The tedious daily task of planning your breakfast, lunch and possibly portable dinner while you drive your kids to their various sports games and swimming lessons…it will haunt parents forever.

Juggling between something you want to eat and something you should eat.

Simple and Healthy Mason Jar Meals To The Rescue

 1. Breakfast Parfait á la Jar!

The best thing about this recipe is that it requires no cooking! Although parfaits are usually a breakfast, there’s no reason you can’t make this for your lunch as well! Grab some steal cut oats, Greek yogurt, berries of your choice, chia seeds and a little organic peanut, cashew or almond butter (not all three, silly). Add these ingredients in your own order and watch, as your empty mason jar becomes a beautiful and healthy masterpiece.

 2. Breakfast Egg and Veggie Jar

This particular portable meal calls for a shorter mason jar so that it can cook properly. Chop asparagus, your choice of cheese, and onions, and put them in the jar (fillinf about a quarter of the jar. Then crack 2 eggs, whip them, and pour the egg on top of the vegetables in the jar. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place jars on baking sheet and cook for 15-20 (or until desired crispiness).

 3. Granola Jar

You’ll need organic oatmeal, yogurt, chia seeds, bananas, honey and walnuts for this one! As you can see, you can use your imagination to work around any ingredients you don’t have… No walnuts? Use almonds! No honey? Use maple syrup! Oh yeah, and use dark chocolate in this one if you’ve got a sweet tooth! Again, place the ingredients in your desired quantities, spin the lid on tight and throw it in your bad for lunch!

4. Lunch-time Mango, Black Bean Jar Salad

Chop up some mango and avocado, and even some sheep’s milk feta cheese! Open and rinse half a can of mixed beans and add them together in a bowl. Create a dressing with honey, apple cider vinegar and a touch of honey. Mmmm… this is making me excited for lunch already.

 5. The Leftover Lunch Jar

What did you have for dinner last night? I’m going to bet that a common protein staple in your home is chicken. So here’s a great lunch to make with your leftovers! Chop the chicken into small pieces and use your leftover rice or pasta, or potatoes from dinner. Chop up some red and orange peppers, and onions (grill them for added flavor).

Add an organic peanut sauce, shake the jar and heat it up at work for lunch (or dinner on the go).
