As soon as summer arrives, I feel as if my grocery shopping trips multiply 10 fold.  With all the food consumed when everyone is home, I have to find fun and creative ways to keep snack time and meals fun without falling into tempting foods that are not good for us. Because of this, I often find myself running around town in my car, using a lot of fuel.  I love shopping at Ralphs, because I can find affordable and fresh ingredients and at the same time, save on gas by participating in theirFuel Program.  The program is so easy!  Here are all the details on how you can earn points:

  1. Spending on Groceries (normal exclusions apply): $1 in Groceries = 1 fuel point.
  2. Earn double fuel points on Gift Card, prepaid phone and airtime purchases (normal exclusions apply). Earn 20c per gallon for every $100 spent on gift cards everyday!
  3. Earn fuel points on prescriptions.

You can earn up to .20 cents off per gallon of fuel! Isn’t that a great deal? For every 100 points earned, you can redeem .10 cents per gallon up to .20 cents per gallon (when you redeem 200 fuel points).  You can also redeem your fuel points at participating Shell Stations for up to .10 cents per gallon. This is going to save our family a lot of money this summer!

One of the best ways that I keep my family happy, besides saving money at the gas station and using it towards fun activities, is to be refreshed and at the same time, nourished with great ingredients, is with agua fresca during the summer. 

My summers as a young girl consisted of traveling to Mexico and helping my grandmother at her convenience store.  I chopped fruit and stirred in sugar into giant glass containers to sell agua fresca by the cup to passersby. Now, I get to relive those times with my family and not only reminisce about my grandmother’s tasty agua fresca recipes but also create my own to enjoy with my family on a hot summer day.

One of the things I love about making agua fresca is the endless possibilities of flavors one can create.  I drove over to Ralph’s and stocked up on produce, including Simple Truth Organic™ spinach and limes to make this quick backyard cooler. Ralph’s has a wonderful selection of produce and meats to accompany this drink.  Carne asada, grilled fish and burgers all pair perfectly with this spinach and lime agua fresca.  This healthy twist to the classic lemonade is a great way to incorporate leafy greens to any meal. I also love knowing that by purchasing these ingredients at Ralph’s I am helping my family save money through the fuel rewards program.

Spinach Lime Agua Fresca This summer, shop smart and save on fuel at your local Ralph’s store. The freshest ingredients are readily available for your family cook-outs and get-togethers. Have you started saving at the pump by buying your groceries at Ralph’s too? I know I sure have!
