10 minute lunches: Tuna, cottage cheese, & avocados

Hello Pinners! Welcome! I hope you like this little site of mine! I find it incredibly odd how many people seem to love this recipe, but you’ve inspired me to share more of the randomness I serve to my family in my newsletter! So if you are looking for something new to try this week, head over to my sidebar and sign up for my newsletter to see what I’m recommending this week! I only share simple, delicious recipes that the whole family loves! Easy peasy!

And don’t miss out on my other 10 minute or less lunches!

Salmon and celery, Huevos rancheros, Quesadillas, Cheesy & spicy bean dip


More like a 3 minute lunch… I didn’t know what else to call today’s lunch except by the ingredients. But today’s recipe is super easy, super quick, super healthy and super, super weird. Yes I will admit that right off the bat! Weird. When I first saw somebody post it on Instagram, my first instinct was “EWWW!” I think I may have even said it out loud. But I have a strict no judgement policy unless I’ve tried it, and I really didn’t see what I wouldn’t like about it. It’s just that tuna and cottage cheese together don’t scream yummm… But it’s good! It’s really good, quick and filling!


It’s been just over a week that I have now been gluten free, I started in an attempt to prepare for allergy season, and I am so glad that I did! My mom, two sisters and I have all for various reasons gone gluten free, and the one sister that hasn’t is currently dying of allergies… If my very little allergy trend continues, then my no gluten is going to continue too! At least through May 😉 It’s really quite great!



Cottage Cheese


Combine and indulge.


By the way, this meal is Anabelle approved. She sits in her high chair and we share! She LOVES it.

    Thanks for the idea! What kind of tuna do you use..I keep hearing about mercury. Also, you might want to mention this one to your friend, Teresa, about the gluten free…you know her and her terrible allergies! She might want to think about it. 🙂

      I never really worried about it, but light tuna is supposed to be better than white. I do eat a lot of canned salmon too and mom said that she got started on it because it was a better option and way to cut out the mercury problem.

  • Suzanne

    Yes, I have heard that about the other tuna being better vs. the white. Thanks!

    I don’t know if you remember, but I used to eat cottage cheese, salmon, blueberries and flax seed for lunch when you were a senior in HS. Another weird lunch.

    I had a weird lunch today..a bunch of leftover fresh green beans, fresh spinach (both cooked of course), one slice of pineapple, and about 1 1/2 ounces of broiled chicken…lol…it was good…I got full with my water and just snacked on some blueberries and a couple of walnuts about an hour later…this is how I should eat all the dang time!
    Kiss that baby for day I will see her! 🙂

    I totally just tried this for lunch and I too was skeptical, but it was actually really good and satisfying! I’m so glad I found this on Pinterest!
