Don't be intimidated: Meal Prep is Easier than you think

The idea of preparing all of your meals for the week ahead of time can be daunting to some, but don't be intimidated by the idea of meal prepping. It's not nearly as scary or as hard as you think. Check out "Meal Prepping 101" if you don't believe me, and see for yourself just how simple it can be.

The most important aspect of fitness is nutrition. Nothing else matters, without a balanced diet of good carbs, healthy fats, and plenty of protein. You could spend all day in the gym on every machine known to man, but if when you step into your kitchen your healthy habits stop, then you have essentially wasted your energy for nothing. Meal prepping is one of the most helpful ways to ensure that you stay on target with your health and fitness goals. It guarantees that you have nutrient rich foods ready and waiting for you everyday, to make eating healthy the most convenient option available to you. After all, the most popular reason for eating unhealthy foods is because it’s quick, easy, or convenient. By making eating healthy even more convenient, you are significantly increasing your chances for nutritional success. Meal prep containers are a vitally important aspect of meal prepping, and without quality, durable, and affordable meal prep containers to assist in your healthy meal preps, success is not sustainable.

Save Money

It may seem like the drive thru dollar menu is a great value, or that all you can eat wing night at your favorite restaurant will save you a ton of money, but in reality both of these dinner choices are a drain on your bank account. Buying whole and healthy ingredients may give you sticker shock at first, but once you come to realize how many different meals you can prepare with those foods, and how many days they will feed you for, it quickly becomes evident that fine dining, fast food establishments, and everything in between is just a huge waste of money.

Nutrient Rich Diet

Eating out definitely has it’s perks. You don’t have to cook, and you don’t have to clean; no one has to agree on what they want to eat, and you can all order your own meals regardless of what anyone else is having. But the benefits just don’t seem worth it when you factor in the money spent, and the calories consumed. Especially when you can get all of those benefits from a weekly meal prep, which costs marginally less and will be more nutritious for you and your family.

Finally Full

It’s not a strange, or unexplainable phenomenon that the more you eat, the more hungry you feel. This happens because of a chemical reaction, caused by the foods which you’re eating, that triggers your brain to crave more food; not because you need more food, but because you need more nourishment. The only way to finally feel full is to feed your body correctly so that these chemical reactions cease to exist.

Less Busy

Saving yourself hours every night by already having healthy meals prepared for yourself and your family gives you back hours to your day. Hours that you can choose to designate to whatever you want. This time can help you to feel less busy in your everyday life; not just because you’ll have significantly less to do, but because you’ll also have more time to complete the necessary tasks.

Relaxation

So much of our time is spent stressing out about the future, but by taking time to prepare accordingly for it, we can eliminate that stress and embrace the periods of relaxation that will follow. Meal prep container TV dinners, allow you to focus on your personal needs before the nutritional needs of others.

Organizational

Colorful meal prep containers do wonders for improving the organization of your refrigerator and freezer. With seven different colors, including: red, purple, gold, green, blue, orange, and black the organizational options are abundant. Whether each person in the family gets their own color, or a different color is assigned to each day of the week, meal prepping organization has never been easier, or more salient.

Productivity

Finding more hours in the day is as easy as preparing meal preps. Once your food is cooked and prepackaged for the week, that daily task is taken off of the table, leaving you with more time to get more important things done. Whether your productivity involves having more time to focus at work, or more time to interact with your family, you’ll certainly find it if you take a little time out of a single day to meal prep for the entire week.

In conclusion

Meal prep containers are a vital piece of the puzzle and one that you’ll be lost without. There are those that will tell you that different containers are significantly better for different situations, but the truth is that if you buy a set of quality, durable, and affordable meal prep containers you’ll be set. You might be asking yourself “What does the container matter?” and lucky for you, I have the answer. Take a look at the chart below and see if you have a preference of which meal prep container you'd rather eat from.

Our Meal Prep Containers Boast Quality: Here are a few reason why you should select ISO meal prep containers

North-American Made

When you buy a meal prep container that has been made in North America, you're getting a guarantee that the product is compliant with a higher caliber of safety requirements than those that are made in Eastern countries such as:

  • China
  • Korea
  • Taiwan
  • India
  • Vietnam
  • Malaysia

Virgin Polypropylene

Recycled polypropylene brings with it a host of problems, including the fact that it’s never guaranteed that the plastic used to make your new food containers, hasn’t previously been used for things like lawn furniture, or storage pails. These recycled products can be rather dirty and thus contain trace amounts of these contaminants, that are then transferred to your plastic meal prep containers. Buy virgin polypropylene plastics for your food containers and you won’t have to worry about what toxins may be lurking in, on, or around your meals. The most important quality your meal prep containers need to have is being made from virgin polypropylene. Everyone loves recycling and recycled products because they are good for the environment, but when it comes to the container that is going to hold food items that you plan to ingest, you need to make sure it's not made from a recycled plastic. Our Meal Prep Containers Have Only Ever Been Meal Prep Containers

Eco-Friendly

Buying Isolator Fitness meal prep containers also means that you can be sure that the plastic in which you’re storing food that will eventually be put into your body is: 100% BPA Free Prop 65 compliant Phthalate-Free Eco-friendly The plastic that we use is lighter, and thinner than other products, ensuring that we do not waste any precious resources, but also strong enough to stand up to everyday use, because they are infact intended to be used every day.

Reusable

ISO meal prep containers are designed and built to be used every single day, to be tossed between, freezer, refrigerator, meal prep bag, microwave, sink, and dishwasher all in the course of the day and to be ready to face it all again the very next day if necessary.

BPA-Free

BPA, otherwise known as bisphenol A., is an industrial chemical that is found in certain food and beverage plastic containers. It is possible that the BPA chemical can cause negative health effects related to the brain, prostate gland, and behavior of fetuses, infants, and young children. It is also possible for this chemical to seep into the food or beverage which are held within containers containing it, which is why buying BPA plastic is vitally important to the health of your family.

Space-Efficient

Undertaking the task of meal prepping for a single person can result in the use of as many as 40 meal prep containers in a single week (depending on how frequently a person eats, and how many meals they’ll be meal prepping ahead of time). For an entire family, that number can become quite a bit larger. Investing in space efficient meal prep containers is important to ensuring that they will all fit in your freezer, fridge, and cupboards.

Microwave, Dishwasher, Freezer Safe

Freezer storage capability is essential. Having a product that can keep your food fresh in the freezer, without worrying about cracking, or breaking of the plastic, or freezer burn on the food is key. It is especially convenient to have these same containers be microwave and dishwasher safe as well, so that from storage to clean up, you’ve only dirtied, and have to clean, one container.

Did You Know:

Products made from recycled plastics often come from unhygienic and unsafe recycling sites. (http://apecsec.org/pros-and-cons-of-recycling/) These sites are often the homes of millions of bacteria that cause the spread of diseases and cause infections. These toxins are often captured within the recycled materials found there. I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound like a place I want my mouth anywhere near! Don't get me wrong, I'm all for recycling. In fact, my outdoor chairs are made from recycled plastic materials, but then again I don't store food on my outdoor chairs...

The facts are in. Meal prep containers MATTER! Everything about the container matters, from the materials used to make it, to the manufacturing process, the sites on which they were constructed, and which countries those manufacturing plants happen to be within. All of these factors go into determining the quality and dependability of the meal prep container that you’re about to buy. Make sure that you know your facts, about your containers before you buy, because these facts have the ability to affect your health and safety, as well as the health and safety of your loved ones.

Meal Prep is also about Economy of Time

What's the last thing you want to do after a long day at work, and often the first thing you have to do? COOK!

No one likes to rush home from work only to have to work more by preparing a healthy meal for their family. This leads to a multitude of problems.

There's an easy solution to this problem though, and it's guaranteed to work every single time. Prepare your weekly meals before the week begins, and store them in meal prep containers in your refrigerator or freezer until you're ready to eat them. It's so simple that it actually works.

Once the meals are prepared it's like having your very own stash of the healthiest TV dinners available. Pop your pre packaged containers into the microwave and in minutes of getting home you'll be eating a healthy, homemade meal.

Having an abundance of fresh pre made meals at your disposal will benefit your life in a few different aspects. You will find that you are:

 

You'll save money by avoiding the drive thru's and skipping the restaurant meals instead opting for more nutritious foods prepared for your family by you. That's how you'll stay on track and stick to a healthier diet and also how you'll make sure that your family is healthy and happy. Since you're now fueling your body with the nutrients it craves you'll find that you're hungry less often.

 

Since you're spending less time cooking you'll find you have more time which will lessen your stress. Last but certainly not least when you're meals are pre made and organized in appropriate containers your life will seems more organized, and you'll find you have more time do focus on the important things in life, making you happier and more productive.

I'm getting ahead of myself though. There is one key component to meal prepping that has to be addressed so that you can make the most of your meals. You need quality meal prep containers.

What does the container matter? You might ask yourself. Lucky for you I have the answer. Take a look at the table below and see if you have a preference of which meal prep container you'd rather eat from.

You'll want to make sure that the container you choose are stackable for easy and clean storage. It's important to make sure that you invest in reusable and not just disposable containers. This will ensure quality materials and manufacturing.
