It's really cool that your gf wants to start meal prepping, she definitely should give it a try! :)

​

Bear with me in case this turns into a 'novel'...

​

The first and maybe best piece of advice I can give is to take the whole mystique out of it. Meal prepping really is not some mysterious, ritualized, uncharted intimidating endeavor that you need to meticulously set up for. There's honestly not much more to it than cooking foods that you (1)enjoy and (2)will keep well for a few days in the fridge and/or freezer. As much as people hate to hear it, and there honestly is a debate over this, meal prepping can really be thought of as glorified leftovers. You cook a meal and eat it later on. To some people that qualifies as leftovers. To others, you might as well have cursed their sweet granny to burning hell for even daring to say that. Semantics.

​

You'll want to first decide your purpose for meal prepping.

  • Do you want to save money?
  • Do you want to eat healthier in general? Or do you have specific health needs or goals like counting macros or reducing sodium intake, etc.?
  • Do you want to merely save time and not have to think about what you'll be eating every day?
  • Do you want to just experiment and try new dishes you otherwise wouldn't have been interested in before?

    ​

    Get an idea of the purpose of your meal prepping. Then you'll get into equipment.

  • Plastic containers such as the ones pinned to the top of this subreddit are great if you want more containers and want to spend less. They're more lightweight than glass, and most of them are microwaveable. You'll want BPA free. Some may not last as long, and some don't hold up over multiple washings very well. But the better ones are good for pretty much anything you want to make. It sort of depends on if you have issues with plastics or not.
  • Glass (my own preference) is heavier and more pricey for the the number of containers you'll get in a set, but the better ones, such as these, can go in the microwave and in the oven, are dishwasher safe, freezer safe, and durable. They'll usually come with either 0, 1, or 2 dividers (making them 1 big compartment, 2 compartments, or 3) and, like the plastic ones, have snap-on lids. It's a personal preference, really.
  • There are rectangular, square and even round containers that will be available. It all depends on the meals you'll be making most often - baked chicken, wild rice and asparagus would suit well in a 2 or 3 compartment container. A teriyaki stir fry would work in anything, and even a round container, making it basically a teriyaki bowl.
  • You might want to get small plastic ramekins with leak-proof lids to hold condiments like sauces and dressings IF you think you'll be using them. It isn't a must-have, but can be a nice addition. Also smaller bowls to hold fresh fruit or nuts as a side dish come in pretty handy, but again, not totally necessary.
  • Amazon has a treasure-trove of good containers, and probably other places like the Container Store.
  • You'll amass containers as time goes on, and as you start to realize exactly what you needs are. Start with a few basics to get going.

    ​

    Yummy, now the food part:

    As far as meal prep recipes, your limit is Google. Literally Google and Pinterest and anywhere else you can find a recipe, so basically the sky is the limit. Many dishes can be made into a meal prep - the recipe does not have to be "meal prep specific". Spaghetti and meat sauce can be a meal prep (my husband had that last week). Casseroles, meat dishes, slow cooker meals like stroganoff or pot roast, pasta dishes, Asian food dishes, fish...too many to name, as long as it will keep well for a few days and reheat well. Again, your purpose for meal prepping comes into play big time here:

  • If you're prepping solely for budget purposes, then a blackened miso cod dish with truffles isn't gonna cut it. You'll want to look for good sales on ingredients at the store, search online for delicious meals you can make on a budget, etc. Many 'mom' blogs are excellent sources for this as they'll show how to make great dishes to feed a large family (for meal prepping, the "large family" is you, but over the course of a few days!). Many time-saving meal preps will be found within budget-friendly recipe sources as well.
  • For healthy prepping, look for substitutes of familiar favorites. Spaghetti squash and zucchini can be shred into noodles that beautifully mimic pasta noodles, cutting a significant amount of carbs. Turkey sausage or meatless options can sub for pork. Big portobello mushrooms can make excellent substitutes for ground meat patties in a meatless burger. Learn which veggies are sources of which vitamins and minerals you want to add to your diet. There are more health-conscious meal and recipe sites than there are grains of sand on Earth, so it should be super easy to find what you're looking for. If you're into macros, again, many many sources for that information to get you started.
  • If health and budget don't concern you as much, and your cooking options are pretty broad, then you have literally A TON of recipe options. As with any other recipes for meal prep, what you want are foods that you'll enjoy. The more you like the food, the less you'll mind eating it for 3, 4, 5 days, and you'll look more forward to actually cooking the food and discovering new dishes and techniques. Make it fun. Restaurant and fast food copycat recipes can be excellent for this IF the dishes hold up well to being refrigerated or frozen for several days. You can search online for advice on certain foods, but a lot of it is trial and error, honestly. Carino's restaurant has this Garlic Jalapeno Tilapia dish that I absolutely adore, but how often do we actually ever go there to eat it? Occasionally in the distant past, never now. So several years ago I found a perfect -- I mean PERFECT copycat recipe. Better than the original. I decided a few months ago to give it a shot for meal prep. Hah. It wasn't terrible, the taste was still really good, but the reheating wasn't problem free, and it wasn't great after 4 days. Would I do it again? Yes, but ONLY as a 2-day meal prep. Trial and error.
  • Don't depend solely on r/MealPrepSunday for recipe inspiration. I cannot stress this enough. There is a WORLD of fantastic food ideas out there, and it honestly doesn't take that much searching. There are many cookbooks as well, and the more you search, the more you'll find exciting new possibilities. Try to have some ideas in mind as to what you want to eat, and then find it.

Cheap tips...

Rice Cooker, Slow cooker, Food Processor, Blender.

Zojirushi Rice Cookers are consistent and long lasting - I had one of these for 12 years, and it always got the job done right. When I moved in with my wife, she had a rice cooker that was old, but still worked (another Zojirushi). We recently splurged and got a really high end one. It's AMAZING, 10-15 minute perfectly cooked rice.

Cuckoo CRP-HV0667F IH Pressure Rice Cooker - For reference.

Anyways...

Get the simplest cheapest crock-pot - Less things to go wrong when it's as simple as this.

Get a cheap food processor

Get a decent blender - Don't go too cheap on blenders, you really get what you pay for in a quality blender. Blenders and mixers are the two things KitchenAid does best.

Now... The reason why I said get cheap stuff? Because you said you know nothing about cooking, and you might destroy a nice piece of equipment in your ignorance. It's bound to happen. Since you are going to be living on your own, if family gives you free stuff, don't feel bad about getting rid of it if the equipment sucks. They didn't want it anyways. Good tools? And you'll do a good job.

Watch this for other equipment...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-av6cz9upO0 - Gordon Ramsay may be a celebrity, but his kitchen knowledge is definitely high-end.

Personally don't skimp on the saucepans, frying pan, and the knife (honestly for 99% of jobs you just want a really good chef's knife, other than a pairing knife can do most everything). They will make your life easier if you have quality equipment. I disagree with him about the cutting board for 2 reasons (10 years in restaurants in the past here)... One, you are a beginner and might ruin a wood board. Two, wood boards can accumulate bacteria from meats if not taken care of properly. I advise this one...

OXO Grips Utility Cutting Board

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHRXUeVsAQQ - Great video showing you some good techniques in cooking.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJy1ajvMU1k - Another video along the same vein, great techniques for cooking.

As others have said Budgetbytes is great.

Raw beans and raw rice are always going to be significantly cheaper than buying pre-made/pre-cooked. Use a slow cooker to cook beans overnight. Use google for a recipe.

Chicken skin-on, bone-in is always going to be significantly cheaper than not. Breast is usually drier/tougher but lower calorie per oz. Thighs are juicier/softer, but higher calorie per oz. Remove the skin if you want to be more calorie efficient. Keep the skin on for flavor. Personally? I always leave skin on, remove the bone (but use it for cooking to extract the flavors), and I always use a chicken thigh. Personal preference. A cool tip is to remove the skin, coat in olive oil, and fry by itself. Try that out, see if you like it. Fry till like crispy bacon. If you don't use the skin in cooking, you can use it like this as a snack later.

Seasoning things is really important. Don't over-season, less is more. Because you can always add more seasoning later. When I make chicken, I always put a pinch of salt on each side, grind some pepper (use a pepper grinder, it's always superior to that pre-ground pepper crap), slap that into it. Olive oil, don't skimp out on this either. Get stuff actually from Italy, larger bottles are usually a better deal. Chicken with salt, pepper, olive oil is simple and tasty.

Get some kinda meal prep containers...

https://www.amazon.com/Freshware-15-Pack-Compartment-Bento-Lunch/dp/B01IIINCRS - These should work great. I like having a separation point in the container.

Some simple recipes I like...

http://luckypeach.com/recipes/miso-claypot-chicken-no-claypot/

https://www.budgetbytes.com/?s=slow+cooker - Anything here.

https://www.budgetbytes.com/?s=easy - Again, using the search function at budgetbytes is huge.

One thing that helps is to develop your palate. If you will be doing okay for money, the occasional outing to a restaurant to try something new can be really beneficial. When you eat food out, imagine what possible technique they could have used to achieve a certain texture or taste.

I'm just rambling, but hopefully this will help a little.

u/Reiterated · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Hey there! I've been meal prepping for quite a while, and this sub has been great for helping me get ideas. I can't take all the credit for any of these recipes, but I did make them into things that I like. I do freeze the food in the black containers, and take one out and thaw in the fridge the day prior. This prep was for 10 total chicken thighs, cauliflower mash for 10 containers, and then mixed vegetables. The salads I keep in the fridge. Containers are the Fit Packer containers, which I purchased from Amazon. I am actively trying to lose weight (12 pounds gone!) and meal prepping has really helped me stick with my goals. Because of this, I included the calorie information from MFP for those of you who would like that.


Roasted Chicken

10 5oz(ish) chicken thighs (these have bones/skin)

Rosemary (like 4-5 sprigs)

Lemon Juice (about a quarter cup)



Preheat your oven to 400 Fahrenheit and take your chicken out of the package.

In a large bowl, put a quarter of the lemon juice at the bottom with one sprig of rosemary

Layer in your chicken thighs, making sure each has some lemon juice, and rosemary sprigs.

Allow to marinate for about 20 minutes, or until the oven is preheated (You can also marinate overnight, the lemon is VERY strong when you do this though.)

Bake for 45-60 minutes depending on your oven (Side note for this, I like to use those aluminum disposable pans for this from the dollar store. They're $1 for two and the acidity of the lemon killed my metal pan...)

Let cool for about 10 minutes before putting into meal prep containers.


Cauliflower Mash
I got this recipe from food.com, and followed it pretty much exactly. I doubled it, then divided it by 10 so each container has about 100 grams of the mash. (MFP says that each serving is 110-ish calories for 8 servings. I kept this calorie count even though I divided it by 10 to account for any mistakes in counting.)


Vegetables
I do buy frozen, steam-in-bag veggies. These are super cheap and easy to prep, and I haven't had any issues with cooking them and then re-freezing them and having them be mushy or gross at all.

    Mason Jar Salads
    This is not my idea at all, and you can totally put whatever veggies you want in this. The idea here is to layer your dressing, then hearty veggies, then less hearty veggies, then lettuce at the top. This particular week I didn't do dressing at the bottom (I like to choose my dressing in the morning before work) Here's what I did!

  • Tomatos (Sunbursts) - 148g

  • Mushrooms (sliced) - 60g

  • Chick Peas - 85g

  • Lettuce - fill the rest of the jar (it's about 85g)

    Snacks

    In the pictures I have some veggies and hummus. My trick with these is to cut them up and pre package them, just like with the food. Each plastic bag is about 1/2 a red pepper, and I write the total in grams on the bag to make it easy to track. They range from 85-100g per bag. The celery ends up being pretty consistent at 115-120. The hummus I do pre-portion, and that is exactly 28g, or one serving at 60 calories.

    I didn't picture it here, but I also do this with snacks I buy (veggie sticks, mini rice cakes, etc). I find it easy to grab things in the morning this way when everything is prepackaged, but then I don't have to pay for individual packages at the grocery store.

    All in all, this is a fair amount of work (probably 2 hours.) I do this about once every other week. For breakfasts I either do plain rice cakes with peanut butter, or cereal depending on my work schedule. Dinner I usually leave open, but I keep large quantities of salmon and meatballs in the freezer to make easy meals.

    If you have any questions, let me know!
u/woofie11 · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I've used glass containers for microwaving eggs, but never for meal prep. The only thing that is holding me back is the weight, storage, and price. I need about 10 containers, so that will set me back around $100 or so. Glass is awesome though, super easy to clean. I just need something around 28 ounces to hold meals, that's it.

These look nice. Kind of spendy, though. I use this brand's plastic containers and they work nice. I bet that these are a great choice for a meal prep container.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0175EUOL8/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_NjvnxbKVETKRQ

These look sort of promising, cost-wise at least. I just wonder how good the seal is. According to Amazon reviews, it's not the best.

u/MotherofSalsa · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Do not buy these containers. They're fine for a few weeks and washings but they crack and shatter super easily. I'll never buy them again.

I also own these and these hard ones. The single compartment ones I've ordered over and over (they're plastic, they start to show wear and tear and break down after a while. Also I just like fresh containers lol. I buy new ones evey 3 months or so) because they're so great. Never had one break on me and they're a great size. The hard plastic ones are also amazing. The Plastic is thick and not flimsy at all. They're smaller but I've had no problems with them either.

I just bought a Jaxx FitPack luchbox yesterday on Amazon. It comes with it's own containers and ice pack. A coworker has one and I've messed around with her containers to see what they're like and they seem pretty sturdy too IMO. It'll be here tomorrow so if you're interested I can update you on them when I actually have them in my hands.

u/inkyysquid · 135 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Total cost was almost exactly 100 dollars, so 25 per person - that includes the lunches here as well as enough leftovers for everyone's dinners and snacks - this week we filled half cup containers with grapes, chopped carrots, chopped celery, and also got some pita for extra hummus from the wraps, chips and salsa, and like 20 cups of yogurt!! We also got a few apples and bananas to eat for breakfast.

From left to right:

  • Paninis with teriyaki sweet potatoes

  • Pasta w/ lemon, herbs, and shaved Parmesan and green beans

  • Wrap bowls (these can be constructed into wrap form in advance but we always make them the morning of w/ some red pepper hummus, it's super good) with strawberries

  • Taco bowls (same idea as the wraps but with salsa instead of hummus) with roasted corn

  • "Take-out" style noodles w/ chicken with cucumber salad with ginger/garlic/soy sauce

    A quick note that applies to both pasta recipes is double the sauce! For the take-out noodles we took only four servings (like half) of the cooked pasta and mixed it with the doubled sauce and it was still only just enough.

    One of our roommates is a vegetarian, so we try to make meat and vegetarian protein options for all the dishes - this made great vegetarian meatballs but you can also just cook the mix and throw it into wraps/onto sandwiches or salads. We also have tofu "chorizo" as the alternative for the taco bowls.

    Edit:
    These are our containers! They're microwave and dishwasher safe, but not totally leakproof (they're fine for brothy/saucey stuff but I wouldn't put soup in them).

    We use a mix of these and a cheap bulk pack we got at Fiesta for leftovers. The rubbermaids are expensive but they don't stain and are actually leakproof which is nice!! We also have three of those lunchblox sandwich kits and we use the half cup containers that come with those to portion out snacks in advance (fruits and cut veggies mostly).
u/xoPurple · 4 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I live in Canada, and personally found it difficult to find decent containers (still on the hunt) that are not overly expensive since I need to buy at least 10.

I currently use a mix of these plastic containers which probably wont last as long as the glass containers from ikea. They seem like they are good enough thus far lasting through microwaves and dishwashers. IMO, they are a pretty decent size - at least for my needs... for my basic meal prep it fit 1 cup cooked rice, 112g of chicken breast and a bunch of broccoli.

If I was American I'd probably go for these containers

I'm not a pro at this as I just started MPS recently, but I've learned it's best to get containers that are freezer/microwave/dishwasher safe, BPA free. Hopefully others can chime in with their experience!

Finally, I get my inspo from:

u/gatorade2008 · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Very true, I'm going to link some of my equipment that I love feel free to ask questions. The pre cut bags are amazing because my portion size is consistent due to the constant container size that is/was the real game changer

I literally spent 20 hours finding the right containers, lunchbox, etc. for meal prepping. I decided these ones were the best: Komax Biokips Food Storage Lunch Boxes Set of 3, Divided Plastic Container with 3 Removable Compartments, Leak Proof, - Airtight Locking Lids
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MWBJRUO/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apap_OLtpViv5aW1LB

They are stackable and sturdy. What I love the most is that the compartments are removable, so if you have fruit or something that you don't want to microwave, but you don't want to have to eat that item first, no problem! They are definitely leak proof; I lived out of an ice chest in a hotel for a week and the meals at the bottom were in water for a day or 2 and still perfectly good. The individual compartments aren't leak proof, but the containers fit perfectly in my lunch box so I don't have to worry about that.

u/calamazoowho · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Yes they are reusable! I find sticking them in the dishwasher after use works best to clean them. Amazon has lots of options.

Been meal prepping and lurking here for a while! My employer provides free breakfast Mondays and free lunch Fridays, so here's a week's worth of work containers for me:


Breakfast: Chickpea and avocado smash (work provides free bread for toasting), idea from /r/GifRecipes


Lunch: Whole-wheat spaghetti, pasta sauce, Tofurkey veggie kielbasa, sauteed herbed garlicky chickpeas. Also got the idea for the chickpeas from /r/GifRecipes
(470 calories, 15 g fat, 63 g carbs, 29 g protein. I should be watching my carbs, but I love them)


Snack: 1 lb strawberries

I got the large containers from Amazon and the smaller ones from a Korean grocery store! They're great for little snacks and sides.

u/mcyaco · 8 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

The pyrex snapware are nice, they are something like this I believe.

I have the Pyrex no leak, the lids take some getting used to. However the nice thing is you can buy the lids separate, since they are far more likely to break before the glass does. I am not sure if you can buy just the lids for other brands.

Ikea has some pretty good glass Tupperware as well, a lot like what I linked earlier. They're sold individually, so you can get just as many as you need. I have a couple of these. I have also seen pretty good deals on glass tupperware at Marshall's.

u/chemkara · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

It took less than 40 minutes to prep.

Lunch:

  • Cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives and Cornichons.

  • Vegetable Samosas bought from the frozen section in an Indian store (I love finding delicious food that makes it easy for me).

  • Energy balls : I eyeball everything, I don’t have precise measurements but this is a very forgiving recipe and you can customize it to your liking. The base is softened dates in water, then much them with fork or hands, I just use my hands. Add nuts (I used walnuts here), blended Chia seeds and Flax seeds, toasted old fashioned oats ( I toast them in a pan over low heat ), shredded coconuts and 1 big spoonful of peanut butter. Mix well and make little balls ( I used an ice cream scooper ).

  • mini sweet peppers stuffed with brie, put in toaster oven for 10 to 15 minutes, then I sprinkled them with Trader Joe’s Everything but the bagel seasoning.

  • Crackers: I get these from my Local Mexican Restaurant when I buy Ceviche.

    Dinner:

  • Mason Jar Salad: I just use whatever I have in the fridge and stack them up.
    Tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, pears, purple potatoes and Romaine lettuce.

  • Simple vinaigrette in the small containers.

    I will pair this with Pan cooked Salmon ( not shown ).

    Containers:

  • Mason jars wide mouth 16oz. I bought mine from the dollar store.

  • U Konserve Divided To-Go containers: These are expensive but I bought mine at a discount store and I like how they are not too heavy like the glass containers.
    https://www.amazon.com/Konserve-Divided-Go-Medium-Ocean/dp/B01A0EHXLE?th=1&psc=1

  • Sistema To Go Salad Dressing Containers:

    I bought mine from TJMaxx for $1.99.




u/kikocat · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I got these . It’s only my first time using them, but so far it seems like they seal pretty well and they have a lot of good reviews so I’m hoping they’ll transport well!

u/manette_spam · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Glass glass glass! They don't spill and don't end up staining, getting stinky, and therefore can be used for years if treated well. Also, with their plastic lids removed, they are completely safe for reheating in the microwave. Depending on your needs, amazon has loads of options, but a rectangular container that holds about 28oz is a good start; MealPrep makes some solid ones that aren't too pricy on Amazon. I've found that, while having multiple different sizes can be nice, I keep going back to these: mealprep

Edit: Cons are that they're heavy, can break if you're determined enough, and the latches on the lids may break.

u/omnigasm · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Sure thing! I love these and since my go-to dishes don't usually need to he divided it's perfect for me. I lost a bunch of lids in a move and asked the seller if they could sell me just the lids. They said they couldn't, so instead they sent me an entire new set for free! So highly recommend that type of customer service!

u/bansheeofbedlam · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Those baggies will get expensive! If you want to do this for the long run, invest in some glass tupperware from Amazon. I've been really happy with these, but they also make one with more compartments. Mine don't collect smells and they've carried some pretty stinky stuff.

Also might want to pack the tzatziki separately. Not sure if it will make your salad soggy. Great start though! Hope it works out for you.

u/aManPerson · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

glass lock is a great brand

https://www.amazon.com/Glasslock-18-Piece-Assorted-Oven-Container/dp/B00LN810PM

you can take the rubber liner/seal out and clean it pretty easy. just not very cheap. otherwise i like mason jars for taller sealing things.

u/meandrunkR2D2 · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Yes they are and the link is below.
I do believe that a person could find similar or better ones for much less through a restaurant supply store as they seem to be fairly similar to the take home boxes. But these are a good quality and clean very well and have held up to my meals and reheating the past month.

Healthy Meal Prep Containers - Certified BPA-free - Reusable, Washable, Microwavable Food Containers with Lids (7 Pack, 28 Ounce) with Meal Prepping Ebook https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0128YT76S/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_ZNh-wbS075ZAP

u/where_are_your_shoes · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Here's an amazon link to a 7 pack with lots of good reviews! Not sure if this is what you're looking for exactly, but one compartment should be good for salads. It claims to be microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe, though I haven't got them yet to try out myself. Hope this helps! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0128YT76S/ref=pd_aw_sim_79_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=C26S74AKJ794WXW5D0V2

u/justasque · 63 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Keeping wet things separate from dry things helps. I have a variety of small Sistema containers; I would probably simply put each item into a different container. They also make a nice container with a compartment at one end for, say, hummus, and a long section for, say, carrots or sliced peppers to dip into the hummus.

This one, the Snack Attack Duo, is nice - there's space for a couple of different kinds of things.

I have this one ("Salad To Go") for salads - I am amazed at how long the salads remain fresh in it.

This is a smaller one, with two sections.

I use the Dressing Containers for salad dressing; they also make several larger sizes that would work for small amounts of fruit or nuts.

The Triple Split has more room for larger amounts, and comes with a container which can be used for yogurt, hummus, cottage cheese, or fruit like watermelon.

The Sistema stuff is well-made. I put mine in the dishwasher with care, and it has held up very well. I've had no problem with leakage, and food seems to last longer in the Sistema than in other containers. (I have no stake in the company; I just love the products!)

u/Primathon · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

What do I call it? I dunno :) good luck in the kitchen, though.

The containers are 28oz, they're made by a company called Fitpacker, and they're only ~$20 for 16 of em. They make all sorts of sizes. Check it out.

Is it a lot of food for a meal? Yes. Eating one of these in a single sitting will definitely leave you full. But that's by intention...

u/UrBroFromAnodaHoe · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I use these and they work perfectly, haven't had any issues what so ever I do hand wash them rather than toss them in the dishwasher I'm sure they'd be fine but better to be safe than sorry.

u/Mthecrouton · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

5-6 meals is a whole lot. What I might do is pick a protein like chicken and vary the spices to make different kinds of chicken. Like maybe greek chicken then chicken fajitas, then chicken marinated in hot wing sauce, chicken in a mustard marinade. That to me might be easier then mixing up proteins. Thats me however. You might also try cooking a few nights a week different dishes and make a lot then freeze left overs. I've done that before, that gives me some variety for dinner and lunch without doing all the cooking in one day. Its failed me before though because I'll get home and be like nah I don't feel like cooking then eating all my lunch leftovers for dinner. As for the veggies, they make different frozen mixes so that would be easy to mix up. Green beans, or broccoli and cauliflower, or just broccoli, squash and zucchini. Me personally I don't add extra carbs like rice unless it goes with meal because honestly I don't like rice that much. l find I can hit my carb content with fruits and vegetables alone and maybe some oatmeal. Unless rice goes with the dish then I'll eat it. But it would be easy enough to cook a bunch of rice and divvy it up. You might also try a crock pot to make one type of meal in it while you make others on the stove. I think your over reaching with 5-6, I'd try 3. If you alternate them its really not bad.

As for how long they last frozen, a long time. In the fridge, a few days. Containers, take your pick, some people like these: https://www.amazon.com/Freshware-15-Pack-Compartment-Bento-Lunch/dp/B01IIINCRS/ref=sr_1_7?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1482244086&sr=1-7&keywords=meal+prep+containers

my brother uses the rubbermaid containers with the heavy duty plastic, I like to use pyrex rectangle glass ones because I think they are easier to clean but thats me and Pyrex is way more expensive.

u/WeAreTheMassacre · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Pretty sure its Prep Naturals.

https://www.amazon.com/5-Pack-29oz-Glass-Prep-Containers/dp/B06Y31WGWR/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?keywords=prep+naturals&qid=1556643777&s=gateway&sr=8-4

They dont stack with the lids off really, and if they do it's so minimal that I wouldnt feel secure with them since its heavy glass. With the lids on they stack okay, but definitely not "nesting" like you see from nearly every big brand of Tupperware. I have the one compartment and two compartment versions, and they're great if you have the space. I've never really seen nesting versions.

u/PM_ME_BrusselSprouts · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

All I can say is I bought these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BYA4H1W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

(32 Oz. 2 Compartment Meal Prep Containers Durable BPA Free Plastic Reusable Food Storage Container Microwave & Dishwasher Safe w/ Airtight Lid For Portion Control & Bento Box Lunch Box)

I have been using them successfully and they are pretty good, but they are not leak-proof. Even brand new they weren't so "airtight" that dressing didn't leak out of them if they were accidentally turned on their side. I portion my dressing into once cups but a few times something like Thai sauce has leaked through onto my paper lunch bag. So I would be weary of that.

Also the compartment isn't quite big enough. I like it for chicken/rice since I don't eat a lot of that, but for something like a sandwich with normal bread or pizza (I meal prep for BF who eats a lot more than me) it's juuuuuuuust too small. I kind of wish we would have gotten one without a divider. But I know some people wouldn't have a problem, and the divider does come in handy when I want to separate a small side from a small meal. Just my 2 cents.

If we had more space I would get a set of ten non-compartmentalized containers for occasionally having bigger servings.

Overall I would give them a 4/5 stars.

u/Quesa-dilla · 5 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

If your just doing sandwiches then I'd head over to a Target/KMart/Walmart store and pick up a few containers that will fit your sandwich, like this example. Mostly because sandwiches don't really stand up well to being prepped multiple days in advance. So you're really just looking for something to ensure it doesn't get smushed.

If you're looking for a step up, you might try something like this or a compartment style like this.

If you really get into it, I'd maybe go buy some higher quality Tupperware designed for freezer->fridge->microwave or even freezer->microwave, that's all dishwasher safe.

u/davedawg2000 · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Yep! Microwave all the way.

I get mine from Amazon -- in addition to being microwave-safe, they are also dishwasher safe, very durable, and delightfully stackable :)

u/MacBreeeezy · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Yep! Got them off of amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0768T7CWC/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_8qfQBb1X7XTFF

They’re spendy but worth it. I never had too many problems with plastic ones but these are more robust and easier to clean.

u/Syuk_Dat_Deke · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I don't take my meals outside of the house either, but I think it's worth it for a few reasons.

You cook once instead of multiple times a day, and you know the calories for that meal.

I have my whole meal in one container. Next week I think I'm going to make burrito bowls so I'll put lettuce and tomatoes in a baggie to mix in after it's heated.

I'd say either a combo of both or go with the non compartment ones. I bought these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0128YT76S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_ECY59RPjUcuyH and they're pretty good.

u/perfectpencil · 6 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I know this sub gushes over the cheap-o plastic ones, but I recently switched to the glass kind and OH MY GOD it is heavenly. Its the cadillac of meal prep. Once you go glass you never go back.

I have two different kinds by the same manufacturer. The other one I purchased has two compartments instead of three. When I received them one of the 20 boxes was broken beyond use, and Amazon was super quick in refunding me like 15% of my purchase (was around 3 dollars if I remember right, I did buy them on sale on cyber monday). They have held up very well for me and there is more than enough boxes (I am prepping for two). Had them over a month now and use them everyday. They do just fine in the microwave and have had no breakage past the shipping damage I had mentioned. Bonus: they are on sale right now!

Also, I do not own a dishwasher so I hand wash everything. I can't comment on how they hold up against a dishwasher.

Edit: typo and wanted to add that I do not ever microwave the lids, just the actual containers.

u/zelmarvalarion · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Myself and a couple other people use the 750ml glass rectangular Pyrex containers. I think I got mine for $2 each from Marshall's, which is good for glass containers.

I think the Lift containers (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0128YT76S) are pretty popular, and I think I've heard that Costco has them even cheaper than Amazon if you have a membership (I haven't checked myself though)

u/nodig · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

So I can't speak for everyone but the ones I use are these and these from Amazon. They are microwavable, freezable and dishwasher top rack safe. The only issues I've had with these particular ones is the lids are so hard to get off that I've had a couple where the corners cracked but that's after 6 or so months of use. But look around on amazon, there are ton of different brands and sizes and shapes.

u/blackkittenpresident · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

As someone who does prep for a family of 4 every week I have been using containers like these for years. They're great in the dishwasher and far less expensive then glass. I feel safe with them, and I always have enough.

u/pggu1123 · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I bought them off of Amazon here This particular one is currently unavailable, but there are plenty of alternatives. I've been using them for 9 months now, pretty religiously and are starting to chip a bit on the edges. If these keep deteriorating, I'll be in the market for something nicer.

u/snap_hat · 8 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Here. Highly recommend them, they freeze well and are great if you just want to microwave one thing, or heat for different amounts of time.

u/zxcv437 · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

beginner I like these because they were relatively cheap, have had no issues hand washing them, and they were delivered to my house.

I've seen someone talk about how he was doing this for a while and got tired of $20 every other month or so, so he went and bought something like this and now doesn't worry when one warps or breaks he can just toss it and he's out a buck.

I'm not a guy who goes for the separated boxes, idk, when you eat on a plate it's all together, I just plan my meals the same way. Also invest in some good ziplock baggies, things like celery, jerky and sandwiches I don't like free floating in the container and it's easier to grab a bag or two when I'm running out the door.

I got some Glasslock containers similar to these and I really like them because they make it really easy to take out the sealing tube... gasket? That way they're easy to wash and I don't have to worry about getting remnants stuck under it. Plus the lids never come off unless I want them to.

u/lo_pope · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Agreed! I ordered these in the photo (10-pack) and a few even got holes from hot food. They definitely leak so keep flat when transporting.

I just donated my remaining plastic ones locally and purchased these as replacements. I prefer the glass for a number of reasons and I prefer the smaller size/2-compartment better than the larger ones. Makes the meal feel bigger :)

They seal amazingly well. I put water in one and tried to get it to leak out but it stayed inside the container. I will be using them this week for the first time. They are taller when filled than my Walmart ones so I can't stack as many in the fridge but they seem like better boxes. It was supposed to be 20 boxes but there were only 19 in my shipment.

Spinach salads with bell pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, craisins, walnuts, and blue cheese crumble. Raspberry walnut vinaigrette dressing is my preference.

Quinoa salad with chickpeas, cucumber, bell pepper, red onion, chopped parsley. Dressing is basically just fresh squeezed lemon juice and garlic.

Mandarin chicken pasta salad = farfalle, chicken, spinach, mandarin oranges, red bell pepper, sun dried tomatoes, shaved carrots, sliced almonds, and chopped green beans. I use ken’s sesame ginger dressing for this one.

These! I really love them. This photo is actually about 3 weeks old so I’ve used them for 2 meal prep weeks and I’m super satisfied. Personally I don’t microwave them with the lid on (unclipped but on at an angle for moisture retention) because it mildly warped one when I took it out of the microwave. However two weeks in and I have no idea which one it was so it didn’t permanently impact it. Highly recommend.

I like these ones. I use them got salad dressing, veggie dips, etc. They never leak, and fit nicely in other containers. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00BG4DH90?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_image

I believe the link was to those boxes, but I ended up getting these, looking at the review pictures they do not ahve a logo on the lid :)

Edit: these aren't exactly the same, but they're pretty darn close and rated highly

u/jgardner04 · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

There are all kinds of things out there. I have something similar to these on Amazon but my wife and I picked them up from Costco for pretty cheap. They are reusable and we have washed them in dishwasher quite a bit.

I think I might have the same ones? I love them

Thanks! I think someone actually shared the link on here awhile back, but they're from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B075BP5JN3?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_pd_title

u/growing · 6 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

These are the ones I picked up. I purchased two sets and have been very happy with them.

u/s_valle52 · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I have these for my boyfriend, I have a smaller set for me. The top is plastic but the container is glass
Hopefully this helps.

u/WorseBlitzNA · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Thanks! I got my containers off Amazon, i prefer glass over plastic because i rather not heat plastic in the microwave.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075BP5JN3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I ordered ten 29oz containers, after tax, it averages to $6 per container, which i think is reasonable priced for glass.

u/Genesis2001 · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Curious. Is this assessment limited to only the containers linked in OP?

I've had my eye on these for a couple months now but haven't had the money due to YNAB budgeting (money went more to savings than expendable money).

edit: If either OP or the ones I linked are bad, can you recommend alternatives? :)

u/DudeOnACouch2 · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I'm still new to meal prep, but this is what I'm using. 16 of them for $14.

If you click around, you should be able to find ones with partitions, like these.

u/SirDubbington · 5 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I picked up a pack of 15 containers with lids for less than 20$ on Amazon prime now. Microwaveable and dishwasher safe. I’ll post a link if I can find it again.

Here they are

u/Angry_Farmer · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

This is the exact one I ordered on Amazon and with prime they came in just 2 days: https://www.amazon.com/Enther-Compartment-Containers-Stackable-Dishwasher/dp/B072B9F7W4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1503002224&sr=8-2&keywords=enther+bento+box

u/Falschnachricht · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

"Is it worth it?" is always such a personal question, so I'm sorry if my answer isn't as decisive as you're looking for. I'll try to tailor my response to your budget concern.

Short answer: plastic containers will get the job done cheaper than glass in the short-term.

Your first purchase of plastic containers will be available for much cheaper than glass (e.g. [$11 for 7 containers] (https://www.amazon.com/Evolutionize-Healthy-Meal-Prep-Containers/dp/B0128YT76S) vs $5/pc for glass. You'll also be able to get much more variety and specialization for your dollar in plastic containers: rectangular, round, multi-compartment, etc. That means you'll have more options when planning your food, which should help vary your diet while still eating cheap.

You get what you pay for, however, and this is where the debate of plastic vs glass really turns into an investment in my opinion. Plastic will eventually scratch, retain odors, stain, warp, leak, and some people still have concerns about negative health impacts from ingesting plastics. Anecdotally, most people I know cycle through their plastic containers every six months

So now for your second purchase of meal prep containers, you'll either spend another $11 on plastic containers, or you'll look at glass. It's heavier, when it breaks it shatters, and it's much more expensive per piece. BUT, take care of it and it'll last much longer. The grommet will seal much better than plastic containers. You're no longer limited to cold foods and microwave heating because they're also oven-safe. I now use the IKEA glassware linked above and the glass doesn't have any indications of damage. The lid may wear out over time, but two years in mine are still going strong!

Call it $20 on plastic containers every year, or $30 up front that may need lid replacements every few years - your budget should make this decision for you.

I got these for Christmas, and they are amazing. Very heavy duty think Pyrex but thicker. They come in different types I got some dinner one container, some that are split into two, and some that are split into three compartments.

u/nexusxis · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I have these containers but they only have the middle divider. I'm also interested in where OP found glass containers with 3 compartments.

u/hosway · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

A company called ChefLand. I saw someone on Reddit recommend them and purchased them off of amazon. They're pretty inexpensive and get the job done. They're a bit on the flimsy side, but I have reused them several times already with minimum problems. Here is the link.

u/notthekyrieirving · 9 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

The black containers are from Amazon: Enther Meal Prep Containers... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0742M47V5?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

The red ones are Mama Fu’s take-out containers lol

u/GetThere1Time · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CYXUGOA

I got these, and they definitely do the trick, but there are countless similar products available, depending on the quantity and compartments you're looking for. I bike to work so I wrap two elastic bands around before putting it in my bag which works well, nothing here has much liquid though.

u/pksullivan · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

No problem! Got them on Amazon. A set of 10 is pretty cheap; I'm going to hope to get a year's worth of lunches out of them before I recycle and get a new set.

u/Bford11 · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I just searched glass divided containers on Amazon. The specific ones are linked.

3 compartment: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0777JD5DD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_LRMpDbDCKG7M4

2 compartment: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075BP5JN3?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

Edit to add: I’ve had them for a few months and they’ve held up very well!

u/RosesSpins · 10 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Is that salad pre-dressed? Might want to invest in some small containers like this for dressing and sauces otherwise your salads are going to be inedible.
These are reusable and these are disposable.

I got them from amazon. They have decent sales on those, and the single compartment ones pretty regularly.

u/craychel · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Sometimes the containers will tell you how much each compartment holds. Like these from Amazon, the larger compartment holds 16 oz and the smaller compartment holds 9 oz.

These are the ones I got and if I can say, I am quite pleased with them. They don’t seem to stain and are odor resistant.

u/guardianfx · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I picked them up from Amazon. I also ordered myself a new Lunchbox to go with them. It has made this week really easy.

u/selflessGene · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday


Highly recommend people using plastic containers switch to glass for your health. Heated plastic releases potentially toxic chemicals.

Bought one of each of the following last week. One has a partition, the other doesn't. They're about the same size.

u/AgonyWilford · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I recommend glass ones like this.

They can be used in the oven as well as microwave, dishwasherz freezer etc. Plus you can see what's in them. (And less plastic, even though the lid is plastic.)

You can also get ones with dividers, but I've never felt the need.

I looked at these, but I agree with other posters, reviews do not look great.


Has anyone tried these, by chance? http://www.amazon.com/Removable-Compartments-Microwave-Freezer-Dishwasher/dp/B00MWBJRUO/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1463667169&sr=1-1&keywords=removable+compartment+lunch+box


I was interested in purchasing them. I am not sure how a 'uni' tray works when there's stuff that needs to be heated up in there, and stuff that does not. The trays in the link seem to solve that problem. Or maybe I am missing something?

How about these or these?
I've seen them floating around on amazon. I thought the price is fair, but they're more expensive than the MMG containers...and don't come with any food inside.
