Being a pilot, you can imagine that I spend a LOT of time in airports and it can be a challenge to find fresh and wholesome fast food in a sea of food courts with burgers & fries, greasy pizza, and coffee shops laden with high fat muffins, sugary pastries and decadent confections.
Lo and behold, Freshii entered the scene! This is my absolute favourite fast food joint! If you come across a Freshii you have to check it out (they're even opening up locations at select Target stores!). They have fresh, made-to-order salads, wraps, soups, burritos, bowls, juices & smoothies, frozen yogurt and breakfast items. Their motto is "Eat. Energize." and they're focused on providing fresh and nutritious meal choices that energize people on the go. Nice! - this is exactly what I crave when I'm on the road and their philosophy is aligned perfectly with my own food philosophy.
Today I ordered one of their delicious Bowls, the Buddha's Satay. This bowl is choc-full of rice noodles, crispy wontons, carrots, broccoli, cabbage, green onions and spicy peanut sauce and I ordered it with chicken, which by the way, is hormone free. Mmm.... delish!
Another favourite of mine is the Spicy Lemongrass Soup. **WARNING** This soup comes in a bucket, seriously - there's enough soup in here to feed a family! So what's in this vat of spicy goodness? Did I mention that it's spicy?? The base is spicy lemongrass broth, rice noodles, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms and cilantro. I absolutely love that it's topped off with cilantro, but if you're like my husband, he absolutely dislikes cilantro, but since they make each bowl to order you can ask them to skip any of the ingredients that you don't like.
So if you see a Freshii in your area be sure to stop and check it out, It may even inspire you to make food like this at home!
Wife, mother and pilot, with a passion for good food.
