Happy New Year!
I hope you got to kick off 2013 with good food, great company and a bit of movement.
Because of the rain, we had a lazy day at home. We spent the day cleaning up Christmas decorations and preparing dinner for friends. Daddy was in charge of breakfast while I went running, and we all had quick, easy lunches.
[Breakfast: Oats with blueberries, pears and chia for everyone; 2nd Breakfast for me: Scrambled eggs with feta and avocado; Lunch: Toast “pizza” for L, Avocado Tuna Salad over greens for me + Kombucha (my first!); Snack: Cashews and raisins + dark chocolate chips, clementine+ string cheese for L]
The Avocado Tuna Salad is something I’ve been making a lot lately. In place of mayo, I mash avocado and add a splash of lemon juice. I think it’s even better than the traditional version, and really simple. It makes 2-3 servings, but you could easily double the recipe for more.
Avocado Tuna Salad (print recipe)
- 1 can tuna (I use this one)
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 carrot, shredded
- 1 stalk celery, diced finely
- 1 scallion, diced (optional)
- 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, or about 1/2 small lemon
- salt, pepper and paprika to taste
Mash the avocado in a bowl, then add all ingredients and combine. Serve on bread, lettuce, crackers or as a dip for veggies.
We rang in the new year with traditional Pennsylvania pork and sauerkraut and potatoes. It’s a delicious way to kick off the new year!
Do you have traditional foods that you eat on New Year’s Day? Did you squeeze in a workout to kick off 2013?
