hat’s your favourite meal of the day? Mine is definitely lunch – the time when I can take a break from all those endless tasks and relax with bowl of something delicious and healthy!

Isn’t it a great idea to pack all your favourite ingredients into a cute tall jar and take with you to the office? I bet your colleagues will envy!

It seems so easy to throw such lunch together, but actually there are some rules on how you need to assemble it. But not a rocket science anyway:

  1. First, you need a tall jar with a lid – to keep the lunch together while on the go.
  2. Second, place the dressing to the bottom of the jar.
  3. Then place of the diced hard vegetables, like carrots and cucumbers – in this way they will not soak up the dressing and will assure those pretty layers.
  4. Add healthy carbohydrates – quinoa, wind rice, barley, whole grain pasta, etc.
  5. Top up with protein – fish, meat, poultry or beans, if you prefer a vegetarian options.
  6. Sprinkle with favorite seeds and fresh greens like spinach, arugula or any salad of your choice.

The variety of options is really endless, so don’t be shy to experiment!
