Due to our busy schedules, many of us are in a hurry these days. I can’t think of anything more delicious and easier than preparing this to have for when you are in a time crunch!
We’re all about packing our own lunches — in theory, anyway. But when it comes down to the actual act of making it, no matter how many great hacks and tips we have in our arsenal, sometimes we just get lazy. The pull of just grabbing a bite to eat later is too great and we give in to the endless cycle of spending more money on food than we really need to.
One fix that we’ve found really, truly works is lunch in a jar. Not only can you prep these meals in advance, they are the perfect self-contained meal. The only problem is they typically come in salad form, but lets face it, we can only eat so many green lunches in a week. These are also great for when you have to work late and don’t feel like preparing dinner. Make them up ahead of time so you can just pull them out of the fridge!
I can’t remember all of the times that I didn’t feel like going back out to pick up dinner and wish I’d had some of these already at my fingertips! You can make some of these on the weekend to prepare for your busy week…you’ll be so glad you did!
