Meal Prep Containers

If you are meal prepping, it’s important to have enough high quality meal prep containers to pack your food, reheat, wash and repeat.

These meal prep containers have lasted me years and are still going. They are amazing, especially for the low price.

You can throw them in the dishwasher and they microwave well. There are also bento like meal prep containers and glass meal prep containers if you prefer those.

Whatever you choose, just make sure you have enough to store a few meals and that they will fit neatly in your fridge.

    This is a great idea Jessica, now I sometimes buy ground turkey, but just like ground chuck (which has a little less fat than what they call “ground beef”) I always stick to a certain ratio (85/15 or 80/20) What type of ratio do you recommend for lean ground products that isn’t too tough (I never liked 90 for that reason).

      I always get at least 93/7 or the leanest they have. How do you cook it? That may make a difference!

        Wow that’s pretty lean! I do try to be pretty diligent about skimming off the fat 🙂
