    We're all about packing our own lunches — in theory, anyway. But when it comes down to the actual act of making it, no matter how many great hacks and tips we have in our arsenal, sometimes we just get lazy. The pull of just grabbing a bite to eat later is too great and we give in to the endless cycle of spending more money on food than we really need to.

    One fix that we've found really, truly works is lunch in a jar. Not only can you prep these meals in advance, they are the perfect self-contained meal. The only problem is they typically come in salad form, and let's be real, we can only eat so many green lunches in a week. Ahead, find three creative jarred lunch recipes that aren't just leafy greens.
