The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
…and also the busiest!
As you all know, Christmas time is here! Everyone in the family is so excited and full of cheer. The kids see commercials showing off fancy toys and shouting out, “Mommy I want that!” every 5 seconds. They have officially started their never ending “wish-list” for things they absolutely NEED but really just WANT. Needless to say, the Holiday season keeps our family pretty busy. We find ourselves out shopping more, which leaves little time for cooking. So when Panda Express reached out to us to help them do a giveaway, I was ecstatic!
Our family is a HUGE fan of Panda Express. Their orange chicken is a staple entree that is really easy to fall in love with. If you watched my latest vlog, we stopped by our local Panda Express to enjoy dinner together after a long day of shopping and picking out our Christmas tree!
By the time it we were all finished, everyone was starving. My husband and I had absolutely no energy left to cook anything, so we wanted an option that would please everyone and also be a healthier option to McDonald’s or other fast food restaurants.
Did you guys know Panda Express offers meals that are 300 calories or less, made with real veggies, and have at least 8 grams of protein? If you know me, you know I am always trying to make sure I am getting all of my protein, especially since I’ve decided to incorporate lifting weights into my weight loss journey.
If you are ever looking to make a healthier choice while you’re dinning at Panda Express, all you have to do is look out for their Wok Smart logo!
My favorite Panda Express entree is the Grilled Chicken Teriyaki and my husband enjoys the Kung Pao Chicken. Honestly, I don’t even think he realizes how healthy these options are! The fact that their sauces are hand made makes it even better.
Landen usually gets the orange chicken but the veggies in the Kung Pao chicken really caught his eye. He says he’s going to try it when we go back, so I’ll definitely let you guys know how he likes it.
This is probably the main reason why we love going to Panda Express. There is literally something that everyone can chose from and be satisfied. Our location can get pretty busy because everyone loves it! Thankfully our location moves the line along quickly, we can always find a seat and the staff is extremely nice.
I also love how involved Panda Express is on a local level. They are always doing things to help support their communities. For the rest of the year, Panda Express is offering fundraisers to organizations for the Richmond Heights community!
If you are a local reader, please be sure to reach out to Panda Express to put together a fundraiser for your school, church or sports team!
