These Glass Meal-Prep Cups from Williams Sonoma Are Perfect for Soups, Smoothies and Salads
The reusable, lidded containers are stunning, sustainable and start at just $4 each.
Meal prep can be described in many accurate ways: efficient, affordable, nutritious, handy...but rarely do we think of "meal prep" and think "ooh la la, tres chic!"
That all changes now, thanks to the designers at Williams Sonoma, who just launched a line of smart and stylish Working Glasses that one reviewer raves, "are wonderful for storing condiments like olive salad and small batches of chutneys. I like the fact that they are clear good-quality glass, so easy to locate in the refrigerator and no need to open every lid to see what is inside."
Plus, you can use them to blend up one of the pretty and pretty delicious smoothie recipe combos they recently recommended on Instagram:
