Debbie Meyer GreenBoxes & GreenBags

Disclosure review
2015 has been the year of getting really strict about our grocery budget. Once that money is gone, it is gone. I’ve become a pro at shopping sales and getting great deals on fresh fruit and vegetables. But until recently, I haven’t been a pro at getting them all used up before they spoiled.  That all changed when I put the Debbie Meyer® GreenBoxes™ and GreenBags™ to the test.

Our set arrived just in time- I had just came home from the grocery store. There are pieces of just about every size from 16 oz through 64 oz. The GreenBags™ came in a 20 piece set. And just like with the GreenBoxes™, they can be reused! Each bag can be used 8-10 times!

I thought it would be fun to try a side by side comparison of one of my favorite fresh fruits- the cherry tomato. I put them in one of the Greenboxes™ and snapped a photo.

As you can see, there really isn’t too much of a difference on day 1 vs day 7. If I would have kept them in their original plastic container, they would have likely been completely unusable by day 5.

The holidays are here and I’ve got one big goal during this December season- to treat my body well by feeding it a lot of fruit and vegetables. It can be so hard this time of year! We are triple booked with holiday parties on the weekends. I’ve decided that I can have my cake and eat it too, which is why I’m following the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time, I eating nice and clean. Think big salads with grilled chicken on top and yummy vegetable frittatas. The other 20% of the time, I’m going to enjoy all the season has to offer. And I’m going to do it without guilt because when the weekend is over, I’m going right back to my eating plan.

Tips for using GreenBoxes™

  • They are dishwasher safe, but only on the top rack.
  • They can be used in the microwave, but the container will be hot. Handle with care.
  • Do not use on the stove or in the oven.

The GreenBags™ have also been a hit at our house. My favorite way to use them is with our pears. Our family loves pears, but they ripen so fast! The GreenBags™ have helped them stay fresher longer, allowing me to not have to make a midweek run back to the grocery store. This has been great for us- since we’re on a tight food budget and it seems as though ever trip to the grocery store always results in us buying more than what we were just going to stop in quick for!

Tips for using the GreenBags™:

  • Your produce should be dry before you place it in the bag.
  • Your fruit/vegetable should contain moisture (the moisture that builds up in the bag can be wiped out, try to keep the bag as dry as possible).
  • Assign each bag a type of produce and reuse. Make an apple bag, pear bag, and so on.
  • Instead of using twist ties, fold the over the top of the bag.

    We are forever buying tomatoes non stop. I love the idea that they can be stored in these to increase and prolong freshness because the greenhouse ones go bad so fast.

  2. I am a fruit and veggie lover. So I always have grapes on hand. They seem to go bad faster than other fruits do. I would keep those in these bags and the little carrots. And really, most all the veggies I keep on hand to munch on.. the raw broccoli, peppers, etc…

    I would say we would mainly store cukes, lettuce, and strawberries those are the main fruit and veggies that we seem to always have in our fridge yet they never last long and with Walmart as our only grocery store choice the produce is never top notch anyway

  4. I would store strawberries in the containers. Strawberries seem to get rotten one or two days after I buy them. Lettuce is another item that I would like to try storing in the containers.

  5. Definitely my fresh salad fixings like lettuce, tomatoes, sliced carrots, celery and mushrooms. Those always go bad. Once spring rolls around…strawberries for sure!

    I would store lettuce, cucumber, and strawberries in these awesome containers. Seems that these are the items we keep the most in our fridge that tend to go bad sooner then we get to use them all up

  7. I would definitely store onion and peppers in my Debbie Meyer products. They seem to be the things that I need storage for most often.

  8. I make a lot of soup during the winter, so I would use it to store already chopped up carrots, celery, and onions to have at the ready. These are great storage containers!

  9. I would store cabbage, green peas, cut up tomatoes and cucumbers. I would also store my lingonberry jam which I eat daily.

    Halos!! My little girl loves halos, and peeling them, putting them in these bowls, that would be perfect, especially for her lunches.
