Here are the best meal prep containers and food storage tips to keep your food fresh – plus, a free meal prep plan to put them into practice!
Store romaine lettuce whole (don't chop it up) until a day or two before you go to use it. Any chopped lettuce should be stored in a Ziploc or silicone Stasher bag with all the air squeezed out
Generally, all other washed and chopped veggies including cabbage, sweet potatoes, peppers, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, zuccchini, etc will last up to 5 or 6 days in the fridge when stored in a glass container with a lid
Store diced potatoes in a glass container with a lid, but store them in water so they don't turn brown
Store opened avocados in a Ziploc or silicone Stasher bag with all the air squeezed out; you can sprinkle some lemon or lime juice overtop to help avoid browning
Store fresh herbs in a glass full of water with a plastic or reusable bag overtop to extend the shelf life to two weeks.
Add a wet paper towel overtop of spinach, arugula and other greens.
