To replicate this for yourself, all you have to do is combine the ingredients in a bowl and it can be served hot or cold.

The meal is as nutritious as it is tasty, with the tuna providing protein, vitamins and minerals, including B-Complex vitamins, vitamins A and D and much-needed iron.

Meanwhile, the basmati rice provides complex carbohydrates and the avocado provides a good dose of healthy fats.

Thousands who saw the simple dish were inspired.

‘Omg this is one of my favorite combos. Make it tomorrow,” one person said.

“Yum, thanks for the inspo,” added another.

But not everyone was on board with the idea, with some questioning whether the fitness guru could eat tuna given the fact that she is currently pregnant with her second child.

‘Wait. But I thought pregnant women shouldn’t eat tuna. Am I being lied to?’ one woman placed.

Another explained: ‘They can have it in moderation’.

It is generally safe for all population groups, including pregnant women, to eat 2-3 servings of any type of tuna or salmon per week, canned or fresh.

However, due to the high mercury content, it is not recommended that women eat more than this.

‘Like any mum it’s been a process to work out what my toddler will and won’t eat each day. People often ask me what Arna eats and if she is a picky eater…I say yes and no!!’ Kayla wrote and shared a series of images.

‘She is never picky about WHAT she eats…but when it comes to the LOOK or SHAPE or COLOR of her food, that’s when the tantrums start!!

‘Last week my lovely girl who loves to eat oatmeal decided she would only eat BLUE oatmeal now. Honestly this kid.’

To make the oats blue, Kayla chose to add mixed blueberries along with the oats and milk.

Eat fish during pregnancy

* Fish is a highly nutritious food and an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin D, Iodine and omega-3 fatty acids. All of these nutrients provide important health benefits for you and your baby when you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

* The concern with eating fish is that the high mercury content in some types of fish can damage the nervous system of babies or young children.

* While all fish contain some level of methylmercury, most fish in Australian waters have very low mercury levels. For most people, this mercury from fish is not a health risk.

* The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend eating one or two fish meals a week for good health. There are only a few types of fish that the authorities recommend limiting in the diet – these are billfish (swordfish/widemouth and marlin), shark/flounder, orange croaker and catfish.

* Pregnant women, women planning pregnancy and young children should limit their intake of shark (flakes), broadmouth, marlin and swordfish to no more than one portion per fortnight, with no other fish to be eaten during those fortnights .

* Two to three servings (one serving is 150 grams) of other types of fish are quite safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women or for women planning pregnancy.

* 2-3 servings per week of fish with lower levels of mercury (see below) is quite safe.
