With our lives so busy, with work and family activities, it’s hard to have time to fix good meals in a hurry.

Our “Food On The Go” offers all of us easy pre- made, delicious, solutions for everyone. These recipes can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. The ingredients can be varied according to your taste and likes.

Fruit and Granola Breakfast in a Jar

Fruit and Granola Breakfast In A Jar

Layer your favorite yogurt on the bottom, then add a layer of your favorite granola, then a layer of your favorite fruit. You can alternate this until the jar is full. Top with either yogurt or granola.

To eat this, take a spoon all the way to the bottom. As you pull the spoon up you will have a taste of each layer. Delicious.

Salad in a Jar

Salad In A Jar

The secret to “Salad in A Jar” is all in the order in which you layer everything. The dressing goes on the bottom. Use your favorite salad dressing, about 4 Tablespoons full. Then layer with other ingredients like cut cherry tomatoes, cut up cucumbers, carrots, celery, anything you like in your salad. Then layer the protein, cut up turkey, chicken, left-over steak whatever you like. Last you add the greens. When ready to eat, you just shake the jar to mix the salad dressing into the other ingredients and eat out of the jar, or put into a bowl. The best salad ever!
