here's how you build your jar...

Dressing – lemon juice, honey, and shredded mint leaves
Sturdy veg – red peppers and sugar-snap peas, or cucumber
Citrus fruit – (not for the faint of heart) – grapefruit or lemon, wedged
Complex carbs – brown rice, quinoa or sweet potato
Leafy greens – spinach, or pak choi or pea shoots
Graze goodies – any punnet from your graze box

ingredients

  • 1 juiced lemon
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 10 torn mint leaves
  • 1 chopped red pepper
  • sugar snap peas
  • 100 g cooked mixed grains
  • 50 g raw spinach
  • 1 punnet natural energy nuts
  • 1 punnet omega booster seeds
  • 1 punnet graze bountiful berries

instructions

Pour in your dressing and use sturdy veg for the base. This way, the other ingredients won’t absorb any of your dressing and get soggy. Add the wedges of citrus fruit here for some zing, too

Pad out the middle with lighter bits. Layer on your carb of choice before covering it with some leafy greens for another moisture barrier

Add a nutritious layer of graze. Get that extra pop of flavor and crunch with a punnet of graze – from nuts, seeds to dried fruit

Pop on the lid and refrigerate until hungry. Shake up your jar or container and enjoy!
