This Cobb Salad in a Jar recipe is a great way to make your weekdays easier by preparing them ahead of time so you can grab and go. It’s a nutritious and filling salad packed full of protein.
My weekday schedule is busy all year round but summer always seems keep me just that much busier with the kids home from school. Some days I find myself running around and in need of quick and easy mid-day meal options for myself.
Keeping Burnbrae Farms Eggs2go in my fridge is a great way for me to solve at least this part of my weekday challenges. Eggs2go are a snackpack of two hard cooked, peeled eggs that are ready to eat. They provide me with an easy, convenient and nutritious snacking option when I am on the go or don’t have the time to make something myself. No more fooling around trying to peel eggs! On my busiest days I just grab a pack from the fridge and eat as is or with a sprinkle of salt and pepper for the energy I need to tackle the day.
Eggs2go also make my weekdays easier as I can use them to quickly prepare a weeks worth of healthy, nutritious lunches, like the cobb salad in a jar that I am sharing with you today. The cobb salads are good for up to five days in the fridge and they just couldn’t be easier to make thanks to Eggs2go!
