Alexia Foods: Great in a Pinch

Tonight was one of those nights when I didn't really feel like making an elaborate meal for dinner. Mostly I just didn't want to have to clean up a big huge mess - I know you know what I'm talking about.

Good thing I had a bag of Alexia fries in the freezer. I just baked them in the oven, steamed up some broccoli, carrots, and other veggies, topped them with melted cheese, and dinner was served. Now I know these aren't the world's healthiest food you can eat, but looking at the ingredients, they're not bad for you either.

Alexia makes all kinds of delicious foods. I always keep a couple bags of their frozen fries in my freezer. I love the Olive Oil, Rosemary & Garlic fries, and my girls love the Waffle-Cut Potatoes with Seasoned Salt.

They also make organic frozen fries like Yukon Gold Julienne Fries with Sea Salt. My favorite has got to be the Sweet Potato Fries. When you bake them, they have the perfect combination of a crispy outside and a soft, tender inside.

At the grocery, I also saw that Alexia makes appetizers now too like Mozzarella Stix, Mushroom Bites, Onion Rings, and Pizza Snacks. These may be good to have in case someone pops in for a surprise visit.

I also saw Mashed Potatoes which I have a weakness for, and Artisan Breads like French Rolls, Focaccia, and Whole Wheat Rolls with Flaxseed.

Alexia makes their foods out of 100% natural ingredients. Not only that, they're also trans fat free. I can't say that much about mainstream frozen foods.

Fit's Tips: Not sure where to find Alexia products? Check out their website for store locations. You can probably find them at your nearest health food store, Whole Foods, or Wild Oats.

Technically I've had the foccacia, I like cheese. I didn't think the garlic bread was super fantastic but it's decent in a pinch.

I haven't tried the garlic fries (don't do garlic) but the onion rings are good and so are the rolls. Sometimes you need crunchy and "fried" and easy.
