Here is how we make healthy mason jar lunches for the week at our house! Check out the short video below to see the step-by-step instructions.
Here is what you will need:
2 cans organic black beans
1 cup cooked organic red quinoa
1 cup sprouted organic mung beans (it’s easy)
1 1/4 cup raw organic pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
5 organic bell peppers
2 organic cucumbers
10 organic green onions
Here is the amount to place in each jar:
1/4 cup pepitas
2 green onions
1 cup cucumber
1 cup bell pepper
1/2 cup quinoa
1/2 cup mung beans
1/2 cup black beans
Place the jars in the refrigerator and grab-n-go. When ready to eat, dump on a plate or bowl and enjoy!
This meal has around:
32 grams of protein (remember RDA for protein is about 46 g for women and 56 g for men)
16 grams of fiber (most Americans barely get 15 grams of fiber in a entire day. RDA is 25 g women/ 38 g men)
20 grams of healthy fats!
650 calories (I eat the whole jar myself, Karen usually can only finish half the jar before she gets full)
Oh and….0 Cholesterol!!!
