Tips and Secrets for Selecting Meal Prep Containers

Having a decent set of meal prep containers will help keep your organized, making meal prepping easier and faster. They can also look good!

Most meal prep containers have a rectangular shape and will hold 4-5 cups of food.

Use the following tips for selecting them:

  • Brand and size: Buy the same brand and size of containers! Trust me, you don’t want to be sorting through mismatched lids on different types of containers.
  • Quantity: You want to buy a pack of at least 10 containers to have enough ready to be loaded up at any time.
  • Material: Microwaveable, BPA-free plastic containers like these ones are the best lightweight option if you’re always on-the-go. Glass containers like these are a good durable alternative if you want to avoid plastic.
