Ball Jar Lunch Asian Slaw

Anything I can prep and put in a jar to eat for lunch during the week on the go is a SCORE for me! I used to skip meals but planning ahead and taking less then an hour on Sunday to prep breakfast and lunch for the whole week has helped me keep my metabolism up and reach my fitness goals! I found this recipe from " mind over munch" on You tube and adapted it to my liking for ball jars! Here is the video 


Makes 3 jars (I use wide mouth quart)

What you need:
For the dressing
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 TBSP Braggs Aminos (or soy sauce)
1 TBSP Coconut Sugar (or honey)
2 TBSP Olive Oil
1TBSP Sesame Sesame Oil (or toasted Sesame Oil)
1 TSP ground ginger
1 clove diced garlic

12 oz bag of Rainbow Salad or Broccoli Slaw ( I like the chunks of Broccoli in the Rainbow Salad)
1 mango
1/4 cup of dried cranberries
Protein ( marinated fried Tofu, Grilled Chicken or prepared Quinoa )

I used Tofu it was in my frig, cheaper and less fat and calories but a good source of protein- TRY IT
To marinate and make Tofu...... I made a video in my private facebook group here
1) drain & SQUEEZE out the water from block of Tofu with a dish towel as much as you can.
2) crumble and fry the tofu in cast iron pan and drizzle olive oil, Mirin and Balsamic vinegar on it. fry it up nice and brown


What you do:

1) Mix the dressing first in a large bowl
2) peel and chop up the mango
3) add all the ingredients to the bowl with dressing, mix and add to jars! Done! Wahoo!!!
