Finally New Food Containers!!

So, for anyone who knows me, you know that I am at the hospital often.  I am often stuck eating gross hospital food.  My fiance is nice enough to bring me food.  For a while, he was bringing me the food in these clear containers with a flimsy lid.  The food would fall out, and moisture would always build up in the containers.  It made it hard to eat it.  I mean, who wants to eat soggy food?

Well, I recently purchased these new food containers off of Amazon (I know, I’m an Amazon junkie).  They are seriously the best food containers I’ve ever had.  So, I threw out all of my old ones!  The lids are very sturdy and SECURE.  In fact, they’re so secure that they’re even a little difficult to remove at times.  The food stays fresh, and there is no moisture buildup.  This set that you see here on Amazon is by #MyLeftovers, and they’re currently on sale for $16.99.  The set comes with 15 large containers with lids and 10 sauce/ dip bowls with lids.

The best part about these containers is that they’re BPA-Free and microwave safe!!  That’s a huge bonus!

Although I purchased these at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest, unbiased review, I would highly recommend these containers to anyone.

Found These Awesome Food Containers!

If you’re anything like me, you’re tired of putting food in Ziploc bags, or having flour go bad.  I’ve used food containers in the past, but they were difficult to finagle with.  I finally found an awesome set on Amazon, here.  

The picture makes it seem like you’re only getting 2 compartments, but no, you actually get 4 in total. There are 2 containers, each having a divider! Amazing! I used one for white rice in one half and brown rice in the other half. I used the second one for past in one half and beans in the other half.

I love the top blue part that slides so that you can pour out your food.

These containers make your staple foods stay fresher longer. The plastic is of high quality. The lid goes on extremely securely. There was not plastic smell. I made sure to wash mine prior to using it, to assure that it was clean. Make sure you dry it before putting dry food in there, or else it will put moisture in the container, which will defeat the purpose. The purpose of this container is to allow dry food to stay dry and fresh. Having it air tight is what helps it stay fresh.

There are so many things you could put in these containers. Like I said, I used pasta, beans, and rice, but I thought of a more enhanced ist as to what you could use below:
-pasta
-beans
-rice
-peppercorn
-sugar
-salt
-brown sugar, possibly, if it doesn’t sift through the divider
-coffee bean!!!!!!!!!!
-tea bags
-tea leaves
-flour
-dry cat or dog food
-bird seed
-oats
-nuts
-dehydrated fruit
-Chex Mix or another snack
-hard pretzels
– and lots more!

I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest, unbiased review. I hope my review has been helpful. Everything I have stated is 100% my words. If you have any questions regarding my experience, please don’t hesitate to comment below!

Seafood Eating Made Easy!!

If you love seafood as much as I do, then you certainly should invest in a seafood eating kit.  I found a great one on Amazon, called the #RatnikSeafoodKit.
This kit consists of 8 pieces:  4 forks, 2 dipping trays, and 2 crackers.  You may also use the crackers to crack nuts as well.

I think this is a good item to use if on a budget.  They are not of extremely high quality, but they are durable.  (They’re not stainless steel, but they work fine.)  I will be using the forks with mussels and clams, since I eat them often.

I used them on mussels the other day, and they worked perfectly.  I also ate crab last week, and they were exactly what I needed!  I can’t say the crackers are the best I’ve ever used, but they’re durable and decent!
