It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Fresh and Easy. But now I'm an even bigger fan because they're coming out with their EatWell healthy meal options that are fresh, convenient and best of all they're DEE-licous!!!
Each meal contains 25% or less of your daily caloric intake, which means, you can have four of these meals and still be within the daily guidelines based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Each individual packaging clearly displays the calorie, fat, saturated fat and the sodium content, which is very important when you're trying to lose weight.
The EatWell launch consists of 17 new items including Fresh Ready Meals, Soups, Salads, Sandwiches and Sushi-all made in the Fresh & Easy kitchen. I was lucky enough to sample a number of these products at Fresh & Easy's home office and I must say that I agree with their motto, "no compromise on taste". All the dishes were fresh, flavorful and I didn't feel like I was missing anything when I ate them.
Here is a list of some of the dishes I sampled:
Arroz con Pollo-Seasoned chicken breast and rice with crimini mushrooms, bell peppers, peas and tomatoes blended with herbs and spices. $3.99
Bruschetta Chicken-Whole wheat pasta topped with juicy chicken breast and sweet tomato sauce, sunblushed tomatoes and parmesan cheese. $3.99
Teriyaki Salmon-Grilled salmon fillet on a bed of brown rice with broccoli, bell peppers and sweet teriyaki sauce. $4.99 (MY FAVORITE!)
Spicy Tuna Square-Layers of brown rice, roasted edamame, gingered carrots and spicy tuna mix. $3.99 (MY 2nd FAVORITE!)
Veggie Hummus Wrap-Crisp cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots and spring lettuce mix with red pepper hummus wrapped in a sundried tomato tortilla. $2.99 (The dressing is to die for!)
Turkey Chili-Hearty chili with lean turkey, onions, carrots, tomato, kidney beans and bell peppers with herbs and spices. $1.99
My husband and I have taken an oath to eat better in our daily life and these convenient, healthy and reasonably-priced meals will definitely help us accomplish that.
I know you're probably wondering, "How you can I get my hands on these new EatWell meals?" Starting April 7, 2010 they will have these products, and many more, available at your local Fresh & Easy grocery stores so you can experience the goodness for yourself!
Thank you Fresh & Easy for allowing me to be part of such an awesome event!!!
