No usual recipe today but instead I wanted to share a recent review I did of meal prep containers. Also don’t worry since more meal prep recipes are coming
your way soon since my previous posts have been a hit. Links below are non-affiliated and 100% bias-free so just sharing in case you find the information useful too.
==What is Meal Prep?==
This is simply cooking in bulk ahead of time and freezing the homemade meals. They are super convenient for work since I can just grab one from the freezer
and run. I place this in the Hot Logic (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EC7XJ28) when get to work so never have to use a microwave. Creating your own
meals is great because it’s easy, cheaper, better quality, and you know exactly what is going in them.
Judging by the overwhelmingly positive Amazon reviews, the meal prep containers I tried out were plastic and glass.
1) Plastic – https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0128YT76S. These cost ($11 for 7 containers). While freezer safe, reusable, and microwave safe, they aren’t
all that sturdy especially after one use. I don’t see these lasting more than a few uses judging by the quality.
2) Glass – 2-compartment(5 cups) – https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L9Z57L6 and 1-compartment(3.5 cups) – https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0175EUOL8 at
$30 for 3 and $22 for 3 respectively. These are hands down outstanding quality. The only drawback I could possibly give them is they are a little heavier than the plastic kind. Other than that though, they seem well worth the investment to get the glass containers instead. Also I prefer the larger size because although .5 cups doesn’t sound like much, there is a noticeable difference in how much food can fit while both take up about the same space.
Final Verdict: Glass containers by MealPrep
I got the inspiration for these meal prep adventures from the non-profit meal prep frozen meals at PlantPure https://www.plantpurenation.com/collections/foods but wanted to make my own to customize them even more. Don’t be surprised if you see some similar recipes on future posts.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, just let me know.
