30 Mason Jar Meals That Are Instagram Worthy

Let’s not try to lie to ourselves, we have all scrolled through our news feed and have seen that photo. The type of photo of the perfectly proportioned meal, delicately placed in a mason jar, titled #foodporn. We know we have all thought “Who in the world has time for that?! ” Life is hard though, we all have jobs, classes, families and unless you’re like 5 (or a man child) we have responsibilities. Do not fear, dear reader, having your very own photo of your meal everyone is envious of is easy. Most people however, do not do this for just the likes.They too have busy lives. It is for convenience and it is a great option compared to eating fast food. Mason jar meals are easy to use because you can bake in them and they can handle either hot or cold contents. Most meals can be readily available for you to eat during your busy schedule. All you need is a mason jar…or five and these recipes to get you started on your own mason jar meals.

Rise and Shine

1. Quick Breakfast

You can’t go wrong starting off simple. Bacon, eggs, store bought hashbrowns and some cheese are all a perfect combination to satisfy your morning hunger.

                9. Sushi in a Jar

                                17. Lasagna in a Jar

                                This can be paired with the garlic bread you stick in the toaster oven for five minutes and they will pair beautifully.

                                      Meatloaf is amazing! I might add some mashed potatoes underneath this in my jar because the two go together like salt and pepper.

                                        The best thing about chili is that you can make it spicy, mild, or hell-flavored and it will still taste great paired with corn bread.

                                                    27. Banana Bread

                                                    You can eat this as is or if you are a fatty like me, add tons of mini chocolate chips!

                                                      Nothing is better for you or more refreshing than nature’s naturally made dessert.

                                                        29. Cheesecake

                                                        Cheesecake is something you can add almost any topping too. Having it plain is always good if you aren’t sure what to put on top.

                                                        30. Butterfinger Pie

                                                        Leave this for your cheat day. Why? Because I have absolutely no idea how many calories are in here, nor do I want to know.
