Not only are they trendy, the portion-controlled plates are easy and portable. Since many of us eat with our eyes, mason jars filled with vibrant colors and delicious healthiness are the perfect way to show off all the layers and textures of our meals before we dig in.

There are tons of mason jar recipes starting from balanced breakfasts to kick start your day, on to nutritious lunches to keep you energized, and five-star dinners that are sure to please. The possibilities are endless, so it would be a sin not to include delectable desserts.
