You guys. I have a confession. I think I’m one of those annoying moms who actually likes packing lunches. Ugh, who have I become? What am I doing with my life?!
But can you blame me? It’s basically my life’s work to create food. To create easy, healthy, delicious meals for the whole family. And it’s a job that I love with my whole heart, so yes, I like packing lunches, making breakfasts, and coming up with easy, 30-minute dinners. (MOST of the time. 😉 )
These healthy, delicious meals don’t have to be perfect, but I am frequently looking for opportunities to add more nutrition in where I can, and every meal is an opportunity! It’s why I strive for meals that include protein, fats, fiber, and produce. And it’s also why I leave room for fun in meals. Because a meal doesn’t have to be perfect to pack in a lot of nutrition.
What to Include in Your Easy Tuna Salad Snack Plate
It’s easy. Simply whip up some easy tuna salad. I keep it really simple with the basics: tuna, mayo, celery, and onion. And a touch of salt and pepper if you want/need it. Four ingredients is all it takes!
Then we get to the extras for our snack plate. We definitely need some scoopers, I love endive and crackers for the job. Add in some healthy fats in the form of almonds or your favorite nut and then some sweetness from some fresh fruit. Easy and healthy – just how I like it.
How to Pack Your Easy Tuna Salad Snack Plate
There are a few products that I think make packing lunches really easy. My bento boxes by LunchBots (affiliate link) are the best! We use them a few times a week and what I love most about them? They make it really hard to forget an important lunch component!
I’ve talked a lot about the components I like to include in lunches/meals:
- starch/whole grain
There can definitely be some overlap, do what works for you!
