When I came across people using mason jars for actual meals, for some reason, it blew my mind.

There are a few reasons to give this a try, for instance, it's a healthier option than BPA plastic containers that also release chemicals into your food (Gross!). It's long lasting, provided you don't drop it and pretty easy to clean.
It may not have been a popular alternative for lunch boxes in the past but after you feast your hungry eyes on this list of mouth-watering meals all neatly packed into a mason jar, you'll probably ditch those bulky plastic boxes for these.
