Use Meal Preparation Containers to Achieve Portion Control


Meal preparation containers are a great tool to help with portion control and meal planning. These containers come in a variety of sizes and designs, and can be used for a variety of meals, from breakfast to dinner.


Here are some tips for using meal preparation containers.


  1. Plan your meals in advance: Before you start using your meal preparation containers, take some time to plan your meals for the week. This will help you to know what to put in each container and make sure you have a variety of healthy options to choose from.


  1. Measure out your portions: Use measuring cups or a food scale to measure out the appropriate portions for each container. This will help you to control the amount of food you're consuming and make sure you're getting the right balance of nutrients.



  1. Use different colors or labels: This can help you to quickly identify which container has what food and you can also assign different color or labels for each type of meals, like salad, meat, or grains.


  1. Pre-prep your ingredients: To save time during the week, pre-chop vegetables, cook grains, and portion out proteins in advance. This way, all you need to do is assemble your meals in the containers.


  1. Consider the size of the container: Make sure that the container you're using is the right size for your needs. If you're packing a meal for work or school, you'll likely need a larger container than if you're packing a snack.



  1. Keep in mind the type of food: Some type of food may not last as long as others, especially the ones that are more perishable. Make sure to put them in airtight containers or that you consume them first.



  1. Clean and reuse: Make sure to wash your containers after every use, it's important to maintain good hygiene and you can reuse them to save money and be more environmentally friendly.
