A Clear Solution

A quick little tip for your weekly meal prep.

When your planning and prepping and parring off your meals for the week, use glass storage! Why?


1.     You can see your food so you’re less likely to let your food go bad.


I don’t know about you but my food is much more likely to be neglected and go bad if I can’t see what’s in the containers in my fridge. Wo opens every container when they’re foraging? Keep it simple and make sure you can see your food. Give that lasagna a chance!

2.     You can put the glass in the microwave and oven (make sure to get microwave and oven-safe containers).

I love this one! Right from your fridge, to the fridge at work, to the microwave. Or from the fridge to your oven for dinner while you go clean up and wash off the day. refreshed and ready to eat- voila! Dinner’s ready.

3.     It’s easier to clean with less residue. And more environmentally friendly!!

How many times have you had a plastic container retain the smell of that tuna you stored or the leftover salmon no no one ate because you couldn’t see it! ;) Glass is less porous and holds less stank.

4.     No chemicals in your food!


Plastic containers, when heated- either in the microwave or just from hot food being put in them before cooling- will leech chemicals into your food. Yech. Use glass to avoid this toxic surprise.
