Freshii, Westport, CT review

      When I moved to the USA 15 years back, it was not only difficult but almost impossible to find choices for good fast food chain. Although a couple was there, it was not as widely known as today. But now from a couple of years ago, thanks to the food entrepreneurs and nutrition enthusiasts, you have the choice for healthy fast food chains.

      Recently we visited Fresii in Westport. The name says it not it? The whole new take on good and real food, offbeat entering Fressii itself give you great vibe. Located in the prime location with excellent shopping options and just a walk away from Saugatuck River, ivory walls and fresh green interior apparently makes you feel fresh.

      We started our day with a few drinks, precisely juices. Freshii menu consists Wraps and salads, burritos and bowls, soups and smoothies all healthy assortments. I went ahead for Mediterranean bowl -quinoa and field greens, feta cheese, kalamata olives, almonds, red onions, cucumber, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, red pepper sauce and you have choices for adding extras like meat, chicken, shrimp or falafel. I added falafel to my bowl. The great part of Freshii is you can customize it as per your taste and make it fun for you. I love that they added crunchy almond, it just goes so really well with the whole Mediterranean theme. You are eating healthy food yet at the same time no compromising on taste, Fresii food taste says it all.

      My husband got  Buddha Satay -rice noodles, broccoli, carrots, cabbage, crispy wontons, green onions, spicy peanut sauce. It was quite scrumptious. Admittedly a very innovative take.  I was hitched by the playfulness of the menu, the way how spicy sauce blends with rice noodles like American take blends with the Asian take.

      It is little expensive, has great portion sizes but worth paying for the freshness for sure. I fell refreshed and surely worth visit next.

      My rating is 3.5 out of 5.

  1. I'm also very glad that eating healthy is almost a trend nowadays! It really pushes new entrepreneurs to come up with alternatives to the classic chains. I'm glad you found a nice one close to you! It does look fresh :)

  2. Freshii is a huge chain here in Chicago. Just know that they're really bad with allergies and/or special diets. My wife is allergic to dairy and was given something she was promised was vegan. One hospital trip and near death experience later... I won't eat there. But if you're not looking for allergies, just to eat healthy, they're great!

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1. My favorite color - Navy blue, peach and off-white. Not that I don't wear any other color, but those colors are readily available in my wardrobe. 2. My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February. The high ceiling, ivory walls, earthy light shades stroked a tropical vibe and the food spoke a lot about Mexico and Latin America. As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
