Thanks again to Fresh City for bringing me a delicious, healthy lunch and sponsoring this giveaway! The winner of the gift card is Emily!
Work day lunches are one of those things that are always on my mind. I try my best to make enough dinner so we can have leftovers for lunch. When I have time on a Sunday, I try to make a big one pot meal for us to pack for the week, but otherwise I’m always at a loss for what we should bring for lunch.
When a representative from Fresh City sent me an email asking if they could bring me lunch, I was incredibly excited. Fresh City wraps are our go-ton on drives to NJ. While I hate the long trip, I always look forward to a buffalo chicken or Greek salad wrap to keep hunger at bay.
Fresh City is promoting some healthy new menu items, and to my delight, when my lunch delivery arrived on Friday, I received them all!
- Powerhouse Salad – this salad packs a punch and includes everything but the kitchen sink: edamame, cranberries, grapes, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, almonds, and cheddar cheese. The low fat, low calorie Power dressing gives the salad a great taste with a power boost of energy.
- Napa Valley Turkey Sandwich – who doesn’t love turkey, avocado, and bacon together? Fresh City adds a unique twist to this classic sandwich by adding a lemon chive aioli dressing.
- Pomegranate Acai Smoothie – cool off after a tough workout with a freshly blend of pomegranate, acai, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
I love eating meal salads, but I’m often left hungry after. The Powerhouse Salad was so full of different, healthy, and filling toppings, that I only made it through about 3/4 of the salad before I was full. I loved all of the textures and flavors and being able to fit so many healthy nutrients into the middle of my day. I would most definitely get this salad again and was pretty much craving it all weekend.
For my dessert, I sipped on the Pomegranate Acai Smoothie throughout the afternoon. It had only a hint of sweetness and a whole lot of berry flavor. I love that a smoothie like this really packs a nutritional punch while tasting as good as a milkshake or other dessert. I paired the smoothie with some cinnamon sugar pita crisps that Fresh City sent along. Delicious.
I was completely full after my salad, smoothie, and snack, so I brought the Napa Valley Turkey Sandwich home to share with my husband. We didn’t have dinner plans, and since our brains were mush by Friday evening, we split the sandwich for dinner, and we were both completely full with just the half. The sandwich was very large and stuffed with fresh turkey, bacon, and avocado. I loved the light, lemony dressing; it was the perfect choice to cut the richness of all of the other ingredients and to add a tang to the sandwich.
I would definitely order all of the items from Fresh City again, and I hope that they build more locations around Boston. Their food is definitely one of my favorite healthy and quick options, and there’s so much of the menu I want to try.
Fresh City wants one of you to be able to have lunch on them too! They’re giving me a $15 gift card for one lucky reader. In the dead of winter, a little lunch treat goes a very long way.
