Mason jars are the new trend in portable meals. Yes, you heard right. How can this be? Think of mason jars as the perfect container for a quick and easy lunch. Just pile in your ingredients wet on bottom and dry and crunchier ingredients towards to top. Shake it all up and you're ready to eat.
Take these meals on road trips, to the office for lunch, or for a quick snack straight out of the fridge.
Here are a few ideas for fresh and easy meals in a mason jar:
Kale and grapefruit salad
Cous cous, golden raisin and chicken salad
Taco salad with crispy tortilla strips and romaine lettuce
Chili topped with low fat cheese and sour cream
Hummus topped with veggie strips
Peanut or nut butter topped with celery or pretzel sticks.
