Taking a salad to work: Many people who like to eat healthy take a salad to work rather than bringing a sandwich. You should put your salad in a mason jar, you can put your salad and then put your dressing at the bottom,this will keep the lettuce from being soggy. Since the mason jar has a cover all you will need to do is shake the jar when you are ready to eat to enjoy you delicious dressed salad.

Adding flavour to iced tea/coffee: The worst part of drinking an iced tea or coffee is that when the ice melts, it waters down the beverage. Since the melting is inevitable, you can use it to your advantage buy crumbling cookies and put the crumbs in an ice cube tray, then cover the cookies with milk. You put this mix in a freezer, when it get blocked you put the cookie ice in your tea/coffee so when it starts to melt it will give your beverage more flavour rather than watering it down.
