We know we know, it’s not quite time to start thinking about our new years healthy eating resolutions… heck the holiday cookies and homemade goodies are just starting to get passed around! However, January is right around the corner, so bust out the juice cleanse and rice cakes right?! NO!!!! According to the Huffington Post, there are 6 food trends to look out for and believe it or not, Car’s Jars has at least one of them in every jar.
We will call these “Power Jars” for now. 🙂 “Served warm or cold, jarred meals combine all sorts of vegetables with whole grains and a protein source and instead of a creamy salad dressing full of preservatives, power jars are dressed up with a flavor-packed vinaigrette that ties it all together”
Is there a more delicious way to get your veggies than turning them into look a like pasta?! We at Car’s Jars think not! We have a couple different jars that are filled with our zoodles (zucchini noodles) and if you haven’t tried them, what are you waiting for??
“All sorts of grains with ancient pedigrees are being embraced by restaurants and are more widely available in supermarkets.” Lucky for you, quinoa is the front runner of all the ancient grains mentioned and you can find quinoa in a variety of our jars!
Pulses are part of the legume family. “Beans, peas, lentils, and chickpeas are getting new respect”. If you look at Car’s Jars menu closely, you will find all of these in one jar or another! We have the pulse for you!
“Fat may fully shred its devilish reputation in 2017. Now there’s scientific consensus that the type of fat we eat is more important than the amount.” This particular fact struck us at Car’s Jars. We get a lot of questions about calorie count in our vinaigrettes, as they seem high for some people. The answer we have for this is an easy one. “Instead of low-fat, the focus should be on healthy fats- the unsaturated kind that found in olive oil”
“The mega trend for 2017 will be the glorification of vegetables. This is not about turning vegan or demonizing meat.” This is music to our ears here at Car’s Jars!! We fill our jars with every colored vegetable in the rainbow and are so thankful that you all enjoy them as much as we enjoy making them for you. We will never stop searching out the freshest ingredients paired with delicious recipes to make a combination that sets us apart from any ordinary meal.
