Nutritional values

The combination of avocado and fresh tuna makes for a heart-healthy cocktail of fatty acids. Both foods are full of monounsaturated fatty acids, which drive the "good" HDL cholesterol in the blood upwards. Tuna also contributes many omega-3 fatty acids that keep triglyceride levels in check.

Freshness is the key to this recipe. It is best to pre-order the tuna in "sushi grade quality" from the butcher and get a fully ripe avocado fom the store.
