Looking to switch from plastic to glass food storage containers to avoid. Are all the brands the same?? Is there a safer brand or all they all pretty safe as far as chemicals and toxins?

Glass is one of the most inert materials we know of. Yes, you should reuse your glass containers.

Is it bad to put steaming hot food like meat and veggies in a plastic container or ziplock bag right away? Does it partially melt the plastic or anything? Sometimes I'm in a hurry and have to do this...

For transporting: Glass and foil for food, stainless steel for coffee and tea. Haven't looked into the aluminum factor yet though... And my glass containers have plastic lids, which I dislike, but haven't found better options yet. For storing:... (more)

Say this guy you know, before embracing and stroking Paleo lovingly, thought he should own every gluten-free flour and starch known to the human race, and a variety of sugars on top of that. I know, barking mad he seems. What Paleo repurposing... (more)

Leftovers, that's what i use them for - but those containers can also be used to store nails, screws, etc. craft supplies, toiletries, etc. That way you are not dumping them in a landfill AND you don't have to worry about BPA etc. leaching into... (more)
