During this time of year, it can be a real struggle to stay on top of eating healthy & not over indulging with all of the holiday parties and get togethers.  At Sharky’s, it is completely possible to enjoy an awesome fast-casual meal, and not consume a huge amount of calories. This is why I LOVE the “Get it Naked” Menu.  Featuring items with lower calories and lower fat, the “Get it Naked” menu, has a lot of good options, with tons of flavor.

Del Taco’s Fresh New Fresca Bowls & Giveaway! Ends 10/30/14

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.
