Today I am reviewing a new product I bought from Amazon, it is the Meal Prep Haven’s three, two and one compartment food prep containers. They say they are BPA Free, Microwavable, Freezer Safe, Stackable, Reusable, and Dishwasher Safe. I have to take their word that it is BPA Free, but I tested one of the three compartment containers and I have to say they are all of the above.
I put food that could leak and possible not freeze well. I put in a half of a chicken breast that I cooked in a slow cooker with some of the broth that it was cooked in (in the large side). In one of the smaller compartments I put instant mashed potatoes and in the other some canned baked beans. I put them in the freezer, waited for two weeks to take it out, reheated it in the microwave, then put it in the dishwasher.
I really like the product. The liquid that was with the chicken did not leak into either one of the other compartments and after heating the food in the microwave it tasted just like it did the day I made it. They are a little more expensive than some of the other products like it, but they are very sturdy and the sides that stick out a little don’t really get hot and it makes it easy to take out of the microwave. The only thing I wish I would of done differently when I was heating up the food was to take out the bake beans sooner so they didn’t over cook. The potatoes and the chicken took longer to heat up because they were right out of the freezer.
So if you are looking for meal prep containers I highly recommend this product. I got them because my daughters and I are on a change of life habits path. I would normal say we are trying to diet and lose weight, but that only last for so long. We are working on losing weight, eating better, saving money by not wasting leftovers. I have found that we don’t eat right mainly at lunch time because nothing is ready to just eat so we end up eating what’s not good for us, or something that was made from a box or a can. Sometimes we would just not eat at all, which is just as bad. Both of my daughters that are still home are autistic and one has a tactile problem when it comes to food. With her she usually doesn’t eat what we do or even when we do. Using these will help with her eat better, because I can use my vitamix and blend up veggies that she won’t eat and put them into the things she will.
What do you do to eat better and/or save your left overs?
Thanks for stopping by and have a Blessed day,
