Spicy Tuna Avocado Boats

Spicy Tuna Avocado Boats (GF, DF, Paleo, GAPS)

What’s for lunch when you have celiac disease but you really want a tuna salad sandwich?

Well, to start I make a delicious, spicy tuna salad that I have always loved.

I use Safe Catch wild-caught tuna, which tests all their fish for heavy metals before use!

Then, I throw that tuna salad into an avocado, because avocados are more delicious, more nutritious and less expensive than gluten-free bread.

Then, I just surround it with bitter leafy greens like arugula that help to improve digestion by stimulating the bitter receptors throughout your entire digestive tract.

Finally, I top it off with cleansing herbs like cilantro to simulate the liver and keep inflammation low!

Win, win, win, win!

Here’s the exact recipe! ;)
