This is so easy to make and surprisingly delicious! Great if you have a panini press at home, but I am sure you can roast in the oven or fry in a pan as well to get the same result!

  • 1/2 c. tuna, white, canned, wild-caught
  • 1 bell pepper, red, fresh, organic
  • 1 oz. avocado, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 2 slc. sprouted whole grain bread, from organic grains

Use 1 tbsp of coconut oil to grease panini press once heated up. Place 1 slice of SWG bread in the panini press, fill with 2 ounces of drained canned tuna (approximately 1/2 of a small can) sprinkle chopped red pepper and sliced avocado. Top with another slice of SWG bread and press until warm and toasty!

*As a Protein Type, you can count this as 2 protein, 1 fat, and 2 carb (avocado can count as a carb for Protein Types).

*For variation, I sprinkled lemon juice and pepper before closing the sandwich. You can try other ingredients such as red peppers, onions or whatever you please!"
