Mason Jar Lunches

The Case For Packing Your Lunch in a Mason Jar

Here at the office, we're big fans of mason jar meals; we've found you can avoid the hassle that comes with plastic food containers if you bring your lunch to work or school in a Ball jar. These glass storage containers are easy to clean and not prone to residue. We love that they seal, which prevents leaking in your bag, and they leave no plastic flavor in food. Best of all, they can hold anything from salads (think of all the stacked Caprese salads you could enjoy for lunch!) to various types of soup. You can heat up the contents in a microwave and eat it right out of the jar, if you like, to avoid cleaning more dishes. They're also reusable, affordable, and eco-friendly. Next time you find yourself searching frantically for that one lid that fits your plastic Tupperware container, I say think again and reach for the mason jar instead.

How do you bring your food to work?

How could I have not thought of this before now?

They do make pyrex food storage containers, dontchaknow. That would diminish the need for long handled utensils...and they pack easier too. Though jars are useful for packing soups and drinks because my pyrex containers are not leak proof.

I also am not trusting of plastic. I save all sorts of empty glass salsa, pasta sauce, even olive jars for food storage.
