Mason Jar Burritos
Mason Jar meals are super for bariatrics. The idea is to make up 5 on Sundays, and grab and go lunch for the week. The stacking in a jar is pretty, and a great way to portion out protein, vegies, dressing, and yumminess. Smaller jelly jars work better for bariatric portions. Thanks to Cindy for sharing this with PostOp Living last night.
