Can you believe it's almost 2017?! How did that happen? Even though we're still in the middle of the holiday season, I'm sure a lot of people have started thinking about their goals for the new year. 

As an RD, I think it's important to encourage people to set reasonable and attainable goals. That's why I'm such a huge advocate of food prep! It's an easy way to help people get their healthy eating habits back on track and anyone can do it!

Everyone struggles with different areas of healthy eating, but one of the most common is lunch! While it's easy to head out to lunch multiple times per week with your coworkers, it can lead to unhealthy choices and get expensive quickly. 

Packing your lunch is a great way to ensure you eat a healthy lunch every day, although it does require a little planning. Mason jar salads are the perfect solution! They can be prepped ahead of time for the entire week and all you have to do is grab one out of the fridge each day!

Plus the flavor combinations are endless! To make it easier, I rounded up 12 recipes to get you started! Which one will you try first for lunch?
