Happy Thursday babes!!! Want an easy lunch idea?? Prep some salads this weekend in a mason jar! They give you the perfect portions and make meal prep easy, what southerner doesn't already have a 1000 mason jars? I know I do. This one is also really good when you're tired of the boring turkey sandwich but still need to meet your protein goals and feel good about it at the same time. I would love to hear if you make this one. My husband loves so it so I make this one often!
