Why should you meal prep?

If you’re wondering whether taking time out on your Sunday to prepare your meals in advance is worth the effort here are seven reasons why you should meal prep:

1. You’ll be less stressed

With our self care hats on we want to do as many things as we can to make life less stressful and preparing meals in advance is one of them.

Just think how much easier life will be when you come home from your busy day to not have to wonder what to make for dinner, or even spend time preparing it, because it’s right there in the fridge for you to heat and eat!

It takes the stress out of grocery shopping too, since you have already planned out your meals for the week you’ll know exactly what ingredients you need and what you need to pick up from the store.

2. You’ll save money

Speaking of grocery stores, when you meal prep you will know exactly what you need to buy so you won’t pick up random things that cost you money.

You’ll also save yourself on those multiple trips to the store each week where you always come out with more than you went in for.

3. You won’t waste food

The other side effect of going to the store with no idea what you need is that you buy too much food and end up wasting it.

This is bad for your budget and the environment.

When you meal prep you’ll no longer have this problem!

4. You’ll master the art of portion control

If you’ve been meaning to lose weight meal prep can help you with that too because meal prep containers can help you with portion control.

You’ll have a better idea of how many calories you’re consuming too because you know in advance exactly what you’ll eat each day for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

5. You’ll eat more healthy

Speaking of looking after your body, when you meal prep you’re inclined to eat more healthily too.

You can follow specific diets like keto or paleo while you meal prep, but even if you don’t because you’re making food from scratch rather than eating processed food or take out you’ll eat more whole foods.

Not only is this good for you waistline it’s good for your health too.

6. You’ll save time

Sure you have to invest a few hours on a Sunday afternoon (or whatever day you choose) getting your meals prepped for the week but it saves you time overall.

This is because you make your food in batches, so rather than making chicken every day, or chopping veggies you just do it once.

Oh and it saves on doing the dishes too, which is always a bonus right?

7. You’ll discover new recipes

If you feel like you’re stuck in a rut and eating the same thing week in week out because it doesn’t require any thought then meal prep is just what you need to introduce some variety into your meals.

You’ll find yourself looking up new recipes to try, and mixing and matching from the different food categories to come up with new combinations!

How do you meal prep and not get bored?

Want to know more about how to meal prep and not get bored?

1. Try a new recipe every week

Seriously there are hundreds of meal prep ideas out there so challenge yourself to try a new recipe each week.

You can check out the collections we shared at the top of this page for starters, or follow our Meal Prep board on Pinterest.

2. Eat a variety of fruit and veggies

You will of course have some staple meals that you want to eat each week and that’s fine. You can switch things up a little by trying different fruit or veggie combinations.

3. Switch up your proteins

Same goes for your proteins, if you find yourself leaning towards chicken recipes why not try some fish ideas instead?

Or how about getting your protein from eggs, tofu or quinoa?

4. Experiment with sauces

Sauces are your friend when it comes to adding variety to your meal prep, and it’s easier to whip up a homemade (healthier than the store bought alternative) sauce than you might think!

5. Use your freezer

Using your freezer as part of your meal prep routine will help to avoid the need to eat the same thing every single day of the week.

You can cook in batches and store half in the freezer for a later week.

6. Treat yourself to meal prep containers

It is possible to meal prep using regular food storage containers but you will need to make sure you have enough to store all of your separate meals.

And also let’s be honest they’re not the most exciting things in the world so if you’re worried about getting bored treat yourself to some meal prep containers instead.

Meal prep containers are specifically designed for meal prepping and come with compartments to keep different food ty[es separate so you don’t have to worry about things getting soggy.

They’re not overly expensive either, a set of 21 stackable BPA free plastic containers can cost under 20 bucks.

Glass meal prep containers are also an option if you’re willing to pay a bit more.

Just make sure you think about the different kinds of meals you want to prep before you rush out and buy a big stack of containers.

The ones with compartments are perfect for separating your proteins from your fruit and veggies, but if you want to prep soup you’d be better off with a bowl with a lid or even a thermos flask.


Best Glass Meal Prep Containers


LOVING these glass meal prep containers - I need more for my system! Thanks for sharing!

Whether you’re a plastic lover or hater it’s always a good idea to have some glass containers as part of your meal prep system.

They don’t stain or hold onto strong smells like plastic containers do so they’re good for storing foods in the fridge or freezer during the week.

They’re also oven safe (where plastic containers are not) so there’s less washing up when you’re reheating dinner since you don’t need to transfer meals from plastic container to a baking dish to reheat.

Here’s our pick of the best glass meal prep containers to get you started.

Mason Jars

16oz Mason Jars16oz Mason JarsCLICK FOR BEST PRICE

Mason jar containers are great for meal prep lunches because you can fill them with salads or even turn them into Buddha jars.

You can also use them at breakfast time for making overnight oats or freeze-ahead smoothies.

And they’re perfect for freezing soups, keeping fruits and veggies fresh and filling with healthy desserts.

Seriously if you only want one type of glass meal prep containers then get mason jars because they’re great for portion control and are about as versatile as you can get!

A 16oz jar (pint) is a great portion size unless you are using them for salads and you LOVE lettuce in which case go for the 32oz size (quart) to leave plenty of room for those leafy greens!

Make sure you choose the wide mouth version because it makes it easier to eat directly from the jar with a spoon.

Oh and here’s a tip if you want to use your Mason jars for freezing, if you look closely there is actually a line near the top of the jar marked “For Freezing” which leaves enough room in the jar for the food to expand as it freezes. Clever right?

Pyrex Simply Store Containers

Pyrex 3-cup Rectangle Glass Food Storage Set Container (Pack of 6 Containers)Pyrex 3-cup Rectangle Glass Food Storage Set Container (Pack of 6 Containers)CLICK FOR BEST PRICE

When you think glass storage containers you probably think Pyrex and this set of rectangular containers with lids is a great way to keep food fresh in the fridge all week.

If you are starting from scratch with your glass container collection then make sure you buy multiple containers that are the same shape and size so that they stack neatly in the fridge. The neater things stack the better use you will make of the space.

This set stacks really nicely and of course being made of glass they can safely be used in the fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven and microwave (just remove the lid first as that is plastic).

One thing to take note of with these Pyrex containers is that while the lids fit snugly enough they are not completely leak proof so they’re not your best choice for carrying away from home (like the snapware boxes that are coming up next!)

Snapware Leakproof Pyrex Glass Food Keeper Set

Snapware Airtight & Leakproof Pyrex Glass Food Keeper Set (19-Piece Set)Snapware Airtight & Leakproof Pyrex Glass Food Keeper Set (19-Piece Set)CLICK FOR BEST PRICE

Unlike the previous set these Pyrex containers have lids that fasten with a clip and they are advertised as being 100% airtight and leakproof making them suitable for use on the go.

This popular set includes eight containers with lids, one steamer tray and two produce keeper trays. Storing your fruits and veggies in the produce trays should help them last longer and the steamer tray is useful for separating items in the containers.

It’s so important to label your containers when you’re food prepping, especially if you’re filling your freezer, and these lids are specifically designed with an are that can be written on with a wet erase marker.

Glass Meal Prep food Storage Containers with Dividers

Glass Meal Prep Food Storage ContainersGlass Meal Prep Food Storage ContainersCLICK FOR BEST PRICE

If you really hate the thought of plastic containers for lunches on the go but you really still want your three compartment Bento style lunch box these are the lunch boxes for you.

They’re made from glass, and have two fixed dividers inside, making up the three compartments. There’s even a clever storage area in the lid for your knife and fork!

Each container holds 32oz so they’re great for portion control.

They’re safe for use in the fridge, freezer, microwave (without the lid) dishwasher and oven.

Best Plastic Meal Prep Containers (BPA Free)


I've been searching for plastic meal prep containers and I love that these are all BPA free! Thanks for sharing!

If you need to add some more containers to your collection so that you can maximise your meal prepping efficiency you’re probably wondering which are the best plastic meal prep containers (BPA free) to buy.

Which is why we pulled together this list of our favourite storage boxes and lunch boxes for meals on the go.

Just fill each pot with the right food group and you’ll have the exact portion that you need of each one.

They’re not used for storage, just for measuring. Think of them as smart measuring cups!

Glad Matchware Containers

It’s useful to have different sized storage containers which is why this set is so popular. It comes with four round containers, four square and four rectangular.

The lids fit tightly so you don’t have to worry about leaks, and they can safely go in the fridge, freezer, microwave and the dishwasher.

Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Food Storage Containers

One of the downsides of using plastic boxes is they can be a nightmare to store, but not with this easy find lid system from Rubbermaid. All the lids lock together and then attach to the bottom of a stack of boxes. Genius! One lid will fit multiple bases too so it’s easier to match them together.

We love that the 42 piece set has a wide range of sizes for storing different food types.

The lids all fit snugly so you don’t have to worry about leaks, you can even use them for soup. To open and close them make use of the tab on the corner of each lid to save your fingertips.

They are freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe.

Freezer Labels

You need to know exactly what’s what in your freezer and also in your fridge too so make sure you take the time to label everything!

Rubbermaid Produce Saver

Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Saver Food Storage ContainerRubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Saver Food Storage ContainerBuy it here

You’re going to be storing lots of veggies as part of your meal prep routine so it’s worth investing in a couple of these product savers.

The small box is perfect for berries, the medium one for strawberries and the large one for your leafy greens.

Each box has a layer at the bottom which keeps the moisture away from your fruits and veggies so they last longer, and there’s a vent in the top too to allow the air to circulate.

Rubbermaid say that produce stays fresh for 80% longer than if you left it in the store packaging.

EasyLunchboxes 3 Compartment Meal Prep Containers

EasyLunchboxes 3-Compartment Bento Lunch Box ContainersEasyLunchboxes 3-Compartment Bento Lunch Box ContainersBuy it here

If you don’t want to carry your lunch in a black plastic container but you do still want 3 compartments then check out these Bento style boxes.

They come in a set of four and each one has a different coloured lid. If you assign a colour to each family member they’ll be able to find their lunch in the fridge super easy!

These lunch boxes have been designed with kids in mind so the lids fit snugly but can be removed easily. That means they’re great for solid food but don’t try and carry soup or other liquids in them or you’ll end up with a puddle at the bottom of your bag!

They fit nice and snugly inside the EasyLunchboxes cooler bag.

Rubbermaid LunchBox Sandwich Kit

This modular kit from Rubbermaid is another great option, especially if you like to carry a lot of individual snacks with you for a long day.

It’s made up of one large container, four small cube containers and an ice pack. Everything snaps together so you don’t need to worry about losing bits in your bag, and the ice pack keeps every thing cool.

All of the containers are BPA free, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe.

Bentgo All-in-One Stackable Bento Box

Bentgo All-in-One Stackable Lunch/Bento Box, PurpleBentgo All-in-One Stackable Lunch/Bento Box, PurpleBuy it here

We also like this bento box from Bentgo which stacks together and is held in place by a handy strap.

The containers nestle inside each other for easy storage and it comes with a plastic knife, fork and spoon.

The one thing we don’t like about this is the central divider can’t go in the microwave or the dishwasher, which means you have to remember to remove it.
