Ultimate Guide to Meal Prep Containers

The most important part of overall wellness is nutrition. Without a balanced diet of good carbs, healthy fats, and plenty of protein, nothing else matters.  Meal prepping is one of the most helpful ways to ensure that you stay on target with your wellness goals. It guarantees that you have pre-portioned, nutrient-rich, foods ready and waiting for you every day, to make eating healthy the most convenient option available to you.  Pre-planning meals also help you curb hunger, by getting your body on a schedule, and also helps fight the temptation to pick up those ready to eat meals from your local gas station.  By making eating healthy even more convenient, you are significantly increasing your chances for nutritional and fitness success. Meal prep containers are a vitally important aspect of meal prepping, and without quality, durable, and affordable containers you’re setting yourself for a meal prep failure!

  1. how much cost for three meals or two meals per month

  2. do you delivery those foods at st. louis mo ?

    • Hi Sherwin. We actually are not a meal prep company. Our goal is to educate people on the ease and benefits of meal prepping, so you could make meal prepping a part of your lifestyle. It’s SO easy!!

      Did a quick search for you and found, Pure Plates (http://www.pureplatesstl.com/about/), which looks to be a company in your area that may deliver to you. Hope that helps

  3. Just what I was looking for!

  4. Do you have a variety pack of containers? Since I am only one person, I do not need so many of each one.

  5. Excellent information. Thank you.

  6. Can you help me put some meal planning menu together

  7. I would love to be able to get weekly healthy meal prep recipes with a grocery list. Do you know good places for that. Emailed to me or where I could sign up for?

    • Hi Jaynie – we do not have a resource for that on our blog at this time. However, it is something we are currently in the process of working on. Please stay up to date by signing up for our newsletter. We will be sharing that content there.

  8. Hi. Do you know of any containers that are disposable and environment-friendly?

  9. Just what I needed!

  10. Thank you this website really helped me out alot ! Its simple straight to the point and understanding!! Making me feel more motivated and confidence

  11. How does this work when you have a salad in one compartment and an entree in another? Do you have to just eat everything cold since there’s no way to just reheat one segment?

  12. Hey i am Starting a meal prep service and really need to buy in bulk. I love The red ones that are circular. Who do i have To reach out too?

    • Hey Clarence. We’re actually working on a bulk pack right now (100-120 pieces). We’re still a couple months away due to backorders and logistics, but stay tuned and we’ll let you know as soon as the bulk pack is ready.

  13. I bought a snack size meal prep set today. On the wrapping, it said that it was good for 10 uses. Why only 10 uses?

    • Hi Meg, That is a great question! The meal prep containers are the middle ground between single-use disposable and long term reusable containers such as glass. We are actually in the process of removing the 10 uses since they have proven to last much longer. If you aren’t abusive with the containers they will last. However, some people are very rough with them and thus the recommendation for 10 uses.

  14. Am I able to prep a weeks worth of meals and freeze them in the containers?

  15. I have 3 different types of your containers. I have to say I love love love them. I even use them when I’m at home, since it has the portions (the Red Round) marked inside the container. My husband is in the oil field and he is able to prep his food for the week in these and take them with him. Btw we are way past 10 used on them. They feel thin, but have sustained 3 kids and a husband. Thanks so much!!!!

    Are all 4 types of containers microwave/dishwasher/freezer safe?

    Do the lids on these containers seal each compartment? Also, are they thick enough to use with a food sealer?

  18. I have been having trouble with the red set for some reason the lids are not snapping on. I have bought several of the other sizes and they fit together great but I would like to send meals to my Grandma but with the issue of the lids it hinders me a bit.

  19. Approximately how many’s does each “meal” last in the refrigerator?

    • Hi Theresa – If you’re asking about how many days the meal will last, it really depends on what you’re making. Chicken/Beef hold up longer than fish would at the same refrigerated temperature.

  20. I am wondering if the container can be brought in bulk? Really needed all of this information. I will better be able to prepare meals for my elderly family members. This would make it much easier for them to handle.
