The latest fitness craze doesn’t involve crash dieting or so-called miracle pills. And it doesn’t require an expensive juicer, either. Instead, the newest buzz in healthy living is meal prep. It’s simple, easy to follow, and offers a lot more than just salads.

What is it?

Meal prep is perfectly portioned out healthy meals. They are made in advance so that when you’re ready to eat, you can just pop them in the microwave and have a guilt-free meal in a matter of minutes. Prepared meals like this are also great on-the-go. Bring them to work or the gym and know you have a meal you can feel good about. Plus, with the convenience of the meal being already made, it’s easier to resist the temptation of fast food.

Who’s doing it?

Healthy prepared meals are popping up all over the place, both online and in local markets. There are even lots of home delivery companies that deliver prepared meals right to your doorstep. With companies like Healthy Meals Direct in New York, PREP’D in Oklahoma, or Wolf Meal Prep out of Canada we’re seeing fresh and healthy options available all over.

What do you use for it?

Naturally, you want to package these meals in a container that is freezer safe and microwaveable. Ideally, the container is also reusable. Thankfully, we have just the thing. Reusable plastic meal prep containers from CuBE Plastics fits all these criteria. The standard look is a black base with a clear lid, but we like having options. That’s why we also stock lime green bases and bright orange bases. These help your brand stand out among the competition, but they also help your food presentation pop!
