How to Keep No Reheat Recipes Safe?

Not all food must be reheated, but more often than not it does require being refrigerated and kept in an airtight container. The reason for this is to reduce the risk of food poisoning due to an increase of bacteria in the food- especially food that is initially warmed, moist, and has been left out for two or more hours. It is also a good rule of thumb to keep cooked foods in the refrigerator for less than 5 days to prevent the risk of illness. Freezing your food is typically the safer option for cooked food stored longer than 5 days, so plan ahead with your meal prepping needs. When transporting your prepped food, be sure to continue using your airtight containers.
