When I drive into Phoenix from Surprise, I love to make a stop at the Fresh & Easy market. This article is sponsored by Fresh & Easy, which is located in California, Arizona, and Nevada.
Usually grocery shopping is a chore, but at the Fresh & Easy, it’s a pleasure. Aisle after aisle of beautifully packaged products entice me from the shelves! I don’t know if there is another house brand out there that puts as much care and thought into their packaging and presentation as the fresh&easy brand. I wanted to see, touch, and taste everything I saw!
This time around I brought the whole family, and we had a challenge: spend $20 for three meals! I told my husband that he got to choose a meal, the two oldest kids got to choose a meal, and I would choose the last one.
The kids needed a little guidance, but Daniel helped them pick out some dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets and broccoli. More on that later!
Just some nuts, hanging around the Fresh & Easy!
While Daniel took Carter to pick out their ingredients, Vanessa and Harrison and I perused the fresh&easy brand salad dressings. I ended up choosing the fresh&easy baked potato chowder and rolls for my meal, and Daniel grabbed a package of spaghetti and sauce.
I love how Fresh & Easy has wide, brightly-lit aisles and a strong commitment to cleanliness! The stores are smaller yet smarter, as they contain everything that you need and none of the stuff you don’t! They have all self-checkouts, but the employees are right there to help. When I was done scanning all my purchases and paying, my groceries were already bagged up and ready to go!
As for the challenge, we just went over the $20, but the chicken nuggets lasted for two meals!
That evening, after our shopping trip, we had the dinosaur nuggets and broccoli for dinner. A long time ago, Daniel told Carter a story about a baby dinosaur who ate tiny trees, and Carter has loved broccoli ever since! The kids loved “feeding” their broccoli to their dinosaur nuggets!
The Fresh & Easy market has tons of options! If you are a talented chef (unlike me!), you’ll love their selection of meats and spices. Non-chefs (hi!) looking for a quick dinner idea will love their variety of frozen meals. Busy moms will appreciate the fantastic supply of fresh, ready-to-eat meals! And if you’re gluten-free, check out their section just for you!
If you’re looking for a place to find quick, easy, healthy, and inexpensive meals for your family, look no further than your local Fresh & Easy, where grocery shopping is a pleasure, not a chore!
