DIY Mason Jar Healthy Snack Kit


I really need to start eating healthy.
I've put on a few pounds and it's time to do something about it!

I saw a great idea for a healthy snack kit using a Mason Jar on Pinterest.

If you are a regular follower you know I don't spend too much time in my kitchen, other than decorating it that is. 



Actually the only other food related item I've posted in the past 4 years is my healthy zucchini bread recipe. If you haven't tried it... it's delicious!




This idea however, made me want to write a post. 




The insert being sold for the Mason Jar kit I saw on Pinterest was quite costly.

But while eating a cup of Dole red grapefruit last night
I had a great idea to recycle the little plastic cup.

I was really hoping it would fit...

and sure enough the little plastic cup sat right inside the lip of a wide mouth Mason jar.

Perfect fit!... and free!

I filled the Mason jar with cucumbers and red peppers then filled the plastic cup with hummus.

The lid screws on tightly and it's ready to go!

A perfect healthy snack on the go.

Fill the jar with peanut butter and celery... Nutella and pretzels? (ok not so healthy) 

Ranch dressing and carrots?
Caramel and apples?

Oatmeal for a travel breakfast?

What healthy snack would you carry in these great jars?
