Easy Meal Planning with Snapware!

snapware yoga When I was approached by World Kitchen to host a yoga class in Manhattan for their awesome Snapware line, I was immediately in! I have always loved all of World Kitchen’s lines such as Pyrex and CorningWare. I have fond memories of my grandmother and me using the mixing bowls and cookware for Christmas cookies and baking. My mom has so many of the products I never even realized were part of the World Kitchen.

As a busy mom I was thrilled to learn more about Snapware, and I’m a huge fan of the food storage containers. They are super durable, leak proof, spill proof, air tight and come with freezer packs so you can travel with them. I love to use them for meal prep and for storing Timothy’s snacks and meals that we take on the go to the playground or on our outings. I also often travel with my lunch and healthy snacks when I have long days teaching. I like that the collection offers BPA-free plastic options for easy portability, as well as glass for use in the microwave and/or storage. The lids are interchangeable for both.

Saturday morning I led a super fun, bendy, stretchy, challenging yoga class for a group of nutrition and fitness bloggers on the ground floor of a gorgeous townhouse space on the Upper East side of Manhattan. After class, we went upstairs for breakfast, a buffet bar of granolas, fresh berries and yogurt. We all made parfaits in a cute perfect sized Snapware container and chatted about healthy meal planning and our favorite yummy recipes.

I’ve learned that living a healthy lifestyle consists of many things, including reliable food storage so I can prep meals in advance and feel confident knowing they’ll stay fresh and won’t spill when I take them on the go. Snapware products have helped me organize my life better, I can plan and prep breakfast, lunch and dinner ahead of time for peace of mind. My fruits and veggies stay crisp and fresh; and when I take my lunch on the go, I know it won’t spill in my gym bag.

Here are some ideas for you for easy meals and prep.

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt, any flavor (I like vanilla)
  • ¼ cup quinoa, cooked or you can substitute raw oats as well
