Bored with your usual lunch options? Make this Keto avocado tuna bowl with tahini tamari paste and fall in love with lunch again.

Tuna, Hold the Mayo

You’ll notice this tuna bowl doesn’t rely on mayo, as many standard tuna salads do. While mayo is fine for Keto, I wanted to create something more unique with this recipe.

Instead, I added tahini sauce and tamari sauce for a bit of an Asian flair. If you’ve never had tahini sauce, it has a savory taste devoid of sweetness.

It’s made from sesame seeds, and the sauce usually adds a bit of lemon. Tahini sauce is thinner than tahini paste, which has the consistency of peanut butter.

This recipe also calls for a large avocado, which will amplify the creaminess.

Avocados: The Perfect Keto Food

Keto is all about the macros baby. In Keto-land, that means ditching the carbs and amping up the fat and protein.

Some people struggle with eating enough fat to stay energized on Keto or aren’t sure what fats are healthy for their diet.

Then they discover the mighty avocado. These fruits have negligible carbs and about 20 grams of fat per serving.

They’re awesome in salads, casseroles, baked goods, and even alone. Most people enjoy their mild taste and smooth texture.

The fat content in avocado is also a great asset in fighting the Keto flu, which some people experience when transitioning to a ketogenic diet.

But avocados have even more going for them than their taste and fat content. They’re also ripe with nutrients.

Eat avocado and you’ll be taking in B vitamins, fiber, folate, and vitamins K, E, and C, among others.

Basically, there’s a whole lot of good to unpeel here, from the joy of eating avocados to the benefits of eating them.

Speaking of Macros

OK, real talk here. It’s not always a picnic logging your meals and snacks, whether you do it with an app or with pen and paper.

That being said, tracking your noshing can benefit you in a couple of different ways. First, if you know you’re going to record your meals, you tend to be more mindful of what you eat.

The other reason is that you can get better results with Keto if you’re eating the right amount of macronutrients for your goal weight.

This free one question Keto calculator can tell you how much protein, carbs, and fat you should be eating. Start there, and refine as you go. Since everyone is different, you may need to adjust your intake as you go along.
