The Best Food Storage Containers (& Creative Options) l EP#102

Meal Prep Monday Podcast™

Nov 1 2021 • 12 mins

In today’s episode, meal prep expert Allison Schaaf shares her recommendations for the best storage containers for your weekly meal prep. She shares why, from both a taste and health perspective, you may want to rethink plastic bags and containers for food storage.

Make sure to use tempered glass. This means you’ll be able to put them in the freezer and the oven (although they can still break with extreme temperature changes).

Also look for durable, BPA-free lids. I’ve had the best luck with Glasslock (linked below).

You can also use stainless steel bowls with a silicon lid or beeswax paper over the bowl to seal things in the fridge as a backup.

Silicone bags, like Stasher bags, also work well, especially for dry food like trail mix.
