    Red face What does "easy-breezier" mean?

    How can I translate the bolded and underlined sentence in Spanish?

    Punch up the antioxidant power even more by seasoning some olive oil and vinegar with a few of the herbs and spices below. Health food doesn't get any easy-breezier!

    It´s part of an article about the healthiest vegetables for everyone. It´s called "5 Veggies that will make your Salad Super-Healthy"

    Please help me!

    Thanks!!

    Easy-Breezy is slang. I don't know the Spanish slang equivalent, but it basically means "facilisimo"
    Health food doesn't get any easy-breezier!; "no puede ser mas facil!"

    Kelly, Is it like "piece of cake"? In that case in spanish we'd say "una pavada"... have you ever heard that?

    Yes, mem286. It is just like "piece of cake",so it must be "una pavada". I have not heard the expression before, but thanks to you I can add it to my vocabulary.
    Cheers! Kelly

    HI Kelly, in Spain:

    esto es coser y cantar

    eso está chupado ,pronounced: "chupao"(very colloguial and typical from Madrid)
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    I've also heard "es una papa" meaning that something is very easy, and this expression is listed in the Urban Dictionary.

    Hi exxcentrica and mem286, I love the expressions "chupado" y "es una papa". I was wondering, however, if they also mean "uncomplicated", "light".
    The expression "Easy Breezy" is slang to indicate that something is easy, uncomplicated, etc. It's becoming popular, but it started as a slogan for CoverGirl -a cosmetics company. “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful Cover Girl”.
    Fashion writers use the phrase to describe light and uncomplicated clothes. "easy, breezy feminine clothes".
    students might say: easy breezy homework.
    easy, breezy: never too much, never too heavy.

    Are the expressions "una pavada" "chupado", or "es una papa" still right to describe "easy-breezy"?

    How interesting Kelly!!!!!
    Una pavada, o una papa se usan sí, para referirse a algo sin complicaciones o algo fácil de realizar, Ej. Una tarea escolar puede ser una papa o una pavada, por lo fácil de hacer.

    Pero NO para el caso de la ropa o la moda que mencionás en tu ejemplo...

    A veces la palabra "pavada" se usa también en forma un poco despectiva, porque es demasiado fácil, o por estúpido. Ej Dijo pavadas toda la tarde (es decir, dijo estupideces toda la tarde)

    La palabra que propuso Exx. no se usa en Argentina.

    Hello, Selly:


    For what I've read in this thread, I think an equivalent of easy-breezier could be "pan comido", "Comer sano es pan comido", meaning it's really an uncomplicated task.

    Saludos.
