When you’re low-carb/keto and you need a fast and easy meal that’s high in fat and protein, here’s your answer – Tuna Salad Avocado Bowl! It’s quick to whip up and provides many nutrients you need daily.
For this dish, I added some Asian ingredients such as Soy Sauce, Furikake, as well as Kewpie Mayo and Togarashi. Together, these ingredients create an Asian flavor that is surprisingly delicious and satisfying.
I’ve always been a fan of canned tuna ever since I was a kid. I remember my parents buying the giant 5 pounds can and making a giant bowl of tuna salad for the whole family to share. I have to say, it was delicious and one of my fondest memories!
So if you’re a tuna fan like me, you’re in luck because it’s the perfect low-carb/keto friendly ingredient. Plus, they last forever since it’s canned!
Tuna is a healthy protein option rich in omega-3 fatty acids and loaded with vitamins and nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin B, phosphorus and selenium and a good source of copper and magnesium.
Many of these nutrients have significant benefits to our health. However, being that tuna is a lean protein and low-carb/keto is a low carb, high-fat diet, it’d be best to combine it with something that’s high in fat. That’s where the avocado comes in!
Avocado is really a rockstar food when it comes to low-carb/keto. It’s one of the best healthy fats for the diet. In addition to being loaded with healthy anti-inflammatory fats, avocados contain around 20 essential vitamins and minerals!
Avocados also boosts heart health, reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome, fights free radicals, supports weightless, and also high in fiber!
Ok, I think I have provided enough reasons why you need this dish in your low-carb/keto life!
Now, let’s get started!

1) Gather all the ingredients.
2) Cut avocado into cubes and set aside. Here is how we cut our avocados if you’re interested. Make sure to save avocado shell for the bowls.
3) Open tuna can and drain out water.
5) Mix in avocados gently enough to just combine. You still want the avocado to be chunky, not mashed.
