Prep Endless Homemade Mason Jar Soups With This Handy Chart

By , Tricia Silverman, RD
Mason jars are trending—not only for crafts, but also for people who are looking for fun, fresh and fantastic new ways to get or stay healthy. Mason jar salads and Mason jar oatmeal have had their moment, but the latest, greatest meal-prep project is Mason jar soups.

Warm, filling and versatile, soups can be eaten as a meal or snack any time of day, and the pint-size nature of the Mason jar makes them perfect for portion control. Research also shows that eating a lower calorie soup before your meal may help reduce total calorie intake over the course of the meal. Not bad for a dish most of people relegate only to sick days and snow days.

The best part? With just a few ingredients, you can mix and match delicious soups that will never leave your diet feeling boring. With this formula, the flavorful, healthy possibilities are endless.

A lot of these ingredients are new to me, just starting with the base. I may have to try and experiment! Report
I asked about vegebase-- but I found it. happy day all. Report
Looks great! What is Vegebase in # 6? Report
I've been doing this for years, although in a less Pinterest-worthy form: in pyrex bowls rather than mason jars. I make a condensed version of soup, divide it into several bowls and keep in the fridge. At work, I add water and microwave - easy! I love the mason jar idea even more! Report
Thank you for this.. what great ideas - I love I can make them in advance and in some cases, just add water... awesome!!! Report
I didn't know you could even do that. I suppose the possibilities are endless. I would start with #6 since it's what I have in at the moment. Report
