It’s back to school time, and even if you don’t have little ones rushing out the door to catch the bus, it’s still seems to be the time of year when everyone tends to re-group, and get back in a regular routine, as the fun of summer winds down.
Taking a fresh look at meal packing and planning is a good place to start! Especially for those that might be going off to college, starting a new job, or maybe you just indulged in one too many tasty treats during summer and it’s time to get your food planning back on track.
One way that we stay organized and healthy in our food planning/packing is by using Mason jars. The jars offer measurements to help control portions, and you can prepare a number of lunches or meals at once. A quick snack, or meal is always ready and in the fridge or freezer making mealtime a snap! Read more about why Mason jar meals are pretty great here.
The Cuppow Coozie is made with Pfelt, which is created from recycled plastic bottles. The Coozie insulates hot or cold beverages and fits a wide mouth 16 oz jar. It boasts a stretch webbing to easily store a reusable straw, fork, or spoon and a loop for carrying. Pair it with a Cuppow lid (available in a variety of colors) to turn your Mason jar into a travel cup.
The BNTO, also made by Cuppow, fits inside a widemouth canning jar, separating the jar into two leak-proof compartments. The BNTO is made from BPA-free plastic and holds six ounces of whatever you want to fill it with – salad dressing, hummus, granola, nuts, salsa, etc. The BNTO is the perfect way to keep your snack or meal separate until you are ready to dip, mix or dunk it.
