Del Taco’s Fresh New Fresca Bowls & Giveaway!

It’s times like these that I really can use something that’s quick and easy for lunch or dinner. When anything and everything is trying to get in my way and slow me down, and I don’t have any time to cook a meal for myself.  A sore throat and getting sick. A jury duty notice that I have to get switched to another date when school is not in session, car insurance issues that shouldn’t be happening but are because the new guy in charge just isn’t very nice (and I have a VERY OLD car too, no reason for a +$200 price hike! GRRR) that is ending up being very time-consuming to get straightened out. Then you have Del Taco who is ready to step in and help save the day! The answer to what’s for dinner or lunch when I don’t have the time or energy to make something for myself. The perfect escape to take a short break from all the stress that’s going on around me. Wether you are busy with work, life, carting the kids all around town to their activities, or anything else, Del Taco can help you answer the age-old question of what’s for dinner when you just don’t have the time, or you just don’t feel like cooking and want a break.

Then you just have the decision to make on what to order. 😉 I have the perfect answer to that part! Fresca Bowls!

Del Taco recently launched three new Fresca Bowls: premium, made-to-order bowls loaded with fresh ingredients. Fresca Bowls are the latest addition to the Del Taco menu, and are packed to the rim with fresh, flavorful, high-quality ingredients and are the ideal choice when looking for an alternative to the standard tortilla.

Del Taco Fresca Bowls

Perfectly priced at just $4 each, Del Taco’s Fresca Bowls are served on a refreshing bed of fresca lime rice and seasoned black beans, and are offered in the following three varieties:

  • Southwest Grilled Chicken & Veggie Bowl combines fresh-grilled chicken and a blend of fire-roasted, red and green bell peppers, caramelized onions and flavorful Poblano pepper
  • Pollo Asado Grilled Chicken Bowl is made with marinated, fresh-grilled chicken, hand-chopped pico de gallo salsa, onions and cilantro
  • Fire Roasted Veggie Bowl features Del Taco’s tangy green chile sauce, freshly-chopped pico de gallo salsa, and a blend of roasted vegetables

Fresca Bowls

The Pollo Asado Grilled Chicken Bowl (500 calories) and Southwest Grilled Chicken & Veggie Bowl (530 calories) are each loaded with 4.5 ounces of fresh-grilled chicken per serving, significantly exceeding the amount of protein included in bowls offered by Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) and fast-casual competitors. The Fire Roasted Veggie Bowl (450 calories) is an ideal meatless option.

Jan’s Health Bar: Fresh and Healthy Eats!

Jan’s Health Bar: Fresh and Healthy Eats!

By: Erin

After all the fried fair food and BBQ posts from the summer, it’s time to be good and have something a bit more on the healthier side, that is still very tasty and delicious. It’s fall now, but this week is supposed to warm up well into the 80’s again so I have the best place ever for you to go chill out at and relax. It’s Jan’s Health Bar in Huntington Beach (also in Costa Mesa)! It is just a jump, hop and a skip away from the beach! Located on Main Street, it is just a few short blocks away from the beach.

When Jan’s contacted me about heading over to try out their menu, I couldn’t refuse. Smoothies? Summer Salads? A refreshing Chicken Salad Sandwich on such a warm summer’s day? Best of all, Acai bowls? You don’t have to ask me twice! Well, that would go for anything food related… but that’s besides the point.

You are probably wondering now why I am so excited about this as it’s not deep-fried anything. Take a look for yourself, I hope you can smell the freshness through the pictures that I was able to capture of Jan’s amazing offerings.

One More Time, Rolling On Again With Cottonelle

Disclosure: Today’s discussion is sponsored by Cottonell. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.

One more time, We’re gonna celebrate, Oh yeah, all right, Don’t stop the dancing…. oh hey there! I’m here rolling on with Cottonelle for our third and last installment of our #LetsTalkBums series. I am sure you have seen the Cherry Healey comercials on TV and here on my blog. It has been an interesting and entertaining few weeks here with Cherry’s taboo conversation,  but what’s not to love? Who doesn’t like to feel fresh and clean? Isn’t that a good enough reason to celebrate? One more time, Cottonell’s got me feeling so fresh and clean, We’re gonna celebrate….

So in case you don’t know what to look for, take a look at the pic below. Those are the lifesavers you will want to be on the lookout for the next time you are out shopping for the dry companion that goes along with these wonderful wipes.

Cottonelle-wipes Lets Talk Bums
Trust me, if you add these amazing bum wipes to your dry routine you will know what I am talking about! You’ll feel fresher and cleaner for it. If you don’t believe me, check this out! It’s a good laugh at the least, while listening and watching folks talk about their bums ;)

Thoughts?  There are times that these wipes would come in especially handy, and not only for myself and my family. Last month when my elderly little cat, named Moe was in his last days (I am sure many of you remember that cute adorable little black and white tuxedo cat who would frequent my blog! 😉 those wipes sure came in handy to help me make him as clean, fresh and comfortable as he possibly could have been. I can imagine these would also come in handy for the younger pets as well that are not yet housebroken completely. Not only that, but I am sure our pets would like to feel nice and fresh and clean all day long as well!

Follow along with us and join the conversation by tweeting @Cottonelle on Twitter and using #LetsTalkBums You can also find Cottonelle on Facebook and share there as well! Will you or have you given it a go yet? Where to next!?

Cottonnelle-paper-and-wipes Until next time! Happy Wiping! What are you going to celebrate now that your bum is ultra clean? 😉
