Remember all those great thoughts we had around New Years?  You know the ones that we were going to eat healthier and in the process lose a few holiday pounds?

Yeah, us too.  Well, then along came the biggest football game of the season and we had to treat ourselves and our guests with some delicious snacks and let's be honest, most of them were not low calorie. 

And before we recovered from those fun parties, along came the world of chocolate for Valentine's day!   Yes, we must confess we indulged.

But now you think of all those healthy fruits and vegetables that you bought after New Years to start those lofty goals and you also remember how much went to waste?   And you are hesitant to try that again?  

Well, we have discovered a solution to your concerns!

Rubbermaid® BRILLIANCE™ Premium food storage containers, 10 piece set!  

These upscale Rubbermaid® food storage containers are a vital solution to obtaining our healthy eating goals and they can easily be yours.

Let us show you how!

We all have a recipe or plan when we buy our fresh veggies and then we bring them home and put them in the fridge awaiting their turn to be chopped into delicious healthy veggie dishes.   

But we know the chopping is the most time-consuming part and after a long day, who wants to begin prepping vegetables?  

 So we don't and those gorgeous veggies just go to waste and we don't stay on our track to healthy eating.

But how about if we prep and season each meal's veggies, and store them in Rubbermaid's® most premium and upscale storage sets as soon as we arrive home from the store?   

Or pick a day to prepare several vegetable dishes to have ready for a quick microwave side dish. 

How to Prep for Easy and Healthy Vegetable Side Dishes

1.  Lemon Seasoned Asparagus -fresh asparagus seasoned with olive oil and McCormick lemon and Pepper Seasoning 

2. Squash Medley (zucchini and yellow squash, sliced, with a couple slices of purple onion and red bell pepper placed in container with garlic clove, seasoned with salt, pepper, olive oil and McCormick Vegetable seasoning)  

3. Stir Fry Veggie Prep- zucchini, yellow squash cut into sticks, slices of purple onion, mushrooms and red bell pepper.  

4. Sweet Potato Wedges Cut sweet potatoes into wedges, season with olive oil, salt, and pepper and Pumpkin Pie Spice or Freeze Dried Chives.  Store them in the containers until it's time to place them on a sheet pan for roasting.

All these dishes could be safely stored in these food storage containers ready for a quick and healthy meal for your family.

Look at that seal on this lid and those two locking tabs, that's the secret to the secure fit.  These containers deliver in a way other food storage solutions do not.  

These pristine high-quality containers are also dishwasher safe to make for easy cleanup.  


These Rubbermaid® BRILLIANCE™ food storage containers are also helpful in keeping those snack cravings under control. 

Prepare several servings of healthy snacks portioned in these reliable containers and not be tempted to grab that candy bar or those chips.

Healty Snack Options to go:

1.  Vegetable Snacks- celery sticks, baby carrots, cucumber slices

2.  Protein snack- red bell pepper slices, lean sandwich ham slices, rolled and cheese sticks

3.   Healthy Fruit Salad- strawberries, kiwi and blueberries

4.  Cheese and fruit to go-  grapes, cheese cubes and cashews  

Fulfilling our daily and weekly goals of healthy eating come down to a little planning ahead of time and limiting our time spent getting healthy food on the table. 

Diet Recipes

Rubbermaid® BRILLIANCE™ food storage containers stack perfectly in the refrigerator for an exceptional organization of all our healthy meals and snacks for the week.       

Prepping our meals ahead of time gives us the benefit of easy and quick dinners and takes away the temptation or in our case, the excuses of not eating healthy on those nights we are just too tired to face chopping veggies. 

Now we are ready to get back to our goals of getting fit before summer and we have the tools to do it.     


 Also don't you just hate it when you microwave and end up with a splattered mess to clean up or stained storage containers? 

These handy Rubbermaid® BRILLIANCE™  containers have innovative vents to allow microwaving with the lid on and the latches open to reduce splatters and they are stain resistant.      

So we don't only use these containers to prep food but they are also great for leftovers and can be reheated in the microwave saving us additional time, money and work. 

We are all doing this together and we just know we will see some great results. 

See it's all about organizing and having the right equipment that saves us time, effort and money in obtaining our weight loss goals.  

We can do this one meal, one snack, one day and one week at a time!
