This may be the ultimate lunchtime hack: a just-add-water homemade soup that’s packed with veggies, tofu, and quick-cooking noodles. In the cold winter months, we suggest prepping 3 or 4 jars on Sunday (feel free to switch up the veggies) so lunch is packed for the whole week.

Thanks to a rainbow of colorful veggies and a layer of cheese, this stacked salad looks (almost) too pretty too eat. It’s packed with lean protein, whole grains, and vitamin C, but tastes just as good as your favorite store-bought burrito. To prevent it from browning, add the diced avocado on the day-of.

Hummus lovers, rejoice! This jar incorporates the tahini-laced puree right into the salad, so you can enjoy the creamy dip in each and every bite. The herb-packed tabbouleh packs a punch and adds fresh lemony flavor to the arugula and chickpeas. Don’t forget the pita chips for a satisfying crunch.
