In OXO Food Diaries, we gave friends of the brand our new Prep & Go reusable food containers (and accessories) to see how they stood up to everyday life. Here’s how Erica used Prep & Go for a week of meals, picnics and hiking.
I spend time meal prepping on either Sunday or Monday nights. My go-to is brown rice with grilled seasonal veggies plus fruit a la Melissa’s Produce. I portion out one cup of brown rice per serving and add the veg medley to the side.
The middle of the week gets busy and it helps me stay creative and focused when I know I can rely on delicious and healthy meals I’ve already prepared. I take the Prep & Go sandwich container in my tote and lunch is easily served wherever I am.
We took the food truck up to the Catskills and I had just enough time to grab a juice and some fruit. One thing about me is: I love taking snacks to go! A seasonal fruit salad, like this one with mango and plum, guarantees an instant pick-me-up on busy days.
Shared a picnic lunch in style with some friends. I brought a kale salad, tun-o sandwich, vegan cheese, rice ‘n’ grilled veggies, plus a mango x plum side. All of it stayed picnic-ready in the Prep & Go containers.
Went for a morning hike and came home to eat breakfast before taking on the day. Enjoyed the mango salad from my Prep & Go container with some freshly brewed tea.
