Refillable Jars 

Shredded Veg Salad Jar: $20 (600gr) or small jar $10

Undressed, a seasonal mix of veg, leaves, herbs and sometimes Edamame Beans. Should last a week without dressing. Great as a side with your bacon and eggs, pop it in a sandwich or with your dinner protein. You can also stir fry it or make it into soup at the end of the week if you’re sick of it or if it’s not tasting as fresh as it was at the start of the week!

Josie’s Curly Fries: $15

Nigella gave us the idea to spiralize potatoes and make them into chips. Turns out they are super tasty cold, and last for a week (if you manage not to scoff them all) in a sealed jar. Perfect little crunchy treat for the lunchbox (because if your children are like mine they are constantly asking why everyone else gets packets of chips in their lunchboxes) but without all the packaging and additives. Just pure potato and oil (ha!), and maldon salt or chicken salt if you like.
