1. Layer your salad in a jar with dressing and heavy ingredients on the bottom.

This will keep the lettuce from getting soggy. A few minutes before you're ready to eat, shake the jar to mix everything up.

4. Swap out wimpy greens for sturdier stock.

Greens like shredded Brussels sprouts, shaved asparagus, and marinated artichokes won't wilt while resting in dressing for a few hours. A salad made with these will still pack a crunch at lunchtime.

5. Portion out one-pot meals ahead of time into microwaveable containers.

Make it easy for yourself to make a healthy and conscious choice — by packing flavorful meals ahead of time, there's no reason NOT to grab one on your way out the door.

6. Just bring what you can't get locally.

Bring a jar of irreplaceable homemade nut butter or hummus, then purchase a much-more-common apple or baby carrots to dip when you get to your destination. It cuts back on what you need to carry and makes sure the veggies are super fresh!

11. Blend it up and take it to go!

You can get a hearty meal into a portable form by blending it up. Aim for a smoothie with a balance of sugars (fruits), proteins (nuts), and vitamins (greens).

12. Give takeout containers a second life as disposable salad bowls.

The lids make them perfect for shaking!
