When I started my 50Km a day bikecommute-life, it had two reasons. I wanted to get fit and I wanted to loose a few Kilograms of weight again. So for my first day commuting I didn’t take very much food with me. I think it was only a sandwich and a salad. I thought: “Hey … I’m just loosing weight faster, if I eat less.”
But we all know, this isn’t how it works. By the time riding home, I was starving and did more crawling home than a confident bike ride. That was no fun and after I got home, I looted everything out of the fridge, that was instantly eatable.
Since then I use a meal prepping strategie with little plastic bags. I know, that’s not very ecological, but I wouldn’t to it with heavier reusable plastic boxes. And here comes why:
I press all my meals really flat and get them in the freezer. This has three major advantages:
- It doesn’t need much room in the freezer or my backpack
- Frozen food will not leak
- And it unfreezes faster when it has to
