If you’re looking for a quick, low carb, and healthy meal idea…you’re going to love these Tuna Avocado Lettuce Wraps! This keto friendly lunch recipe has under 5 grams of carbs per wrap, takes around 2 minutes to prep, and comes packed with protein!
Start this recipe by draining 2 cans of tuna (packed in water) and putting your drained tuna into a large mixing bowl. Whether you use solid white or chunk light is completely up to you!
Follow your tuna with 1/2 cup of cheddar or other cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice, 1/2 an avocado, 1/2 container of plain Greek yogurt, and a pinch of black pepper.
Don’t have Greek yogurt? Use cottage cheese or your favorite mayonnaise!
Mix all of those ingredients together until your avocado is mixed in. Speed this process up by using the back of a fork to mash in your avocado as you mix it.
Did you know? The easiest way to cut an avocado is to take a sharp knife and just circle around it. After cutting, you can use a spoon to easily scoop it out.
