Mason Jar Meals

–> Last week one of my colleagues started bringing her lunch in a mason jar. I didn’t think anything of it until I saw her shaking the jar so I asked her about it. She started meal prepping her salads and smoothies with the mason jars. So this week I decided to give it a try because I always pack a lunch for work, but forget to pack something for class in the evening. Plus, after looking at my bank statements (food, food, food, gas, food, more food, eyebrows, food), I needed something that would seem quick and easy AND save me some money.

This week’s lunch/dinner: 

  1. Monday and Tuesday: Salad
  2. Wednesday and Thursday: Shrimp alfredo pasta

I guess you can use a regular container, but I think the mason jars are cuter :). And I like to shake the jar lmao.

General Instructions: 

  1. always put you dressing, sauce, etc at the bottom.
  2. items that won’t soak up the dressing, sauce
  3. items that are more absorbent
  4. lettuce, pasta, etc
  5. protein

Salad mason jar (picture below)

  1. Olive garden salad dressing: enough to cover the bottom and a little more ( I don’t like my salads to be soaked in dressing)
  2. Handful of shredded carrots
  3. Handful of craisins
  4. Couple of mushrooms
  5. Pack it with spinach
  6. Sprinkle some croutons and voila!!
