Before you begin any meal prepping it is important that you have high quality containers for you to store your food in. You want your food to stay fresh as long as possible while it is being stored in the refrigerator. Your container of choice should follow these guidelines:
I would not recommend purchasing any container that does not follow these five guidelines at a minimum. It will make your life much easier. A quick search on Amazon for meal prep containers will return just under 2,000 results. I use a generic brand 28oz black plastic container and I have no problems with freshness for up to a week. I buy the single well containers but if you prep food that should be separated I would buy the 2 or 3 well containers. If you can spend a bit more money then I would buy glass containers. They will last longer and will likely be more air-tight than their plastic counterparts. Whatever container you choose to purchase, buy at least 10 so you have one for lunch and dinner for each day of the work week. Click the pictures above to be take to Amazon to purchase!
