7 Beautiful Lunches Packed in Mason Jars

mason jar lunch

I'll admit, the mason jar trend has gone way too far. We're stuffing them with everything from flowers to glitter to brownie mix. But I'm not ready to toss mine out just yet, and here's why: They make gorgeous lunches. Fill one with layers of deliciously bright vegetables and suddenly that ho-hum salad is an experience for the senses. Here are 7 lunches packed in mason jars that will charm you into bringing a healthy meal to work with you every day of the week.

The key to making this work is to put heavy, wet ingredients at the bottom, and keep the greens up at the top. Otherwise, you're limited only by your imagination and the contents of your refrigerator!

I love these ideas. Just putting them in a mason jar makes them look so pretty.

I like the taco idea I would have to subtract the carrots. Scooping up a carrot with a tortilla chip just isn't my thing lol

Cool! I'm glad to see this wasn't suggested as an idea for KIDS' lunches. I'd never send them to school with glass! LOL

I would never have thought of using a jar like this.
