Quick And Easy Meals Thanks To Fresh And Easy



Thanks to Fresh & Easy for sponsoring this post and keeping my meals quick and healthy!

Okay, I have a confession to make. Although I know my way around the kitchen and can come up with quite a few meals by myself, I must admit that I am by no means a cooking expert. And it sometimes takes me a long time to plan, prepare and cook a delicious but healthy meal for my family. It’s just a good thing there are stores like Fresh & Easy that can make things easier for moms like me.

Fresh & Easy thinks that fresh, wholesome food should be accessible and affordable to everyone. They offer a range of their own brand products and freshly prepared meals, in addition to other favorite top name brands. Among many other things, Fresh & Easy offers:

  • Fresh bread, fresh meat, fresh fish / Daily deliveries
  • Meal solutions for the time-starved or those who don’t know how or don’t like to cook (Ready to Cook & Kitchen To Go)
  • Wild Oats Organics – the first and only USDA certified organic to-go salads and sandwiches!

If it has the Fresh & Easy name on it, it’s guaranteed to be free from artificial colors and flavors, transfats, high-fructose corn syrup or any other hidden nasties that are out there.

Fresh And Easy Pasta and Sandwiches.jpgAs I was going around the store, I found some ready-to-go meals — different pastas, salads and sandwiches — which makes it very convenient for anyone who may not have that much time to prep a full meal. They also have a bakery area with lots of cakes and pastries. I swear I was so tempted to get one of each flavor there! And that’s why you should never go to a store when you’re hungry.

Fresh And Easy Bakery AreaFresh And Easy stores are smarter and smaller. They have everything you need without any of the stuff you don’t. I love that they have self-checkouts that help me get out quickly. And if I ever need any help while shopping or checking out, I can easily ask any of the friendly Fresh & Easy staff in the checkout area.

Fresh And Easy Mandarin Orange ChickenAfter my Fresh And Easy shopping spree, I started preparing our quick and easy Mandarin Orange Chicken dinner. Our meal was done within just 15 minutes! All I had to do was fry the chicken for about 8-10 minutes, pour in the sauce, cook for about 3 more minutes and voila!

I consider Fresh & Easy one of the best stores I’ve shopped at so far. We just visited it last Sunday but hubby and I are already planning our next visit (and we’ll be sure to get more of their store-brand rocky road ice cream — one of the best we’ve ever had)!

Be sure to check if you have a Fresh & Easy store near you! There are 2 stores on my side of the Bay Area and hopefully there’s one near you too! You won’t regret visiting one!
