Storing your meal prep creations!
Why is good quality meal prep storage essential?
Once you have spent precious time preparing your meals, choosing the right meal prep storage is essential. It makes the world of difference in convenience, organisation and frustration-free, on-the-go eating. Your storage containers must be:
- Made from a food-safe material: i.e. BPA-free plastic.
- Airtight: with secure lids to keep your food fresh for longer and no leakage.
- Freezer-friendly: Use containers that can go from freezer to microwave.
- Microwave safe:no microwave meltdowns.
- Portable:Glass is great until you need to take it to and from work or school. The ideal food containers are those that are light yet fit easily in a travel bag or small spaces. A lightweight and flat shape container is the meal prepper’s best friend.
- Stackable: so you don’t need to be a Tetris expert!
- Easy-to clean: Curries and tomato-based sauces can be a storage containers worst enemy, leaving behind crusty residues and stubborn stains and lingering odours. So make sure your container won’t discolour or absorb smells from your food. There is nothing worse than yoghurt with the after-taste from the contents of the previous curry meal prep.
- Dishwasher safe: if you are cooking in bulk you will be washing your containers in bulk.
- Separate compartments: so your food can be perfectly proportioned.
- Durable: to endure the wear and tear of daily use and surviving the journey you take to work.
