Our philosophy is always to cook meals that include a well-balanced meal all in one but some people prefer vegetables and dessert sides items. For those people, having segmented containers like shown below or a tiffin is the way to go.

The containers we use all come from leftovers from local restaurants. If you ask your friends who eat out the most to save their containers for you, you will be surprised how quickly it adds up.
