A Groupon offer this week, yes shock horror I haven't ordered from Amazon!! So you wondering why I have bought these handy foods containers. Well when I saw them my fellow brewsters I thought they would be really good for keeping my portion sizes to some sort of realistic and dieting size.
They are available in round ones in 450ml, 700ml and 900ml capacity but I went for the three compartment square ones. I figured for those busy days I could prepare a meal and pop some meat, vegetables in there. Here in this photo I had cooked a Chilli Con Carne in my slow cooker and ate one portion and saved the rest for another day, storing it in one of these containers. You can freeze them and use them in the microwave too. They are also dishwasher safe so a good all round useful container.
I ordered a pack of ten and so I can just keep reusing them as and when I need to. They are so good as I can prepare and store my own meals, Slimming World friendly instead of going out and buying processed ready meals so that feels great as I know what is in my home cooked meals. The square containers are available in one, two or three compartments so there is a wide range of choice.
I paid £6.98 for ten of these and to be honest two were damaged when I received delivery. I could of gone for replacements but for the price I paid I've just used those for another use and the other eight will be plenty to keep me going. They do also make good little paint palettes so if you have small children or anyone who loves painting then you can use them for that too, especially the lids.
If you would like any more information on this offer then you can find it on Groupon here www.groupon.co.uk/deals/ten-pack-food-containers
If you're like me I tend to go a bit mad with a cooked dinner and load far too much on my plate well these have really taught me to keep the size of my meals down so think of them as a nutritional educational resource.
If you've tried them let me know what you think or do you think they are a good idea?

What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
