Making your own homemade lunch bowl is a great way to save money and stick to a healthy diet!
Tips to keep your lunch bowls fresh
- keep your dressing or sauce separate until just before you serve (unless the recipe states otherwise)
- keep leafy greens away from wet ingredients- mason jars are great for layering
- store in a glass meal prep container (keeps your food from absorbing flavors)
- store no longer than 4 days- chicken, rice, and most vegetables start to decline drastically after 4 days
- avocado- add it fresh
