The American Heart Association recommends that we eat fish twice a week for heart health. In particular, we should be aiming for high omega 3 fish such as tuna, salmon, mackerel, and sardines. And yep- even the canned versions count! I love canned tuna as a quick, easy lunch for work. Just make sure you buy the stuff canned in water, not oil. I love that this recipe is tucked into a tasty avocado for a double whammy on your healthy fats! Plus its supe cute too, which obviously is what’s most important.
