Tomato Tuna Bites

A delicious, super tasty and easy high protein, low glycemic snack that will satisfy your hunger without making your blood sugar go up. These are definitely their best in the summertime when you can find firm, ripe, delicious tomatoes, which as you know are full of antioxidants including lycopene.

The fresh basil contains highly beneficial oils, and most of the benefits of basil come from the fresh leaves. Basil also contains cinnamanic acid, which enhances circulation, stabilizes blood sugar, and improves breathing. Basil is naturally anti-inflammatory. Many naturopathic physicians prescribe basil for diabetes, allergies, arthritis, and respiratory disorders like asthma.

The antioxidants in both the basil and the tomatoes work best when combined with a healthy fat, like the avocado oil mayonnaise in this recipe. Free radicals fight aging, cancer and protect you from the complications of diabetes.

This snack is easy to assemble, delightful to look at, and delicious to eat!


2-4 medium or large sized Roma tomatoes, sliced thickly
1 Tbsp approximately of Paleo (Primal brand is my favorite) avocado oil mayonnaise
Fresh basil leaves
1 can albacore tuna, packed in olive oil
Sriracha sauce, to taste


Slice tomatoes in thick slices, arrange on plate. Spread a small amount of mayo on tomatoes, top with fresh basil leaves (2-3 on each tomato slice), a spoonful of tuna, and dot with Sriracha sauce. Enjoy!
