I’ve been using meal planning to really help me through the midway point of my diet and I shared pics of my meal prepped salads on my healthyJenell IG where I put them in tubaware bowls. I have the best IG friends aka “my loves” because about 3 of them suggested to me in the comments of my salad prep pic that I try prepping my salads in mason jars. I have a ton of mason jars in various sizes so I thought to myself ‘why not?’
This is my first time trying it out and I forgot to put the dressing on the bottom like they said. And someone else mentioned that I should put the heavy veggies on the bottom with the lighter veggies i.e. the spring mix, on the top. It’s all good. I’ll try all their suggestions the next time around.
I made 5 salads that I plan to have as dinner for the week (my largest meal is always Lunch). It took me about 11 minutes to prep all 5!
Breakdown from bottom to top: Spring mix packed in
6 sunburst tomatoes
2 slices red onions
1/4 cup store bought Edamae salad
6 green olives
1/2 Hass avocado on very top
These mason jars are 20oz with wide necks. I get all my various sized mason jars from Target and Walmart
