I love making meals in a jar!
Meals-in-a-jar are great for storing or as portable meals! Customize
this burrito bowl with your favorite Mexican ingredients.
Be sure to layer your liquid ingredients on the bottom so they
don’t get the other ingredients soggy!
Here is an example of one I made….
2 Tbsp salsa
¼ cup beans/bean salsa
⅓ cup cooked rice/quinoa
3 oz cooked extra lean ground turkey,
chicken, or protein of choice
2 Tbsp low fat cheddar cheese
1 ½ cups lettuce/greens
1 Tbsp Greek yogurt (In place of Sour cream)
• Layer all of your ingredients into the jar. (I recommending only adding Greek yogurt if consuming
day-of or next-day– otherwise I’d wait until eating to keep other ingredients fresh).
• Store for eating at a later time.
• When ready to eat, pour the jar onto a plate or bowl to mix up and Enjoy!
• Lasts 4–5 days in the fridge.
