WIAW- Amy’s Kitchen

20 Feb

Jenn, this WIAW link up is too much fun for me to handle! Please be sure to check out Jenn’s blog- Peas and Crayons!

Amy’s is by far my favorite frozen food brand to buy from the store. A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon Amy’s from a Hungry Girl email. Their products sounded too good to be true, basically a dream for someone in love with fresh ingredients. The first product I tried was the Veggie Loaf Whole Meal. Thereafter, I was sold.

So many times frozen foods can taste far from the real thing, but the taste of Amy’s is so homemade to me, maybe because their food is real! On the box you’ll see it says: no additives, no preservatives, and no GMOs. You’ll also be able to read the ingredient list.

When I walk down the frozen foods aisle of the store, I tend to go a little crazy with Amy’s products, but I love being able to pull Amy’s out of the freezer at home. It’s a home cooked meal within minutes.

Although Amy’s wraps, meals, and lasagnas could be a meal on their own, I like to round them out with even more veggies (great for anyone veg-ifying their meals this month for Jenn at Peas and Crayons challenge!), soups, fruits, and other goodies.

Amy’s products currently in my kitchen:

 001

Organic Light in Sodium – Lentil Vegetable Soup, Medium Organic Chili, and Low Fat Cream of Tomato Light in Sodium Soup

All three are the perfect complement to a sandwich! The lentil vegetable and tomato are delicious on a sandwich or on top of a potato! 

019

Tofu Vegetable Lasagna

This is where tofu entered into my diet.

015

Vegetable Pie in a Pocket Sandwich

Perfect with lentil soup and a salad on the side.

005

Cheese Pizza in a Pocket Sandwich

This may just be the best pizza!

017

Non-Dairy Vegetable Pot Pie

Everything about this pot pie is delicious from the crust to the sauce! I don’t know how Amy’s does it!

016

Asian Noodle Stir-Fry

When I’m craving Asian, I know what I’m having!

Amy’s meals that made it onto my menu this past week:

003

002

Amy’s Feta Spinach Wrap with more spinach on the side, chicken, strawberries (making several appearances in the kitchen as well!), Kumato tomatoes, pure pumpkin, and balsamic vinaigrette.

016

013

Amy’s Light and Lean Spinach Lasagna with spinach on the side (I must be on a spinach kick…I was eating a lot of kale!), chickpeas, chicken, strawberries, avocado, sugar snap peas, and balsamic vinaigrette.

012

Amy’s Bean & Rice Burrito- Non-Dairy is perfect with a dollop of yogurt and salsa! Avocado on the side! I should’ve put tortilla chips with this too!

Oh, and don’t forget desert!

004

What’s your favorite frozen food brand or Amy’s product?

    I love Amy’s products! That cheese pizza in a pocket is a new one that I will definitely be trying.

      Me too! I hope you like the cheese pizza in a pocket! The pockets work so well for a lunch!

    I love Amy’s! My favorite is her spinach and feta in a pocket. So good and good for you!

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt February 22, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

      Her spinach and feta in a pocket is definitely high up on my list of favorites. Yes, I love that they’re so good and so good for you!

    I’ve been meaning to try Amy products but they are a bit pricey I found. The frozen meals look so good and healthy too. I’ll just have to try these one day!

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt February 22, 2013 at 5:53 pm #

      They can be a bit pricey! I have found that the price of Amy’s varies from store to store. We’ve been finding Amy’s at BJ’s in bulk for a steal!

    I’ve never tried an Amy’s meal. The one’s you have look good 😀

    Amy central!! I’ve only had the soups–guess I need to branch out

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt February 22, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

      Amy’s soups are good, especially during this time of year! You’ll have to let me know what you think of the products you try! I hope you like them!

    I love Amy’s products! I haven’t had all these though, I would love to try a few. Looks like I will be making a trip to the grocery store this weekend. Happy Friday!! 🙂

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt February 22, 2013 at 5:57 pm #

      Me too! I love pulling them out of the freezer for an easy meal. I remember you recently posted about Costco’s- you might be able to find Amy’s products in bulk there!

    All of the Amy’s products that I have tried so far have been delicious. I especially love their frozen Indian entrees!

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt February 22, 2013 at 5:59 pm #

      I like that they don’t all have the same taste as some frozen brands do! I haven’t tried their frozen Indian entrees yet, but I’m glad to know that they are good! 🙂

    i love their lentil soups! the spinach feta pockets look pretty good too

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt February 22, 2013 at 6:02 pm #

      I love their lentil soups too! Hey, the lentil soup and spinach feta pocket would go pretty good together?
