You don’t have to feel low when you’re going low-carb

A low-carb diet is more complex than just cutting bread out of your diet. While trying to meet your nutritional needs and still abiding by the limits of your diet, you can’t just grab lunch on the road.

Everything needs to be planned and calculated, but not always time-consuming, boring and a breath away from starvation.

This delicious and nutritious well-balanced salad in a jar is a great grab and go lunch for work, picnics and even when you don’t want to be an annoyingly hard to feed guest.

Comfort in a jar

The warmer weather doesn’t completely take away the comfort of a warm hearty meal, especially in the middle of a day of hard work. Leftover dinner is great if you have it on hand, but if your food savers have been freshly cleaned out, a roast veg and millet jar can be the perfect, filling and hearty lunch you need. Packed with the goodness of all those veggies and high fibre millet.
