People waste food all the time, especially when they think there’s not enough to use in a meal. However, even if you have just a bit of an ingredient left in a jar, you should be creative and use it! Not only will you be less wasteful, but it gives you the opportunity to try new ways of doing things. Plus, both of these recipes can be taken on the go!

Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is the perfect addition to overnight oats because it brings a bit of sweetness, an awesome flavor, and a ton of protein! And even if you only have a bit left in the jar, use it anyway!

Pour in 1/3-1/2 cup of rolled oats into the jar, and use that same amount of yogurt and milk and pour them in as well. Stir it and leave it in the fridge overnight. Shake before you eat it and enjoy breakfast on the go!


You might think the end of the mayo jar is useless, but it’s really gold! Use the last few smears of it to make a quick chicken salad to go.

Add in 1 cutlet of chicken, shredded, along with 2 tablespoons of mustard, 1 tablespoon of raisins, and 3 tablespoons of cubed apples. Mix everything in the jar and you have the perfect lunch!
