If you’re old enough to remember Tupperware, then you might have memories of your mother’s drawer full of brightly colored plastic bowls in all sizes and shapes.
Was it BPA free?
Was it dishwasher or microwave safe?
What exactly was it made of?
These were questions we did not ask. Because that was the era where plastic seemed like the answer to everything.
Now think to your grandmother’s or your great-grandmother’s kitchen. Open the fridge and you’d find jams and pickles she made herself — all stored in glass.
Turns out, grandma had it right. With that in mind, here are four of our favorite containers used for meal prep (they can be used for leftovers too, of course, or many other purposes).
It can be no surprise, given our total love for Mason jars, that we would list these first. From 4-ounce cuties to 32-ounce behemoths, there is a jar just right for every kind of food prep and storage.
Either way, you can use JarJackets to protect your Mason jars from both bumps and slips. They’re microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe, plus 100-percent non-toxic and they last forever.
As much as we love Mason jars, there are times when another choice might work better (at least that’s what we’ve heard).
Food-grade silicone bags are a great choice because you can reuse them forever and if you’re going for a hike or even just running lots of errands on foot, you might not want the extra weight of glass.
Meal prepping can make life a whole lot easier, healthier and more delicious, but it does require a bit of effort. More tips on that in a prior post.
Even better, it’ll be just as easy to take your meal on the road as it is to eat at home, especially with a little help from JarJackets.
And you’d make your grandmother proud.
