5 essential tools for your meal prep journey
MANILA, Philippines – Gone are the days of instant gratification and consuming unnecessary calories – these days, it’s all about meal prepping.
Think of it as an upgraded, fancier version of the baon, but instead of slaving away in the kitchen every morning to cook, you designate a couple of hours in a specific day to prepare a batch of meals that’s good to last you a week.
Meal prepping has benefits that go beyond letting you regain precious hours sleeping or even doing the things you love. By preparing balanced, properly portioned meals yourself, you get to eat healthier and even lose weight, too!
Sounds good? Make meal prepping your new habit starting now! Below are some essentials you need to kick start your journey:
Get these mason jar for P856.00 and set of 4 lunchboxes for P1,150.00 from Lazada
Have a set of at least five reusable containers to store your meals in. Good ol’ plastic lunch boxes work fine, but feel free to use fancy mason jars for your salads, oatmeal breakfasts, and smoothies!
Get these spoon and fork set with plastic case for P350.00 and steel spoon, fork, and chopsticks set with pull chain case for P499.00 from Lazada
Get yourself one or two sets of spoons and forks – knives and chopsticks optional! – that you can use to, well, eat your meals with. Pick those with cases so you can bring them anywhere.

Go full-on healthy dining by making homemade drinks, too! Make your own juices, fruit-infused water, or shakes to go with your yummy, balanced meal.
Keep your food fresh and cool or hot until mealtime!
