More About Flexilubes
The basic principle behind flexilubes is to make a meal you like enough to eat it over and over without getting sick of it. That way you can cook it on the weekend and bring the leftovers to work with you throughout the week. In a hypothetical week you would cook a flexilube meal with 5 servings on Sunday night. You eat one serving when it's fresh and then pack the remaining four into individual containers. Then Monday through Thursday you bring one container and a fork or spoon with you. On, Friday you treat yourself and eat out.
To that end, there are several things that make a successful flexilube. First, it helps to find meals that taste better when reheated like red beans and rice or meatballs and spaghetti. Things like fried foods and salads tend to get worse as time goes on. Also, each flexilube should contain everything you need for a well-balanced meal. Depending on the containers you use, you might have more leeway with this. Some segmented containers are great for including a side of vegetables with your main course but in case you are using those free ones you get with sliced deli meats there are still a lot of flexilube options out there.
