Pin-vestigated: Salad in a Jar 0

Pin-vestigated @

I am trying to eat healthier, but it is super hard with a 3 year old and a newborn. I mean, who has time for that?

I was searching on Pinterest and found this awesome pin about storing salad in a mason jar.

The pin claims that:
1. The salad stays fresh for up to 10 days (bonus because I buy my lettuce at Costco in bulk)
2. It helps you stay on track as far as eating healthy when you have no energy and/or time to prepare a salad (perfect!)

Well, I tried it and…. IT WORKS! My salad stays fresh for a crazy long time and I love that I can just grab a jar and have a perfectly portioned meal or snack. Now I have no excuses!

Besides, I love anything in a mason jar ;)

Have you tried this trick yet? Any other tips for quick and easy, healthy meals?

    Hi Jen,

    I was wondering what all you put in the mason jar? Was it lettuce only, or did you add additional veggies?

      I just did the romaine lettuce and used my foodsaver to seal them. I usually don’t add veggies to my salads so I didn’t even think of that. Hmm… I think I will add carrots and cucumbers next time!

    I’ve tried it and love it too! You can even put your dressing in the bottom and your toppings then your lettuce. That way if you need to eat good on the you can.

      Hmmm… I haven’t tried it with dressing. Did the salad stay as fresh for as long?
