A few years ago, my standard lunch was a ham and cheese sandwich, a packet of potato chips, and a can of soda. I ate this every day for years! This was my go-to lunch because it was the only food that the store next door to my office sold. I didn’t have time to go anywhere else for lunch, so it was this or nothing.
Nowadays I eat much more healthily. To make that as easy as possible I usually have a grab-and-go lunch I can make at home and take to work with me. I sometimes make my lunch the night before, so I can grab it from the fridge as I head off to work the next morning.
This super-easy avocado tuna salad takes no more than a few minutes to make so now there is no reason you can’t enjoy a healthy lunch every day of the week. I like this recipe because you can even make it while you are sat at your desk at work. Just grab the ingredients as you leave your house, and then make it when you are ready to eat.
