Prepared With Purpose uses glass containers for several reasons.

  • Glass does not contain the harmful chemicals found in plastics and disposables that can get into your food.
  • It is also easy to reheat meals in glass containers using an oven instead of using a microwave, giving our clients the option to use the heating method they prefer.
  • Lastly, it is better for the environment because glass containers can be recycled instead of ending up at the landfill after a single use.

In order for us to deliver you your meals each week, you’ll need to purchase the Prepared with Purpose starter kit first to get you started. Don’t worry though, if you forget to add the glassware when you order the first time, we can add it manually before the first delivery on Sunday.

Reheating! As a general rule, the more solid dishes like burgers, casseroles, stuffed peppers, etc are easily reheated in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes. If you are reheating soup or stir-fry, the stove top in a saucepan is the best option. The containers without lids are also microwave safe if you don’t have access to the stove or oven.
