Fresh and Easy Quick Meals Saved My Day!

Filed Under: Family Life

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

Summer has been crazy for us.  We have moved and been trying to purge a lot of our things we had in our garage in Southern California.  Not to mention the over 100 degree weather that we have had to battle at least 60% of the time we have been here.

This summer has been crazy!  I am trying to get into a groove and have a routine, but I have really struggled to make that happen.  Some days I am lucky to get dinner on the table.

I can’t tell you how tempted I have been to just go get fast food or serve cereal or popcorn for dinner.  (popcorn is a vegetable right?)

I am being good.  Cooking for my family as much as possible so we don’t spend unneeded money and so we can get healthier and loose the law school weight that my husband and I have both put on.  So I have been trying to find recipes and options that are fast and healthy and don’t cost a ton for the family to eat.

But there are those days when I am just done with trying to make it work, I am needing a break or just out of time to get everything done.

We had one of those days this last week.  I was busy getting ready for the 4th of July sale for the woman and girls clothing boutiques I have been doing.  I had no time to get dinner done while the sale was happening and I needed something I could put in and cook between customers.

At times like these I am so grateful for Fresh and Easy Neighborhood Market that does all the prep work for me.

Ready to cook Meals

So I put all 4 kids in the car and headed over to Fresh and Easy.  We went in and we able to go straight to the family size section of their fresh made ready to cook meals.  There was so many choices!

Fresh and Easy Meal Ideas

I picked out a chicken and cheese macaroni pasta with bacon, some fresh green beans and carrots on the side and some breadsticks for an added bonus!  It took me about 15 minutes to cook and serve and everyone was happy!!!  Can’t beat that!

Fresh to go

Way better then fast food that costs me a ton for our family of 6.  Everyone was loving it!

  1. I just checked the store locator and realized there is a Fresh & Easy in downtown Los Angeles, right near my daughter’s soon to be university. Fresh & Easy is great for the college crowd who usually don’t have the time or the set up to cook, and need to eat healthy on the go.

  2. This looks like such a great alternative to eating out. I wish we had one near us.

  3. Oh my gosh, I miss Fresh and Easy! They made summer in Corona bearable for me. Tell them to come to Pittsburgh, please.

  4. I agree, Fresh & Easy is healthier and more affordable than fast food!

  5. Easy is my motto around here! Five kiddos and this & that…the easier the better, especially with meals/meal planning :)

  7. Fresh and Easy is great for quick meals. I think I’m going to head out to my local store tonight and pickup food to grill!
