From top, egg roll in a bowl except we made it with boiled chicken instead, Cajun turkey meatloaf (not really a recipe I found, just some random creation I've progressively changed until I really liked it) with mashed potatoes and okra, and turkey rollups with spinach and aged white cheddar served with nuts for him and roasted chickpeas for me, carrots, celery, and grapes (ranch not pictured)

The containers I use are these. They are reusable and dishwasher and microwave safe. I love them.

u/hclpfan · 74 pointsr/gaming

This already happens. I've been using a banana stand as my headphone hook for 4 years. If you look them up on amazon all of the user submitted photos are headphones.

u/ImaginaryCheetah · 60 pointsr/electricians

dude, you bring a microwave to the job site? that is some next level genius there.

i've got a nice thermos, and grabbed one of these

to run off the truck inverter... but i think i really do need a microwave.

bringing your own food is way healthier than eating out, anyways.

u/deosama · 55 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I use these containers

I use reusable containers. I really like doing all the meal prep, and cleaning on Sunday. Then during the week I don't have to cook, or do any dishes. I put my empty containers in the dishwasher and do 2 loads during the week before Sunday. Super simple, and a time saver. :)

u/IFORGOTMYLOGINTWICE · 53 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I have what would appear to be the same containers. I guy them on Amazon. They work well but you should use plastic cutlery with them because metal knives will score them.

They are microwave and dishwasher safe.

Its a timed lock box. You set the time and its locked until then. No override. Feel free to ask if you have any questions about it!

u/Scurvy-Jones · 43 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I just bought those same containers the other day!

$10 for 20 of them on Amazon right now!

u/Honesty_Addict · 32 pointsr/trees

I found mine on Amazon.

Not a shill, just a big fan of this thing.

Edit, more detail: I ordered the box on a whim one day. I was smoking very regularly at this point, most days, and starting to see my productivity slip. I'm a writer, so I'm my own boss, but I could definitely see myself losing whole days when I could have been working.

When the box arrived I was excited, but nervous. I wasn't sure how I would feel once I hit the button and locked the case. I set it for 10 minute bursts the first night, using the box to help regulate my intake. I found it far easier to focus on other things now that I wasn't having to constantly be thinking about whether I should take another hit or not. There's no killswitch on the box, no way to unlock it without destroying it (and even that would take a fair effort), so I just forgot about it every time until the box slid open ten minutes later.

At the end of that night I set it to open the next evening. I was worried that would be harder, but it barely affected me all day. That night I set it for the end of the work week. I spent a whole week with only mild cravings, but most of the time it just wasn't on my mind.

So that's my pattern now. It's surprisingly easy to deal with psychologically. It's been invaluable in the process of me improving my relationship with weed. Couldn't recommend it enough.

u/az116 · 28 pointsr/sousvide

Doing like that it in a cooler might save you .25 cents in energy costs for a 24 hour cook while looking terrible and not allowing you to see what's going on. It's not really keeping things much more consistent.

And this:

Collapsible Hinged Sous Vide Container Lid

And you have pretty much a perfect setup in my opinion for only $25. If you really are concerned about it not being insulated, you could use towels or get a sleeve for ~$20. But then you can't see in it again. And you would need to use it for almost 2000 hours to recoup your energy costs.

u/MeteorPolice · 26 pointsr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

This is what I use

u/MarrusAstarte · 26 pointsr/sousvide

> a better way to do it—short of cutting a device-shaped-hole in the lid—is to use Ping-Pong balls.

Cutting a device-shaped-hole in a lid is actually quite easy for some kinds of lids.

Ping pong balls are cheap but so are these lids and the containers that go with them.

u/pronounced_eyegor · 25 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Amazon. These are my preferred choice

u/devenluca · 24 pointsr/AskWomen


It's nice and small but it can hold so much. And I love to go all out for my lunch since I don't eat much dinner. Add to the fact I hate when I spill soup in my backpack this is the best thing since magic for me.

u/kaidomac · 22 pointsr/mealprep

I have a microwave at my office space rental, but I'm on the road a lot with my job, so I've looked into many different solutions. There are a variety of options available.

Non-electronic storage:

They make a squattier version of the Thermos you have from RTIC, which is what I sometimes use:

Spoon for size comparison:

It's not so deep that I can't get a spoon in. It'd be nice if it were a little wider, but it does the job. A bit smaller than your Thermos at 17 ounces. Pinnacle Thermoware sells insulated a pretty nice insulated bowl set, if you specifically want a bowl shape:

If you need more food than just one bowl can hold, Ailijin makes a 2-bowl, single-tote insulated solution: (kind of a round bento-style)

If you need to heat up a soup before you go to put into an insulated storage container, I use one of these vented microwave mugs, so it doesn't explode all over the inside of my microwave when heating up:

Electronic storage:

Beyond that, there are 3 common electronic options, depending on what power you have available: (12V in a car or an A/C wall plug)

  1. Crockpot Lunch Crock (A/C power)
  2. RoadPro 300F lunchbox oven (12V car power)
  3. HotLogic lunchbox oven (A/C power, car-compatible A/C, or 75w+ inverter for car power)

    The Crockpot unit is basically like your Thermos, except you plug it in to heat it, and it has a pretty nice wide bowl size. My buddy has one & it's pretty dang handy! My brother has the RoadPro, as he's on the road all day long, and it's super nice because it does a pretty decent job (heats up to 300F, basically like a mini oven), so you can heat up burritos, melt cheesy stuff like lasagna, etc.

    The HotLogic is nice because instead of just being a mini portable crockpot, it's also a mini oven, and can be used from a wall plug, a newer-vehicle 2-prong car plug, or with a 75-watt (minimum) inverter. There's a good Facebook group available as well! It heats up to 218F & then holds the food at 180F, so it's more for reheating food than cooking food, like the RoadPro can do (HotLogic says you can cook chicken breast in it in about 2 hours, but ehhh...), but it's also a bit more versatile as you can plug it directly into the wall an hour before lunch & have your food ready to go without needing a microwave or toaster oven.

    Homemade soup:

    If you're into soup & haven't heard of Souper Cubes, it's basically a silicone ice cube tray with 1/2-cup & 1-cup markings (4 per tray) & lids, plus a wire frame around the top to hold it together, which makes portioning out bulk soup cooks super easy:

    I mean, just look at this insanity:

    Also, if you're into making soups at home, the Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker) is my makes cooking soup a lot faster & more automated (aka easier overall!). Poaching from another one of my posts, here are some soup ideas: (I use the IP for soups, stews, bisques, broths, stocks, etc.)

  1. Store a variety of soup flavors at home (Souper Cubes or canned soup)
  2. Heat it up in the vented mug if you need it hot before you leave
  3. Put it into your container of choice
  4. Heat up your container (if needed) & enjoy!

    For me, it's really about nailing down a solid process & taking care of all of the little annoying details. Like you said, the tall insulated mugs are too small to get a spoon into & eat out of, so you have to find something better that meets the needs of your individual situation better. Then, setting up a system to support convenience means you can always have a variety of soups to grab before you leave the house, whether it's a can that you heat up in a vented mug & store in a food thermos or a frozen Souper Cube that you toss in a Crockpot Lunch Crock & plug in before lunch!
u/Pocket_Monster · 20 pointsr/Cooking

Can he get a good quality thermos? If so, he can bring a hearty soup, a lighter soup with side sandwich, rice with some grilled chicken, fried rice, stir fried noodles, some pastas etc... pretty much anything that is on the denser side or anything that will retain heat pretty well. It won't be piping hot, but with a good thermos it should be warm for many hours. I wouldn't store it overnight in a fridge, but before leaving for the day, you can pop whatever is for lunch in the microwave and then place it in the thermos.

u/tigrovna · 18 pointsr/antiMLM

I got these ones because I like having one compartment and because the came in a pack of 7 as opposed to 15-20 like a lot of the other choices

There are some nice glass options that I would have preferred but I was worried about people stealing them from the work fridge. I ended up switch to intermittent fasting so I don't even take a lunch to work anymore so I'm kind of glad I didn't spend more for the glass lol

u/Idontlikeredditors6 · 17 pointsr/cigars

Lets start before Cubans, and I'll assume you know nothing about cigars and just start from the beginning.

Okay, as far as humidors go, there are a bunch of options. The quickest and easiest way is to buy a tupperware container that seals well and a few boveda packets (you can get either on amazon). I'd recommend 65% if you're using a "tupperdor" (69% for a wooden humidor...of course depending on the climate where you live etc...). Rough rule of thumb is to use one 60 gram packets for every 25 cigars the container can fit. We'll get more into wood humidors later.

The next thing you'll want to have is a digital hygrometer. You can snag one for 15-20 bucks on amazon. If you're using multiple tupperdors, I wouldn't worry about having one in each, just switch the meter to a different container every week or so to make sure they're staying good. With boveda packets, you shouldn't have a problem. Anyway, when you get your hygrometer, you want to calibrate it. The packaging or instructions may say that it is calibrated at the factory and does not need to be tested. Ignore that. Get a bottle cap, fill it about 2/3 up with table salt, and a few drops of water. Put the cap in an airtight container (a zip lock bag will do) with the hygrometer. Wait a day, and see what the hygrometer says. If it says 75%, you're good. If it doesn't, adjust it until it does, and then leave it in the bag a few more hours to make sure it stays there. You will find that you may develop your own preference for the Relative Humidity (RH) of your cigars, but it your container is reading in the mid sixties to the low seventies, you're around where you want to be. Keep an eye on the temperature, too. I like to keep mine below 70 degrees F. If they get into the high seventies, your cigars may literally begin hatching beetles.

Now onto wooden humidors: these are much more of a pain in the ass than tupperdors, in terms of setting it up. As far as a specific model, there are a ton and it depends on too many things to specify from the information you gave. Personally, I'd recommend a humidor that can hold more cigars than you plan on needing. My first humidor holds fifty cigars. I now have another 25 count (although, that was free and I didn't need it until I figured "fuck it, might as well fill it"), a 100 count, and two tupperdors. So as far as picking one out, I'd recommend again going bigger than you think you need, make sure it is at least lined with spanish cedar, and just check reviews to see how it seals. Every humidor will have bad reviews because a lot of people don't know how to season them, so look for reviews from people who seem to know what they're doing. And I'd personally stay away from anything with a glass top, it's just another place it can lose a seal.

Speaking of seasoning, you have to season a wooden humidor, which means to sort of saturate the wood to the correct humidity level. If you don't, the wood will eat up the humidity being released by your humidifying thingamajig instead of it being all for your sticks. There's a couple ways to do this: you can get distilled water (or a premade solution of distilled water and propylene glycol, it really doesn't matter) and wipe the wood down with it, with a barely damp cloth or sponge. If you get the wood too wet, it will warp and the humidor won't seal. Then leave a bowl or shot glass filled with the distilled water in the humidor and let it sit a few days. Note that the water being distilled is not optional, do not use any other water, no tap, no spring water. Only distilled water. You want nothing in the humidor except spanish cedar, cigars, and moisture.

The easier way to season a humidor is to buy boveda seasoning packets. They regulate the environment in the humidor to 84%. Buy the same amount you'd need if they were regular bovedas, one per 25 cigar capacity. Put them in the humidor, close the humidor, come back 14 days later and take the packets out. Replace them with (I'd recommend) 69% packets. Put cigars in over the course of a few days (you don't want to add them all at once, it will swing RH levels).

I'd recommend this for a tupperdor, in the largest size:

I have this humidor, I like it:

I also have this smaller humidor which I'm still seasoning, but it seems to seal well enough:

Seasoning packets:

Packets to regulate RH (pick whatever RH you'd prefer, I like 69 for wood and 65 for tupperdor):

Distilled water/propylene glycol if you want to go that route:

Hygrometer (I like round ones because a lot of humidors will have a cutout for the shitty analog hygro they all come with and the round ones will fit there):

Someone let me know if I missed anything.

Edit: I didn't mention beads, the "soak this weird thing in distilled water" humidifier or kitty litter because I really don't think there's a good reason to steer someone towards them, but I really haven't ever used any of it so if someone wants to add something about those, please do.

u/BAWLS_Life · 17 pointsr/trees

Please tell me you are not smoking in your god damn dorm?

If you are; go the fuck outside, you are in fucking college. Toking in your dorm isn't cool or edgy. It is more disrespectful than anything, not everyone wants to smell it. Be the considerate toker.

If you are not; quit being a dirty ass toker smelling like weed everywhere you go. Again, be considerate and not a stereotype.

If it is simply because of the weed you have on you; get a tightvac from Amazon. Zero smell. I have that 6oz one. Holds my grinder, pipe, 1/8th and two lighters easy.

I bought a second one recently for edibles. No smell at all from either tightvac.

They have bigger and smaller ones for whatever your needs are.

Be smart! These flowers are not worth fucking up your life.

u/Calmiche · 17 pointsr/Frugal

If you are making your boyfriend lunch every day, you need to take a look at bento boxes! It's a Japanese lunchbox. Usually it has rice, fresh veggies, eggs, noodles, chicken, sausages, or anything else you can imagine! I've even made sushi, dumplings and soup. I haven't made any in a couple years, but I used to make them for my wife. They are very healthy and filling and don't need heating.

They make special boxes if you want. However, a couple Tupperware containers will work fine. If you really get into it, you might find a thermos lunch jar.

You can try this book from Amazon. It's a good intro from an American perspective.

u/mispelt · 14 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Excuse me from copying my reply from a previous BIFL, but I still feel strongly:


It's a bit complicated--follow me here. It's an insulated tube just like a thermos, with four round containers. I'll take you through them, from the bottom up.

Soup bowl: Actually a pretty nice soup bowl. It's got a lid that screws on, as well as a pressure-valve on the lid to prevent a vacuum forming as it cools (it's going to cool a little, no matter the insulation... thermodynamics still exists).

Rice bowl: It's a Japanese product, so there's a big compartment for rice. I never have a problem fitting a sandwich in here, if that's what you're in the mood for. You... you get used to sandwich-pucks eventually. Important thing here is that the lid on this bowl is thick and insulated, to help keep whatever's in here and the soup warm.

Veggie bowl: As I understand the typical Japanese meal (read: none), this is a bowl that's supposed to house some vegetables. You may have noticed that the bowl below this has a thick insulating layer. The way it's designed, this compartment and the one above it aren't insulated. It's actually pretty cool, when you think about it. I would usually use this for some roughage... dry cereal or something.

Tiny top bowl: This is it. Another non-insulated bowl. I'd usually put a cookie or two in here.

The whole thing is leak-proof, and it really does a fantastic job. Once you think about the two-hot-two-plain thing, you can put some fun meals together. The insulation works well--soup was always warm come lunchtime. And it's surprisingly big, too. You won't finish eating and want for any more. I didn't finish a lot of times, or I'd use one of the compartments just to hold a mid-day snack.

I know you might balk at the price, but if you think you might like something like I'm describing, I really can't endorse the product enough.

u/acciowhimsy · 14 pointsr/1200isplenty

These locking containers are stupid expensive; I delayed buying it for a couple of months because who really needs a locking container to not eat, just exercise your will power, right?

Well... I finally came to terms with the fact that I have no will power. I bought it and it's one of my favorite investments for my habits to date. I take out a few of what I want when I'm having my post-lunch sweet tooth and immediately lock it again for 24 hours so that I can't dig back into it minutes later (which I'm super guilty of doing).

It's not the biggest thing so you have to be picky with what you want to store in it and see how much you can fit, but ultimately, such a good purchase and highly recommend!

u/vfdsugarbowl · 14 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

PS, Not a dumb question! Screw you ^(/s), I'm gonna upvote!

Seriously though, I bought 3-compartment containers and the containers themselves freeze and refrigerate alright, though they get a bit brittle in the freezer. The downside here is that for one I feel pressured to cook more things to put in as sides, which complicates the process, even though nobody would really care if I put stew in all three compartments or something. Another downside is that different things microwave at different times, so one food may stay ice cold while the other is like hot hell fire.

I'm a bit envious of the folks that sprung for the single-compartment glass containers. You're a bit limited to stuff that can mix, but that's not actually all that limiting. Plus you maximize storage space (you loose a lot in between the compartments) and it all heats up at once.

I guess that's not really what you were asking, but oh well.

Would you consider a Tupperdor?

Sistema 1870: $20

  • Check locally, Target or Home Goods might have this for less.
  • Any of the Sistema containers are good options. They have clamps and a gasket in the lid to make sure the container stays airtight. Choose the one that fits your needs or a similar product. The 1870 will hold around 80 cigars.

    Boveda Packs: $17

  • Choose the pack that is right for you. Personally I like 65%.
  • If you go with a different size container, you might need to adjust how many packs you get. Remember to get the number of packs per the capacity of the container, not how many cigars are currently in the container. This page will help you determine how many packs you will need.

    Digital Hygrometer: HygroSet II - $14 or Caliber IV - $24

  • Any correctly callibrated digital hygrometer will work.
  • I have both of the above and they are good options

    Spanish Cedar Trays: $13

  • These are not needed, however work well for organization
  • Plastic trays will also work.
  • If you choose a different container, make sure the trays fit.

If you search 'container' on this subreddit, you will find several threads per week on the subject.

Most people use mismatched tupperware containers or purchase a set online.

I've personally been using these from Amazon for the last seven months.

u/dalek_999 · 12 pointsr/mealprep

Some tips/comments for anyone interested in doing something similar:

  • Make sure you have enough freezer space. Our fridge freezer can only hold about 30 boxes (and that's if it's crammed full), so we had to buy a small standalone freezer to hold the rest.

  • Pick meals that freeze & reheat well. I didn't do that the first time around, and had a couple of meals that were not so great. Pasta seems to freeze and reheat really well, for example. Cream or cheese based recipes...not so much. This time around I did some research online to get an idea of what works well - lots of people out there with tips and suggestions on freezer meals.

  • Next time we do this, we plan to split it out over two days, just so that it doesn't turn into a whole day effort. Day one: brownies, one meal, and any cutting/prep we can do. Second day will be the rest of the meals, and plating.

  • If you have a slowcooker, that's a good way to do one meal with minimal effort.

  • We basically used every pot, pan, and cooking utensil in the house.

  • The boxes we used are these ones. The lids are a bit of a pain to get on, but once on properly, they work fine.

  • We use a dry erase marker to write down the meal name and the date.

  • Cost: can't be exact, but this was roughly $150 at the store (with some non-prep groceries mixed in that total, so I'd estimate closer to $130 for just these meals). We're still filling in some blanks in our pantry, too, like sugar/flour, some spices, etc., so some of those are upfront costs that will apply to future recipes, rather than being a normal monthly cost. I'd estimate, though, that if this month and last month are typical, that it will cost roughly $100 - $130 a month to do 5 separate meals.

u/JohnnyBrillcream · 10 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I almost never go out for lunch, cost and tired of the options. And sorry for the wall of text in advance.

I cook my lunch meals on Sunday and use this type of container. Keeps the amount of food you can eat in check(1 to 2 cups), safe(BPA and stuff) and store well due to the stack ability. Dishwasher safe as well as durable. I actually got mine from a place called My Fit Foods and reused them, we're talking 5 years. That's durable.

As a chef I'm sure you can get flavors out of food it's a matter of making the food "edible" when re-heated. I eat a ton of chicken, it's cheap, versatile, healthy and truth be told I like it. I'm also not adverse to eating some of the same meals more than once a week. My meals consist of a protein, starch and veggies.

Most think chicken doesn't reheat well, it doesn't if it's you use standard grill to table methods. You're a chef, you can probably put out some damn tasty chicken in no time flat but heated the next day. Meh.

Here is a post I made a few days ago

The idea is to cook the chicken to a point where it's just cooked, maybe even short since it's still releasing juices. I think mine is probably a bit underdone, I don't know since I can't slice it. When you seal it in to cool all those juice are reabsorbed as well as putting the final touches on the cooking process. After reheating mine you still have juices flowing out of the chicken. Moist and tender.

I'll marinate or season 3 breasts three different ways and cook them. Once the process I describe is done I slice the chicken.

I will grill a batch of mixed veggies, asparagus or even some fresh corn. Just getting a bit of a char on it for flavor but still crunchy. When you reheat they'll get a bit more tender.

I will make one starch or a few. Some flavored rice, maybe even a processed box type (sorry!!). Roast some potatoes in a variety of seasons or make some pasta. these are all cooked through and tend to reheat well.

I portion my meals with a scale, I'm a little OCD that way. I'll put 10 grains of rice form one container to another so it they are all 12.7 ounces. What I have is 5 good meals, at times all the same, others maybe up to 3 varieties. Pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes and have a nice hot meal where the ingredients aren't overcooked.

Think the same way, season some protein for fajitas, cook and slice it, add some Mexican/Spanish rice with grilled veggies throw in a few tortillas and you got Cinco De Mayo in September!!

I pin the crap out of stuff in Pinterest, I use it exclusively for recipes. Really, meal planning is key.

With winter approaching, that is if you're in the Northern Hem, think soups and stews. Here is a freezing post I made. I'll make a batch of Gumbo, Chili or a Creole and freeze portions. If you follow this method no burn.

u/torpedodaisy · 10 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

A few bovida packs to control the humidity:

And any airtight tupperware container. Even one from the kitchen will do the trick. I like these:

For long term storage you may want a hygrometer to monitor the humidity:

And if you want to get fancy and organize with cedar trays, two of these work perfectly stacked in the container above.

Then store it in a cool part of your house.

u/Kristeninmyskin · 10 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

You (and OP) might benefit from a device that slowly warms up your food and keeps it warm all day. I like this Mini Crockpot Lunch Warmer for soups and stews ~$18-$24 (depending on color choice) and the Hot Logic Mini Portable Oven ~$40 ($30 during lightning sale or Prime day) for (frozen) raw or cooked chicken or fish, cooked beef, turkey meatballs, meatloaf, pasta and sauce, cooked rice, anything you want heated up without drying it out. Not great for crispy things like pizza, fried chicken or certain vegetables like broccoli that can't be slow cooked for hours without becoming pale and bitter. If you want to cook your food at lunch, the Dash Mini Griddle ~$10 can make grilled cheese sandwiches, quesadillas, toasted wraps, eggs, pancakes, and also has a grill version and waffle maker, all very small (cook one burger at a time).

I bought this lunch container for my daughter when she was in kindergarten and it's still going strong, and she loves it. It has two temperature-controlled containers and two "regular" containers, so I can give her hot and not-hot foods at the same time (e.g., soup and a sandwich). I can make her a hot lunch at 7:45am and by lunchtime it's still hot. As a bonus, the lid doubles as a bowl so I can give her foods to mix on the spot at lunch, which she adores.

My daughter is now 10 and in fifth grade and I've made virtually all of her school and preschool meals. I learned three distinct lessons in those years:

  1. Never put food or drink that she's never had before into her lunch.
  2. The ingredients of a food matters less than the presentation; it needs to be fun.
  3. Think about the effects of preparation and packaging.

    The first point is easy enough to understand so I won't dwell on that.

    The second point ties into your frustration with your sandwiches and wraps. Those sorts of foods aren't fun for kids. Know what is fun? Finger foods, foods that look gross, and foods that they can assemble themselves. Turkey and cheese sandwich? Boring. Turkey, cheese, and bread, cut up into cubes, maybe with a little cup of mayo on the side for dipping? Fun. Add a drop of green food coloring to the mayo to make it "gross" and even more fun. Pizza bagel: Half a plain bagel, a small cup of pasta sauce, a small cup of shredded cheese, and a small cup of pepperoni. Let your kid assemble his own pizza before eating it. Fun. Chicken noodle soup is boring; chicken alphabet soup is fun. You can give your kid make-it-yourself tacos in his lunchbox with a couple of small flour tortilla wraps (they sell 6" wraps at my supermarket) and little containers of lettuce, cheese, and cooked ground beef. So much fun.

    Preparation and packaging is also very important, especially when you're dealing with breaded foods (chicken nuggets or fish sticks, for example). Through trial and error I discovered that I can fold half a dozen chicken nuggets into a paper towel, put it in the "hot" part of my daughter's lunch box, and she'll still have reasonably crisp nuggets when it's lunch time. PB&J is usually a soggy mess for kids; the jelly soaks into the bread which in turn gets mushy and gets squished in the lunch bag. This can be fixed by spreading PB on BOTH pieces of bread, then covering and refrigerating overnight. In the morning, apply jelly, put the sandwich together, and put it into a sandwich container. The PB acts as a moisture barrier to the jelly, the refrgieration keeps the PB's oils from soaking through the bread, and the sandwich container keeps it from getting squished. Perfect PB&J at school, every time. If you aren't sure how something will hold up, try it yourself. Make yourself the lunch you'd give to your kid, prepping it at the same time you would normally prep lunch for him, storing it as you would for your kid, and then take it out and eat it when it's your kid's lunchtime and see how it holds up. Soggy bread? Crushed chips? Unappetizing appearance? Keep those things in mind because if YOU see it then your kid is going to see it too.

    I'll also throw out a bonus tip: Take extra condiment packets any time you eat out. Individual serving packets of ketchup, mayo, honey, jelly, etc go a LONG way to making your kid's meal better.

I use the IP (Instant Pot) brand, I have an older version of this one:

Works well and I've never had any problems using it. Depending on if you are making for yourself or multiple people will depend on how big of a pot or tub you will need. I actually have an old cooler that has a plastic insert that I've used when I am making more than a couple steaks at a time.

You can get pretty decent size tubs for not too much:

Wider is definitely better than taller when it comes to the tub you use depending on what you are cooking. Sous vide is also great for cooking egg bites and lots of other tasty things. I use a vacuum sealer but you can also just submerse a zip lock into water pushing all the air out and then seal it, that works fine too but won't help infuse any marinade or seasonings into the meat as much.

u/messijoez · 9 pointsr/Cooking

My wife got one of these thermoses. Comes with a folding spoon inside the cap and keeps whatever's inside hot for hours.

When we use it, we'll do things like curries (indian/thai/japanese) or soups, and then she'll bring a small tupperware of rice or some bread. Also good for soups, fried rice, porridge, really anything that needs to be kept hot, but it works best for saucy items. One thing I've wanted to try but haven't is something like a tupperware of cold pasta and cheese, and fill up this thing with hot spaghetti sauce and meatballs.

Another option for a "nicer" but less flexible system would be a bento box thermos like this one. What I don't like about these is that they're meant to be used in a specific way; i.e. a hot soup/sauce, a warm side (typically starch like pasta or rice), and a cold salad. It basically slowly leaks heat everywhere, and I prefer to have one really hot dish, and will just deal with having a cold starch if needed.

u/misanthropic_niceguy · 9 pointsr/Fitness

A thermos? Sorry, can't quite see why this isn't an option. Heat your food in the mwave at home, transfer to one of these ( and you're set.

u/neodymiumex · 9 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I've been cooking chicken yellow curry a lot lately:

  • 1 lb chicken thighs cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 zucchini squash cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into bite size pieces
  • 1-2 carrots cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 bottle of Trader Joe's yellow curry sauce
  • 3 cups of uncooked white rice
  • a bit of oil to saute it all in

    I throw the rice into the rice cooker. While that's cooking I cut up all the ingredients and then heat some oil over medium in a large skillet and throw the carrots in. After about 5 minutes I add the chicken, after a few more minutes I add the bell pepper and zucchini, after a few minutes more I add the sauce to simmer for a few minutes and then portion it all out into 4 meals over the rice. You can make this cheaper by making your own yellow curry but honestly it doesn't feel that much cheaper than buying the bottle at TJs and it dirties another pan so I don't typically bother. You can change this up pretty dramatically by just changing the sauce. Trader Joe's has a couple of different ones that are pretty good, Kroger has this one which is good:

    Burrito bowl recipe that I make every once and a while:

  • 1 pound chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 diced yellow onion
  • 1 green bell pepper cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 diced jalapeno pepper
  • 1 cup of uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 14.5 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 15oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • ~2 cups of low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese (I generally use mexican blend)
  • salt and pepper
  • oil to saute in

    Saute the onion in the oil until soft, then add the peppers. After a few minutes add the chicken along with salt and pepper. After a few minutes add the rice, tomatoes, beans, and spices. Mix it up and then add the chicken stock (I normally add slightly less than 2 cups, if the dish looks too dry near the end you can always add more). Bring it to a simmer, then cover the pan and reduce the heat to low. Simmer until the rice is done, which typically takes 30-35 minutes. When it's done stir in the cheese.

    I store my meals in these: and then reheat it at the office in the microwave.

The containers are reusable ones I bought off of Amazon that are marketed specifically for meal prep. They're kind of like the containers you would get a Chinese food entree in. I expect these to keep for about a week and a half or so, and I will be reheating in the microwave.

u/---YNWA--- · 9 pointsr/cigars

Hey! I'll offer up some noob advice since I just started a couple months ago myself and had these same questions. Firstly, welcome to the sub and to the cigar world in general. Hopefully you'll really enjoy your first few smokes and become a BOTL (brother of the leaf)! So here's the good news - a "starter kit" like you are asking about is actually so good that it can be a "lifetime kit." Many people here who have been in to cigars for many years still use this system. A humidor is very nice, but the cheaper ones aren't that great, and even the more expensive ones are truly not necessary. You can keep cigars in just as good condition in the setup I'm about to tell you as any that are kept in expensive humidors, generally. So what you want is nicknamed a tupperdor. Just like it sounds, it's tupperware made to be a humidor. The key is that it has to be airtight. So your basic glad snap lid things aren't usually good enough, but the ones that are airtight are still cheap, they just have snap tight latches and usually a rubber seal around the lip. This one is what I am currently using. Actually many people here use it as well. If you scroll down on that page you will see the "other people bought" suggestions are for a Spanish cedar cigar tray and a digital hygrometer, so you can see many people buy these for this purpose. [This is another option as well.] ( This one has the cedar lining in it already but holds fewer cigars and displays differently,
your call. Then you will need a humidity pack like this one from Boveda. They are cheap and this size works for up to 25 cigars I think. Anyway, you simply put it inside the tupperdor with your cigars and close the lid, that's it! The Boveda packs will maintain the humidity int he box at 69%. There are other levels you can get like 72%, and that's more of a personal preference I think. I found that 69% was very common so I went with that and it's been working well for me so far. Also, you don't actually NEED the cedar tray, but it does have some benefits for long term storage of cigars. I actually grabbed some thin Spanish cedar sheets out of a used cigar box and laid them on the bottom of my box for now. Works fine. As for the hygrometer, it's also not required for your needs. I still don't have one. The Boveda packs do their job very reliably. So there you have it, an inexpensive and very reliable way to store cigars for the short term while you test out the cigar world, and it will work long term if you like it and decide to keep smoking. Certainly others with more experience than me will chime in here if I made a mistake or three, this sub community is pretty great. Anyway, enjoy and if you have more questions fire away!

u/ClimbinHigh · 9 pointsr/mflb

X-post from r/trees. This was in the comments there but I'll post it here too: Here's a link to a Dropbox with the schematic. It was made in Autodesk Inventor and I'm not sure if any other 3D CAD program can run it. The overall diameter of the part is slightly bigger than the tube it went in (link to Amazon), so it required some sanding and rolling on a hot skillet to mold it perfectly. Also, it took a while to cut off the base that the printer puts down before it actually prints the part. It took 2 hours to print and about 4 hours of refining afterwards to get it perfect.

If you find that you eat the whole pack of something, i.e. multipacks of candy bars, this can be an amazing training device:

You can lock it for any period of time that you choose, from one minute to 30 days. There is literally no way to open it, other than to break it, once the timer is set.

It makes discipline easy. Take a portion out, lock the rest away for 24hrs. It literally removes the ability to be tempted.

u/Falschnachricht · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

"Is it worth it?" is always such a personal question, so I'm sorry if my answer isn't as decisive as you're looking for. I'll try to tailor my response to your budget concern.

Short answer: plastic containers will get the job done cheaper than glass in the short-term.

Your first purchase of plastic containers will be available for much cheaper than glass (e.g. [$11 for 7 containers] ( vs $5/pc for glass. You'll also be able to get much more variety and specialization for your dollar in plastic containers: rectangular, round, multi-compartment, etc. That means you'll have more options when planning your food, which should help vary your diet while still eating cheap.

You get what you pay for, however, and this is where the debate of plastic vs glass really turns into an investment in my opinion. Plastic will eventually scratch, retain odors, stain, warp, leak, and some people still have concerns about negative health impacts from ingesting plastics. Anecdotally, most people I know cycle through their plastic containers every six months

So now for your second purchase of meal prep containers, you'll either spend another $11 on plastic containers, or you'll look at glass. It's heavier, when it breaks it shatters, and it's much more expensive per piece. BUT, take care of it and it'll last much longer. The grommet will seal much better than plastic containers. You're no longer limited to cold foods and microwave heating because they're also oven-safe. I now use the IKEA glassware linked above and the glass doesn't have any indications of damage. The lid may wear out over time, but two years in mine are still going strong!

Call it $20 on plastic containers every year, or $30 up front that may need lid replacements every few years - your budget should make this decision for you.

u/vector78 · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

u/Mthecrouton · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

5-6 meals is a whole lot. What I might do is pick a protein like chicken and vary the spices to make different kinds of chicken. Like maybe greek chicken then chicken fajitas, then chicken marinated in hot wing sauce, chicken in a mustard marinade. That to me might be easier then mixing up proteins. Thats me however. You might also try cooking a few nights a week different dishes and make a lot then freeze left overs. I've done that before, that gives me some variety for dinner and lunch without doing all the cooking in one day. Its failed me before though because I'll get home and be like nah I don't feel like cooking then eating all my lunch leftovers for dinner. As for the veggies, they make different frozen mixes so that would be easy to mix up. Green beans, or broccoli and cauliflower, or just broccoli, squash and zucchini. Me personally I don't add extra carbs like rice unless it goes with meal because honestly I don't like rice that much. l find I can hit my carb content with fruits and vegetables alone and maybe some oatmeal. Unless rice goes with the dish then I'll eat it. But it would be easy enough to cook a bunch of rice and divvy it up. You might also try a crock pot to make one type of meal in it while you make others on the stove. I think your over reaching with 5-6, I'd try 3. If you alternate them its really not bad.

As for how long they last frozen, a long time. In the fridge, a few days. Containers, take your pick, some people like these:

my brother uses the rubbermaid containers with the heavy duty plastic, I like to use pyrex rectangle glass ones because I think they are easier to clean but thats me and Pyrex is way more expensive.

u/RollCakeTroll · 7 pointsr/cigars

Hey there, welcome!

I do want to warn you, there are a lot of Cuban Cigar (CC) fakes out there. Likely if you bought from a shop and they aren't Cohibas, you're probably fine, but you may want to check out (looks like their standard map is down however) and see if the map isn't there.

That said, CCs aren't terribly hard to get in the US and there's a few sites that ship them by the box to the states. We have regular box splits on here (one person buys a box and ships it out at cost to other people in smaller batches, say 5 cigars each), and there's plenty of folks on /r/CigarMarket that will provide you some CCs if you search, or you can check out /r/cubancigars too. Funny enough they're usually much cheaper than what you paid in Canada because basically no taxes.

Honestly, I don't think there is much "working up" needed to smoke a CC. They're relatively mild compared to Dominican or Nicaraguan tobacco (in the grand scheme of things... of course there's bold Cuban and mild Dominican). Now, if we were talking about a Padron or a La Flor Dominicana, then yes, I'd say you'd need to smoke for a few months before you can be sure that the nicotine won't make you literally sick (rare but it can happen). Cubans? Nah, totally great for a newbie to smoke.

Also if you're new to cigars, don't let those things sit out. Get yourself a tupperware container and a boveda pack: and

If you don't store the cigars in an airtight container with humidification, they'll dry out and not be the tasty smokes you were expecting.

Now, if you do want to keep your first CCs as a special smoke, I totally understand. Do keep them humidified though. Without humidification they will wither and eventually the oils will dry out and they won't be recoverable at that point (years without humidification but that isn't out of the question when you buy them and save them) But overall, they're not hard to get, smoke great, and are totally fine for a beginner to smoke. I say light 'em up! You can replace CCs easily enough.

I'd suggest getting a ~12qt/L plastic container too (cambro or rubbermaid ) with a lid. Cut a hole in the lid to size for the unit, the cover reduces evaporation (and reduces energy use somewhat). The 12L size is perfect for doing many things up to small roasts or a pork belly or a chicken.

It's nice if the container is foodsafe, but it's not the end of the world if not. You're cooking in bags anyway. Transparent is really nice though, it allows you to see what's in the unit easily.

u/adm_halsey · 6 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Maybe consider using a thermos -- something like this. Crockpot stuff. Beef Stew.

u/KestrelLowing · 6 pointsr/LifeProTips

Here are some of my staples:

  • Get a thermos. This one in particular is awesome - I've never had it leak, and it keeps food warm for ~5 hours (more if it's mostly liquid). I'll take half a can of soup (usually something like chunky campbells) and then in a tupperware container I'll also take some crackers, or if I've got it a roll of bread.
  • When I'm feeling lazy, I just take a small jar of peanut butter and tupperware of ritz crackers
  • Summer sausage, cheese, and crackers. When you get summer sausage, slice it up, slice up some cheese, put them in separate baggies or tupperware, throw a blue ice into your lunchbag (lunchbags are definitely needed for just about everything)
  • Salad. I have one of these containers that helps me get the correct portions for salad, and also has a handy little dressing container as well as a blue ice. It's nice and compact. All I do it get one of those premade lettuce mixes, usually throw in some spinach as well, and then in the top portion, I put some croutons (or something crunchy) and either cut up fruit (apples, strawberries) or cooked chicken (usually from a rotisserie chicken).
  • Apples are fantastic, as are bananas
  • I'd suggest getting some twist top tupperware if you want to bring more liquidy things (cut up watermelon springs to mind). I've found that the twist top tends to do better than the standard snap on.
u/BitterGrace · 6 pointsr/ketorecipes

This thermos is seriously fantastic. It keeps food warm by 1PM for me easily (I leave for school at six). So, you may want to give one a whirl.

With a cooking investment:

  • Low carb chili - can also toss in a can of black soybeans if you eat soy
  • Low carb kielbasa soup
  • Shredded chicken thighs and a veg (garlic zucchini, sauteed eggplant, bacon-sauteed green beans, etc).
  • Muffin-sized meatloaf!
  • Muffin-sized quiches
  • I also make meatballs and eat them on salad. Yes - I am a weirdo, but it's good.

    No cooking keto bento boxes! I do this a couple times a week. You can include:

  • Boiled eggs
  • Dark leafy greens
  • sugar-free pickles
  • pepperoni
  • cheese chunks
  • olives
  • nuts
  • pickled veggies
  • rolled up turkey slices (I roast a turkey breast, these aren't from the deli)
  • chicken/tuna/egg salad
  • cottage cheese and fresh strawberries
  • a few pork rinds or nut crackers
  • a piece or two of dark chocolate, etc.
  • deviled eggs
  • bacon-wrapped cantaloupe: wrap a chunk or two in bacon for dessert - delish!

    The possibilities here are endless. Another easier option is to simply cook an extra portion during dinner and just pack it the next day.

    Edit: the formatting was beaten until its morale improved.
u/Cogs76 · 6 pointsr/cigars

You can also try putting some distilled water around the lip of the lid to see if that helps. It will swell up some and may seal better. It could just be leaky and letting your RH out. 63% is still a good RH to store them at. A lot here do 62-65%.

Did you check the hygrometer is a sealed bag with a boveda to be sure its reading right? It may need calibrated. Put it in with 72% pack and be sure it read right around 72% after 24 hrs.

A sealed Tupperware may work better. This is a popular choice.

Here's my advice since I literally just started a few weeks ago. This is exactly what I wished I knew before I spent money on random cigars from various sites.

  1. Depending on how many sticks you plan on getting at a time, invest in a tuppedor. Don't waste your time with a wooden humidor (at least right now). I picked up these from amazon and all my ~40-50 sticks sit comfortably in there.
  • Plastic "humidor"
  • Hygrometer
  • Boveda Packs, although I might lean towards the 65% next time. Also, you only need 1 pack in a tuppedor, 2 is overkill. They can also be recharged, so don't throw them away when they dry out.

  1. If you have a nice brick and mortar tobacco store (not a hole in the wall place that caters only to e-cigs and accessories) near you, visit them and ask questions. If they are worth their salt, they should be fairly knowledgeable about cigars. They will point you in the right direction. I stupidly didn't do this and just kind of bought random shit online and have had mixed results with what I bought. The stuff I've bought at the store has been much, much fresher too. However, you will be spending 30-40% above what you'll pay online. I found it worth it for how much time and effort the staff spent helping me, but it is quite a bit more expensive.

  2. If that's not an option, look for sampler packs online. You can find cheap options that include a bunch of different sticks so you can sample a variety. I would suggest looking at smallbatch mixes find a price you're comfortable with spending (30 to 40 should be plenty, maybe buy 2 of the $30 to $40 packs so you end with ~10 cigars) and in the comment section of your order mention that you're brand new to cigars. He should be able to make an excellent mix for a new smoker. Use code "rcigars" for 10% off (without the "", not sure if valid for the mix).

  3. Also, if you don't come from a background of smoking cigarettes, stick with the mild to medium strength cigars. I smoked a few full strength ones from the samplers I got and they kicked my ass. It was unpleasant to say the least. If you DO plan on smoking a full strength cigar, smoke on a full stomach and drink something sweet with it. Sweet tea or a pop of some sort works well to quell the nicotine content.

  4. Accessories. All you really need is a decent cutter and a torch lighter and you're all set.
  • A cutter
  • A butane lighter
  • Fuel [Note, you can use cheaper fuel, but your lighter may get clogged with shitty zippo butane fuel.]
  • Some sort of ashtray. You don't realize how nice it is to have one until you don't have one and have no place to rest your cigar.

  1. If you do find a cigar you enjoy, try buying a 5 pack of it. Let it rest for a week or so and try them out over the course of a month or several months and see if you enjoy them as much as you did the first time. See if they get better with age. I have far too many 1 offs that I enjoyed, but would I still enjoy them a month from now? 2 months from now?

  2. Oh, and generally stay away from infused cigars. They use shittier tobacco since they can mask it with flavors. The girlfriend still likes these, but I think she's starting to come around to a natural sweetness/chocolate taste instead of an artificially infused one. Plus they stink up your humidor and can potentially ruin the taste of your other cigars in them if they are in close contact.

  3. Online sites that I've enjoyed purchasing from and ship quickly:
  1. Look up retrohaling. You'll taste more of your cigar this way. Warning, it does burn the hell out of your nose the first handful of times you do it. Start with a mild cigar instead of a full strength one like I stupidly decided to do. :P

    Hopefully this helps.

Tupperware and trays, you can also get bovedas from Amazon or most places that sell cigars.

The pupperdor is a gofund business with the following timeline "As we start to approach our fixed goal - production will begin!" They are currently at 3.6% so would be faster to buy your own parts.

I’ve heard a lot of flight attendants swear by this HotLogic Mini Portable Oven - Food Warmer and Heater - Lunch Box for Office, Travel, Potlucks, and Home Kitchen

It’s basically a mini oven that you can use to heat up prepared meals, frozen dinners, and things like that.

u/Jeanne23x · 6 pointsr/orangetheory


I'm a frequent traveler and have to constantly balance travel and my diet.

There's one item I pack sometimes, which is this: I buy groceries if I have a small fridge and heat up healthy, frozen meals in it. If I don't have a small fridge, I'll buy on my way home.

In my meetings, I'm expected to eat and drink with clients. I tell them to feel free to order whatever they like, but I'm ordering a light appetizer because "I got drinks and apps" earlier. I'll try to order something like tuna tartare, and other things that I know definitely can't have too many calories added to them in the kitchen.

I also stopped drinking or eating anything because it is free and I've asked myself--do I actually enjoy this? I've cut out drinking sub-par wine in flight (just because the flight attendant gave it to me). I've increased how much sparkling flavored water I drink when traveling because it feels like I'm drinking something.

If you need to bounce ideas off of someone, feel free to message me! I have to be very careful because I have hashimotos and I'm short, so I don't get very many calories for my travels.

u/2comment · 5 pointsr/PlantBasedDiet

I used to puncture (not open) cans of veggies, like corn, drain 1/3 the liquid, and heat them in the engine compartment of my car while driving. Think I moved beyond that.

Hard pretzels are consistently the one snack that's with low/no oil. Still would check ingredients. Not quite WFPB, but widespread, vegan and low fat. Still, I find snacks like these don't give good satiety and I keep reaching for them. Easy energy.

Taco Bell is vegan with modifications. Enough oil in it though but food on the go. The two easiest and cheapest things to order is thus:

  • Bean Burrito. Make it fresco (means replace dairy/cheese with pico de gallo).

  • Crunchy or Soft Taco. Make it fresco. Remove Beef. Add black beans.

    Grande meals composed of this are huge and cheap. Check your orders before leaving. Some locations really are bad at screwing it up.

    Some equipment I recommend in your situation:

  • A good chef's knife for chopping and prep work and a short knife (2-3") for peeling and other work.

  • a foldable mat to do chopping on. These are cheap and much easier to clean and portable than wooden blocks.

  • A collapsible silicon colander. Portable. To clean greens. I don't use a salad spinner much anymore, takes up a lot of room and I don't want my greens that dry.

  • Like before, a collapsible silicon bowl for salads and other prep plus to microwave and eat direct from. Easier than constantly tossing paper plates.

  • small glass jar (from marmalade or anything used) to mix dressing with.

    For much of your cooking, a microwave will actually be enough. Oatmeal, potatoes, rice, beans. Sure spaghetti and the rest will work too with practice.

    Panfrying and searing isn't a major requirement in the WFPB kitchen and much could also be done in a conventional oven. You can get a toaster-oven for around $50 if you stay in the same room consistently although I don't think it's necessary. You can get yourself an countertop cooktop for $50-100, but the room will unlikely have ventilation or an outdoor, so this or toasteroven can backfire if smoke occurs.

    There is one product I don't necessarily recommend for the hotel with the microwave, but if you are out on the road with a car a lot, and that's a HotLogic Mini Oven:



    Consider this not for cooking but for reheating. It's a glorified hot plate that won't burn anything. I recommend the 12v with an good inverter in the car over a 12v version for the simple reason that you can use it in hotel rooms without modification. If you buy a 12v version and buy an adapter for outlets, you are much more likely to forget the adapter in hotel rooms.

    If it's in the running due to extra people, 2 mini size is better than one family size imo.

    The pyrex 6 cup they sometimes bundle with it is not spillproof so it was useless for soups and other wet stuff, but I got a 46 or 54oz glass glasslock-style spill-proof container at a local Marshalls that was perfect.

    There is also those Indian Heat n Eat meals. Kohinoor and the like. Many have butter but there were some vegan varieties.

    Also, up raw food eating. Fruits, salads, etc.
u/PoledraDog · 5 pointsr/loseit

Not an answer to your question, but I think this might help. I love warm foods and find that I do better sticking to my eating plan if I can have them for lunch. I'm also not a big fan of how some foods end up when heated in the microwave. So I bought one of these personal "ovens" for my desk along with some glass pyrex containers (I like this size ,and it has been a game changer for me. I put my lunch in around 10-10:30 and it's ready by noon. It's a bit on the pricey side, but to me the benefit has been well worth it. Supposedly the voltage is low enough that it is safe to use in a cubicle setting.

One thing I don't like is there's no switch on the thing, so I recommend supplementing with a switch of some sort, but that's not essential.

No, that insulated bag is a HotLogic Mini. It's basically a low power hot plate that heats up to about 200 degrees and warms up your food. It only uses about 45 watts so you can use it in a vehicle with an inverter. I put the meat in for about an hour and the tortillas in for 20 minutes.

That helps whenever I want/need to use my Anova.

u/TheOneGuyFromNowhere · 5 pointsr/cigars

I haven't purchased a lot from TNT, but I think you'd probably be better served buying some name brand sticks you'll be able to get in the future. TNT isn't really well known for high quality cigars. If it's between those two options, definitely grab some sticks from Shad. Lots of other good places as well, with name brand sticks.

As for the Humidor, honestly, wood Humidors are more trouble than theyre worth. Grab a gasketed Tupperware like this as well as some 65% Boveda packs and you'll be in great shape. These will keep your cigars in perfect shape, with the least amount of maintenance.

u/roland00 · 5 pointsr/ADHD

> I'm afraid to talk to my neurologist about the addiction, because I don't know what her reaction would be.

I am not trying to be critical here, but think about these words if you heard them from someone's elses mouth and not yours. You can't control your behavior but you are not willing to talk about your behavior with an expert, who has your best interests at heart, for you are afraid of what would happen. You can't handle it by yourself by your own admission, but you are afraid of getting possible help. You need to get help from someone and stop trying to do this on your own. This doctor is probably one of the best people in your life to help you get help.

Please be willing to talk this over with your doctor. There are stimulant formulations that are harder to abuse (such as the vyvanse you are currently on, but there are other options such as daytrana). Furthermore there are things you can do to make sure you don't abuse your medication. Get one of these amazon link. Put your medication in there, and you can't open it until the timer goes off. If you still don't trust yourself to take 1 and only 1 when the timer goes off you can give your medication to someone else and they will keep you on a schedule.



This is simplifying the science, but Strattera and the Stimulants work differently. Strattera blocks the NET transporter, NET is called the Norepinephrine Reuptake Transporter but it does not just reuptake Norepinephrine but also other neurotransmitters such as Dopamine. In some parts of the brain Dopamine is reuptaked by the DAT transporter, the Dopamine Reuptake Transporter, and in other parts of the brain NET is used to reuptake dopamine.

Look at this picture from wikipedia This is a picture of the 2 places Dopamine Start and the 4 places Dopamine ends up at.

Stimulants increase the dopamine level in all 4 places. The nucleus accumbens is your reward center, and the striatum is the place where you have the highest cluster of dopamine receptors and reuptake transporters.


Strattera increases norepinephrine in a lot of places, but it only increases dopamine in the frontal lobe. Why does it only increase dopamine in the frontal lobe? Because in this part of the brain you use the NET transporter to reuptake dopamine. This dopamine pathway in the frontal lobe is called the mesocortical pathway.

Thus switching to strattera will allow you to get the benefits of ADHD treatment with the frontal lobe while allowing the other parts of your brain to decrease with dopamine tolerance.

Yes you can keep yourself on the wellbutrin combine with strattera if you need to. Yes you can mix strattera with stimulants but your doctor will be careful about doing this for the more meds you mix the more interactions you will have. Your neurologist though will know all this.


Another option your neurologist may want to do is try other ADHD drugs such as Intuniv or the Wakeful Agents. Intuniv works completely different than Strattera and the Stimulants. It will help your ADHD and it can be combine with other medicines.

The Wakeful Agents such as Modafinil do have addictive potential. We do not know enough to say it is more or less addictive than the stimulants, but most likely it is less addictive. The wakeful agents may be another ADHD treatment you want to pursue.

Good Luck but please talk to your doctor.

Ooooh! /u/Kytoaster!!! I found this kitchen safe on Amazon awhile ago! It's kind of pricey, but you can put in the foods you eat (like peanut butter, I get it, I will often indulge on 2-3 spoonfuls of peanut butter straight out of the jar lol) while you're sleep walking before bed, and then set the time for when you wake up. That way there is no way your sleepwalking self can get into the peanut butter because it's all based on time, there's no key involved!

Sup sup.

I'm a senior in college now, about to graduate this May. I'm an engineering major. I've got a few extra-curriculars and yada yada. Point is, I don't have much time. I started doing meal prep back in sophomore year.

So here's whatcha do:

  1. Let's say you eat four times a day, aye? pick up two sets of these guys
  2. Buy a slow cooker. Doesn't matter which one. I just picked up an 8qt. slow cooker for about $30
  3. Buy a rice cooker
  4. Have 2-3 baking sheets.
  5. find an oven

    That's all the equipment you really need.

    At 5'9" I'm going to assume you're going to eat around 2500-3000 calories a day to clean bulk. I could be wrong. Doesn't really matter.

    My favorite meal prep meal is a burrito bowl. Why?

  • easy as hell to mass produce
  • low fat
  • can easily tweak parameters to make it high or low cal
  • high protein
  • keeps well

    Here's how I make mine per-bowl (I love bullet-points. Sue me):

  • 8 oz. chicken breast (baked, cooked on stove, whatever)
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/2 cup black beanz
  • hot sauce (franks is GOAT)
  • onion
  • jalapeno
  • cilantro
  • lime
  • cheese

    That will level out to about 1,200 calories. 1,400 if you use dark(er) meat.

    Alan Thrall has a pretty good episode on meal prep here.

    besides that, you've got /r/MealPrepSunday for plenty more info.

    Oh, and pick up an insulated lunch box or cooler to carry around or keep in your car.

Cheap tips...

Rice Cooker, Slow cooker, Food Processor, Blender.

Zojirushi Rice Cookers are consistent and long lasting - I had one of these for 12 years, and it always got the job done right. When I moved in with my wife, she had a rice cooker that was old, but still worked (another Zojirushi). We recently splurged and got a really high end one. It's AMAZING, 10-15 minute perfectly cooked rice.

Cuckoo CRP-HV0667F IH Pressure Rice Cooker - For reference.


Get the simplest cheapest crock-pot - Less things to go wrong when it's as simple as this.

Get a cheap food processor

Get a decent blender - Don't go too cheap on blenders, you really get what you pay for in a quality blender. Blenders and mixers are the two things KitchenAid does best.

Now... The reason why I said get cheap stuff? Because you said you know nothing about cooking, and you might destroy a nice piece of equipment in your ignorance. It's bound to happen. Since you are going to be living on your own, if family gives you free stuff, don't feel bad about getting rid of it if the equipment sucks. They didn't want it anyways. Good tools? And you'll do a good job.

Watch this for other equipment... - Gordon Ramsay may be a celebrity, but his kitchen knowledge is definitely high-end.

Personally don't skimp on the saucepans, frying pan, and the knife (honestly for 99% of jobs you just want a really good chef's knife, other than a pairing knife can do most everything). They will make your life easier if you have quality equipment. I disagree with him about the cutting board for 2 reasons (10 years in restaurants in the past here)... One, you are a beginner and might ruin a wood board. Two, wood boards can accumulate bacteria from meats if not taken care of properly. I advise this one...

OXO Grips Utility Cutting Board - Great video showing you some good techniques in cooking. - Another video along the same vein, great techniques for cooking.

As others have said Budgetbytes is great.

Raw beans and raw rice are always going to be significantly cheaper than buying pre-made/pre-cooked. Use a slow cooker to cook beans overnight. Use google for a recipe.

Chicken skin-on, bone-in is always going to be significantly cheaper than not. Breast is usually drier/tougher but lower calorie per oz. Thighs are juicier/softer, but higher calorie per oz. Remove the skin if you want to be more calorie efficient. Keep the skin on for flavor. Personally? I always leave skin on, remove the bone (but use it for cooking to extract the flavors), and I always use a chicken thigh. Personal preference. A cool tip is to remove the skin, coat in olive oil, and fry by itself. Try that out, see if you like it. Fry till like crispy bacon. If you don't use the skin in cooking, you can use it like this as a snack later.

Seasoning things is really important. Don't over-season, less is more. Because you can always add more seasoning later. When I make chicken, I always put a pinch of salt on each side, grind some pepper (use a pepper grinder, it's always superior to that pre-ground pepper crap), slap that into it. Olive oil, don't skimp out on this either. Get stuff actually from Italy, larger bottles are usually a better deal. Chicken with salt, pepper, olive oil is simple and tasty.

Get some kinda meal prep containers... - These should work great. I like having a separation point in the container.

Some simple recipes I like... - Anything here. - Again, using the search function at budgetbytes is huge.

One thing that helps is to develop your palate. If you will be doing okay for money, the occasional outing to a restaurant to try something new can be really beneficial. When you eat food out, imagine what possible technique they could have used to achieve a certain texture or taste.

I'm just rambling, but hopefully this will help a little.

As someone who plays on an ION drumpad in a 3rd floor apartment, I know your pain. These are my 3 fixes.

  1. Put a ton of non slip cabinet liner under it. Fold it over like 5 times so it's nice and thick. It stops it from moving AND dampens some of the noise.

  2. Get some thick foam, or an old school pencil eraser. Open up your kick pedal, remove that small twangy metal piece that hits the little sensor. Use gorilla glue to glue your foam/eraser into place. Make sure not to put it too high or too low, you want to be able to hit the sensor, but you also don't want to break it off.

  3. Mesh Heads. Replace those crappy decaying rubber pads with some mesh heads. You'll never be happier. They're a good 50% more quiet, and they feel great to play on.

If you ABSOLUTELY need the keys - you could smash it - but if you do, you're out $50. It's not so much that you'll be destitute, but it's enough to be a pretty big deterrent.

If I were in your situation, I would buy these three items: stainless steel electric tea kettle, the Wonderbag, and the Hotlogic mini portable oven.

The teapot will heat to boiling in less than three minutes, and can be plugged in at a gas station bathroom, while you're using the facilities. It will be ready before you're done washing your hands.

The Wonderbag is used all over the developing world because it cooks food without a continuous heat source, allowing families to save valuable firewood for other purposes. There is a great deal of information about the Wonderbag on the internet, including a cookbook!

The HotLogic bag is a small portable cooker that cooks without odor, allowing you to use it in public unobtrusively. Lots of YouTube videos about ways to use it.

I would NOT buy an Instapot, as others have recommended because they need a great deal of continuous electricity to function, and they produce a great deal of cooking odors and steam, which are challenging to manage in a small space, or if trying to boondock cook in public.

Best of luck to you!

I love my Zojirushi Mr. Bento

The outer container is a vacuum bottle so if you fill it with boiling water and let it sit for 5 mins, then dump out the water and put in your containers of hot food, they will stay hot well past lunch time.

u/1concatenate2 · 4 pointsr/mealprep

Check out these things. They work quite well at keeping food hot/warm. Takes an extra 10 min in the morning to warm everything up, but last for awhile and you can portion things out for easy calorie count.

u/HappyPrimes · 4 pointsr/Bento

A Zojirushi sounds like it might be a good fit. I have this system and I am very happy with it and it's quality. The Ms. Bento is the smaller version of the zojirushi.

u/shiftypoo269 · 4 pointsr/knifeclub

Carbide sharpeners chew up and spit out edges. They peel off steel and leave behind a jagedy burred up edge. I'd suggest looking into getting a Lansky Turn box. They are between $16 and $20 dollars, and they will get your knife sharp if you go through the proper motions. Which are like 20 strokes per side (5 strokes then switch sides and repeat) (depends on were the edge is at in wear) on each of the rods then five alternating strokes extremely lightly. Most knives you just have to hold vertical, and if the edge angle is too wide you tilt it a bit until the stones are hitting the edge. You can tell this by marking the edge with a sharpie. The stone will rub of the sharpie where it is contacting the bevel.

The Lansky Turnbox is essentially a poor man's Spyderco Sharpmaker and both systems are literally idiot proof. They will get you a hair popping edge that will make factory edges feel dull in comparison.

You'll probably be able to find a Lansky Turn box at a local sporting goods store. Here is a link for it on Amazon so you know what you are looking for.

u/AlGeee · 4 pointsr/knives

Practice first with a Lansky Turn Box. In fact, you may not need anything else, unless you need a sharpening angle that's different. I use mine to keep my knives shaving sharp.

u/narcolepticdoc · 4 pointsr/knives

Oh, it s a good steel. It used to be the sort of steel you only saw in higher end knives, it’s trickled down a lot over the years so now it’s very common. It’s a very definite step up from the lower end knife steels. I agree with the other posters that it’s really not that hard to sharpen or take care of. A simple ceramic rod sharpener like the Spyderco sharpener or really any of the type would be more that enough to start with being that this is your first decent knife.

Lansky rod sharpener

This is the first think that looked decent on Amazon when I sorted by price low to high. Stay away from the pull through sharpeners especially any that use carbide.

u/MIDNIGHTZOMBIE · 4 pointsr/knives

I like this sharpener. It's easy to use and inexpensive. Sharpening stones are great too but they really do take a lot of practice to get a good edge. Maintaining the proper angle is crucial.

Just focus on one technique and style of sharpener and practice a lot. Keep at it and you will see success!

u/ggabriele3 · 4 pointsr/Massdrop
u/aahrg · 4 pointsr/sousvide

It's rated for 15-19 quarts, but you can stretch it a bit by using a better container. I think your 40 quart is probably a bit too big, especially since it's cheap and won't have super good thermal insulation.

I'm not sure how well your brick idea will work. I think you'd probably have to deal with huge preheating times as the anova slowly brings the bricks up to temp. You should probably be fine once it's up to temp though.

Coleman makes a 25 quart "party stacker" cooler that lots of people tend to like. The lid is fully removable so you can make the same modifications as you had planned with your big cooler.

There's also some smaller rubbermaid plastic tubs that people like to use. You can cover it with plastic wrap to stop evaporation if you want.

Where do you buy your green beans from? I know Sweet Maria’s has bags with the one way valve in half and full pound size bags. They also offer a container with the valve too. This is assuming you need the beans to still off gas.

Get a wide thermos, there are several designed as bowls. I don't know about their bifl, quality. But so long as you don't dent it or put it in the dishwasher, the vacuum should hold.

u/ChopNC93 · 4 pointsr/cigars

To that point, make sure the container has an actual seal in the lid and isn't just a snap on.

I use a Sistema container, similar to this:

u/lisnotliz · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I recommend this all the time:

Keeps hot things hot or cold things cold, has 4 separate containers inside so you can have a main and a few sides and they won't all run together. It's pricey, for a glorified lunch box, but I love mine and it's been totally worth it for me.

u/auf_der_autobahn · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

If you can fit it in another bag that you're already carrying, that's probably both the handiest and most stylish option.

Otherwise, you just have to find the least bad-looking lunchbox you can. I used to use the Zojirushi Bento set, but it doesn't work well for all types of food. You can also brown bag it, but again, might not work depending on what you typically eat.

u/tjl73 · 3 pointsr/ShokugekiNoSoma

I have this in black. It does work well as it's basically a thermos. The key is to put the bowls in the correct order so they benefit most and it's properly sealed. But, you can't mix and match hot and cold foods. You either have the main bowls with cold foods or with hot foods and the side bowls at room temperature.

So, if you've made something that will keep in a thermos, it will work.

So this isn't cheap at all, but it's probably worth the money if it helps with portion control: Mr. Bento. I have the Ms. Bento which is their smallest size and my boyfriend has the classic bento box, which is larger than the Mr. Bento. He probably should have bought the Mr. Bento because the classic is a little bit too big unless you pack a lot of leafy greens and other light calorie foods that aren't energy dense. We've had them for about a month and have been very happy!

u/Anne657 · 3 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Zojirushi's Mr. Bento is pretty good, and has a container with a screw top lid that will even carry soup, no problems. The capacity is quite large and might be surplus to requirements, though. Zojirushi also makes a Ms. Bento has a similar arrangement that's smaller capacity.

Sammich ingredients with a couple of big romaine or chard leaves to make a wrap

High-quality lunch meat and hard-boiled eggs

u/ThePoliteCanadian · 3 pointsr/knifeclub

You can send it in OR buy a Lanksy turn box for very cheap and get a nice little sharpening done yourself. It's very easy to learn on that box, I like it quite much.

u/UncannyGodot · 3 pointsr/knifeclub

Yes, I certainly do.

On the low end you have some handheld sharpeners. The Smith's model is iconic and cheap. It gives you an acceptable edge, but it's not going to be good, and once it's loaded with metal it's hard to clean. These are mostly for tackle boxes and backpacks, quick solutions. It really wouldn't do a Benchmade justice.

In the middle, you can buy a guided rod system. The Spyderco Sharpmaker is the best I've seen. Lansky makes a few like this one. These systems do a really good job on pocket knives. The Sharpmaker is a great investment if you plan on dealing with knives for any extended period of time. They can keep a knife very sharp for years. Lansky's systems are relatively inexpensive, but aren't as precise as and lack some of the features of a Sharpmaker. I think the Sharpmaker is an ideal solution.

On the high end, you're looking at sharpening stones. There are two classes, oil and water stones. Oil stones are slower, but water stones are used slightly in the course of sharpening (one might last a decade for me) and are more prone to damage. These let you do repair, produce a more customized edge, and work on a knife's geometry behind the edge, something all knives require eventually. The majority of the time you wouldn't need this level of equipment, but when they come in handy they really come in handy. I use water stones on all of my knives. For most pocket knife users it's much easier and less costly to let a professional do this sort of work and maintain the knife with a rod system. No links here; there are dozens if not hundreds of stones on the market and there's no perfect one. Starting costs are around $150.

At the super duper expensive level, you have advanced assisted sharpening systems like the Edge Pro. These things are slick, easy to use, and ridiculously effective. They should be for the cost. Stones are still more versatile and a lot of the people who use these branch out in many ways.

u/bov-tye · 3 pointsr/knifeclub

You should never use the pull-through portion of that sharpener and the rod gives you no way of maintaining a consistent angle. This would be a lot more effective and versatile for about the same price.

This is the one I bought. It won't work as well as a full on sharpening stone set but it's quick and easy. Use the coarse sticks first and finish with the fine, obviously. I take great care not to mess up the knife so I've only used the fine sticks so far.

Ok, he's my still ghetto but much much less depressing method.

Sleep on the boxes, just cover them up with more fabric. $10

Get the hanging shit off the ceiling, it looks creepy. $0

Go to ikea, don't get a fancy desk. Screw those, they fall apart, and are more difficult to move if they stay together. They have a modular desk system. This is the main surface, and these cheap bastards are the legs.

Very easy to take apart.

Desk: $25 + tax. Let's just say $30.

Now get two or three of these LED strips. At $17 each, these things are pretty cheap. Don't use the adhesive on the back, it's meant to be permanent. Just use another method to attach them to your ceiling in a sort of back and forth zig-zag or S pattern.

If you got three of these, you have ample lighting in your room, two backup-up power supplies if one fails, and three remotes. Use two of those temporary "command-strips" to put two remotes on the wall, one next to your entrance, the other next to your bed, then leave the third as a regular remote. You can now control the lighting, and the entire color of your room from anywhere. I actually hung them slightly low, and pointed them at the ceiling, creating a sort of ambient lighting, and less glare from the individual diodes.

LED ceiling $51 + command strips, and whatever means you use to hang them about $60.

Posters are cheap. 3 posters from target = $22

A cool cube clothing organizer. This is also very modular, and has those doors to keep it from looking too trashy. $67

Put your guitar on this guitar stand. $15

If you have big headphones (I don't see any. If you use earbuds/iems then ignore this) then put this banana holder on your desk. They are perfect for holding headphones, and look cool while doing it. $12

At this point, I've gone slightly over budget it. My guess is around $216 total for all of the above.

Big comfy chairs are huge, and expensive. I suggest checking the free section of craigslist for something like recliners. Just make sure they're bug-free, throw those in there, and throw them away or give them away when you move.

I got lucky, and eventually got a pretty light comfy chair that I do actually move with me now, using this method.

u/fourme · 3 pointsr/sousvide

Another user here of the 3 gallon/ (12 quart) rubbermaid container and lid. I cut a very small hole in the lid for my anova to fit into and it hardly loses any water even on >24 hr cooks. Plus the lid is flexible enough to just lift one or two corners and position bags. you can also use it to keep a zip top bag in place instead of clips or vacuum bags.

I also use this ikea pot lid organizer to help separate bags or weigh down food that just keeps wanting to float. It is pretty nice because you can turn it around and remove pegs to customize the shape for what you are cooking.

Something else that is nice to use is a pair of tongs with silicone tips so that they don't rip your bags but still grip your food for removal or changing the placement of food, because you don't want to stick your hands in hot water!

You can also make steel cut oats by boiling water + oats and throwing in the thermos. They will be warm come morning however I could never hop on board. Way to much prep work and cleaning and instead I eat cereal primarily.

Also you can look into thermos cooking which is pretty cool however I think a electric pressure cooker would be more practical. However you will need an electrical system which can handle 1000watts for a short period of time.

u/paint-can · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

My SO doesn't have a microwave at his work anymore so I got him a food thermos and it works great. I sometimes do the "pre-heat" thing (pour hot water in & put the lid on for a few minutes before adding heated up food in it) but he says it doesn't matter. I pack it between 6:30-8am and he eats some around 11 and the rest by 1 and it's always steamy. I think the Thermos brand advertises that food will stay hot for up to 7 hours. He uses it for stews/soups, pasta and rice dishes. I add a little water to the rice dishes because he said they dry out.

The past two weeks, I've been making a veggie/chicken broth thing and throwing in whatever veggies are on sale. Cabbage is great in soup! At home I'll do an "egg drop" soup using egg beaters for extra protein (I don't see why this wouldn'tbe okay in a thermos but I haven't tried it). Also, beans are great to throw in. I cook up half a bag of great northern beans on Sundays and throw them in any/everything for added protein. You could put pasta in or cooked chicken too. On the extra cold days, I stir in pepper flakes &/orhot sauce!

u/cursethedarkness · 3 pointsr/bifl

I use this thermos for hot food like soup, stews, and some pastas for my husband's lunch. I've been very happy with it. Food safety is only an issue if you don't follow the directions (use boiling water to sterilize and heat it first, make sure the food is hot enough, etc). You can find several sources online that cover the food safety aspect.

For cold stuff, he uses this Coleman cooler. I had to link to eBay because apparently it isn't made anymore. He's been using it since the early 90s, so the older ones are definitely BIFL. I have no idea about the newer ones. I use ice packs to keep cold food cold.

u/JimGerm · 3 pointsr/keto

You have landed in the exact right spot. Congrats on getting all that other shit in your life sorted, and now you're sorting out weight. You should be crazy proud of yourself for getting this far.

I'm on lazy keto. Basically that means I only count carbs, nothing else. IT IS CRAZY EASY. I try to stay under 20-30 carbs a day. I sounds like it would be hard, but it's really not. The best tip I can provide is get rid of EVERYTHING in your house you can no longer eat. Just get rid of all of it. I have an issue with throwing away food (I just can't do it), so this was crazy hard for me. Keto is so much easier (and more effective) when there is nothing in the house to temp you that you shouldn't be eating.

After about a week, your carb cravings will just go away. This was both my and my wife's experience anyway. Eat meat, cheese, veggies (the rights ones), and a few other things and the weight will just melt off. I found this website to be VERY helpful when I started.

So I strongly suggest you do the following tonight (why wait? GET TO IT!):

  • Go home and gather everything you can't eat. I suspect this will almost empty your pantry and fridge (it did mine). Donate to a food bank if you wish, but it's got to go.
  • Go to the store and buy some bacon, steaks, cabbage, pork chops, green beans, bacon, zucchini, hamburger patties, various cheeses, bacon, almonds, bacon, and some bacon. If you have a Costco membership, that have huge bags of frozen veggies (beans, broccoli, and cauliflower specifically) that are cost effective and fantastic. They also have the best meat (near me anyway). The best thing about keto is that the food you can eat is CRAZY delicious. It was also kind of a shock to me to realize that real food is a lot more expensive than the garbage I was eating. Don't let this bother you. If there was a pill you could take that did what Keto does, you'd probably spend a lot of money on that, so just pay the real food premium and accept it as an investment in yourself.
  • At some point, go to amazon and get some FitPackers. Make several meals at once so you always have something to eat when you're hungry. In my experience, if you have nothing to eat and are tired, you're more likely to cheat because you're just too tired to do things right. If you meal prep, meals become easy AND keep you on target.
  • Watch the lbs melt off. My wife has lost 10 lbs a month doing nothing but eating what I make (I'm the cook, she can't boil water). I always keep a few different things in the fridge made via meal prepping, that way she has a little variety and can stay on target. She's lost 40 lbs in four months. In fact, she hit her target goal of 140 (139.6) THIS MORNING, and the smile on her face was worth a million bucks.

    So you can do this, but you HAVE TO DO THIS. You have to actually get started. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? YOUR NEW LIFE IS WAITING FOR YOU. We'll all be here anytime you need. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific food questions. I'm no expert but what I'm doing is working really well and is fantastically easy.

    Enjoy your new life!

u/WineoSK · 3 pointsr/xxketo

I prep the toppings separately in smaller containers so they don't get the greens soggy then mix when ready to eat. Depending on the state of your office fridge, you could make a weeks worth of toppings in one container and then just bring in a container of greens each day and mix it there.... or bring two containers in each day (plus dressing).

Sometimes I mix the dressing in with the toppings to keep things simple, but that's up to you.

As far as the containers themselves, I use the cheap meal prep containers from Amazon [here] (, but there are tons of different ones depending on what you're looking for.

Best of luck to you and your husband! I fantasize daily about getting out of this job and striking it out on my own. That's really brave and kudos to both of you on that huge decision.

u/Reiterated · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Hey there! I've been meal prepping for quite a while, and this sub has been great for helping me get ideas. I can't take all the credit for any of these recipes, but I did make them into things that I like. I do freeze the food in the black containers, and take one out and thaw in the fridge the day prior. This prep was for 10 total chicken thighs, cauliflower mash for 10 containers, and then mixed vegetables. The salads I keep in the fridge. Containers are the Fit Packer containers, which I purchased from Amazon. I am actively trying to lose weight (12 pounds gone!) and meal prepping has really helped me stick with my goals. Because of this, I included the calorie information from MFP for those of you who would like that.

Roasted Chicken

10 5oz(ish) chicken thighs (these have bones/skin)

Rosemary (like 4-5 sprigs)

Lemon Juice (about a quarter cup)

Preheat your oven to 400 Fahrenheit and take your chicken out of the package.

In a large bowl, put a quarter of the lemon juice at the bottom with one sprig of rosemary

Layer in your chicken thighs, making sure each has some lemon juice, and rosemary sprigs.

Allow to marinate for about 20 minutes, or until the oven is preheated (You can also marinate overnight, the lemon is VERY strong when you do this though.)

Bake for 45-60 minutes depending on your oven (Side note for this, I like to use those aluminum disposable pans for this from the dollar store. They're $1 for two and the acidity of the lemon killed my metal pan...)

Let cool for about 10 minutes before putting into meal prep containers.

Cauliflower Mash
I got this recipe from, and followed it pretty much exactly. I doubled it, then divided it by 10 so each container has about 100 grams of the mash. (MFP says that each serving is 110-ish calories for 8 servings. I kept this calorie count even though I divided it by 10 to account for any mistakes in counting.)

I do buy frozen, steam-in-bag veggies. These are super cheap and easy to prep, and I haven't had any issues with cooking them and then re-freezing them and having them be mushy or gross at all.

    This is not my idea at all, and you can totally put whatever veggies you want in this. The idea here is to layer your dressing, then hearty veggies, then less hearty veggies, then lettuce at the top. This particular week I didn't do dressing at the bottom (I like to choose my dressing in the morning before work) Here's what I did!

  • Tomatos (Sunbursts) - 148g

  • Mushrooms (sliced) - 60g

  • Chick Peas - 85g

  • Lettuce - fill the rest of the jar (it's about 85g)

    In the pictures I have some veggies and hummus. My trick with these is to cut them up and pre package them, just like with the food. Each plastic bag is about 1/2 a red pepper, and I write the total in grams on the bag to make it easy to track. They range from 85-100g per bag. The celery ends up being pretty consistent at 115-120. The hummus I do pre-portion, and that is exactly 28g, or one serving at 60 calories.

    I didn't picture it here, but I also do this with snacks I buy (veggie sticks, mini rice cakes, etc). I find it easy to grab things in the morning this way when everything is prepackaged, but then I don't have to pay for individual packages at the grocery store.

    All in all, this is a fair amount of work (probably 2 hours.) I do this about once every other week. For breakfasts I either do plain rice cakes with peanut butter, or cereal depending on my work schedule. Dinner I usually leave open, but I keep large quantities of salmon and meatballs in the freezer to make easy meals.

    If you have any questions, let me know!

What do I call it? I dunno :) good luck in the kitchen, though.

The containers are 28oz, they're made by a company called Fitpacker, and they're only ~$20 for 16 of em. They make all sorts of sizes. Check it out.

Is it a lot of food for a meal? Yes. Eating one of these in a single sitting will definitely leave you full. But that's by intention...

u/DangerousTides · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I ordered a 16-piece (plus one free) set of containers for $19 from a brand on amazon called fitpacker. They're awesome. Link if you're interested.

u/Wotnsleepdeprivation · 3 pointsr/mealprep

Step 1: buy lunchbox with a freezer pack in it. PackIt Freezable Lunch Bag with Zip Closure, Black

Step 2: buy meal prep containers. btw these meal prep containers fit in the lunchbox I linked you and to give you an idea of the size of the lunchbox, that's the only thing that will fit in there. Meal Prep Haven 3 Compartment Food Containers with Airtight Lid, Bento Box, Fitness Lunch Box for Meal Prep, 21 Day Fix and Portion Control, Set of 7

Step 3: buy food. You say you don't want to do any prepping which is fine but if that's the case buy applegate chicken breast. Not very high in sodium but not very low either. If you have the energy for just a litttttle bit of prep, try a rotisserie chicken. You will have to cut it up initially when you get it but once it's done, it's done for the whole week. You can eat this cold too if you don't have access to a microwave. Get canned vegetables. Rinse them off, it will lower the sodium content. Get fruit and vegetable platters that people get for parties, they are pre cut already. Other sides that do not need to be prepared can include string cheese, yogurt, mixed nuts (unsalted), granola bars, protein bars, veggie chips, boiled eggs, guacamole, hummus (this hummus company has their hummus paired with like pretzel chips on the bottom it's really just an open and eat thing).

Step 4: distribute into your meal prep containers

u/88sporty · 3 pointsr/ketorecipes

They're on Amazon but a word to the wise, as I also use them, they aren't the highest quality. I've used mine since December and I'm down to 5 that are usable and even those have broken bits and some minor cracks. That's with heavy use (I meal prep all of my lunches every week in them). I would recommend them because they're relatively inexpensive and very useful but just be warned they can be kind of brittle.

u/obscureyetrevealing · 3 pointsr/fitmeals

But this kind of container leaks pretty easily and after awhile knife cuts would sever it open.

u/MotherofSalsa · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Do not buy these containers. They're fine for a few weeks and washings but they crack and shatter super easily. I'll never buy them again.

I also own these and these hard ones. The single compartment ones I've ordered over and over (they're plastic, they start to show wear and tear and break down after a while. Also I just like fresh containers lol. I buy new ones evey 3 months or so) because they're so great. Never had one break on me and they're a great size. The hard plastic ones are also amazing. The Plastic is thick and not flimsy at all. They're smaller but I've had no problems with them either.

I just bought a Jaxx FitPack luchbox yesterday on Amazon. It comes with it's own containers and ice pack. A coworker has one and I've messed around with her containers to see what they're like and they seem pretty sturdy too IMO. It'll be here tomorrow so if you're interested I can update you on them when I actually have them in my hands.

This week I had planned to make a mushroom burger thing and ended up deciding to make wraps instead. I did pick up some great meal prep containers though, instead of the yucky plastic ones I've been using.

Food wise, last night's dinner was an easy pan cooked chicken breast topped with prosciutto and provolone and broiled in the oven plus one of the Costco mediterranean salad kits. I've got a Turkish Kebab on deck for later in the week. I love this recipe but it'll be served with carbs (rice pilaf and lavash). The kebabs themselves are good and low-carb.

My meal prep containers arrived from Amazon so I’m super excited about that. I stayed up late making a double batch of red beans and rice. I’ll start learning more and tinkering and figuring out what works for me with meal prep.

And I have a (6th) date with Lamb Chops tonight. I’m bringing over some red beans and rice and he is making corn bread. He’s always cooking for me so this is my chance to finally show off my cooking skills and feed him. :D Things are really well and I’m starting to get a bf/gf vibe from us. We didn’t have plans this weekend but I got texts Saturday morning letting me know how much fun he had Friday, including a video. Lol. And we texted through the day Saturday. That’s new for us as we don’t text much.

u/ZMan941 · 3 pointsr/cigars

To chime in with the other people suggesting food storage or travel humidor type products:

Food storage is cheap and offers lots of sizes. My personal favorite is the Sistema Klip It as they have separate hinges (as opposed to molded in "living hinges") and a gasket that can be removed for cleaning.

The downside to any food storage option is durability and how secure the cigars are inside. Unlike dedicated cigar products, they won't have the grooved foam to help secure your cigars in the lateral direction.

Travel humidors are basically hard plastic cases. One brand used to be owned by OtterBox, if that gives you a sense for the material. Many of them look like Pelican cases, but they tend not to have the pressure relief system or be of the same quality plastic as a Pelican. Some common brands are Cigar Caddy and Herfador. They are certainly more rugged than food storage but are more expensive for their storage space. However Field Supply has fairly regular sales on some similar cases.

[Here](] is an example of the 40-count travel humidor they sell. It went on sale for $20 instead of the $32 it is normally at a bit back, but at the time I decided that I didn't need another travel humidor, so I bought the Two-Pistol Case instead. If you notice, they are the exact same case, just with different foam. It's a nice case, although I will say that the material is not up to the same level durability of a Pelican/SKB/ect level of case, but it was also about 1/3 to 1/4 of the cost.

Just keep in mind that while travel humidors give a listed number of cigars, that only holds true for a certain ring gauge and below. Larger cigars will take up more space and you'll lose capacity.

u/I_Am_Coopa · 3 pointsr/cigars

Tray +

Obviously the capacity is dependent on the size of the 'gars, but I'll probably keep it to 25 max as that's the recommended limit for one large boveda pack.

u/thedogsbollies · 3 pointsr/cigars

When starting out always go for the tupperdor route. It doesnt matter what the environment is the cigars remain the same rh.

​ The default setup for a new cigar smoker is this: Systema container | cedar tray | Boveda 65 | Hygrometer. You could get away with not buying the hygrometer as long as you use the Boveda's but It's always good to know the rh. Other recommendations: The Cuban Crafters Perfect Cutter and another great tool to have is the PerfecDraw, not cheap but worth every penny.

u/soloz2 · 3 pointsr/cigars

Here's what I use. Saw some recommendations here, and skimmed the Amazon reviews to see lots of people using this setup too.
Spanish Cedar Trays
And two 65% Bovedas

This setup will easily hold 50+ cigars. You can fit two of the trays, and the Bovedas fit on each end. I haven't had more than 27 cigars at a time in it yet, but they all fit in the top tray along with my hydrometer with some room for a few more. Right now, the bottom tray has air packets to help regulate humidity by reducing empty space.
Here's a pic:

u/Bentwookiee838 · 3 pointsr/cigars

You do not want to use regular cedar. Reason spanish cedar is used on cigars is because it is mold resistant and second aroma. That being said you could get away with an old cigar box or pieces of one but it's not really necessary in a tupperdore. A lot of people including myself are using the below container with the below trays. I will caution you it is hit or miss with the trays. Half will arrive either broken or covered with a dust that looks like mold. I usually order twice what I meet and return the defective ones. As far as hygrometers I suggest not going cheap although with tupperdores it's not even really necessary as long as your container is tight and boveda not expired. I just like being able to look in and see because of my ocd.

u/curved09 · 3 pointsr/cigars

As u/DavisEcho mentioned, Sistema + spanish cedar trays are very efficient,

  • you can fit 2 trays in one Sistema 1870

  • have you looked at some Wineadors as an option?
u/jtread4 · 3 pointsr/cigars

Most will recommend the Sistema 1870.

You can optionally get a Spanish Cedar Drawer for organization.

You will need a hygrometer.

And finally Boveda. Most people will recommend 62% or 65% for a tupperdor setup.

u/splat313 · 3 pointsr/cigars

Like the other commenter said, tupperware containers provide very good seals. You want one with a gasket.

Sistema KLIP IT Rectangular Collection Food Storage Container,236 Oz are pretty popular and they almost exactly fit two spanish cedar trays that you can also find on Amazon. The trays arent required, but look and smell nice. That will fit two boxes of cigars, so say 30-50 loose ones

Boveda packs are little packets that absorb or release moisture to bring the air to its stated humidity level. They are very widely used in humidors, especially tuperware. A 65% pack or two and you're good to go.

For like 20-30 bucks you can have a setup that will preserve cigars for years. Just keep it in a cool area of your house like the basement. I think 65-70 degrees is ideal.

Hygrometers will report the temp and humidty. You can get an electronic one off amazon for like 10 dollars. Its not required as I've never heard a boveda pack failing.

u/pjstar34 · 3 pointsr/cigars

Check out this post of mine. $7 at Walmart and will hold 20-25 sticks depending on size. If you need more space later, you can order this container and this cedar tray both from Amazon.

u/simplecocktails · 3 pointsr/cigars

Yup. If you need specific recommendations, I started with a Sistema 236 oz, which will hold 2-4 boxes and a ton of singles, then pretty quick I moved to a Container Store 46 qt, which will likely hold 15+ boxes.

u/reddit_affiliate · 3 pointsr/CigarMarket

Would you consider a trade for this Dunhill Rhodium Lucite Humidor? HMU!

u/JamesSch35 · 3 pointsr/cigars

For a humidor, I would get a Sistema Container and a couple of these trays. This setup has worked great for a number of people, myself included. It seals very well.

u/AztexLA · 3 pointsr/cigars

Hey fellow Angelino welcome! That's not a bad buy for that price especially for a starter set. The sticks are just to help you get your feet wet there are a few in there that are decent for beginners. I can't say much about the humidor but usually when they combine them in a cheap set like that they aren't the best quality. If you don't care for aesthetics I would recommend getting a tupperdor and throwing in there some 65 RH bovedas. You just stick the cigars in there and a boveda or two and you are golden! Also check out r/cigarmarket for future buys it's a great place if you are looking to get samplers at a great price people will help hook you up!

Hope you enjoy your stay!

Get yourself a kitchen safe if you can't make it through without unlocking. You can set a time where it can't be opened beforehand without breaking it, days / weeks whatever.

Honestly once you get past 48 hours, you barely notice it. Just make sure you're properly lubricated. Vaseline works best, as it doesn't dry out or become grossly sticky. And then once you've a hit a week, you wonder if you're ever going to care about being unlocked again. It becomes a fun game, and it's very easy to forget you have it on in the first place.

Nuts are very healthy for you, your issue doesn’t seem to be what you’re eating, but portion control. Have your nuts, but measure out an acceptable amount for that fits into the amount of calories you’re eating that day. You can get a box of snack sized baggies at the dollar store. Only allow yourself to eat your allotted amount of baggies. You can even lock up the rest of your supply with a food safe so you’re not able to binge on nuts once you use up your daily allotment.

Been using this for over a year now without problem and it's great to reheat soups, leftovers, and just about anything I have tried.

u/RambunctiousShyGuy · 2 pointsr/mantids

Some pictures can help with the identification of the species, though I hear that the Chinese mantis (T. Sinensis) is commonly given out to kids in some elementary schools.

In the likely case that you are housing T. Sinensis nymphs, it is important to note how prone this species is to mismolts when they are young. Nevertheless, a lot of people will still tell you they are a beginner specie (though certainly manageable). Since yours are still feeding off of fruit flies, they are still in the early instars and you should pay particular attention to humidity and the enclosure itself.

Humidity should be around 50% for these guys. Some members of the mantidforum suggest misting just enough so that any visible moisture on the walls evaporates within 30 minutes, but do not let the paper towel completely dry out. Anymore and you risk oversaturation. I have had a ghost nymph straight up drop dead from this (possibly due to fungal infection caused by excess moisture). As for how often, some people like to do it once every morning or once before bed time. It's up to preference, but I spray very lightly once in the morning and regularly at night. If I had to spray once a day, I would do it at night because that's when most will shed. Important thing is to keep the paper towel moist (but not soggy)!

As for your stick woes - never put outdoor collected wood in a pet's enclosure without sanitizing it either by oven baking at 200-250 degrees F for 2-3 hours or by using a bleach solution. You might not want what hatches out to get into your home, nevermind your mantis enclosure!
What I like to do is glue the netting that people often put on their lids onto the side of the 32oz cups. This way, the mantis get all around climbing surface and you eliminate the need for sticks that can potentially get in the way during an important molt.
These work well:

The black netting can usually be found in very large rolls for under $10 in most hardware stores.
That said, fake plants are okay as long as there is plenty of room for molting.

*Edit: As they get larger, newer enclosures must accommodate their size. T. Sinensis grow pretty large (around 4"). The general rule for every mantis enclosure is twice it's length in width, and three times its length in height. This means that by adulthood, you are looking at an enclosure that is a rectangle of dimensions 8"x8"x12" or a cylinder with a radius of 4" by a height of 12", or of course another container of similar dimensions.

This link has a lot of helpful information about this specie:

I use rubberized shelf liner It's this sort of rubbery/grippy type material that you can buy almost anywhere (Target/K-Mart/Wal-Mart, probably hardware stores, maybe grocery stores) You can cut it into whatever size you want. Not only does it prevent slippery things like phones and tablets from sliding around, it also does a great job of dampening noises from vibrating things. I have some USB hard drives on my desk that are stacked on top of each other but the spinning hard drives cause the cases to vibrate together and make a really annoying (not very loud, but VERY annoying/distracting) buzzing noise. I cut a couple pieces of shelf liner to the same size as the hard drive cases and inserted a piece in between each drive, and now the vibration noises are gone!

It worked well enough for him (he stayed in first position, used no vibrato), that he'd use it even in concerts and sessions.

I wouldn't recommend that over elastics and a cushion maybe covered with grippy material, since it offers no support, but your post reminded me of it.

u/RearEchelon · 2 pointsr/Coilporn

Get some shelf liner and put that underneath it. If you're still pulling it, clamp it to one edge of the table (still with the shelf liner under it) and braid from the opposite edge.

u/mytwobabies · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

We put ours on top of a chest of drawers. I'd recommend putting a shelf liner (like this one) between the pad and dresser to keep it from moving around. As others have stated, never leave baby more than an arm's reach away or unattended.

u/Farmboy9 · 2 pointsr/DIY

We use this stuff between our dogs' bed and the kennel floor. It works perfectly even in the moving car.

u/little__bigfoot · 2 pointsr/powerlifting

The commercial gym I train at has slippery benches as well. Here are some solutions that have helped me not fly off the bench:

  1. Drawer/shelf liners: this is probably the best solution! I just drape it on top of the entire bench and BAM. No slip!

    The liner is sold in a roll (link below), but you only need a piece long enough for the bench.

  2. Bands: you can tie resistance bands/floss around the bench. I don’t like this method because it takes me time to tie the bands in the right spot (head area and butt). It’s much faster to just toss the drawer liner on the bench.

  3. A7 bar grip shirts: these have a grippy material on the upper back area of the shirt. I think they run about $30 each.

    Hope this helps! HAPPY BENCHING!

u/Highlanderwolf · 2 pointsr/highstories

I started messing around with weed around the same age, so I'm not gonna just say "you're too young" or any of that shit. You'll still do it anyways, and I'd rather you were smart about it.

First, I would highly suggest finding someone who has experience with weed to be with you when you do weed. I'll give you all the advice I know, but it's still better to have an experienced person on hand. Maybe the person that made the cookies?

Second, be careful with edibles, and very careful with edibles when you don't know the concentration. It's really easy to take too much, more so when you've just started. I'd personally suggest you smoke instead of doing edibles, as you can feel the effects much faster, and better gauge how much to use. That being said, smoking isn't the most pleasant thing when you start, and you either need some sort of piece, or you need to be able to roll.

Third, the fun stuff: always have food on hand. Snack food and candy is wonderful, but actual food is also amazing. Really everything is. If you plan on smoking, I'd suggest having something to drink as well, such as Gatorade. Music is great, and you'll find that bass heavy music is really cool. Dubstep was really created for stoners, but I'd suggest Drum and Bass. Honestly, the type of music you choose really sets the tone of your high. Try something like Chillstep if you just want to relax. Just make sure not to play it too loud, headphones might be a good idea d-_-b. Another great thing to do: shower. Go take a really long, hot shower. It's great. Oh, and smoke with friends. It makes things so much more fun, and then you can play Mario Kart or something.

Oh, and if you plan on keeping weed in your house, and don't want people to know, invest in a vacuum seal container, like this one. The smell will go straight through any number of plastic bags. That being said, a mason jar works just as well.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Just remember: be mindful of how much you take, have food, and make sure you don't have anything you need to do before you get high. Also, if you have any other questions, I'd suggest making a post on r/weed. They're pretty friendly, and the community is larger than this subreddit, so more people will be able to help you out. r/trees is another good one, but they have an 18+ rule, so don't mention your age.

Anyways, have a good time!

u/tomorrowistomato · 2 pointsr/Trichsters

I actually have another strategy. I use this thing called the Ksafe to lock up my tweezers for 1-2 days. Then I allow myself to groom my face/eyebrows and lock them back up immediately so there's no temptation to go overboard and start attacking my eyelashes. I think I made a post about the safe a while ago but I never followed up because it wasn't really helping much. But I think having the visual reminder on my mirror plus the promise of a reward is what's keeping me motivated this time.

HotLogic Mini Portable Oven - Food Warmer and Heater - Lunch Box for Office, Travel, Potlucks, and Home Kitchen

u/kloseweight · 2 pointsr/loseit

As to your fourth point, I recently purchased a HotLogic portable oven and it's so awesome! Takes about an hour or two to heat up food, even frozen food, and the food tastes way better than in the microwave. All you need is an outlet. I'd invest in that since you don't have a microwave at work. You'll still be able to have hot food.

u/mattzawr · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I've been using this hotplate lunch box that reheats your food over a few hours (3+ for a big meal), and it is a huge improvement over nuking it in the microwave. I typically have chicken, coconut rice, and veggies, and it always comes out great. The reviews say it heats up a few hours but I generally find this isn't enough for big meals, and I want the food temp to be well out of the danger zone, so I usually aim for 3+ hours.

It's called the Hot Logic Mini. I keep one at work and bought an extra one for home. Eventually I'd like to put my dinner in the box in the morning but I'm not sure how comfortable I am having my food heated all day.

Hot Logic Mini is nice if you're just reheating. The disadvantage is speed. But if you can plan it out, they're nice.

u/HelloMyNameIsAmanda · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

I had something similar while I was briefly on the road: . I really liked it, but it was 120v and I had a pretty underwhelming electrical system, so I usually only used it when I was plugged in or at an actual campsite. The thing is, that although these things are low draw, they take a really long time to actually heat your food. Like, two hours for reheating leftovers. That said, they're a very gentle heat, so leftovers come out warmed a lot nicer than if you used a microwave. And with the one I had I could just put my tupperware in there and half the point was avoiding dirtying dishes and using more water. Didn't try to do any actual cooking with it, though. Had a butane campstove for that.

If you have a robust battery bank/solar and want to have something to reheat stuff or warm up frozen meals nicely over a long period of time, it's not a bad product. Maybe run the numbers and see if you can plug it into your cigarette lighter while driving? But either way, get one of them that are soft-sided so that you can stuff it away somewhere and it takes up barely any space. It's a pretty specific use case, but I was pretty fond of mine.

u/heatherjasper · 2 pointsr/preppers

I've been researching the heck out of emergency cooking for the past few weeks, and here's what I found:

Outdoor stoves:

-Grill (assuming you have a yard or similar area to use one in).


-Solar stove.

Outdoor ovens:

-Coleman camp oven

Indoor stoves:

-Gas stove

-Sterno cans (aka canned heat). You can get some alcohol stove stands off of Amazon that you can put pans onto, such as these ones:

-Coleman stoves. I've seen mixed results about theses. The manufacturer says don't use them at all indoors while others say use them with proper ventilation. I would have one just in case but have other resources to start off with.

-Flameless cookers. The systems I know of are the Barocook, Yabul, and Magic Cook. Barocook and Magic Cook use the double boiler method. You put water into the first pot and then put activated heat packs into the water. Place second pot with food into the first and wait until your food is done. With Yabul, you put the food directly onto the heat pack. I don't know if the heat packs are interchangeable.

Indoor ovens:

-DIY tealight oven. Basically, you take a toaster oven, gut it of its heating elements, replace elements with a bread stone and tealights, and be careful. You can find the instructions here:

-HotLogic Mini Personal oven. Just came across this on Amazon, and it seems nifty. You would need a power source (a power bank or generator) to run it, though.

Before you try anything with fire or gas, I would highly recommend having a fire extinguisher and gas alarm on hand. I would also keep a food thermometer and a guide nearby.

For basic heat and power:

-Blankets. Lots of blankets.

-Fireplace, if you have one.

-Make a fort or set up a tent and focus your energy on heating that up, rather than your entire house.

-Have a power bank, at the very least. Get one that could power, say, a mini fridge or CPAP. Definitely have smaller ones for your phone and similar electronics. Keep them charged.

-Have a generator and keep fuel on hand. Make sure to keep on maintenance for it. It won't work super long term, but you'll be able to have something for a while, long enough to be ready to switch to Plan C (whatever that may be for you).

-HotHands or similar heat packs. You can get one-time use packs or reusable ones.

-Rechargable batteries. Keep them charged and keep enough for any electronics that require them that you want the keep powered.

-Candles (again, have a fire extinguisher or two on hand). You can get long-running emergency ones off of Amazon. I would steer away from stocking up on a ton of scented candles, just because it would get annoying to stay inside with five difference scents burning almost 24/7.

The interest shown in this prompted me to jump on the old search engine and see what is out there. Apparently there are hundreds, if not thousands, of answers for travelers.

u/TableTopFarmer · 2 pointsr/Cooking

The problem with cooking a whole meal is that you will need to leave a whole other set of need spices, oils and liquids at work.

But you could reheat a meal assembled from your own leftovers from the night before. Or purchased, ready made frozen dinners.

If you want a fresh meal, consider investing in a Hot Logic mini-oven, $39 at Bed Bath and Beyond. This site has a 20% off coupon code.

Assemble your meal at home, season it, and plug it in when you get to work. It will be ready at lunch time, and leave your break free to enjoy lunch, without the worry of cooking it.

Maybe you can freeze your meals in bulk and reheat it from its frozen state in the lunch box. I believe it takes 2-3 hours to heat it up before you can eat it.

I literally bought something similar a few days ago. I obviously can't vouch for how much of a BIFL purchase it is, but they make it clear what should go in what container, such as soups, cold foods etc. and it also states that you shouldn't tilt the tiffin box either - so the instructions are pretty clear. So far I'm enjoying it. No spillage. My food stayed warm. No complaints.

I was unusually excited to pack my lunch this week.

I have a Mr. Bento which I don't see much of in this subreddit but it works for me. :) I'm totally lazy when it comes to making my lunch look pretty so I kinda just throw stuff in the bento.

This is my flickr album of some of my bento lunches. I added description of the food below the individual pictures. I haven't added any pictures lately because I've been a little busy.

One thing that helped me out for healthy snacks to put in the Bento was paying for Graze. It's a small box of snacks I would get in the mail at 5 bucks a pop once a week. I'm not sure if they increased the price though because I stopped the service when I planned to travel for a few months earlier in the year. This is a picture of one of my Graze boxes I received in the mail.

u/sugar_cubed · 2 pointsr/Bento

I hope I can help a little but I'm no bento pro myself.

Your rice drying out is more problematic than being clumpy. Sushi (aka short grain/Calrose) rice is sticky. This is actually great if you're planning on eating with chopsticks. Since you can't heat up your lunch you do have a few options.

You can always:

  • Invest in a Mr. Bento which are great for keeping food hot for hours.

  • Pack a sauce to go with/on your rice to add moisture to it.

  • Place something moist on top of your rice to keep it from drying out. Meat, sauce or even a cabbage leaf would work.

    My main concern would be that jasmine and basmati rice are types of aromatic rice. Their taste is distinct and it will change the flavour of the dish you're making if it calls for simple white rice. If it were me, I'd just bite the bullet and buy a bag of short grain/Calrose rice. Hope this helps. Good luck with your bento!
u/thetiffany · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Breakfast: yogurt + granola + fruit. Or I'll make a breakfast casserole and portion that out for the week.

Lunch: animal protein + vegetable (usually salmon and spinach, steak and broccoli, or chicken and green beans), some type of curry + rice, or a 1/2 sandwich and vegetables. I like to make different chilis, stews, or chicken fajitas in the crock pot and eat that throughout the week as well.

I usually do fruit, vegetables or crackers + hummus, or chocolate for a snack.

I also make bentos when I'm craving Japanese or local Hawaii food. I have this container which is actually the best insulated lunch container I have ever owned. If I pack hot food, the temperature will remain in the safe zone for hours so I don't have to be awkward in the work kitchen to heat up the food. It also comes with a travel bag and spork.

u/somewhat_pragmatic · 2 pointsr/Frugal

Mr. Bento

Its a bit pricey, but you can keep both hot and cold things in it. The trays are liquid seals when seated together so soup isn't a problem. Why buy lunch meat when he could be eating higher quality, but cheaper cut, meats like pork shoulder (who doesn't like pulled pork) or marinated flank steak for lunch!

u/jmassaglia · 2 pointsr/EDC

I have a few different lunch boxes depending on what I'm going to eat that day. I really like the Zojirushi Mr. Bento because it has multiple smaller containers that can hold different things including one for soup. Other times if I am only bringing something liquidy I will use a Stanley Adventure Food Jar. If I am just bringing a sandwich I will use a soft insulated lunch box with some tupperware-style containers inside.

u/NgArclite · 2 pointsr/ems

Get yourself a cooler like /u/ScarlettsLetters says or a lunch box with the ice packs and take sandwiches or food you can eat cold/don't mind cold.

If you want hot food I'd say invest in a bento that can store hot foods. I use this not the biggest one available so if you are a hungry person or eat big portion look for a bigger one. I can supply better pictures of the container sizes for this one if you want. I also found a nice food thermos at walmart for the winter months were I make oatmeal in the morning or I just put oats in there and when I get access to hot water I make it for a later snack/meal.

Otherwise you are kinda stuck just making sandwiches in the morning and tossing in some chips. You don't have to be making Rubens or masterwhiches everyday but it sure beats fast food in terms of nutrition. Buy bulk chips from costco/sams club/BJ and toss some in a ziploc bag or a container. Or pasta. fills you up and its just noodles and w.e sauce / meats/veggies you want. Just give yourself maybe 10-20min in the morning to make food.

The best strategy is to make a quick dinner and make 2-3 extra portions. Store your leftovers in some tupperware, and put one of the servings into a lunch jar ( Leave it in your fridge to grab on the way out the door in the morning.

Ta da! $2-3 lunch.

u/swanzie · 2 pointsr/EDC

My two favorites are the Kershaw Cryo and the Spyderco Tenacious. They're perfect. The only reason I'd recommend the Cryo over the Tenacious is because of the speed opening. It's very handy to have, but if you don't care, I'd go Tenacious.

Then take your left over money and get a Lansky sharpener.

I was complaining about my knifes and their edge because I always used those Smith ones from Lowes. The Lanksy made my knife a thousand times better. Sharpen it every other week and it's perfect for everything I need whenever I need it. Makes all the difference.

u/smallbatchb · 2 pointsr/knives

In my opinion, one of the easiest sharpening systems for beginners are crock sticks or Spyderco's Sharpmaker. The crock sticks are significantly cheaper though and will last a lifetime if you don't break them.

I learned to sharpen on crock sticks. You just keep the blade edge facing down and the blade straight and make slicing passes down either side until you have an edge. Stupid simple, works great, cheap, and the angles should be perfectly fine for most factory edges.

u/biohazurd · 2 pointsr/EDC

If you can get good at a wet stone i think it is the most effective but for myself i have a hard time getting a even edge. I really like to use "crock sticks" myself. This lansky is inexpensive and works great for all of my knifes.

u/Cleath · 2 pointsr/battlestations
u/QuipA · 2 pointsr/headphones

With the AKG-K7 series models it is important to choose a stand that lets you hang the headphones from the two plastic beams above the headband. If you hang the headphone from the headband it will wear out the suspension straps and after a while the headphone starts sliding down your head.

Your best bet is a simple banana hanger from amazon. Just make sure that the one you pick is high enough to comfortably hold the K7XX without bending the Mini XLR connector.

The final result should look like this.

You can pretty much cook as many steaks as you can fit in your container, so long as you keep them somewhat separated. I like to use cheap steel cooling racks for this. They'll rust, but that doesn't really matter.

As for container recommendations, get yourself a restaurant-style plastic food bin. They hold heat a lot better and are better shaped than a big pot. I have a 5 gallon Rubbermaid model, which works very well for medium to large cooks. I've fit four racks of beef ribs in there (barely!), and an 4-bone rib roast in that thing, as well as a metric butt-ton of kabobs (about 15 lbs!).

However, if you're just feeding yourself and/or a significant other, it's probably a bit overkill. In that case, going for a 3 gallon squarish bin is probably a good idea, since you can buy aftermarket lids for them to fit your sous vide cooker.

u/gregg1e · 2 pointsr/sousvide

There are infinite options for setup so I'll simply provide what I use:

I have a cambro food container I cook in. Rubbermaid works well but I needed something bigger. I use an IKEA lid organizer to hold my bags in place (this didn't fit in the rubbermaid). I only put foil or lids on the top for extremely long cooks (18-24 hours), you won't lose much water in a basic dinner cook. I have a rubber mat on my counter for hotter cooks to protect it. I also use a vacuum sealer for my food and found that placing a pyrex dish in the water helps keep them from floating. Here are some links to what I have purchased

u/Stephanie_3D · 2 pointsr/sousvide

I have the joule, it's easy to use and small. Rated the best by America's test kitchen.
You can save $50 by opting for the non stainless steel version. The internals are exactly the same, just cosmetic on the caps.

I personally opted for the Rubbermaid Commercial containers the 18qt is perfect for most cooks. For long cooks you might want some insulation, like a wrap or something. A 12qt is likely too small for a turkey. My 18qt can barely fit a small one.

I don't use a rack very often. It can be good if you cook a lot at once.

Don't forget a searing method! I have an iwatani torch,
A good cast iron skillet, and a homemade yakitori grill (most just use a starter chimney).

The basic foodsaver is good enough, though some don't have enough sealing power for wet foods. Some models have a wet/dry setting. All else fails you can get an impulse sealer. I use mine to double the seals on Ziploc bags, which their quality has been questionable and leak sometimes.
So long as the sealer has an accessory port, you can get a handheld attachment later. I actually don't recommend the fancy models with auto seal or bag detect, they tend to have more issues and less control over the process.

If you're looking to do a whole turkey, you'll need to get a big bag, or a vacuum sealer with at least 15in width. Cheaper just to get a big bag.

Ultimately depends on what you are going to cook. But Rubbermaid 12qt containers are quite flexible, not too large or too small for most applications.

If you are going to cook something really big, you may eventually need to get something even larger, but for starting off, this is the perfect size.

For longer or high temp cooks, you can also get fitted lids with the right size hole for a Joule (and presumably an Anova):

u/HumanPlus · 2 pointsr/exmormon

I second the call for an aero press. Grab one, a coffee grinder, and a storage container (mason jars work fine too) for your locker or safe location.

After the initial investment (less than two weeks of your 5$ a day), this plus hot water gets you coffee at pennies a cup. The container keeps your beans fresh, and you only grind what you need every time.

u/neil454 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I got an Airscape.

I'm not sure how much of a difference it actually makes, but man is it satisfying to plunge the air out of this thing.

u/jixie007 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Honestly depends on priority: time/laziness vs coffee quality.

  • Quality: get the Hario Skerton and grind it before you make it.

  • Time / laziness: Getting the local roaster to grind your coffee will give you a better grind, BUT it will go stale over time. Since you're still developing your palate / just upgraded from grocery store (which is all stale), this should be fine for now. I suggest an air tight canister, like this. It won't stop it from going stale, but it'll slow it down. You'll notice the first cups will taste better than the last, but the last cups will still be better than what you were getting from the grocery store. This is how I do. #coffeesnobposer

    Edit: If you get the airtight canister, every time you open it, the grinds are exposed to air = goes stale faster. So you'll want to put a couple days to a week's worth in a separate container. Then you're only opening the large canister once or twice a week, vs. every day.
u/dUbiLL · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Wish they could sent one bag every 2 weeks. That would make more sense.

But if the beans are roasted a few days before you receive them the beans will still be good in two weeks. Some would say roasted beans achieve peak flavor 2-3 weeks after they are roasted.

I would buy a couple of these to maximize the freshness.

u/im_the_guy_who_sucks · 2 pointsr/funny

In the future, you might not want to store your beans in the hopper. Light and oxygen cause the tasty flavor compounds in your coffee to break down. You'll be better served by keeping your beans in something airtight, like opaque tupperware or a specialized container like this.

u/cgiall420 · 2 pointsr/nutrition

yup, put the oats and boiling water (and a pinch of salt) in one of these:

Let it sit overnight, and in the morning the oats are ready to go and even still warm. The only trick is getting the amount of water right, but that's just a couple days of trial and error.

Does your work have no power plugs? If your boss is ok with a microwave being there you may find one at a thrift store cheap.

You can also just store food hot in a container like this. If you put in a soup that was simmering in the morning by lunch it would likely still be hot. As I said elsewhere in this post when I put coffee in my thermos in the morning it could still be hot 12 hours later.

u/Anotherlisbongirl · 2 pointsr/Fitness

You're welcome! I have food allergies which makes buying things when I'm out super difficult. I usually take food with me when I go somewhere. In Winter you just need something hot.

Thermos is the best brand, that's what I've always used. Here's a link to one, see what else you can come up with, but this is what I mean. They go by all sorts of names. Insulated food container, vacuum sealed food container, etc. Jump around from this example:

I don't have a microwave at home and only have access to one at school so when I want something warm I heat it at home and put it into one of these. Depending on how hot the cup was beforehand, it keeps my food hot for 4-5 hours and pretty warm to around 6.

u/ilovescones · 2 pointsr/loseit

I bought one of these lockable kitchen safes - I buy a few small treats (all under 100 calories - milky bars, small kinder bars, cereal bars) put them in there and set it to look for 24 hours (or however long until about 8:30 am). After breakfast, so I'm not hungry, I wait for it to unlock, quickly grab one thing and relock it. Then I only need willpower for about 20 seconds instead of resisting them all day. I literally cannot get to my snacks so if I want something to eat I have to cook it and I'm lazy so I don't! I try and save my treat until 2pm, but if I eat it earlier it doesn't matter because I literally can't get another one.

Normally I would eat a multipack of my treats in one go, this has really helped me. But it is quite expensive and might not work for everyone.

Though I haven't smoked for as long as you or as much. I understand your spot. I enjoy smoking but sometimes I feel it can cloud my mind and it's important to draw lines. One thing that's helped me is a Kitchen Lockbox. It can lock up to 10 days. Now no need to go all out with 10 days right off the bat, just do a day or two. Build up to it.

Fair warning: You need to put EVERYTHING you have in there. If it's smokable or you can smoke from it, put it in there. If you need any advice or encouraging words, feel free to PM me :)

OMFG... Same! I managed to reach 30 days streak with this plan I came up with:

I bought this timer lock - Kitchen Safe: Time Locking Container (Blue Lid + Clear Base) - 5.5" Height

You can lock anything from a minute upto 10 days. I always find the first week of NoFap really hard. After two weeks, it starts to feel normal. So, I locked my phone for ten days. Took the sim out from my smart phone and put it in the brick phone.

I used my WhatsApp through WhatsApp web on my laptop. And I had no way to browse porn. Helped me reach day 30. I broke it as soon as I started to use my smart phone normally like I used to.

PS: I have this rule where I don't watch porn on my laptop because I use it for studies. So, yh...

u/No_Trouble_No_Fuss · 2 pointsr/Discipline
u/wang-bang · 2 pointsr/Dryfasting

Good, go for it

What I do is that I have a unique keyed lock on my kitchen and a kitchensafe time lock:

I put my payment cards in there and the keys to the kitchen as well. I set the timer to 24 hours + whatever is needed to get to 6 a.m. which is the hour I usually wake up for.

When the timer lock unlocks I also weigh myself for that day and pick out my clothes. If I hit my BF% or if I am satisfied with the amount of time that I spent fasting then I take the key and cards out.

If I want to continue I simply set the timer to ca 24h again. ¨

Its pretty good because I reinforce the commitment every day but I have only tested it for under a week now.

I am going to commit to a goal based dry fast right now and I am planning on using that organization to motivate myself through it.

I'd prefer to have a safe that simply opens between 6:00 am and 6:10 am but I havent found that yet.

The early time is important because all of the stores around here are closed at that hour. If I want to eat then I have to eat the veggies and meat that I have available in the kitchen. Its less of a temptation to pop off to the corner store for a cheat meal.

u/ReluctantlyHipster · 2 pointsr/BDSMcommunity

From some experience, realtor's lock boxes work well but are a pain to put keys into/take keys out. You can find a bunch of time-lock safes which are nice and easy but they take away a fun aspect of the keyholder having direct control over the key. The perfect option seems to be the ChronoVault but that is very expensive so I haven't tried it.

About some of the other devices. When I am in chastity I like to be completely trapped. Even if I tried my best, I don't want to be able to get out. The above 3 items work well and are relatively foolproof unless you know how to pick locks. I don't like the plastic locks because they are pretty easy to remove and re-do.

I hope this helped.. Good luck!

u/zxcv437 · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

beginner I like these because they were relatively cheap, have had no issues hand washing them, and they were delivered to my house.

I've seen someone talk about how he was doing this for a while and got tired of $20 every other month or so, so he went and bought something like this and now doesn't worry when one warps or breaks he can just toss it and he's out a buck.

I'm not a guy who goes for the separated boxes, idk, when you eat on a plate it's all together, I just plan my meals the same way. Also invest in some good ziplock baggies, things like celery, jerky and sandwiches I don't like free floating in the container and it's easier to grab a bag or two when I'm running out the door.

The single containers can be found on Amazon as well, but a Korean restaurant near my work has them, so I take them from coworkers otherwise throwing them away.
The 3-pack containers can be found here, but I would not recommend them. They are the most expensive (I paid $20 for 7, where otherwise they're a $1 a piece) and one shattered the first day I had them.

u/mealprepbloggirl · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I personally don't recommend the Sistema containers. Each container has five pieces you have to take apart to clean (main piece, lid, rubber gasket, and two clip pieces), and there are too many areas (such as under the lip of the main piece) that stay dirty. After a year of using them daily, I'm looking at getting either these or these.

If it's hard for you to be constantly tracking (I'm working on being strict personally but wow am I bad about it), maybe try meal prep bento boxes? I have these from amazon, and they're really useful in keeping portions where you want them. A decent rule of thumb is about a palm size of meat/chicken/fish/assorted protein accompanied by lots of keto-friendly veggies. If repetition/lack of surprises doesn't bother you, pre-enter meals into your chosen tracker app the night before in some down time, and just eat according to that the next day. Some ketoers like that it helps keep you on track too!

These meal prep containers are excellent for packing lunches. I use them to separate the parts of sandwiches or hamburgers I pack for lunch so that the bread doesn’t get soggy and the veggies stay fresh. You can also make your own protein packs with them by packing hard boiled eggs, hummus and veggies, cheese meat and crackers, etc. You can also save money and room on ice packs by freezing bottles of water or Gatorade and using them to keep your food cold and have a cold drink at lunch time.

A riff on Budget Bytes' chili garlic tofu bowls with steamed broccoli and some bean sprouts I sauteed with garlic and ginger and soy sauce and rice vinegar. I doubled the recipe, we ate two for dinner and I packed seven (only five fit into the picture) into dishes for lunches.

In the bags are breakfast sandwiches. I cracked a dozen eggs into a greased 9x13 baking pan and mixed with milk, salt and pepper, and 1/2 a block of frozen, thawed, drained spinach. Baked until set then sprinkled with shredded cheddar cheese so that it adhered into a nice layer. Then I toasted a dozen english muffins while the eggs cooled, cut the eggs into 12 squares, and assembled everything.

The great thing about prep after surgery is the small amount of food. More fits into the fridge. You cook once a week or every 2 weeks and just heat it up.

Get some containers you can microwave. I bought some cheap containers on amazon with compartments so the stuff does not mix (in case of souce/gravy) or invest in some that last longer. These

The first time I prepped I made some meat plus sides of cauliflower and broccoli. It started to smell badly after day 4 in the fridge so I had to throw it away. I should have frozen the food and not just used the fridge. I think if you don't eat it in 3 days you should freeze it.

Perfect for prep is shredded chicken (or beef or pork) or meatloaf or steak (cut in very small pieces). The shredded chicken you can mix with all kinds of tastes like teriyaki or curry... whatever you prefer. It all heats up nicely in the microwave.

Stews or soups are good too. Instantpot is your friend. I use mine for all the meat or vegetables. Especially in the beginning you need as moist food as possible. Dry chicken will not sit well and if it is in a stew or with some liquid it works.

Some stuff is just too much work to prep. I make them fresh like eggs for breakfast.

This is how I started but I got lazy. It is a lot of work to prep for 2 weeks. That whole day is gone.

So... What I do now... And that is just me. I have small 5 oz plastic cups with lids. I put the meat in there and freeze those. Or I make little meatloafs (8 loaf sheet pan) with turkey and freeze those. Vegetables I buy now in a steamer bag (I got too lazy to prep vegetables) but one steamer lasts for 2 meals. And when it's time for dinner or lunch I just grab one meat item and a steamer and am good. The meat container I have already calculated and added to MyFitnessPal App. One click and the diary is done.

Variety is important or it gets boring. And... All this is for the stage when you can have all foods. :-)

I hope you did not want to prep for the whole family... That would be soooo much work. I am single so it is easier but really... Instantpot.

If you're only 22, you should eventually just lose the weight. I know easier said than done. I myself lost 8 lbs from Jan 4th to now using an app (called noom, but I'd not advocating them, it's just what I used). What helped me was finding 'healthier' replacements for things I couldn't resist.

Like, over the span of 4 month I went from having Chipotle burritos, to the burrito bowls, to bowls with brown rice, bowls with half portion of rice, bowls with no rice, and now I get the salad bowls. I used to Always crave pizza, now when I crave pizza I put mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning on a whole wheat double fiber English muffin, microwave it for 10 seconds and it tastes Exactly like pizza!!! On days where I'm really craving it, I'll have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I also always used to get Cinnabon cravings (880cals per roll), so I started having Cinnabon's cinnamon swirl bread with cream cheese frosting instead (150 cals for 1 slice and 1.5 tbsp of frosting).

I went from drinking soda to drinking diet soda and now I don't drink soda at all. I also highly recommend getting this box from Amazon (snack box with a timer lid so you can control portion control). It's expensive but has helped me SO much!! If you start now you'll probably lose the weight within 2 years. You'll be 24, still young with plenty of time to date and play! Two years will pass anyway so you might as well start... also, walking is underrated exercise. I lost those 8 lbs walking 3-4 miles 2-3 times a week.

Good luck with your date and whatever you decide. At least you're still young :)

u/ChubbsMcLubbs · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

These have been my go to for the past year and I cant go to anything else. Perfect size, freezeable, the lid is super secure, and they stack perfectly. Highly recommended. (Note: for all the packs they include an extra container for free so its actually a 17 pack)

u/blackkittenpresident · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

As someone who does prep for a family of 4 every week I have been using containers like these for years. They're great in the dishwasher and far less expensive then glass. I feel safe with them, and I always have enough.

u/pistachioskiwi · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday
u/aj0220 · 1 pointr/bodybuilding

I bought 48 of these bad boys...

Cost me $55 total but man am I excited to prep my meals for the whole week!

u/WeightLossHobo · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I have 28 oz containers.

These are the perfect size for me. My normal prep is a protein (chicken breast, sirloin, salmon), rice, beans, and a vegetable. I can fit a 700-800 calorie meal easily into my containers. I only prep 10 a week but I have 16 for times if I forget a container somewhere, lose one, break one, or just don't feel like doing the dishes right away. It's nice to have extras and if I want to prep more I can.

u/nodig · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

So I can't speak for everyone but the ones I use are these and these from Amazon. They are microwavable, freezable and dishwasher top rack safe. The only issues I've had with these particular ones is the lids are so hard to get off that I've had a couple where the corners cracked but that's after 6 or so months of use. But look around on amazon, there are ton of different brands and sizes and shapes.

u/wickedr · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I've been using these by Fitpacker and the version with a divider for about 1/2 a year and they've worked well so far. The only issue I've had is sometimes the lid snaps on too tight and it's tough to open back up - one of the lid's lip has cracked this way.

u/noneotherthanozzy · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Got them on Amazon.

u/DearThief · 1 pointr/TeamFawn
  1. I have a crappy mechanical food scale and it's a nightmare. Would 100% recommend getting an electronic one. Salter are good.

  2. I'd never heard of a bullet journal. It doesn't look like it would be great for tracking food - myfitnesspal is your friend - but I'm seriously considering starting one for day-to-day stuff! Might help knock my procrastination on the head...

  3. My SO is bulking and eating 3000 cals a day, I'm eating 1500. He just eats twice as many meals as I do. So I'll go round on an evening, we'll eat dinner together, and then an hour later he'll have something else and I won't. Then the next morning he has an early breakfast, then a second breakfast when I have mine. So perhaps your SO could just eat an extra 300cal meal/a couple of 150cal snacks to make up the difference?

  4. My SO uses these and gets on really well. I just have a few cheap lunch boxes! Stuff like this and this only mostly bought from pound shops. Does the job.
u/RippingAallDay · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

How about these or these?
I've seen them floating around on amazon. I thought the price is fair, but they're more expensive than the MMG containers...and don't come with any food inside.

u/kriegshund · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I'm looking for some meal prep BIFL tupperware. I have these snapware containers (really like them)... but I'd like something like this....

Anyone have a recommendation?

u/xmonster · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

They look like these

u/overthedwaynebowe · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

In the black containers is a Hodge-Podge of vegetables I made in my slow cooker (sweet potato, brussels sprouts, onion, carrots, garlic, and zucchini), black beans/pinto beans with hot sauce, and edamame fettuccine with homemade Chimichurri. I'm not too sure on nutrition facts but it's fairly high in protein as this was my goal.

In the larger red containers is oatmeal I made in my other slow cooker (I substituted the milk for almond milk).

In the smaller red containers is hard boiled eggs.

In the mason jars is "Green Machine" I juiced myself.

I recently switched from an intermittent fasting type diet to 5 small meals type diet so I am still getting adjusted. I am also a vegerarian so that is why you see no meat in the pictures. My plan for daily meals is as follows (I work Monday-Thursday so that's why there is 4 of everything):

  • Breakfast: Oatmeal
  • Snack #1: Juice
  • Lunch: Veggie/Bean/Pasta Meal
  • Snack #2: Hard Boiled Egg
  • Dinner: Salad (not pictured)

    Any recommendations for this first-time meal prepper would be welcomed.
u/Dkelle4 · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I personally use these Three Compartment Meal Prep Haven Containers

They also have them in Two Compartment and Single Compartment

u/lostinthesauuce · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday
u/reclaimingmytime · 1 pointr/xxfitness

Full disclosure, I work from home now, so I'm in the enviable position of having a full-size fridge at my disposal all the time.

Depending on what you do during the day, you could keep food in a work fridge or in a cooler with a cold pack in it. Like the second photo at this link:

Although it sounds like you might be UK based?

Anyway, I would do:

  1. Add in protein powder (peanut butter flavor?) to oatmeal

  2. Depending on how much protein you need, keep the greek yogurt or greek yogurt + 1/2 scoop of protein powder or whatever + some fruit or granola for carbs

  3. Add chicken or cooked egg whites to carrots; add in some fruit for carbs, or a piece of bread/toast

  4. Lunch sounds good

  5. Apple, protein shake, peanut butter (to fit fat macros)

  6. Meat and veggies, add rice/grains/fruit as needed

    For shelf stable protein, you can either lean into protein powders, add in tuna like you said, or maybe do beef jerky or hardboiled egg whites. (Still, could be a lot of eggs depending on how much protein you get.)

    Today's a training day for me, but here's what I'm eating:

    (1) Waking: 1 1/2 scoops egg white protein mixed with iced coffee, 4 rice cakes

    (2) 9:30 Training: 1 1/2 scoops whey protein with 16 oz. Gatorade

    (3) ~1hr post workout: 4 oz. cooked chicken with salsa, 2-3 cups broccoli with lemon and salt (all my fats are at the end of the day right now), 60g jellybeans (because it's best to eat sugar during the post-workout period and also PMS)

    (4) Mid-afternoon: Something like (4 oz. chicken plus an apple plus cut red pepper), (more protein powder mixed into oatmeal plus cut red pepper), (more protein powder mixed with water plus apple plus red pepper)

    (5) Dinner: Probably ground turkey meat in taco seasoning, with a little cheese and 2 small corn tortillas, or over rice, plus peppers on the side--or skip the cheese and do cut veggies plus some veggie dip for fats if I'm sick of peppers (this is just what we have in the house today)

    (6) Bedtime: 1 1/2 scoops casein mixed with water to make a pudding, plus 40g peanut butter and some blueberries (in the pudding) or plums for carbs

    I realize it's a lot of protein powder, between whey, casein, egg white...but also, if it makes your life easier and you can afford it? Just try it out and see how you feel. It's shelf stable, you can down it with water, so it's great for traveling or if your job has you in the car a lot.

    Egg whites cook into oatmeal really nicely. They don't really have a taste, and you can get those refrigerated cartons of just egg whites (at least where I live) which makes it really easy to measure out. Then just mix in whatever else flavors fit your macros--peanut butter, cinnamon, vanilla, berries/fruit, whatever. You can just add the egg whites to the oatmeal before you microwave it. I like to stop it every so often and stir it together for texture uniformity.

    Oh, also, you could get protein bars to help supplement some of the mid-day meals. Like a Clif protein bar plus carrots--shelf stable and probably fits your macros. I think it's like 20g protein per bar...

    Does any of that help?

u/brontosaurus_vex · 1 pointr/slowcooking

I use the black-bottomed take-out containers from Amazon (link).
I like them over regular tupperware containers because you get so many of the same size (I'm often prepping 8-10 meals at once), so they stack well in the freezer. I could buy more durable ones, but that would cost more money. A lot of the time I feel like I use something like this for a while, then decide that I'd like a different size. Or I stop freezing meals for a while.

This way I can use these for a few months, stack them neatly in the freezer and then recycle them when my needs change, and I'm only out $10.

u/exercise4xtrafries · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

I bought a pack of seven on amazon for $10. Here’s the link!

u/MengKongRui · 1 pointr/vegan

True... Maybe you can just use this

u/Chef0053 · 1 pointr/recipes

I have a few for you that I think you could handle. First a couple of tips. if you are only feeding yourself. then recipes for 4 should be cut in half. only the ingredients not the cooking times. If you like them make sure you can freeze them and make a full batch. buy yourself some freezer containers you can freeze your own homemade dinners in. Such as these:

for things like spaghetti casserole etc...
[Single Compartment meal prep containers large]

I have these ones.. They can go straight from the freezer to the micro, and right into the dishwasher. (top rack) they are GREAT!
[1 and 2 compartment meal prep containers]

now for soups and stews etc.. these are great but will melt in the micro if you nuke them more than 55 seconds at a time. They Will NOT leak!
[soup stew and broth containers]

I have not tried these but I will probably get some
[Round Meal Prep]

a couple more tips. buy garlic already minced in the jar, also you can buy chopped onion at the grocery store but it will cost a bit more. will work though until you get the hang of chopping your own.

First lets start with Rotisserie chicken. they are cheap and will make at least 2 to 4 meals. depending on how many you want to feed. you can pick up some boxed mac and cheese, maybe some betty Crocker au gratin or scalloped potatoes to have with the chicken. then the remainder of the chicken can be pulled from the carcass. any full pieces you can put into the meal prep containers with leftover side dishes for lunch etc.. for the remainder of the meat. pick it as clean as you can. toss the carcass. Later you can learn how to make your own broth with it. but that is for another time. (or you can give it to your mom to make broth...)

the rest of the meat, put into a zip lock bag and freeze it for later. this meat can be used in soups, casseroles, tacos burritos etc..

I will post some recipes below for your chicken leftovers.

these could be nice for appy's, served to your friends? or for a dinner or just snacks. and you don't have to use the whole wheat tortilla either.
[Baked Pizza Taquitos]

Leftover Chicken recipes
These Freeze well
[Black Bean Garnachas]

this is made in the crock pot. and it doesn't make a whole bunch. you could probably eat it all in 2 settings if you are a big eater.

If you don't have one, get one they are not expensive. Walmart has them for 18 dollars most of the time. but you do want to get a 6 quart, as most recipes are geared towards that size and you won't have to scale a recipe down to fit in your crock pot.

[Creamy Beef Potato Stew]

you don't have to get the mini meatballs for this. you can cut the full size ones in half, they would work just fine.
[Dump and Bake Meatball and Casserole]

side dish, these can be done in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes
[Parmesan Potatoes and carrots]

[Hamburger Cabbage Casserole]

[Overnight Meatball and Pasta Casserole]

These Freeze well
[Porcupine meatballs]

this is a soup that is easy to put to gather and you can use either ground beef, or leftover cooked beef such as pot roast or even steak if you want.
It makes a HUGE amount it is also freezable.

[Qiuck and easy Vegetable Beef Soup]

another very simple soup (this doesn't make so much, and is also freezable)
If you don't like kale use spinach or any other green you do like.

[Susage, Kale and Bean soup]

this is simple you make a couple of sides, mix this sauce and cook the thighs wow! and freezes fine too.
[Honey Mustard chicken]

Leftover spaghetti with meat sauce can be made into a very filling Spaghetti pie, by adding just a few things. the tricky part is placing the plate face down over the small skillet and turning the spaghetti out onto it then back into the pan uncooked side down to finish. it is so worth it though.

[Spaghetti Pie]

[Pizza Casserole]

for some of that leftover chicken,
[Caesar Chicken pasta Casserole]

[Chicken Alfredo Casserole]

[Adobe Chicken Wraps]

[Chicken Enchilada Foil packs]

Not sure why they call this Turkey Chili since it's made with chicken? but looks good and its fast. would also be freezable.

you could use some of your cooked chicken for this recipe, about 2 cups cut up.
[Fast Turkey Chili]

another use for those meatballs. it's good easy and mostly opening cans and measuring seasonings. and is freezable too.

[meatball Stone Soup]

Don't be afraid of this one. it's easier than it looks and comes to gather pretty quick. it will not freeze well though because of the half & Half. but it is soo good and doesn't make a ton.

[Zuppa Toscana]

I better quit or they will delete this post and you won't get any of these recipes. Good Luck! I hope some of these will work for you!

u/Syuk_Dat_Deke · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I don't take my meals outside of the house either, but I think it's worth it for a few reasons.

You cook once instead of multiple times a day, and you know the calories for that meal.

I have my whole meal in one container. Next week I think I'm going to make burrito bowls so I'll put lettuce and tomatoes in a baggie to mix in after it's heated.

I'd say either a combo of both or go with the non compartment ones. I bought these and they're pretty good.

u/meandrunkR2D2 · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Yes they are and the link is below.
I do believe that a person could find similar or better ones for much less through a restaurant supply store as they seem to be fairly similar to the take home boxes. But these are a good quality and clean very well and have held up to my meals and reheating the past month.

Have you checked Amazon?

u/reestronaut · 1 pointr/bifl

I meal prep and store my food in these containers and only these containers. I've been using them since January and have only had one break. They freeze and microwave well, so I just eat straight out of the packaging. Maybe get a couple packs so you can use them as plates or bowls if you decide to make something else, and you can still use them for tupperware as needed.

They also store well because they fit together very snugly, unlike other bulky tupperwares.

*edit: how much room do you have for storage in your van? I want to renovate a van like this as I travel often and sleep in my car to save money, and I was hoping to take out all of the backseats and mounting my futon to the back, perhaps lofting it for storage and a fridge(?) underneath.

Also, perhaps get a yeti cooler to keep things hot if you make hot food and plan on eating it later?

u/bluecirc · 1 pointr/loseit

I have this one. Bought it in April and use it everyday Mon-Fri. I use these containers and these ice packs.

u/kcunning · 1 pointr/declutter

I use these:

We've been using them for years, and they're pretty much the only tupperware I'll buy now. If something is too big to fit in one container, I break it up, which ends up making us more likely to eat it.

u/PumpkinQueen · 1 pointr/whole30

It seems like you are in pretty good shape in terms of new cooking supplies and grocery lists. My biggest piece of advice would be to plan, plan, plan for the week! Go to r/MealPrepSunday for tips on how to meal plan. I use a OneNote notebook to track everything...what I'm eating for each meal, what I need to buy at the grocery store, my favorite recipes and snacks, etc. If you want I can share with you what I use. But I think a key for you will be to make sure you plan ahead and figure out what you need for the week.

Also make sure you have plenty of tupperware if you do bulk prep...I currently use these.

It's these, but I almost would prefer to switch to a more open container without dividers, because the dividers take up so much room.

u/bigheartlittlechest · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday
u/Burrowing_camel · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I got these containers from Amazon. They stack up nicely and are supposedly dishwasher and microwave safe; I'll see how they hold up long term.

u/BentBarViking · 1 pointr/loseit

I have a similar issue. I work right next to the Cafe at work and it always smells like food and there are vending machines right in the hall outside of the office. The culture here also doesn't help. Everyone always wants to order in lunch on Fridays and or go out and drink after work. Meal prep has been the best possible thing to help fend off the cravings/temptations. I am a personal fan of anything that can be cooked in a Crock-Pot/slowcooker. For lunch I normally buy my desired amount of chicken/meat of choice for the week.(Mon-Fri) and I cook it on Sundays. I also have a rice cooker and I use that to make enough rice for my meals as well. Then I bought these: Freshware 15-Pack 3 Compartment Bento Lunch Boxes with Lids - Stackable, Reusable, Microwave, Dishwasher & Freezer Safe - Meal Prep, Portion Control, 21 Day Fix & Food Storage Containers (32oz) as my container. I put my food in the freezer and pull it out in the morning before work. Microwave for lunch and eat.

Example food for a work day:

breakfast (6:30 AM): 3 hard boiled eggs, 1 banana, 1 serving of Almonds. 3 cups of coffee.(black with cinnamon) ~490 cals

Snack 1 (9:00 AM): 1 scoop protein shake. 120 cals.

Lunch (~11:30 AM): .5lbs of chicken with peppers and .25 cup of brown rice. ~422 cals

Coffee (Noonish): One k cup of whatever I have on hand. ~0-70 cals

Snack 2: (~3:00 PM) I'll eat something small around 200cal. I like Siggis yogurt or a banana with peanut butter. ~200 cals

Dinner (6-9 PM): something I have at home that fits into my calories. On days I workout I will also have a second protein shake. ~400-600cals

Notes: I drink a lot of water 1+ gallons a day. I recommend flavored selzer water while at work. The bubbles make it had to drink too fast and the flavor makes it a nice treat. I eat around 1600-2000 calories a day depending on my workout. I will post more tips for Crock-Pot cooking if anyone wants it.

u/GhazaliGTE · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Thank you! All there is to it is to do it! I only have my dinner plate left after my workout tonight, everything has been going well! These containers are holding up great, but of course this is the first use. They held up in the microwave and I don't see any deformations. The lids clip on tightly and securely! They stack very well with the little ridges they have on them, I don't want to speak prematurely but I think I recommend them haha here's the link again:

u/iaintjewish · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Thanks! I got them on Amazon, they're not the greatest quality but they do the job. I figure if I get into meal prepping enough, I might buy some better ones. But these are super cheap and work pretty well!

u/justpickanyusername · 1 pointr/askMRP

I would lead here again. Really it is yours and her only shot. Tell her we are going to be healthy and not have health issues when we get older. Throw away all of the shit in the house. Meal prep. Go to Amazon and pick these up. Put yourself and her on a strict diet and an exercise regime. The good news is you will drop even further down from 17% and she will start shedding the pounds as well.

She might call you insensitive dick, but do you really care? Your wife can't weigh more than you do.

What did she weigh when you first met? That is probably a reasonable expectation for a goal to meet. You should have that be your goal as well if you aren't there (with the exception of added muscle weight).

It will take her time, but hell, if you eat clean, hit your daily calories, and get her lifting it won't take too terribly long.

She will shit test you and outwardly hate you, but deep down she knows she is overweight and may be looking for leadership and a kick in the ass.

You need strong frame to continuously drag her ass a long in the process.

After seeing my obese father-in-law get diabetes and have two knee surgeries from excess weight I decided I was going to stay healthy. That was even before MRP. Now, it has taken a whole new meaning with lifting, but she is too big.

Good luck bro.

u/lunaris1013 · 1 pointr/keto

I use these containers for my meal prep and put half of them in the freezer so I don't have to worry about fridge life. They're also good to take to work because they're light. And if something does go bad in the fridge you don't feel bad tossing one out.

u/craychel · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Sometimes the containers will tell you how much each compartment holds. Like these from Amazon, the larger compartment holds 16 oz and the smaller compartment holds 9 oz.

u/embersue · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/AgonyWilford · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I recommend glass ones like this.

They can be used in the oven as well as microwave, dishwasherz freezer etc. Plus you can see what's in them. (And less plastic, even though the lid is plastic.)

You can also get ones with dividers, but I've never felt the need.

u/WeAreTheMassacre · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Pretty sure its Prep Naturals.

They dont stack with the lids off really, and if they do it's so minimal that I wouldnt feel secure with them since its heavy glass. With the lids on they stack okay, but definitely not "nesting" like you see from nearly every big brand of Tupperware. I have the one compartment and two compartment versions, and they're great if you have the space. I've never really seen nesting versions.

Thanks! Found this in the suggested items which is in stock from Amazon:

u/lyista · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

One of my favorite budget recipes is hippie stew. One can corn, can of black beans rinsed, one can diced petite tomatoes not drained, a pound of whatever meat you want, taco seasoning and cheese on top if you want it.

I cook the meat first until it's done. Then I add everything else. For the seasoning, I usually have the big container from Costco. I start with 3/4 cup and increase to 1.5 cups depending on how spicy I want it. I also add enough water to make it look some what runny and cook it for a few more minutes to thicken. Add more water if you over thicken.

We usually serve it on rice but will eat it as is. It serves our family of 4 for two meals.

For the containers, I have these.

They have been leak proof for me and I put them in the top rack of dishwasher. No melting or warping yet and I've had them about 6 months.

For planning, I look at sales for the grocery stores. If I need protein that is what I look at first since that is where the biggest chunk of my budget goes. Hamburger is usually on sale somewhere and I will get split chicken breasts and just cut them up. If I want steak I usually get sirloin,but only if on sale.

I will then get on Pinterest and look for recipes. Allrecipes also has a function you can add your ingredients in and it will give you recipes with them.

I can definitely find a dark spot in the house that will hold mid 60s within a few degrees year round, I was just worried because nowhere in my house holds an even temperature. If the temperature isn't staying where I want it to, that can definitely be the next step.

That's my next question. This is bigger and cheaper than the largest Brilliance that I can find on Amazon:

Any thoughts on that vs. the Brilliance?

As for that last bit, I figured, but I need to be careful with that. Thank you for the help!

Ordered my standard Tupperdor set-up last week off of Amazon; Sistema 236 oz Klipit and two Spanish cedar trays. I have four identical set-ups already. It shows up, and the trays don’t fit. I chalk it up to manufacturing tolerances and order another set-up, but from different vendors. Same thing! I know lots of other people have used this, so I want to give everyone a heads up and see what other Tupperdor containers y’all are using. These are NOT the FESS trays, but again, ones I've used successfully for four other set-ups.

A small piece of non-adhesive shelf liner (something like this) works better than a wet towel at keeping the cutting board from sliding around. It also cleans more easily and dries more quickly and takes up less space when it's not being used.

u/kcamrn · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards


Only this.

Cut a small square that's the size of your keyboard, and you'll forget it's even there. Plus, it's relatively cheap and you get a shitload of it. I use it in my drawers, on my desk, and even under my PC case for extra grip without scratching up my desk. Shit is the best yo.

Sure, you can buy a mouse mat or something for it. But they get dirty or they're bigger than you want. With this you just cut it and forget it. Need another one? Cut another one. No problem bro, you've got a huge-ass roll of it.

u/MorningStarshine · 1 pointr/PolishGauntlet

Get some drawer grippy liners. You should be able to find something in the kitchen aisle of most department stores. Cut it to fit and it should help everything from sliding around. If you slide the whole helmer around, or close a drawer really rough, you will probably still knock things over, but it will be cushioned. I haven't had any problems with mine over the last 8 months or so, and no broken polishes!

So sorry about your lost ones, hopefully they are replaced quickly. Good luck!

u/youshutyomouf · 1 pointr/Multicopter

For my micro quads, these thin straps meant for cable management have worked really well. Use a strip of this stuff between the Velcro and the battery for grip. Over hundreds of flights I've only ejected the battery a couple times and only when the strap actually breaks in the crash.

u/linusthedog · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Do you have any kind of mat between the board and your desk? In my experience, a lot of the most unpleasant mechanical keyboard sounds actually come from keystrokes resonating/vibrating through the desk. I have a sheet of this under my board, cut perfectly so you can't even see it. Also, I'm not sure how much room there is between the TADA68 PCB and the bottom of the plastic case, but with most boards, there's enough room to throw a sheet of this on the bottom of the inside of the case, which will dampen some of the hollow vibrations you get when typing.

u/glyphx42 · 1 pointr/beatsaber

Thanks! If you decide to give it a try I used shelf liner like this.

I cut a rectangle so that it was almost as long as the battery and wide enough that it goes about three-quarters of the way around.... I insert the shelf liner into the battery compartment making sure to slide it underneath the spring, then insert the battery and try to force it up away from the spring as much as possible.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that the new touch controller is coming out they learn from their mistake and have the battery face the opposite direction so that the centrifical force works WITH the spring rather than against it.

u/dick122 · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

I think you're referring to the smaller holes within the larger holes? The only 5/8" drill bit I had was a spade bit so I just went with it. The smaller holes are very narrow and I'd considered puttying them before staining but decided they make for good drains to keep stray juice from puddling up. The padding I'm putting on the bottom is actually coming from some Easy-Shelf liner so any liquid can just drip straight through. Everything is a pretty loose fit so the eGos actually sit at a very slight angle.

All that makes it sound like a lot of thought went into this. Actually, I was grabbing some stuff from Lowe's, saw a bunch of these blocks on an end cap, and thought they'd work better than a coffee mug.

u/haharisma · 1 pointr/fountainpens

If it didn't come out right away, don't rush things. It's not impossible to break the feed. Check out, for instance, this video. You may want to use a piece of the rubber shelf liner, like this or a needle grabber for better grip.

u/HoochCow · 1 pointr/EliteDangerous

On a serious note to this comment. If you have carpet and have to use pedals because your hotas doesn't have a twist yaw then that stuff will keep your pedals put.

I taped it to the underside of my joystick, throttle, and pedals. My pedals don't slide on the carpet, and my joystick and throttle won't slide on my desk.

u/phineas1134 · 1 pointr/boatbuilding

Thanks for details. I bet if you added some adhesive velcro to your PFD cushion and to the top of your cooler you might be able to fix that sliding problem. Another option might be to put down bit of non slip shelf liner between the cooler and cushion.

u/agent211 · 1 pointr/ACL

As for the brace digging in, try pieces of the foamy-style of shelf liner to ease hot spots.

It will provide some padding and also help the brace from sliding around.

You could get one of these. It’s what I use to self regulate. You could always break it of course. However I find it hard to justify doing that because then it’ll hit me in the wallet. There are more expensive timed locks but I find that this one is enough of a deterrent for me.

If I was self-locking, I would buy a Kitchen Safe. I would set it for 24 hours or so, which would allow me to unlock my cage, shower, re-lock, and re-set the safe for the next day. If you feel like you might not be able to behave yourself, you can always take a very cold shower. :)

u/sentamalin · 1 pointr/flightattendants

I'm omnivorous, here, but I try to pack some healthier options whenever I can. Of course, I say that but what I do end up bringing still has a pretty high carbohydrate content (I can't get over my love of rice and noodles as a staple food).

In addition to beans and lentils (preferably with a combination of a grain to help balance out your amino acid profile), I recommend not being afraid of adding healthy fats to your food because it'll keep you sated for longer, and if you're careful about calorie watching, is more dense. In practice: I like avocados, and I use the keto trick of adding some coconut oil to airplane coffee to add fat to my breakfast.

Find ways to add fiber and proteins, secondly, to your meal considerations because both will help you feel full, like healthy fats will. Low-sodium jerky, trail mix, and protein/fiber bars are my usual no-refrigeration go-tos for those. Carbs are still necessary, but if possible get them from veggies, and you'll get nutrients to boot. Carrots, celery, broccoli, and grape tomatoes are my usual mainstays because they keep well in not-ideal coolers--especially paired with some dressing to add some fat content to your snacking.

If you don't mind using some of your layover/rest time preparing your meals for the next day and you don't want to be stuck with just the hotel microwave (if it's even provided) I recommend--like others--investing in a HotLogic Mini. I recommend going to their website to buy it because they often have sales. Your other fellow flight attendants occasionally get coupon codes for them, too, if you ask around; and sometimes they offer a BOGO Free deal. Depending on how you meal-prep (for curries, pilafs, ratatouille, etc I just cut up veggies and proteins into a Ziploc bag and spice the bag) it's as easy as putting it all in a Pyrex glass container (one of the HotLogic sets come with a glass container) and plugging the HotLogic in. Recipes that work in a crock pot work best in it, in my opinion. I've also used the Joseph Joseph M-Cuisine Cooking Set to cook during layovers, and I prefer it when I'm making pasta, noodles, or rice dishes.

To keep food warm, I've been using an insulated lunch pail like the Zojirushi Mr. Bento as a complement to my cooler. The inner containers can keep food hot/cold for around 8-12 hours while the top container typically remains at room temperature. It's a little thing, but having a hot meal in-between a long 12-hour day with no time to buy expensive airport food is a wonderful way to keep your morale up.

u/BendWithTheWind · 1 pointr/fasting

I lift outside of fasts and still lift during fasts. I've learned to take the dramatic (so far 5% decline in rep max and weights) lifting progression declines as part of my current fast (passed 14 days mark, and counting). It helps me control appetite; the soreness after a good session makes it easier to ignore temporary blips of appetite urges. Most workouts are around 2-3 am in the morning; the large offset to the normal meal period seems to throw off my body's programming to expect a meal after a workout.

<20 g per day net carb keto diet. Track my macros; 23/1 and 20/4 really streamlines the bookkeeping. Supplement each day with 10 g BCAA (30 g on workout days), 5 g creatine, 4.4-8.8 g Vega Hydrator electrolyte, both outside and during fasts.

Try to get in 8-10 hours of sleep every night.

I'm diagnosed Type 2 diabetic, but within the margin of lab measurement error for pre-diabetic range last year, and with fasting will drop out of that range into remission this year. But I still test my blood glucose between 5-10 times per day, some days with multiple different brands of meters.

I drink 4 liters/quarts of plain tap water per day. During fasts this will go up to 8 liters/quarts; I don't pee out as much as I drink, so I'm probably exhaling all that extra water.

I travel some for work. Have to be social over many meals with my client-facing activities when I travel. There is almost always an iceberg or romaine lettuce salad option no matter where we end up, and no one bats an eyelash at that. Outside of fasts, I pack and use an ultra-portable food scale and a "portable oven". The latter is more of a slow-cooker than an oven per-se; it only goes to 150° F. Toss some protein (usually chicken or beef) in the night before, and it is ready for me the next evening. Broccoli florets and grated Parmesan in the microwave (every hotel either has microwaves in the commons area or the rooms), and I'm good to go.

Measure and track various metrics to guide my body fat percentage lower. Goal next year is to drop to 12% by various caliper measurements to justify cost of a DEXA scan and start fine-tuning. I've had to stop using keto sticks because they only test acetoacetate and I'm keto-adapted to where those drop off and I'm only producing beta-hydroxybutyrate as markers, and am looking for a home-based test that's accurate (the Abbott Labs unit on the market I didn't find to be accurate).

I stay mindful of the enormous amount of commercial inducement behind most food "programming" in public spaces now. It helped me learn and take control of my psychological conditioning to food, and makes it far easier to ignore most enticements to eat when I don't have to eat for nutritional needs. I also remind myself that in my work travels entertaining clients I've already eaten the absolute, quintessential best of nearly every kind of food one is likely to find in daily (and not-so-daily) life, and no matter what is placed in front of me, I don't need to eat it for entertainment/enjoyment value, only for nutrition. The only exceptions I will make to this are true once-in-a-lifetime culinary experiences like sushi at Sukiyabashi Jiro that I haven't done yet. Fasting is an enormous aid in reinforcing my mindfulness and attitude.

I learned to eat to my macros and calculated TDEE requirements. I do once a week cooking of my proteins, portioning out during that session, and extremely simple meal plans. It helps that I'm not subject to taste fatigue; I don't mind at all eating the exact same menu for weeks and months on end. These days I will usually have sauteed ground beef (from the fattiest one I can find) in a patty form, broccoli florets (I cut what little stems I can find on even these florets, as that is the part that packs in a bunch of carbs), all cooked in bacon or beef grease, and grated Parmesan for Meal Type 1, and slow-cooked chicken breast and olive oil mayonnaise for Meal Type 2. I rapidly portion out the mayo, cheese and florets on a kitchen scale with a tare function. I will experiment with duckonnaise and baconnaise next, as I'm trying to move away from packaged foods where I can.

I look for the cheapest coupon offerings of proteins that I can find in the weekly circulars when I need to stock up, then buy an entire month's worth in a single trip, and cram it all in my deep freeze. Between this and once a week cooking, I have freed up a ton of time to enjoy with my family and not detract from my business.

u/ricecake88 · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I came across this when looking at a list of items to use for travel. Not sure this would keep your cold food cold, but it would definitely fit the bill in keeping things warm, as long as you have access to an electrical plug.

u/quixoticx · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

I use a lunchbox that you can plug in to warm up your food, and I can't recommend it enough! Amazon reviews say its great for truck drivers, so I assume you can plug it into a van's car charging thing. Alternatively rice meals do well in a thermos!

This is the one I use. Works with any container, and has been going strong for 2+ years. Even bought the casserole size for dinners at home (connectioned to a timer or smart plug)

As for recipes: all kinds of stuff, it doesn't have to be special. Lasagna, enchiladas, soups, stews, chicken, brisket, omlets, even the occasional MRE side dish pouch. It's just a tiny hot plate in a fool bag set to 180F so it doesn't cook out the water or overcook the food.

Things sound very similar to what my wife deals with......we've even gone so far as to ensure that everything is not made on shared equipment. I contacted Penzey's spices a couple of years back and worked with them to develop testing procedures and standards. I learned that b/c wheat is so prevalent in our food supply....that almost anything can be made on shared equipment. I had been ordering online via Amazon to get the Spicely brand of spices...but they are so expensive! Thankfully a new brand has popped up in the stores called Badia....they are certified GF.

I also wanted to mention we do travel a lot...which has been a lot tougher, and we have tried a ton of different ways to travel with our own food. One device that has been a huge help has been the Hot can find it here:
It is awesome...the food we put in is at a great temperature every time! My wife even started taking it to work to use with her lunch.

We don't eat out at too many places except for Da Luciano's in Rivergrove....they are awesome! They truly understand cross contamination. Make sure you make a reservation before going...b/c they are usually very busy.

We find the high end fine dining places do a really good job...but who can afford those?

One other I wanted to add is my wife recently figured out that dairy was causing a ton of inflammation. After some looks like a lot of celiacs have dairy issues.

If you ever have any other questions...please let me know. I know how hard it was to go through...and we didn't have any, and we had to learn it on the fly. Always feel free to reach back should feel real proud of all the progress you've made to become a happier and healthier person!

u/Munchkingrl · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Depending on how long it is from when you leave home until when you eat you could just bring something you don't mind eating at room temp.

My old office only had 2 microwaves for over 100 people, probably over 150. The office before that had 2-4 and for a few months none. Needless to say there was always a wait at lunch time. I just started eating my food room temp.

Obviously not everything tastes as good at room temp. I've had good luck with Japanese bento style meals; rice, veg, a bit of meat. Just bento cookbook is a good resource. She has tips for making ahead and freezing parts of the meals as well.

If you have time to cook something quick or heat up some soup a good lunch jar will keep it warm until it's time to eat. It great for pasta and sauce.

For a heartier meal and/or more variety mr bento can't be beat. The stuff at the bottom stays warmest. Again it requires some prep time in the morning though

I actually make bento-like lunches. The whole family has bento lunchboxes like this.

I then usually have some chopped raw veggies (red or green peppers, celery, etc). Some meat slices from a pork or beef roast or seasoned chicken breast. Stuffed olives, pickles, or the like in another container. And the last container has greens or boiled eggs or even cheese slices.

Very often though, I just make a killer meaty salad. I prep all the items that go in it on Sunday and assemble in the morning. Takes me about 5 minutes for 2 people.

Perhaps look at r/Bento. Traditionally eaten cold and there's lots of ideas there.

As for salads, I've been eating chickpeas lately as I find they're pretty filling.

As far as I know its not sold in Ottawa, but I bought a Zojirushi Mr. Bento which has been absolutely amazing. I know it isn't cheap, but it has been a real game changer for lunch. I heat stuff up in the morning and come 2-3pm its still hot. I rock a Zojirushi coffee mug to and I need to make my coffee 4-5 hours previous before I can really slurp it back. I can't say enough good things about their products.

I realize you said they don't shop online much and if this stuff is sold in Ottawa then I would definitely recommend it. That said, I would still throw it out there to them as an idea because really, their products are life changing.

Lansky makes a nice sharpening kit for under $20.

Lansky 4-rod Turn Box Knife Sharpener

u/definitelynotaspy · 1 pointr/Frugal

If you buy a crock stick sharpener (one example), you can sharpen them yourself. The steel Victorinox uses takes an edge really well. You can get them sharp enough to shave with in maybe five minutes, tops.

u/Dag3n0 · 1 pointr/knives

If it is only for regular maintenance i.e. that the edge is only slightly dull the sharpmaker as is is ok. But if it ever gets really dull or a chip it will take forever and a day with s110v to get the edge back.

A cheaper alternative but with more obtuse angle options that works the same way is available here from lansky

And I have just seen there is also a diamond version

u/fuzzyharmonica · 1 pointr/sousvide

Cheap but excellent knife sharpener to go with the knife.

u/9inger · 1 pointr/knifeclub

Is this the one?

u/xtremepado · 1 pointr/knives

You can't go wrong with the Spyderco Tenacious. Only $35 but it performs like a $100 knife. When I got mine I was very impressed by the quality. The handle has good ergonomics and the blade is a decent steel. It is a great slicer and workhorse!

A good entry-level sharpening kit is the Lansky TurnBox. It was my first sharpening system and it will keep your knife razor sharp. It only has medium and fine grit ceramic rods, but as long as you don't let your knife get too dull you can easily maintain it. There is a slightly more expensive turnbox that has coarse diamond rods that would be better for bringing very dull knives back to life.

u/lowlife9 · 1 pointr/knives

You can't get any easier or cheaper than a Lansky Turnbox.

u/diablo_man · 1 pointr/knives

Ive got the same system, and it works well enough, though a bit of a pain for frequent touch ups. Its very simple to use.

though, for your purposes, the Lansky Croc sticks might be better. its very cheap only 20 bucks or so.

The spyderco sharpmaker is the same sort of thing, though higher quality. of course it costs a few times more, at 60-70 bucks.

those hold the rod/stones at the right angles to sharpen at, and you just hold the knife vertical and draw them down, swapping sides. its very possible with both to get extremely sharp edges quickly.

u/why-not-zoidberg · 1 pointr/knives

Easiest way, but it's a bit over 15, is to get a cheap angled rod set-up. Cheaper than that is buying a small sharpening stone or diamond pad.

u/SirRipo · 1 pointr/AskCulinary

For a buck or two more you can get a much better edge on your steel. If you've spent any serious money on your knives, don't ruin them on a pull-through sharpener like that. Here's a basic 2-stone kit for about the same price as the big one. Or this Lansky 4-rod crock box if you want a "pull-through" style. For a few bucks more ($20 or so) you can get a slightly better Japanese stone set. If you want something more "pull-through" style you can get the [WorkSharp Field sharpener](} for $30 that will get you consistent angles.

u/TheStuffle · 1 pointr/EDC

Do yourself a favor and pick up a decent sharpening system. That two weeks could have been 5 minutes!

You don't have to spend a ton, here's a good one for under $20. Or there is the Spyderco Sharpmaker for around $60. No skill required for either to put a nice edge on your blade.

u/gonzolahst · 1 pointr/knifeclub

I'm wondering if some crock sticks would work well for a hawkbill blade?

u/JayEarth · 1 pointr/knives

I know you said you don't have the money for the Spyderco set, but have you seen this sharpener from Landsky? It's really inexpensive and functions the same way as the Sharpmaker.

u/pseudonym001 · 1 pointr/Cooking

I feel like I should point out that there are so many ways to go wrong with knife sharpeners. The pull-through ones are garbage. Get a crock stick sharpener like this if you're going that route.

u/OtherwiseASandwich · 1 pointr/videos

I don't even suggest freehand sharpening to a beginner if it's a knife they even remotely care about or want to actually be able to use, because that's a fast way for someone to fuck up a knife, and beginner sharpeners usually really fuck it up.

I'm suggesting that at the minimum, go with a semi-guided setup. Lansky's Crock Stick sharpener is only $17, and using it is literally just "hold knife so it is straight up and down, and then push down and pull back against the sticks". It's very little effort, and is the stepping stone towards freehand sharpening by building up the muscle memory to hold a knife in place.

If there is something you do or use every single day, to me, it is worth spending at least a little extra time/money/effort at some point to make the experience less begrudging to do.

I have sharpened many, many knives for people. People that are very much the "average" home cook. No crazy edges, either. Just something that is easily achievable and maintainable by a casual person. Every time, they have told me that it's a better edge than what they have had before ever, and that they don't feel like they're fighting to cut the food they're cutting/prepping, and because of that, it lets them enjoy the process of cooking more. Needing less effort and fewer strokes to cut something cleanly goes a long way towards making people not dread meal preparation.

Is there a point of diminishing returns on sharpening a knife? Of course. You can sharpen a knife to the point where it will want to cut straight in and through everything it touches, which is bad. But it doesn't mean that you should just be satisfied with a barely-serviceable edge just because it's easy to do and does the bare minimum.

It's not about being obsessed, it's about wanting to do something properly.

u/Mack_Kohl · 1 pointr/EDC

Go with something from Kershaw. I would buy the chill. And get yourself an inexpensive ceramic sharpening kit as well. I recommend this one for your needs.

You should get a banana holder, such as this. It will stop your bananas from browning faster on the sides that are in contact with the ground, as seen in the picture.

u/TheShotRock · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Haha! In my case, I basically have everything I need. The things I do want are impractical, inappropriate, or intangible, i.e. a house, a Tesla S, a kind word. I am basically satisfied with the things in my life. Maybe your GF feels the same way. Or maybe she doesn't need a banana holder.

u/Shadow703793 · 1 pointr/lifehacks

Most headphone holders are over priced (ie. $25+) imo. A cheap solution is to use a banana holder like this. You can find these at most stores for around $5-15. And these are metal and heavier compared to the usually plastic headphone holders.

I have one and I freaking love it. The app has worked perfectly for me too. Meat comes out tender and surprisingly, the steaks are to perfect temp just as the app shows.

I purchased this and this for the lid and container. They work great. I just set it on top of a cutting board so it’s not directly on the counter top and sous vide away.

u/random-information · 1 pointr/sousvide

Two different bins in the pic. 8(back) and 12(front) quarts. You can tell the diameter of the hole is different because the Anova is further into the bin. Waterflow is not restricted. Use the clamp to score/trace the hole. It is soft enough to cut with a sharp paring knife. A file to smooth out the edges would be helpful. Depending on how exact your hole is, it can be suspended via the holes friction.

u/_sandwiches · 1 pointr/personalfinance

Shouldn't really matter since only the water will touch it, but grab one of these. They're used in commercial kitchens all the time. I have a 12qt, I think, and can comfortably fit 2-3 ziploc gallon bags, each with 2 chicken breasts or steaks.

Grab a lid if you're doing long cooks, helps with evaporation. Cling wrap or ping-pong balls also works.

u/IwishIknewmorenow · 1 pointr/sousvide

Simple Rubbermaid. Looking for ideas to not have to use chip clips.

u/arth33 · 1 pointr/sousvide

I think I have that exact same one and it's great. The best part is that it has little feet on the bottom to protect the counter from the heat (something the ever popular rubbermaid countainer is missing). If you're thinking about getting the lid too (I'd recommend it), be warned that it's not as easy to cut without tools (I have a bandsaw so I used that, but a cheap handheld coping saw would work too).

Overall, works great.

u/newhopehunter · 1 pointr/sousvide


12 quart is generally fine but they offer larger sizes if you prefer.

u/YellowSea11 · 1 pointr/Sous_Vide

I got this:
It's got a hole where I can put the sous vide and it's got measurements. And someone said they went up to 210 degrees .. for 24 hours .. so that seems good to me.

u/MasterCookSwag · 1 pointr/Cooking

C/p from another comment:

I use a joule and am quite happy. It's compact and has a bigger heating element than most of the competition. The one drawback is it's app controlled only which can be wonky but I don't mind.

I use a Rubbermaid bin I got on Amazon with a lid cut for the joule and it works perfectly. The whole setup was probably less than $250 too.

here is a chuck roast I did at 135 for 24 hours. It was positively the best chuck roast I've personally made. Simple recipe too: salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary and that's it.

E: here is the lid and here is the container. They also have different sizes if you want larger or smaller. I'll sometimes use a pot if I'm making something quick like eggs but for longer cooks this works pretty well. Plus I can just drop it in the sink which helps my paranoia about leaving it on all day/night.

u/edstewbob · 1 pointr/sousvide

For my Anova PC I use the Rubbermaid 3 gallon space saver: and the lid which is soft enough to cut with a knife: I may eventually get a larger unit but for now this is what I have. I also ordered the Sousvide Supreme rack but have not received it yet.

u/SchlongGarage · 1 pointr/sousvide

You should worry about the plastic first and foremost, and secondly that's pretty small.

I have this. Sometimes depending what I am cooking that isn't big enough.

u/CaptainTime · 1 pointr/sousvide

My first attempt at sous vide was on the stove top with a digital thermometer but I couldn't control the temperature prercisely enough.

So I purchased an Anova Precision Cooker and that worked excellent. Started with pots but found them not large enough so I purchased this Rubbermaid 12 quart commercial container:

This combo is working excellently for me. I use it about 2-3 times a week.

The biggest "threat" to coffee is oxygen. The better you can prevent oxygen from getting in contact with it the longer it will last. A nice option that I use at home is the Airscape canister. Really smart design. Here's the link: Airscape Coffee and Food Storage Canister, 64 oz - Patented Airtight Lid Preserves Food Freshness - Stainless Steel - Brushed Steel

u/my45acp1911 · 1 pointr/roasting

I've used the Airscape for years. I recommend the brushed steel. Reviews state the colors wear off. Mine still looks new.

What isn't obvious from some pictures is the plunger you push down to bean level, pushing out excess air. The clear lid has a valve to allow CO2 to vent.

u/ModernCannabist · 1 pointr/trees

One of the most common questions I'm asked as how to store cannabis for both short and extended periods of time. I keep most of mine in Thermous TherMax containers. You can find these in most camping stores, or even in the camping isle of most department stores. Here's one on amazon.

These are perfect for storage of buds from 1 - 8 months; you won't notice much loss in terpenes, and they won't become much drier. The main reason behind this is the vacuum seal lid, and the insulated walls, which will keep the inside from heating. Now, of course you want to store for long term in larger containers that won't be opened other than to fill the small ones that are to be opened more often. This will really help preserve their state.

For longer storage we can look too the food industry, which has been making huge jumps forward in preservation / freshness. You can use a chamber sealer, and add a flush of nitrogen to push the oxygen out, if you have a chamber sealer with a gas injection port. Although perhaps the best option is a rigid container that can withstand the atmospheric pressure caused by connection a vacuum sealer. A great example is Gastronorm containers which can have a special lid affixed to them, that allows connection of a vacuum hose. An example can be found here.

u/ThereisnoTruth · 1 pointr/AskReddit

You might want to consider some Thermos insulated food containers. They will not keep your soup hot for a year, but they should do quite well at keeping your food at safe temperatures through even a very hot day and at night it will go back to normal temp and then be ready for the next day again. Also look into your water storage - water will be a lot more important to your survival than food.

u/zem · 1 pointr/Frugal

invest in a hot food container with multiple compartments (like this one for example). put a hot starch in one container, and a hot gravy dish in the other. combine and eat. rice and curry would work well, for instance, or pasta and tomato sauce, or bread rolls and chili. just make sure to have it really hot before filling the thermos.

u/skeever2 · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy


Seems to work the best for me. I mix and match depending on what I have to pack, and I can really make anything without too much trouble. I love that they have cutlery built in. Most of the time I use the thermos for yogurt or soup and it's still hot or cold when I need it. I also have a larger food jar from the same brand, and I use it when I'm working a longer shift or When I want to pack chilli or pasta as my main course. I really can't recommend the thermos's enough. They never leak.

u/bgdish · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

I can't believe nobody has posted this... Trust me, this is the best way for you. Buy this (I found mine at Walmart) and put one of the spiral-sphere things that you use in blender bottles. Add your ingredients, close lid, shake, boom. Nice and frothy, just as if you had blended it - way easier, though.

Couple more points, just so you know. Make sure to use unsalted grass-fed butter. Period. Also, pure MCT oil is MUCH more effective (and overall not much more expensive) than coconut oil. You can find it for a reasonable price on Amazon (slightly cheaper the the BP website). PM me if you have any questions.

Does she have access to a thermos or insulated food jar? I've cooked stuff like rice, eggs and even vegetable stews with no other tools other than boiling water and one of these It's basically thermal cooking without a purpose made thermal cooker. You pour boiling into the thermos, prep your ingredients, pour out the water from the now hot thermos then add your ingredients and pour in more freshly boiled water. Leave for a couple hours and food happens.

Even without a thermos, you can make soft boiled eggs on noodles with just a covered container and boiling water. I've made this with an Oktoberfest mug before. Leave whole eggs in covered mug of freshly boiled water for about 5 mins, remove, then soak noodles or pasta in mug after replacing with fresh boiling water. Drain, then crack the soft boiled eggs over the noodles in a bowl and coat the noodles with it like a sauce. Season to taste with anything you like, salt, pepper, chilli flakes, soy sauce, cheese, bacon bits, breadcrumbs...

With something like this Thermos you can make food and it should be hot still when lunch comes around. Even comes with a folding spoon.

u/lilyfische · 1 pointr/diet

I love bringing soups for lunch. I have a thermos container that I love (like this one), so I just heat up the soup while I eat my breakfast and then pack it to go.

For me the soup has to be hearty in order to fill me up for the rest of the day, so potato leek, corn chowder, or lentil soup tend to be my go to recipes.

This can be a really easy thing to prepare before work if you make a big batch of soup over the weekend. Once or twice a month I will make 2 or 3 soups at a time and freeze them in small portions (the size that fits my thermos) and then I have options to choose from instead of eating the same soup every day of the week.

Pasta salad is also a filling lunch - I love pesto pasta salad, with just some spiral pasta, cherry tomatoes, and pesto.

u/torankusu · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I also use the Mr. Bento by Zojirushi, which has multiple containers for a variety of foods, but I also have a Thermos food jar for when I only have one thing, typically something with a lot of liquid, like stew or chili. That link is for the one I got (16oz), but it also comes in 24oz and in other colors (the red one isn't on their site for some reason, but it is in the Amazon one). I've had my Mr. Bento for 9 years and the food jar for 4. They've served me pretty well so far.

Most fast food places have their calories online.

However if you are worried about prep time here is a trick. What you can do is get a widemouth thermos and make a bunch of chicken at once then just reheat it. It lasts a few days so if you can find 2 times a week to make chicken thighs at home you can avoid the whole going out thing. I tend to have two chicken thighs on a bed of rice. I just really don't like greens; but I'm just maintaining weight. If you are trying to lose it you could absolutely replace the rice with greens or even nothing. Supposedly warm broccoli is good according to friends who actually like greens.

Here is a decent thermos it does take some getting used to slicing inside of it but you can preslice it which is what I do so it mixes with the rice.

16 is more than big enough for just lunch if you need more than just lunch you could get a 24 just keep track of how much you are putting in. If need be you could just fill it with greens as well it will keep cold also. A good trick is to put water of the temperature you want in for 15 to 20 mins before filling it and just wipe out the excess after dumping before sticking stuff in. I mainly use mine for chicken and meat but I know quite a few who put salads in and do the same thing.

I prefer thighs because they are smaller and easier to portion control but you can do the same thing with other cuts.
