Hi friends! Today we’re talking about one of my nemeses – grocery shopping. Not because I actually mind it at all – but actually because I just don’t have the time. I’m a working mama, trying to take care of a house and kids and let’s be honest – I don’t always have the time or energy to do huge grocery shopping runs or to cook every night. But let me tell you Fresh & Easy is my salvation. Why? Let me count the ways…
First of all – the size of Fresh & Easy is fabulous. I tend to be one of those every-few-days, buy-what-we-need shopper. That means when I need fresh chicken breasts, milk and toilet paper, I don’t want to head to a large market to pick it up. The size of Fresh & Easy is perfect for me, a little smaller, more convenient, yet they always have just what I need. Fresh & Easy also stocks a variety of organic and gourmet items that are naturally integrated with the rest of the grocery items. It’s not one little section – it’s throughout the store! But maybe my favorite aspect of Fresh & Easy is their “TO GO” section! I mean, just look at this huge area!
This section is a life saver. Again I don’t have the time or luxury to make home-cooked meals each night; however, I always feel better about making the decision on one of these meals versus fast food. There is so much to choose from, from Mexican, American, Italian and Asian cuisines! My boys are partial to the shepherd’s pie, the popcorn chicken and mashed potato sides.
However, for me, I’m trying to watch my calorie intake so the fresh & easy Eat Well meals are perfect for me! Lower calorie and still delicious! So I can eat dinner with my boys at the same time and not feel like I’m missing out. I’m partial to the grilled chicken meals, like the Chicken Stroganoff and their Eat Well soups, like the tomato and red pepper. Yum!
I also love all the fresh salads and sides that Fresh & Easy offers! I’ve been wanting to try it forever and finally snagged a bowl of fresh & easy Southwest Quinoa Salad. So yum!
I had a little then packaged some up in serving-sized mason jars for meals this week.
Looks delish, right? So do you have a Fresh & Easy near you? If so, and you haven’t tried it before, what are you waiting for? Or if it’s been a little while, head over to see their new Summer grilling products along with new delicious frozen microwavable and skillet meals! They also know how lunch time options can get boring, so they just refreshed their grab-and-go fresh sandwiches, salads and wraps. And all of these great new items that are all made without artificial colors or flavors, added trans fats and high-fructose corn syrup. Now you know that’s important to a lot of you out there.
