These are the products featured in the image OP ripped from Twitter. They're a product literally made for the little cups to snap into. It doesn't work with just any random container.

u/justasque · 63 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Keeping wet things separate from dry things helps. I have a variety of small Sistema containers; I would probably simply put each item into a different container. They also make a nice container with a compartment at one end for, say, hummus, and a long section for, say, carrots or sliced peppers to dip into the hummus.

This one, the Snack Attack Duo, is nice - there's space for a couple of different kinds of things.

I have this one ("Salad To Go") for salads - I am amazed at how long the salads remain fresh in it.

This is a smaller one, with two sections.

I use the Dressing Containers for salad dressing; they also make several larger sizes that would work for small amounts of fruit or nuts.

The Triple Split has more room for larger amounts, and comes with a container which can be used for yogurt, hummus, cottage cheese, or fruit like watermelon.

The Sistema stuff is well-made. I put mine in the dishwasher with care, and it has held up very well. I've had no problem with leakage, and food seems to last longer in the Sistema than in other containers. (I have no stake in the company; I just love the products!)

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/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.

u/SmearedPants · 40 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Something to keep in mind: If you have a long commute, I'd definitely recommend getting a backpack with two straps. As cute as some messenger/tote bags are, your shoulder can get quite sore from carrying it, especially if you have a lot of things in it, like a Macbook, lunch, etc. My commute to-and-from work every day is 2 miles that I walk, and I am very glad to have a backpack that allows for equal distribution of weight across my shoulders. Unfortunately, I don't have any good recommendations for a nice backpack, because I'm just using an old backpack from when I was in college. As for lunch bags, I just got this cheap one off of Amazon that is roomy enough to hold several food items and containers, and then I just stuff the lunch bag into my backpack. Best of luck to you in your search, though!

u/ThisbeMachine · 22 pointsr/financialindependence

Haha, no – it's not a crock pot you can cook with, it's just a reheater. So I bring in stuff I've already cooked (usually on meal prep Sunday), and after an hour or two in the pot it's hot and ready to eat.

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/VerteNinja · 17 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

This with an appropriate car adapter so you can plug it in. I got one for my gf who works out of a truck

u/threefiftyseven · 15 pointsr/MealPrepSunday
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.

u/throwir · 12 pointsr/ems
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/Sahil_From_The_Bay · 11 pointsr/simpleliving

You see these used everywhere in India. You cant microwave them obviously, but they'll keep you're food decently warm. easy to clean, modular ect.

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).

u/GT4130 · 9 pointsr/1200isplenty

Had the same issue. Got one of these to protect my sandwich from squishing

Something like this is my usual go to sandwich when I don’t want meat

I keep the insides in a separate bag in the box and assemble when ready to eat

u/SirLenzalot · 9 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

With careful research and maybe a bit of prayer to whatever flying meal prep monster in the sky, I learned that I get what I pay for.

Komax Lunch Boxes Set of 3, with 3 Removable Compartments, Leak Proof, Microwave Freezer and Dishwasher Safe

I have two sets of these since April and so far no issues of leaks, warps and staining.

u/tacosontuesday · 8 pointsr/veganfitness

I bring everything to get me from 7-4 in a general office environment.

Breakfast - overnight oats: 3/4 cup old fashioned oats, coconut milk, PB2, frozen cherries and strawberries (they thaw overnight), and a banana. This is super portable if you find the right kind of jar/tupperware. I add the banana fresh in the morning. If I didn't leave the house at 6am, I would totally make a smoothie of spinach, a banana, and bunch of other fruit with coconut/almond milk, but the wife doesn't appreciate the roar of the magic bullet waking her up.

Lunch - the past two weeks has been rice and beans with frozen peas. I freeze half the week and microwave them at work. If you have access to a microwave that could work. EDIT - I use [these] ( for my lunches. They have held up surprisingly well over the last 4 months for 5 days a week of microwaving 2-3 minutes at a stretch.

Snacks/stuff I may eat with lunch - a rice cake with peanut butter (usually have the PB in another small container), unsweetened applesauce with cinnamon, clementines

Almonds and other fruit are portable and last all day.

EDIT 2 - I have been noodling this around in my head this morning some more. It boils down to a lot of trial and error. I always start my first day at a new job with something portable and nonperishable. Things like fruit, nuts, and a PB sandwich. I can keep them with me and not worry about refrigeration or anything unknown with where I am working. I mean most places have a kitchen for their staff, but you don't want to be caught assuming and you have a wilted dead salad by the time you get to it.

Once you get the lay of the land, then you can begin to plan. But it comes down to what you have available and what you like to eat. I have gone from those Chinese take out plastic containers, to glass containers (awesome for soups and tomato based things, but the lids are the failing point), to my little three compartment deal and probably a few more steps in between. I tried to carry my lunch in my work bag, but that sucked. So I used plastic/reusable shopping bags. That sucked too. I eventually bought a cheap [lunch bag] ( that I cram everything in. For the cost, it works great, but don't expect it to keep anything colder then the commute to work. Same goes with my water bottle/coffee mug. Used to have separate ones, now it is just one. Hell for a while I was using one of those 64oz ones that you take to kid's soccer games.

I like to prep on Sundays, lay everything out, and coast through the week. Other people rely on leftovers or making things the night before. Mine is actually a combo, I prep the oatmeal and odds and ends so I can just grab and go in the morning.

tl;dr There are no right answers. You do you and don't be afraid to mix things up as you figure things out.

u/dustinpdx · 8 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Hey you should check out the Hot Logic! You can get glass dishes that fit it perfectly and can be reused. There are 12v and 120v versions. We use the 120v with an inverter for the car. My wife plugs her lunch in around 3-4 hours before she wants to eat it and it comes out perfect temperature every time.

u/snap_hat · 8 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Here. Highly recommend them, they freeze well and are great if you just want to microwave one thing, or heat for different amounts of time.

u/falcompro · 8 pointsr/1200isplenty

I got these :

They are fairly compact, I can stack two rows back and front in my fridge. Wish they were a little wider instead of taller (So that my naan can fit better). Apart from that they hold the perfect amount. I guess if I were not dieting and going for bigger meals they might not fit my portion sizes.

Can't comment on longevity. I got them last week since my plastic containers I was using before these were hard to clean (especially since I like curries).

u/levelsubzero · 7 pointsr/keto

I'm so sorry that stupid stall happened to you :( You were trying so hard for so long without any positive results, it would drive anyone nuts. The egg allergy is another weird bummer. And it only happens on keto? WTF bodies, WTF? Sometimes it feels like the nature is evil and conspiring to make our lives miserable.

However, remember that no matter what, it is never impossible to lose weight. Even if you were in a coma your body would still burn plenty of calories and if your feeding tube provided less, you'd lose weight.

Now here's my take on the issues:

Calculating food nutrition: Not sure what you mean by "tracking food", but estimates and portion control don't work on keto if you have a tendency to overeat. Your body is screwed up and doesn't give you appropriate signals on how much you need, that's why you gained weight in the first place. You can't trust it. You have to literally weigh everything you eat, to a gram precision. Including milk/cream in coffee and sugar free candies.

Eating at work and long commute: Assuming you leave early in the morning and the lunch break is at noon, that's maximum 6-8 hours for food to sit in your bag unrefrigerated. It's probably fine for most foods, they won't get dangerously spoiled. Stomach acid is good at dealing with moderate amounts of bacteria, anything that doesn't smell/taste off shouldn't cause any harm. For a peace of mind you can also get a cooler lunch box with an ice flask insert, something like this. Sandwiches with low carb bread, crackers with cheese, salads, keto cookies, cakes, lettuce leaves with stuff thrown on top are all edible cold. On college days I leave home at 9am and come back after 9pm, with lunch break at 4pm. I take flax bread sandwiches with cheese, cooked meats and pate, keep them unrefrigerated and haven't poisoned myself yet.

Artificial sweeteners: I wouldn't worry about it too much, just check the ingredients of granulated/powdered ones. Unless it's erythritol, it probably contains dextrose/maltodextrin which is light, fluffy sugar. The whole fear of cancer, "chemicals" and weight gain is BS. They can raise insulin, cause cravings and make food more likely to settle as fat, but they won't make you gain fat out of thin air on a calorie deficit.

Metabolic slowdown, calories and stalls: It is true that metabolism slows down on a calorie deficit. However, it is not a binary thing where it is normal to a certain point and then switches to slow mode. It is more or less proportional. By having a bigger deficit you will slow it down more, but not to the point of maintenance on 1200 kcal. The reason why going too low is bad is low energy, hunger, too much stress on the body causing it to freak out and sustainability. If none of these are an issue to you and you feel great, a bigger deficit is ok and you will indeed lose more on a bigger deficit, despite slower metabolism. But it has to be comfortable and mostly a positive experience. If the negatives outweigh the positive feelings, you will become irritated, sick of it, hate everything and eventually break. It's not a matter of willpower, brain runs on chemicals, you are your brain, and you can only win by cooperating with it and playing by its rules. Water retention can cause apparent stalls for a couple of months, but in your case of 6 months it is more likely a combination of factors, including having more calories than you though. Here's a good post on shorter stalls, which are normal and to be expected.

Please don't ever give up. I'm on 1200 kcal myself (I weigh every crumble that goes in my mouth) and been stalling for 6 weeks, but today it started creeping down a bit. It is very frustrating and I have rage quit myself more times than I'd like to admit.

In regards to autumn foods: EAT ALL THE SQUASH!

  • Spaghetti squash lasagna

  • Spaghetti squash spaghetti

  • baked acorn squash

  • sweet peppers, chicken sausage, and whole wheat pasta with pureed butternut squash for sauce

  • zucchini everything

  • sliced zucchini with sweet apple chicken sausage, raisins, walnuts, and whole wheat spaghetti tossed with a little olive oil

  • yellow squash all the things when you run out of zucchini!

  • Ratatouille

    As for heating food without a microwave...

  • Portable mini crockpot

  • Heated lunch box

  • Hot packs

  • Thermoses
u/DonaldTrumpinYou · 7 pointsr/electricians

This right here is one of the best work investments I have made. Look into it, I highly recommend it. The reviews speak for themselves. I would also recommend a cheap inverter for the truck incase you're on the road. Leftovers never taste like leftovers, can heat a can of soup, you name it.

u/idonotliketoknowit · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Amazon! They are way bigger than I thought they would be. Definitely won’t fit in a regular lunchbox - Enther Meal Prep Containers... maybe that will work?

u/ResultzMayVary · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

For anyone looking:

Seems quite pricey ~AUD$25 per container. Please let me know if they find a cheaper alternative.

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/dammitannie · 6 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

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/ashfont · 6 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I think you've got the right brand/line, but this Lunch Blox Salad Kit looks more like what OP has.

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.

u/beerigation · 5 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

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.

I agree with most of what you said. I spent a long time single and many of my guy friends were always trying to tell me girls were into me for doing things like saying hi or other acts of basic human decency.

My disagreement is that’s not organs, it’s a lunchbox.

u/3metre · 4 pointsr/vandwellers

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!

u/no_yes_really · 4 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I saved this one because people were talking about it not too long ago. Haven't bought it yet but I like the idea of being able to put only part of it in the microwave. Usually my main course needs to be reheated but not the sides.

I usually start the printer before I leave for work in the morning. When I get home I will clean them up, so they sit as long as 6 hours before cleanup on a normal day. I have let them sit for 12+ hours before with no noticeable effect.

The cleaning / support removal process takes maybe 20 minutes including cleanup of the workstation. I cure them for about 20 minutes in a curing chamber as well.

I don't clean my tank unless there are resin bits on the FEP that won't squeegee off. The few times I have cleaned it, I filter the resin through a paint filter back into the bottle, then let ipa rest on the FEP for about 30 seconds, squeegee, and repeat as necessary to break up any hardened resin. Gotta be careful with this, I ruined a FEP trying to pick off dried resin.

Once I have completed cleaning, I wipe down the LCD screen with a clean antistatic cloth that I only use for this purpose, and it (hopefully) never touches resin.

I printed a vat cover on my FDM printer to seal it off when I'm not using it.

For the build plate, I bought some cheap microfiber shop towels from the hardware store, and I cut them up into patches. I put a small amount of IPA on the patch and wipe down the build plate, then toss the patch. I use these for general cleaning of my tools as well.

I posted some costs above:

> I'm estimating this is 3 - 4 liters of resin. Resin is about $40 per liter. Anycubic Photon is for sale on Amazon right now for $270. There are some other expenses associated with a resin printer. Safety equipment (nitrile gloves, safety glasses, apron, ventilation if needed), cleaning supplies (IPA, IPA storage, Ultrasonic Cleaner is optional), and consumable parts for the printer (FEP and LCD screen have to be replaced periodically).
>I bought an ultrasonic cleaner because its easier. it was about $60. Also I recommend a ventilation system unless you can put this in a garage that people aren't occupying. Fan, duct, and carbon filter were probably $50 - $60 total.
>I wouldn't say its a cheap hobby, but it definitely could be worse.

Some procedural stuff:

I like to remove supports before IPA bath. It seems to give a better finish to any spots the supports make.

I have 3 IPA baths - An older "dirty" IPA bath, a large ziplock bag with IPA, and a newer "clean" bath.

After cutting supports, I dunk the minis in the dirty bath, then toss them in the ziplock bag. I put the ziplock bag in an ultrasonic cleaner filled with water for 5 minutes, as shown in this link

I then remove the models and do a dunk and a light shake in the clean bath, which is a pickle container with strainer

This all may be over kill but its pretty quick and hasn't failed me yet.

I remove and put the models in the UV chamber for 20 minutes, give or take.

I do all my work on a sheet of wax paper, so when I'm done I can wad up all my waste and toss it.

That is pretty much my process.

Occasionally I will set my sealed IPA containers in the sun so the resin drops out. I am still looking for a good way to filter the dry resin out of the IPA. For now it just settles at the bottom of the container.

I have a bunch of these. The dressing container stays in place really well, and if it pops out it just falls on your salad so it's not a big deal. I throw my lunch (salad or soups) in my bag, so it gets tossed around a lot and I haven't had any issues with leaking.

u/licensetokilt · 3 pointsr/savedyouaclick

Yeah, they're made that way on purpose and sometimes sold with the smaller cups included:

I have these salad bowls that are rather large. In the lid there's a place that you can snap your dressing into it in it's own little cup, so you can add the dressing when you're ready. They're fucking fantastic. 32oz too, so can make a hefty fucking salad. I think they're done by Glad.


Probably better places to get them, but that's what I use.

I cook my beans from dried, usually in the slow cooker. Generally they are just plain cooked beans; if they are spiced, it's usually mexican seasoning and they're leftover from taco Tuesday dinner.

Like one of these? That's brilliant. I know there's at least a couple of microwaves in the school where I work, but I don't love the idea of wandering through the halls at lunchtime carrying my leftovers. (I tend to eat in my desk so I can play on my phone in peace or get extra work done.)

Get your self a hot plate lunch box!!

My husband drives semi and was getting tired of sandwiches and salads. Now he can take whatever he wants, there is one downside and that was having to switch to glass storage containers. A lot of the time he takes freezer burritos and wraps them in aluminum foil (not sure if you do the low carb wraps).

If you are just looking at cold lunches for convenience and have power at your desk I recommend one of these

Simple and will reheat just about anything without worrying about running to the microwave. Just plug it in a few hours before lunch, I usually just plug it in when I arrive at work, and your lunch will be nice and hot for lunchtime.

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. I have one of these, these, and these which covers just about all food types. But I have used just about any type of reusable plastic and takeout container with success.

u/PronouncingGif · 3 pointsr/slowcooking

If you want something portable that you may be able to actually use for cooking, try, but no guarantees from me because i only use it for heating. The company says it can cook, though.

u/EastCoastRedBird · 3 pointsr/loseit

If you're staying in a hotel, many of them do have mini fridges available to you, if you ask. That might make simple meal prep a couple of times a week a possibility.

Another solution is a portable personal oven which might make it possible to heat up healthy frozen dinners.

u/irishrimp · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I literally spent 20 hours finding the right containers, lunchbox, etc. for meal prepping. I decided these ones were the best: Komax Biokips Food Storage Lunch Boxes Set of 3, Divided Plastic Container with 3 Removable Compartments, Leak Proof, - Airtight Locking Lids

They are stackable and appear sturdy ( I've only had 7 weeks). What I love the most is that the compartments are removable, so if you have fruit or something that you don't want to microwave, but you don't want to have to eat that item first, no problem! They are definitely leak proof; I lived out of an ice chest in a hotel for a week and the meals at the bottom were in water for a day or 2 and still perfectly good. The individual compartments aren't leak proof, but the containers fit perfectly in my lunch box so I don't have to worry about that.

As far as food, keep it simple: 1 or 2 different meals so you don't feel overwhelmed or consume a whole day cooking and cleaning. My first week I made "homemade Chipotle bowls": Bush's chilli beans over rice with some Mexican cheese on top; corn, diced tomato, lettuce, and black olives in a separate compartment to pour over rice mix after it has been heated up; and a side of sour cream too. You can add a protein to it and salsa, etc. to customize. This is my go to meal if I need a couple extra meals if I'm trying something new and didn't make enough. I could (and do) eat that 12x a week no problem.

u/925Copper · 3 pointsr/datingoverthirty

Still haven’t been able to get back to running yet but my Achilles tendinitis has greatly improved so maybe soon. I’m in PT and try to do all my exercises and stretches daily.

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.

Oh and I got a bunch of Smartwool socks and other stuff on discount that’s arriving today! So a bunch of happy but low key stuff for me lately. :)

u/Bael_Take_The_Wheel · 2 pointsr/fatlogic

Hummus and veggies or hummus and pretzels (17 pretzels are 90 calories and the perfect amount for two tablespoons of hummus which is 70 calories).

I also do frozen veggies or veggie blends, like peas and carrots, broccoli, California blend, etc. Dish them out frozen in the morning and 30-45 seconds in the microwave at lunch is normally enough to thaw and heat them.

For lunch packing suggestions, I just use a lunch bag similar to this. I got mine free from work for some "Healthy Habits" initiative. It's nice because I can carabiner it to my work bag easily enough.

For tupperware, I have an assortment of Lock-and-locks in various sizes. They are great, I can fill one with a vinaigrette and it won't leak.

I don't do one tupperware with multiple compartments, I do multiple smaller containers so I can heat some things and leave others cold.

Multiple smaller containers also helps with portion size because sometimes I want to just fill the container all the way up instead of measuring.

u/CaptainCoral · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

this might be a good idea for the kiddos. They're small and easy to carry, and they can put their carry-on items in them with easy access. For any sort of road-travel, it's good to toss in some trail mix and a juicebox -- for the plane, it'll carry a book, device (mp3, tablet, DS, etc), plus travel kleenex packets, headphones, etc.....
Backpacks for kids can sometimes be a little too bulky, and these make the trip much easier, as well as being kid-size. :)
Good luck!

Haha the soup is very stereotypical keto. Very high fat, very low carb, absolutely delicious. To make it fit into my day I make it with a few modifications (leaner meat, lower fat cheeses, smaller serving sizes) and pair it with lighter breakfasts and lunches.

I weigh everything except the baby romaine for the salads. My eyes are definitely bigger than my stomach (and my calorie budget) and weighing helps keep me on track.

u/Erithacus__rubecula · 2 pointsr/AutoImmuneProtocol

If you are at one job site for 30 minutes or so before your lunch hour you can plug in this little device ; it’s a small crock pot that heats food up fairly quickly and you just plug it in a little before you want to eat. I have this one and love it. I have heard there are battery-operated models as well, but I haven’t tried them.

If you would prefer to go to a location that has a microwave, another place to check is Panera Bread locations. They usually have microwaves and they are fairly common in most metro areas. I have never had them say anything to me when I use the microwave for my lunch. I usually go in with a group and use the microwave when they go to the counter to order.

u/Greatrisk · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I just wanted to say that this little mini crockpot is awesome and helps me avoid the community microwave in my office! It doesn’t cook your food; it keeps your already cooked food warm. Turn it on in the morning, have warm lunch waiting. I use mine often! [crockpot]

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 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.

My green minis are mostly undead, skeletons and zombies etc. The skeletons are the most flimsy with thin bones and swords, one of them survived a waist high drop onto a wooden floor, although I wouldn't want to repeat it.

Cleaning and curing involves two IPA baths for about minute each with gentle shaking (these containers are great). Then they get a bath in hot tap water and a gentle rub with a soft toothbrush. A lot of the thinner supports will literally fall off by this point, then I'll go round with my flush cutters and remove any remaining supports. Next is a craft knife to remove any marks or lumps left by the supports before putting the mini under an LED UV nail lamp to finish curing.

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.

(sorry for the unstructured answer but I just wrote what was in my mind and that was not in any sequence.)

I work 12 hour days, so I feel your problems.

Birdseye and Green Giant do steam in bag vegetables I've found to be pretty good. They are under $3 a per bag, so that is an easy way to get your veggies. At least two meals a day for me are nothing but 4 minute to cook veggies bags. Like $20 gives me a month worth of food.

I'm also a fan of doing spaghetti with meatballs, chicken alfredo or some other pasta based dish I can put into Tupperware and just microwave in 5 or 6 minutes or less. I figure I spend maybe $40 a month on dinners for work.

Also, pick up a lunch bag like this to carry it in.

I also recommend a 4 in one utensil set like this.

I also have a cheap, $20 2 quart crockpot from WalMart that I can do soup or something in. Start it up when I get into work, by first lunch (I take two half hour lunchs a night) I've got a good meal ready to go. Often times one of my co-workers and I will poll some cash and do something.

I do a better job at eating healthy at the office compared to my work from home days. When I WFH, I am able to graze all day and truly cave when the afternoon munchies strike. At work, I can only eat what I pack. I focus on protein since it is filling and keeps me from getting too hungry.

I stock up on Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice frozen meals when they are one sale. Not the healthiest choice, but decent calorie control and many of them have 20g+ of protein. Works great when you are in a pinch. And even though they are supposed to be frozen, they survive quite well in the fridge or insulated lunch bag from morning until lunch time.

I buy large packs of chicken breast, grill it, divide it into 4 oz quantities and freeze. Pull out a bag, mix with salad greens and a little bit of dressing, and I have a salad for lunch. I use a Rubbermaid Lunch Blox Salad Container.

I also have a lot of Greek yogurt, string cheese (6g of protein for 70 calories), and baby carrots.

I also bring my breakfast to work and eat it while checking my morning emails (and Reddit haha). For breakfast I will make an omelet (using this or a breakfast sandwich with this

In this photo, you will see (bottom-up/left-right):

  1. Ikea: LINNMON / ALEX Table, white/gray -; for providing a surface for most of the following listed after this.

  2. Edifier W855BT Bluetooth Headphones -; for my bus rides to and from work.

  3. HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset -; this headset is connected to my computer, for gaming or if I just feel like using these instead of the speakers I will mention again sometime in the future.

  4. The Anchor -; this headphone mount sticks under the Ikea table I had mentioned earlier. Once mounted, I rest my two headphones on to them. When not in use, of course.

  5. Generic, black folding TV Tray - from Fancy Red Walmart; I use this tray to hold phone, drinks, or whatever else I'd like it to hold.

  6. Green bowl with spoon-shaped silverware, with a folder paper towel undereath - this was gifited to me, thanks Auntie!; before this photo was taken, this bowl was used to house Cocoa Pebbles and Whole Milk. It no longer houses said things, as they are now digesting in my vessel.

  7. Pint glass - from Frederick Meyer; this pint glass was most recently used to hold drinking water poured from my Britta pitcher, with water that comes from my kitchen sink.

  8. SONGMICS 3-tier Storage Cube Closet Organizer Shelf -

  9. SimpleHouseware Foldable Cube Storage Bin, Dark Grey -; Items 8 and 9 are used together for storage of items unrelated to this posting.

  10. Edifier R1280T Powered Bookshelf Speakers -; these are speakers that I connect to my computer. They output sound.

  11. Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro L -; this is my keyboard. It has fancy white LEDs that light up when you press down on whatever key you press down on. It also has Cherry MX Browns.

  12. Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller - this is the controller I use when I want to use a controller for gaming

  13. Logitech G400 Optical Gaming Mouse -; my second-favorite mouse - with my first being the Logitech MX518. I love the shape of these mouses.

  14. Generic mouse pad I got off of Amazon. My mouse doesn't work without it.

  15. Bluetooth speaker that I use to connect to my phone and bring to the bathroom with me when I take a shower.

  16. CORSAIR CARBIDE 275R Mid-Tower Gaming Case -; inside this case is my computer. What's inside the case doesn't matter for this post, as this is about my battlestation, not my computer.

  17. A Bounty paper towel roll. The Quicker Picker Upper.

  18. Talking Dalek Bank -; this Dalek holds my change, while giving me threatening threats.

  19. A penguin.

  20. A flashlight. I use this when I take my dog out for walks and it is dark out. Because I don't have night vision.

  21. Below the flashlight is a container that once held M&M's. The lid of the container is shaped like the blue M&M named Blue's face. The container is currently empty.

  22. A lunch box that looks like a TARDIS -; I don't actually use this for lunch. I use it to hold random things. Yes, it's bigger on the inside.

  23. ASUS VZ27AQ Monitor -; this is a 27-inch monitor that outputs video at a resolution of 2560x1140.

If you don't want to use a thermos, there are gadgets like this: Heated Lunch Box. You plug it into a wall outlet about 30 mins before lunch. I haven't tried one, but they look interesting.

Consider a tiffin box! I've used them for soup and salads in the past and they're terrific. Downside is the metal is not microwaveable, but they make some out of plastic.

u/DNA_ligase · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

If you're not going to microwave the food, a layered tiffin box could be up your alley. Example, if you have an Indian store anywhere nearby, they're usually a bit cheaper there.

u/fujiapple73 · 1 pointr/instantpot

My suggestion:

Get an Instant Pot and make your dinners with it.

Get a lunch crockpot and reheat your leftovers in it for lunch the next day (takes about 4 hours).

They even have these little minis that are pretty cool and could keep a significant amount of cheese warm. Side note, now I want to buy one for on the go nachos

I got a mini crock pot which is pretty popular at our station (and it's super cheap). It does take 45-60 min to heat your food fully, but I just plug it in and forget about it. It has a standard wall plug, but we have a power strip in the back with a long enough cord to reach the front. Its not very big, but it works great for leftovers and soups!

Wrap in foil and throw it in the engine bay away from moving parts like belts and throttle linkage, maybe?? Also, there is also a little 12V oven that only draws like 200W. There. I think there's some YT vids on a guy trying out all sorts of recipes.

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!

u/jce_superbeast · 1 pointr/taxpros

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!

Actually it was the first thing that came up when I googled it, under an Amazon ad to buy one. I checked the Amazon ad for you, but it seems the large version I originally linked was too expensive and didn't pan out. It is still available for purchase, but it can only be found used. Here's the portable version that was offered in the same article I linked you to.

Edit: Funny enough, if you click the name of the company and scroll past their products, the first unaffiliated product you see is this very same mini crock pot.

u/slashtomorrow · 1 pointr/Goruck

I'll say it's not quite my wheelhouse. I think mine is pretty basic, but it was cheap.

I'm able to fit a fair amount of food in it, but I haven't ever really packed a meal in the box that had to be constructed when it was time to eat (e.g. some kind of noodle dish in the bottom with fixings in the upper compartments). It's certainly not built for liquids, and the seal is pretty reliant on the nylon strap. All that said, it fits my needs for now.

This one seems like it could pack some serious meals, but at the expense of not being as compact. I think a good box is one that could feasibly fit your regular lunches but also inspire you to think of new meal ideas.

Sorry for the long post.

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.
