Why Food in a Jar Is the Fun Your Family Has Been Missing

Food in a jar might sound strange, but it can be a fun way to make full meals you can toss in your lunchbox. If you haven't tried preparing food this way, here are some easy recipes to get you started that the entire family will love.


1. Salted Turtle Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a fantastic make-ahead breakfast. Prepare them the night before, and you've got a morning meal ready to eat right out of the fridge. This recipe uses the natural caramel flavor of Medjool dates instead of caramel sauce. Cocoa powder and pecans, along with pure maple syrup, make it taste exactly like your favorite chocolate turtle treat.

2. Deconstructed Sushi

Sushi doesn't seem like a meal you'd eat out of a jar, but this is a fun deconstructed version of this Japanese favorite. All you have to do is layer your favorite sushi ingredients in a mason jar and keep it in the fridge until you're ready to enjoy it. Make a deconstructed avocado roll with rice, carrot, cucumber and avocado, or get fancy with some imitation crab or even tuna. We'd love to see some deconstructed sashimi.

3. Chicken and Dill Instant Noodles

Noodle cups are a quick and easy lunch, but they're packed with MSGs and enough sodium to choke a cat. Thankfully, it's easy to make your own instant noodles. All you need is some shredded chicken, rice noodles and frozen peas. Pour some hot water on top when you're ready to eat, and you've got the perfect DIY instant noodle cup.
