Salad in a Jar!

We're always looking for quick and easy ways to have healthy food on the go. Mason Jar salads are super easy to make, can keep for up to 5 days in the fridge, and are easy to grab when you are quickly running out the door. Grab your jar, a fork, and maybe a plate or bowl. Place them in a lunch box or bag and ta'da! You've got yourself a healthy lunch in zero minus 30 seconds. When you are ready to eat the salad, simply dump the contents on your plate or in your bowl, and enjoy!

You can make one BFG (Big F-cking Salad) on Sunday which is what I do or you can mix and match your salads so you aren't eating the same thing every day.

Here's what you will need:

  1. Five Large Mason Jars

  2. Dressing of choice. Make sure you put the dressing in first and at the bottom of the jar. This prevents your ingredients from getting soggy.

  3. Protein of choice

Vegetarian protein, 1 cup

Meat eaters, 4-6 oz

Any bean (black, kidney, pinto, lima, garbanzo, etc), lentils, nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, brazil nuts), seeds (flax, sunflower, chia, hemp hearts), Avocado

​Turkey, chicken, salmon, trout, cod,

4. Add a grain if you want (quinoa, wild rice, corn chips)

5. Choose 2-3 different veggies other than lettuce

6. Choose your lettuce
