    i don't have pictures but hubby and i cut up veges and fruit so we can just grab and go.. we will also precook meat at the beginning of the week so all you have to do is reheat and fix an easy side... i work out after work and get home around 7pm so this helps.. my hubby works nights so on top of prepping he will make dinners for me so all i have to do is reheat... lunches are sometimes leftovers from dinner the night before or i will do deli meat, cheese, cucumber... love the mason jar salads and will have to look into that..

    I don't have any pics, but I typically prepare my lunch the night before. I take leftovers for lunch so there is always a good variety.

    Hearts...that's so funny! I was thinking that doesn't look too appealing in that jar! I bet it looks more tastey once you pour it out onto your plate or bowl! I may give this a try. :-)

    @JodyHart2014 So I wasn't the only one! lol I like the look of it in the jar, it's pretty but couldn't imagine stickin my fork in it to eat it that way. Let me know what you think when you try it, I'll do the same. I need to get some Mason jars and I wanna order some of those white screw on lids so I won't have to deal with the regular lids and seals.

    Love these types of threads... nice to see the variety everyone tries out for meal prep etc. :)

    @JodyHart2014 Oh wait until you discover the 'overnight oats' threads... you do your oatmeal prep like the salad jar prep... very cool :) Tons of ideas!

    Now if we all buy stock in the Ball Mason Jar company we're set. Or they could just send us free coupons for jars. ;)

    About once a month I make a lasagne and a pie, using whatever I have on hand and saving the recipe as I go. Then I cut them up in portions and put them in the freezer. Take one out and put it in the fridge before I go to bed and then warm it up in the microwave at work.

    If you want something healthy and quick and easy, then quorn is a really good source of protein. Being a veggie it's a must for me!
    If you get quorn fillets, lightly fry them in fry light, takes about 10 minutes, cook some cous cous, add in whatever else you would like (I normally go for sweetcorn and kidney beans) then mix it all together with pesto and you have a really healthy tasty meal! It also keeps quite well and can be reheated or eaten cold.

    I do all my cooking for breakfasts/lunches on Sunday. I also chop all the veggies and make sauces for dinners which I cook fresh each night.
