Nothing feels better than being prepared for the week! I’m totally obsessed with the practicality & ease of salad jars. Check out one of my meal preps that includes salad jars, zoodles & tempeh.
Meal 1 (Breakfast): Shakeology with mixed berries and 2 tsp. almond butter (1 red, 1 purple, 2 tsp.)
Meal 2 (Snack): Oatmeal with half a large banana and cinnamon (not shown) (2 yellow, 1 purple)
Meal 3 (Lunch M/W/F): Chicken salad jar with arugula, tomatoes, cucumber, chickpeas, and balsamic dressing, and an apple (1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 orange, 1 purple)
Meal 3 (Lunch T/Th): Egg salad jar with corn, tomatoes, red onion, mixed greens, and mustard vinaigrette, and an apple (1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 orange, 1 purple)
Meal 4 (Post-workout): Baked trout with bell peppers sautéed in 1 tsp. olive oil (1 red, 1 green, 1 tsp.)
Meal 5 (Dinner M/W/F): Zucchini noodles sautéed in 1 tsp. olive oil with ground turkey, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and 1/4 avocado (not shown) (1 red, 2 greens, 1 blue, 1 tsp.)
Meal 5 (Dinner T/Th): Tempeh with a side of mixed veggies with 1 tsp. olive oil and a 1/4 avocado (not shown) (1 red, 2 greens, 1 blue, 1 tsp.)
(Note: below are 16 oz salad jars but now I upgraded to 24 oz salad jars because it leaves a lot more room for the lettuce etc.)
This jar has balsamic dressing at the bottom, then I added chickpeas, tomatoes, cucumber, chicken, and arugula.

Q: Where do you get the black containers?
A: Click here to buy the same containers from amazon.
Q: Do you get bored of eating the same thing every day?
A: No at all! I switch it up on a weekly basis and choose my healthy favorites that I don’t mind eating often. I also add different seasonings to keep things interesting (check out the 21 Day Fix & 21 Day Fix EXTREME eating plans for seasoning recipes).
Q: Do you pre-cook all your food at the beginning of the week or do you just cut it up and package it? Does the food stay fresh all week?
A: I personally like to pre-cook all my food! I keep it properly refrigerated and find that it stays fresh up to 5 days. If you prefer, you can totally freeze the last 2 days or cook 2-3 days at a time.
Q: Can you put any of these meals in the freezer?
A: I personally don’t but I know people who do but just remember to thaw it in time.
Q: So lost…use the colored containers and dump into the larger ones?
A: The colored containers are from 21 Day Fix/21 Day Fix EXTREME. I use it to help me measure out the proportions of all my food then put it into my black chefland containers for organization and mobility reasons.
