I'm obsessed with this simple yet genius meal prep hack from the incomparable Queen of Clean Eating Allison Tibbs. Using mason jars you can pick up on Amazon or any kitchen supply store you can prep delicious salads and grain bowls that will last for several days without getting your veggies soggy using Allison's layering technique. Seriously, letting these suckers "marinade" in your favorite dressing and ingredients makes these salads tastier AND healthier than any quick serve salad joint and are easy to throw together.
Here's what to do and three of Allison's signature recipes. Start by adding your favorite dressing (I like basic olive oil and balsamic). Then add your protein (chicken, salmon, tofu, ground turkey), cheese (feta crumbles, fresh mozzarella, cheddar cubes), grain (rice, quinoa), beans (chick peas, black beans, edamame) and any of your favorite non leafy greens and "fix'ins" (cucumbers, broccoli, sweet potatoes , mushrooms, tomatoes, Brussel sprouts, peppers - anything you like). And then add your leafy greens (kale, spring mix, fresh basil, romaine). Really pack all those veggies in there! Add your lid and store in the fridge until ready to eat. Just pop the top and enjoy!
