Happy Desk Lunch! Tuna Avocado Bowls

If you’re like many Americans, you probably have a desk job, at which you sit 7-9 hours per day, and/or eat your lunch at said desk most of the time.

And sadly, I do it too. And sometimes it can get challenging to pack good meals. You have to plan ahead or you end up eating junk. You have to bring stuff you like, because, when you’ve had a rough day, awesome food is just more appealing than boring food. However, the inspiration to write a blog post about it didn’t come until I stumbled upon this tumblr, called “sad desk lunch”. It is basically a running photo blog of the meals people eat at their desk. Some don’t look too bad, but most to me look pretty, well, sad.

But don’t worry, I’m here to save you from the boredom! Every now and then I’ll start posting the meals I eat for lunch at my desk. They’ll usually be either portable or made from ingredients that can be stored an assembled in a typical office kitchen. My first recipe is tuna avocado boats with Dijon mustard and dill. They’re almost Paleo (minus the Greek Yogurt) and delicious!

Tuna Avocado Bowls


11/2 ounces tuna, canned in water

1 TB 2% Greek yogurt

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 stalk of celery

1 pinch dried dill weed

1 hass avocado

3 grape tomatoes

Drain the tuna and empty into a bowl (you could probably use a coffee cup in a pinch). Add yogurt and mustard and stir until well mixed. Add celery and dill weed and do the same. Halve the avocado and remove the pit. Scoop the tuna into the avocado and top with tomato. And enjoy your happy desk lunch.
