Healthy Kitchen: Portable Egg Cups

Growing up, I always thought eggs were reserved for special occasions only—whether at a restaurant with my grandparents or at baptism brunches. 

Add to this the fact that eggs had, at one time, come under considerable fire for their high cholesterol content (we’ll address that in a moment). It was enough to make me reserve eggs for an occasional breakfast food only. However, with so many health benefits associated with the consumption of eggs, we should be eating them frequently.

Super Mason Jar Salad

Prep Time:  20 minutes

Cook Time:  5 minutes

Yield:  4 Mason Jar Salads

Do you avoid salads because you hate lettuce? I hate lettuce. I really do. Spinach, iceberg, romaine, kale, whatever—I rarely use it in my salad making at home. I simply prepare and consume salads (while dining out) merely for the guts of it—the protein, the nuts/seeds, and the other vegetables.  

Mason jar salads are a huge hit for me and my clients. Not only are they easy to prep and pack but the combinations are endless—perfect for someone on the go who likes continued variety and perfect for those, like me, who really just enjoy the guts of a salad and no lettuce.
