Salad in a Jar

  • Do you have trouble preparing a healthy lunch for yourself every day?

  • Looking to maintain your weight or possibly lose a few pounds?

Salad in a jar is my answer to all of the above. Read more about how I vacuum-pack Romaine lettuce once a week to carry in my lunch bag every day. It’s quick, saves money, and best of all, helps me keep my calorie intake where it needs to be despite my vicious sweet tooth.
