Twist and Lock Storage Jars for Meal Prep on the Go

I'm a big fan of making meal-prep as easy as possible. I like these because they stack perfectly in the fridge without taking up too much space. These take up the least amount of space (in car, bag, etc) than anything else but gives you multiple compartments for small meals throughout the day. I use the top one to put medication I need throughout the day.

These don't cost too much, are very durable - $12.99 Canadian - Click here to check it out

Blender Bottle GoStak Strorage Stack.

Blender Bottle

I first purchased the GoStak for snack prep throughout the day and then realized that it was also made to fit inside of the Blender Bottle. This bottle has a steel ball that lets you blend simple shakes. If you are interested in having shakes for snacks, this container is perfect and has a mixer included.

Also not expensive for a great mixer that even works with the GoStak - $12.99 Canadian - Click Here to check it out

Meal Prep Bag

I've always said that the best way to eat healthy is to prepare. The best tip or "trick" I've ever done was doing a big meal prep on the Sunday of every week. It takes a little up-front work but you have food with you at all times, you don't have to make a lunch again and it's QUICK AND HEALTHY! πŸ™‚ Here's a bag if your serious about eating healthy. This is a "big boy" and the one I use since I'm usually out all the time (teaching seminars all over Ontario). I'm also big on maximizing my time and find if I can fill this giant piece of luggage up on Sunday then I don't have to think about food for the rest of the week! πŸ™‚

I was just about to order another product (this meal bag here) but, at the last second, my research brought me to the JAxx bag here. They both have essential items to set you up for success (custom containers and storage) but the Jaxx is $20 cheaper than the other one and seems just as good.Β  I'm recommending this oneΒ  but if I see a smaller one that looks good, I'll throw it up here as well. πŸ™‚ **Click here or on the image to check it out on Amazon - $38.98 US

Portable Oven

I actually use this in my car! I have an adapter that lets me use this in the car but You could obviously use this while camping or anywhere else. This one is pretty versatile. πŸ™‚ I travel a lot to teach seminars and, very often, there's nowhere to heat up food and I searched this item out when I got sick of eating cold food. When you meal-prep and don't have a microwave at work it's all cold food!

I also prefer to sit and work at Starbucks than in my "office" but purchasing hot food at any location doesn't provide healthy options.Β  This works fantastic and was the least expensive option I saw. Well worth it - $39.95 Canadian - Check it out here

Car Plug Adapter

This is a weird one to put in the "meal prep" section but I use this all the time with the portable oven in my car. πŸ™‚ ... I also use this all the time while I'm away teaching a seminar and have time to kill to plug in my laptop and get some work done in the car without having my laptop die. πŸ™‚ ... This plug also has many uses. It comes with USB plugs (2 of them) which are always handy but the plug you can use with anything.

You can get this for $19.99 Canadian - Check it out here

The Magic Bullet!! πŸ™‚

The Magic Bullet has been around for a long time and for good reason. It's awesome. It's a must-have and if you don't have one, get one! :p You get a great mix of any shake that you want but, unlike the Blender Bottle (above), you can get creative with your mixes (nuts, frozen berries, flax, chia, etc.). I'm a big fan of having a shake as a snack and for YEARS I take two Bullet Shakes with me for the day. There's a cheaper version of the Magic Bullet here ($39.88 - smaller set) but I would recommend the slightly larger set here because it has more cups that gives a nicer "buffer zone" for dishes.

The one I'm recommending is $69.99 and you can check it out here!
