Let me introduce you to my all-time favorite office lunch—the soup and salad Mason jar lunch combo. When I was working in an office, I brought this exactly pairing—one Mason jar with soup and one Mason jar with salad—for lunch so often that it kinda became a thing with my coworkers. I started a bit of an office wide revolution.
Why is this combo (and these containers) so trend-worthy? Lots of reasons! This is the perfect amount of food to make for a filling, nutritious lunch. Mason jars are food-safe, sturdy, and incredibly affordably (these hexagon beauties I found on clearance at my local hardware store for $1.76 for a four-pack). Mason jars are the perfect vehicle for heating up soup in the break room microwave (just remove the metal lid and cover loosely with a paper towel, stir, and eat!).
