Gas Prices and Healthy Eating

Gas Prices Healthy Eating
Gas prices have been at a record high this summer – and are now slowly coming down. At the time this article is being published, the average price for a gallon of regular gas in Connecticut is hovering at around $4.35. So, we’re all looking for ways to cut costs just a little. We’re driving more conservatively… no more pedal to the metal. We’re driving less, trying to consolidate our errands and make fewer trips to the store, the pharmacy, and the pump. But what about healthy eating? Everyone knows that junk food costs less than fresh-from-the-garden ingredients… packaged foods are cheaper than homemade and hand-prepared meals.

But at Freskos, we come from humble beginnings. We know what it’s like to work hard and feel frustrated that so much of our hard-earned paycheck is going into the gas tank. That’s why we offer the Hamden community fresh, tasty Greek cuisine that’s affordable, too. In fact, a healthy dinner for a family of four costs less than a tank of gas. (And some of our menu items are available for about the same price as a gallon of gas!) Let’s take a look...

  • Can you believe a serving of our lemony Greek chicken soup with orzo – called avgolemono – is only $5? Add some pita bread (just $3!) and hummus ($5.50) and you’ve got an affordable meal.
  • A family of four can order four gyros for just $10.99 each... $43.96 (+tax) is much less than a tank of gas!
  • Vegetarians love our veggie rolls, and priced at $7.50 they’re an affordable option (plus they come with tzatziki!)
  • A side of gyro, chicken, tofu or pork is only $5.00 and shrimp is just $6.00 – add these on to a fresh, delicious Greek salad priced at just $10.99.
  • If you’re not a big eater, many of our portions are big enough to share – try the lamb burger with a soup and a drink, all for $14.99!
  • Here’s another way Freskos can help you save – we offer delivery through partners like GrubHub, UberEats and DoorDash. (Partner delivery fees may apply, but think of what you’re saving on gas!) So, call and place your order – or order online – and your delicious, healthy food will be delivered to your doorstep.

Come in to Freskos for healthy, authentic Greek recipes, at prices that won’t break the bank.

Proudly serving the New Haven, Hamden, Cheshire, Wallingford and North Haven Communities.
