One of my favorite parts about the holidays is all of the delicious food and drinks. But after days of pies, cocktails and potatoes in every form, I'm definitely ready for a healthy-eating reset. And one easy way I like to get back on track is by prepping some healthy meals to keep in my fridge. I know I'll feel better if I have a big batch of veggies, whole grains and lean proteins, but without the right storage containers it can be tough to cook in bulk. That's why I was so excited to see two of Rubbermaid's meal-prep container sets on major sale at Walmart for Black Friday.

My meal-prep containers have seen better days (and I'm missing several lids), so I think it's time to recycle them and upgrade to this 42-piece Rubbermaid Press & Lock set. Usually $39.99, this food storage set is just $18.99 at Walmart right now—over a 52% savings!

I'm a big fan of these because they come in various sizes ranging from ½-cup containers (perfect for a single portion of grains) to 7-cup containers (hello, big batch soup!) and nest inside of each other for easy storage. They're also BPA-free, can go in the freezer and can even be microwaved without the lid. And perhaps best of all, they can be cleaned in the dishwasher (I'm really lazy and don't like to hand-wash my meal-prep containers, so this is a huge plus in my book). 

I've also been eyeing these food storage containers from Rubbermaid that look like glass (but aren't as fragile). They're marked down from $39.99 to $35.63 right now at Walmart.

Each piece in this Brilliance Food Storage Set from Rubbermaid has a completely leak-proof seal and secure latches to ensure that your food stays put in the container. I love that these clear containers allow you to see exactly what's inside (perfect for storing big-batch veggies or grains in the fridge) and come with built-in vents in the lid to allow steam—but not splatters—to escape in the microwave.

This 20-piece set includes sizes ranging from ½-cup containers to a large 9.6-cup container and lids for everything. And, like the other Rubbermaid set, these containers nest into each other for easy storage and are safe for the microwave, freezer and dishwasher. 

You can't go wrong with either of these meal-prep container options. Having high-quality food storage containers will help you prep healthier meals during the holiday season (and beyond!). And if you're looking for some healthy meal plans to try out, I'm a big fan of our Mediterranean Diet Plan for Beginners, Plant-Based Meal Plan for Beginners or these High-Protein 30-Minute Lunches that are great for saving time during the week. Happy prepping!
