My Sticky Ginger-Orange Chicken Meatballs Meal Prep is easy, packed with protein, sweet, tangy, and delicious. With only 30 minutes to spare, this meal prep will keep you satisfied and full of energy during this winter season.
Somehow, I always tend to cook a little more than necessary, leaving us with plenty of leftovers. So, I couldn’t be more excited to have this recipe sponsored by Ello Products Duraglass 10pc Set.
Even when I am not preparing actual meals for the week ahead, I typically will have something prepped to get snacking a little healthier. Whenever I have a few minutes to spare, I’ll pre-cut some fresh vegetables (like carrots, cucumbers, broccoli) and fruit (like pineapple, oranges, apples) to store in these food containers. The fruit is especially helpful in kicking those holiday sugar cravings throughout the day (allowing you to save that special treat for later in the evening 😉 ).
I’ve really become obsessed with Ello Products, especially their Duraglass 10pc Set that includes (5) 3.4 cup leak-free food storage containers. They are oven and microwave safe (without the lid, of course) with a silicone sleeve that provides a no-slip grip. Hallelujah! Save those dirty dishes for another meal, because these food containers are lifesaving!
Nonetheless, their food storage containers are the perfect size for portable meals on-the-go as they feature an air-tight AND leak-proof lid. This not only prevents those unwanted accidental spills during transit, but also keep your food fresher for longer.
If you want to prep for a longer period of time, you can also freeze in the Ello Duraglass food containers! Just allow the container to come to room temperature, remove the lid, then pop into the oven at 250F to reheat!
Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and make life a little bit easier during the week with this delicious meal prep!
