Amy’s Kitchen – Products worth reviewing

I’ve been a vegetarian for many years and besides the humane aspect of not wanting to eat animals, I also became a vegetarian for health reasons. It also helped that I’ve always enjoyed eating fruits and vegetables and I grew up with a family that is health conscious. But even vegetarians can have limited choices when it comes to variety, especially if you’re dining out or at other people’s homes. Fresh produce are always included in my meals and I supplement my protein with soy (tofu and such). So whenever I find a company that makes really great vegetarian frozen foods, I am eager to try them and will most likely stick with them.

Amy’s Kitchen really caught my attention a few years ago when I stumbled upon them at a local supermarket. I thought to myself – these products are all vegetarian meals and they’re at a mass supermarket! I just had to give them a try. There were so many choices to select from and when I looked in detail, they even made food for vegans and people with certain food allergies (such as gluten and wheat and dairy/lactose). What a wonderful assortment of dishes to choose from – I had thought. From then on, I was hooked and I purchased Amy’s frozen meals quite regularly, especially when I didn’t have time to cook a vegetarian dish for myself or I was in a hurry.

All of Amy’s meals are made with organic ingredients and they are wholesome and satisfying. If you don’t think vegetables can make you full, then you’ll have to give Amy’s meals a try. But their meals are more than just vegetables thrown together – they incorporate real homemade recipes and use only the finest organic flour, rice, cheese, vegetables, legumes, etc. to make them truly nutritious and fulfilling.  To me, they taste like comfort food; when you want something homemade but just don’t have the time to make it.    I try not to eat conventionally-made food too often, but with a young child in the house, it’s always nice to get a bit of wholesome and naturally-prepared frozen food as a go to when I need it. And I wasn’t really satisfied with other frozen foods out on the market nor do they use organic and all-natural ingredients. So Amy’s Kitchen was a great fit for what I needed as a convenient and quick meal.

Amy’s Kitchen was kind enough to send me some free product coupons to try out some of their new products. Although my favorites are the Veggie Loaf Whole Meal, burritos, and Vegetable Lasagna, I’ve never tried their desserts so I decided to try their chocolate cake. Their chocolate cakes are Vegan, so no animal by-products are used. At first I was skeptical at the taste because how can cake made without butter or eggs be good? Well, I was indeed proven wrong because the chocolate cake was extremely moist and dense. It tasted just as good as cake made with butter and eggs. Perhaps it’s the real and natural ingredients used instead of “flavored” ingredients – even real organic cocoa is used! However, the portion is a bit small but since I’m a big chocolate cake fanatic, any portion less than the size of my hand is considered “small”. The chocolate flavor was intense but not bitter or dry and the cake had such a delicate moistness to it that I wanted to pop the whole thing in my mouth.

So whether you’re a vegetarian or not and you just want something healthy, natural, and delicious, then give Amy’s a try. They make everything you could make on your own, except the convenience of just popping it in the microwave or heating it on the stove top. The company is family owned and operated and they dedicate their entire business to provide consumers with wholesome, natural, and superior frozen food. They do not use any Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) or preservatives and their cartons are made  from unbleached boards without any poly coating on the inside and only clay coating on the outside. Their plastic wrapping does not contain plasticizers which may leak into foods so it’s safe to heat in the microwave oven. Overall, Amy’s products are a great choice for your health and for the environment as well.

Amy’s products include pizza, beans and chili, kids meals, soups, pasta sauces, and so much more. You can find their products at most supermarkets and natural food stores. They have such a varied assortment of products to choose from, you can never go hungry! For more information about Amy’s Kitchen, please visit their website: www.amys.com.
