Shake up your routine with Eat Real Food’s Salad in a Jar

Eat Real Food is all about quick, easy, real food meals without compromising on nutrition or taste. Salads in a jar are a great way to achieve this as they last up to 5 days in the fridge. All you have to do is shake up the jar and pour straight into a bowl. And as long as you’re not throwing it around like a football, the dressing sits at the bottom of the jar until you’re ready to eat it. Which means no sad work salad for you!

This spring salad was created just for WeWork members, and is a great way to eat healthy during the busy work week. Make sure to check out all of our easy-to-make recipes. Enjoy!
