Easy & Healthy Snacks

Being that I'm working from home these days, I often find myself grazing a bit throughout the day as opposed  to eating a proper breakfast and lunch.  I love quick, healthy, and easy dishes that I can whip up and snack on over the next couple of days.  I try to combine most of the food groups in these type dishes so I can get the energy and nourishment that I need without much effort.  It's also a plus when they taste good :)  Enjoy one of my go-to 'snacks'!

Tuna, Parsley, and Potato Salad


1 pound gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 tins of canned tuna, drained and flaked
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
3 tbsp olive oil
12 1/2  tbsp parsley, minced
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp french mustard
salt and pepper, to taste


1. In a large pot, cover potatoes with cold, salted water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes until tender.  Drain and rinse briefly with cold water.

2. Whisk together oil, lemon juice, parsley, and mustard.  Season with salt and pepper. 

3.  Gently combine potatoes, tuna, and tomatoes.  Add dressing and again, gently combine.  Serve at room temperature or chilled over greens.


  1. Good stuff in this salad...perfect for lunch or a meal itself!

  2. Yes! This is perfect. I'm in need of these types of recipes right now, as I'm cooking for one for a few weeks. This looks easy and I imagine holds well for a couple days. Thanks!
