Mason Jar Salad Recipes!

Mason Jar Salads

Since posting the mason jar salad technique I have been getting a lot of requests for some specific salad combos. For those of you who don’t consider yourself “creative” types I have created three mason jar salads just for you.

To be completely honest, I used to struggle with creating my own combinations so hopefully these will help get you started and even inspire you to make your own awesome combinations!

For all the salads below layer ingredients in the order they are listed. You don’t have to use mason jars but they are fun and keep everything from getting soggy. If you choose to make them ahead in a tupperware, keep the dressing separate until you are ready to eat.

Crockpot Shredded Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken

Life went from zero to sixty in a matter of a week with the start of the new semester. After my first day of classes I decided it was time to bust out the trusty crock pot since spare time is a bit scarce these day.
Between homework and Beachbody Coaching, I have been one busy bee. This shredded chicken seriously takes about 3 minutes to get into the crock pot. You can make it as spicy of as mild as you want and the best part is… (drum roll please)…. only 4 ingredients and so much flavor. WIN.

Now that school is done (for a bit) and I am finally on the upswing from this nasty chest cold its time to jump back on the wagon.

Perfectly Cooked Brown Rice

Rice_1

We eat A LOT of brown rice in my house, well, since I started cooking it in the oven. You probably think I’m crazy, but just trust me. I used to hate making brown rice because it took forever and never came out right. Sticky, gummy, under-cooked, you name it, I have experienced it. This recipe right here is a game changer, so much so, I have it taped to my rice container! It only takes a few  minutes to prep, then its off to the oven. Perfect EVERY time!

Now I have a large batch of perfectly cooked brown rice ready for quick lunches and dinner all week. Continue reading…

Clean Taco Seasoning

Taco Seasoning

So, I love tacos. Taco salad, crunchy tacos, soft tacos, chicken, beef, whatever, no taco discrimination here! What I don’t love is MSG, preservatives or sodium. This taco seasoning gets rid of all the garbage and tastes DELICIOUS! You can adjust the quantities to your family’s liking but right now I would say it’s darn near perfect. Not too hot, with the perfect balance of flavors.
