Okay, y'all.  This isn't a recipe.  It's more like a really, really good idea that I just had to share.  Good thing it's my blog and I can share whatever the heck I want.  Got to love being a #girlboss!

So, here it is.  Get ready, because this is life-changing.

Did you know that a small plastic cup, you know, like the ones you get when you buy individual packages of applesauce or fruit cups, well...they fit perfectly into a 16-ounce wide mouth mason jar.

BAM!  How cool is that?!  Very cool, I tell you.

This little tidbit of information is totally awesome because

1) packing food in mason jars rules.  Glass > plastic.  That's just a fact.  As long as you're not a klutz who is going to drop the jar, that is.

2) the dip stays separate from the veggies.  You could dump some dip into the bottom of the jar and then throw the veggies on top, but you'd have to keep the jar upright so that the dip doesn't coat the veggies if it tips over.  That would just be a big mess.

Basically, this is just an uber cool way to take veggies and dip anywhere you go.  And who wouldn't want to do that?

Next time you have some of those little plastic cups, don't toss them.  Reduce, reuse, recycle, baby!
