Piyo Recipes Meal Plan Beach Body

Salad In Jars

I bought 5 quart-sized canning jars from a natural foods market near my house,  and now on Sunday night I take a 1/2 hour and assemble lunch for the week!  It’s a great time-saver, but more importantly for me it’s a brain-saver: now I don’t have to wonder what to eat for lunch, and my daily veggies are almost completely taken care of from this one meal!

Piyo Totals per salad:

  • 1 Protein
  • 5 Veg
  • 1 fat


  • Quart-sized mason jars (we love these)
  • Mixed salad greens
  • Carrots
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Broccoli
  • Protein of choice: I often use 1 chopped veggie burger or 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 1 Tablespoon dressing


Chop up veggies.

Layer into each jar:

  1. Salad dressing on the bottom
  2. Carrots or chickpeas next, to protect the greens from the dressing
  3. The rest of your veggies & protein

When ready to eat, empty the jar into a big bowl, mix up and enjoy!  If you’re on the go, mix the salad, then put it back into the jar and take it with you.
