You can vacuum seal most anything cooked or not. With some of the older machines sealing something soft like muffins meant crushing them. Some new machines have an "instant seal" button. Once the air is removed push the button and it seals right then with out crushing your food. You can get various attachments for them too like containers and jar sealers. There are pretty cheap compared to the money you will save on prepackaged meals. I've found some at as little as $30 and as much as $300. I paid about $100 for mine and use it all the time. Most retail stores sell them.

There is a type of French cuisine focused around vacuum sealers. The raw uncooked ingredients are placed in to a bag with seasoning or marinade, sealed and left for 20m or so. Then the bag (the entire thing) is usually boiled. It's done with several types of food and i've heard it tastes great. I know using these things to marinade foods is great. When the air is vacuumed out it causes the pores of the food to expand and allows the marinade to penetrate better. Twenty minutes in the refrigerator is all you need.

I work a messed up schedule and i never get a traditional lunch break. A lot of times i end up eating in the car between calls. These two items have been lifesavers, not to mention the stress relief on my wallet.

Thanks, laf.
I'll definitely check into one of those.
Have you tried the Vitamix blender? I think you might find that very useful too, if you like making smoothies, shakes, ice cream, sorbet, soup, or grinding your own wheat. It's versatile, and it's worth it in the long run.

The blender costs about $600 Canadian, so think about it this way: $600 over a 5 year period is $120. So, you'd be paying $10 a month for five years, and the machine would obviously last longer than that. That's Canadian currency, so it would be even cheaper for you. $10 a month is nothing. One smoothie costs $3 or $4 at Jugo juice or Orange Julius. I make smoothies daily, or enough for two days, so it's worth it for me.
It's good for soups too. It is something to consider. They often have demos. Check it out, and if the price is bothering you, consider what I've said.

Greetings Zombie Zero

I find a great lunch for me is a smoothie soy, cow or goat's milk, fruit, little protein powder and whatever healthy goodies you can throw in there. Greens powders, Chlorella or Spirlina both green super foods avaliable at health food stores.I like to have a sandwich as well, use a good bread like spelt, kamut or good old whole wheat. I like tomato, cucumber, vegetarian mayo and lots of alfalfa sprouts. Sprouts are very high in many vitamins and minerals. Great enegry food.

It takes me about 15 mins to make this in the moring and I feel its very worth it.

Hope I helped

Can you not do all that in a 20 blender?

Anyway... back on topic.

You could always have a bowl of cereal as suggested in another thread.
