Mason Jar Lunches

These mason jar salads are perfect for a healthy office lunch, which can also be filling. There are so many variations of salads you can make, and it doesn’t have to be complicated either. This quick and simple mason jar hack will save you time, effort, and money! Prepare them all on a Sunday and you’ll be set for a week’s worth of lunches.

The only thing you need to think about is the order of layers in your mason jar; the quantities are up to you:

  1. Start with your dressing
  2. Crisp Ingredients
  3. Soft Vegetables
  4. Meats/Cheese
  5. Grains/Pasta
  6. Leaves
  7. Toppings

Close the lid and either take it to work or keep it in your fridge. These jars should usually last up to 5 days, so you are set for Monday through to Friday! If you are worried about the lettuce going limp, add it in each morning when you choose which jar to take to work.

Get creative and add whatever ingredients you like! It’s also a great way to use up leftovers.
