If your meal has a sauce or dressing that goes with it always make sure to add the dressing to the mason jar first. This will keep the rest of the ingredients in the jar from getting soggy throughout the day!
After you’ve added your dressing, be sure to add proteins (meats, fish, etc.) next. Adding proteins after dressing will protect the softer ingredients, like veggies from coming in contact with the dressing and getting wet.
The last thing you always want to add to your mason jar lunches is your greens! Putting your greens on top of all the other ingredients will make sure to keep them crisp and fresh!
