How to meal prep (without the food waste)
Bye-bye pricey takeout! We’re making a resolution to eat clean and save our pennies
Tired of shelling out an arm and a leg for a so-so roll and some pricey popcorn? This January, join us in making a New Year’s resolution we can all stick to. We’re talking adding some colour to your salad, vigour to your soup and a bit of pizazz to your lunchbox by meal prepping at home. Here’s to saving on food waste and your pennies… but it still tasting blooming good.
Feeling office envy over your colleague’s oh-so-colourful, healthy, homemade lunch? To upgrade yours, it all starts with the tub. Avoid tucking into limp lettuce at midday with our Klip Lock storage. We’ve got standard sizes for piles of pasta or snack boxes with separators so you can divvy up your protein portions for the week. And just in case your next soup or salad isn’t Michelin star-worthy, our smaller pots are great for keeping seasoning in your drawer – red hot chili flakes are a versatile option that’ll makeover most dishes.
Beat the 4 o’clock sugar slump with some sin-free kale bites. This spray bottle is perfect for dressing your veg before you crisp it up in the oven and making sure you use just the right amount. Fill with your best olive oil and infuse with your own chef-y combo of herbs. Grate in some tangy lemon zest for an aromatic twist, fragrance your balsamic with chilli or for something fresh, try some basil and tomato leaves.
For your lunch to taste as good as it does at home, keep your ingredients separate and assemble at work. Even if it’s just a bit of veg, any moisture can completely alter the harmony of your halloumi-avo-masterpiece. These tubs come with fancy vacuum-technology: perfect for knowing full well your fave bag is safe from spills, even when you’re frantically dashing for the bus.
