The Fresh Prince of Cedar Park

After a few days of indulgent eating and drinking, I decided we needed to go for a healthier option on Saturday evening for dinner.  Someone posted that there was a new fast healthy eatery by the Grove, Freshii, so we thought we’d give it a try.   The concept was fresh, fast, and healthy with the idea of making healthy food convenient and affordable.  We went in and were the only customers, despite a full parking lot, which were likely headed to the Grove.  The staff was super friendly and eager to help us, giving recommendations along the way.  We were advised that salads and wraps were a little bit lighter, while bowls and burritos were heavier.  It took me a while to decide and I finally selected a buffalo chicken wrap.  Mike had prescreened the menu and knew immediately that he wanted to try the Buddha Satay Bowl with Chicken.  Unfortunately, their frozen yogurt machine was broken, so I was unable to try a smoothie this time.

It took the team a little bit to make our food, but it was worth the wait.  My wrap was full of flavors with chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, buffalo sauce, blue cheese, ranch Greek yogurt, and carrots.  It was tasty and yet healthy.  It was also the perfect portion for me.  Mike’s bowl had a lot of great ingredients, including: chicken, noodles, broccoli, carrots, onions, and a peanut sauce.  His dish needed a bit more flavor, so he kicked it up a notch with sriracha.  We both agreed that my dinner was a little bit tastier than Mike’s.  I had a better meal and a better outlook of Freshii.  Mike felt like it tasted like healthy food.  I have a feeling that we will return, but I am not sure that it will be a place that we frequent too often.
