclude the tuna all together and sub for mashed garbanzo beans for a mock-tuna vegetarian dish. Omit the yogurt in the dressing and you have a vegan dish ready to please!
What makes this recipe not only delicious but healthy?
Protein - key for our immune systems and our body's innate detoxification and bioelimination systems
Fat - especially the Omega-3 Fatty acids found in Avocado is great for transporting out toxins that are eliminated from cells, have an anti-inflammatory response in the body, and help with the absorption of all fatsoluble vitamins (many of which are crucial for immune health)
Fiber - good for digestive regulation and keeping our gut biome in balance by feeding the good bacteria that helps to facilitate the uptake and absorption of all the nutrients in our foods.
This is a WIN WIN WIN recipe all around!
Dressing (makes 16 servings @2Tbs each)
