Amy's - Healthy Eating on the Go

As much as I love to cook, I love to dine out. Especially during the holiday season I'm trying to cook more and eat out less to watch the calories and the cash. A girl can only cook so much though (truth be told I hate doing dishes and have to be in the right frame of mind for the chore) so I look for healthy alternatives I can bring to work for office lunches. Enter Amy's.

Amy's is a family run business started in 1987. They make a variety of quality organic and vegetarian frozen and canned meal options from pizzas and soups to desserts. On those days when I do enjoy Amy's for lunch I don't feel like I just ruined my morning workout, I feel sated and happy.

 There are so many Amy's products to choose from, but here are a few of my favorites:
  • Black bean chili
  • Brown rice and vegetables bowl (I LOVE broccoli and there are also red onions and mushrooms to add to the hearty dish)
  • Mexican casserole
  • Bean and cheese burrito
  • Indian mattaar paneer (cheese with peas)
  • Broccoli pot pie (see above for my love of all things broccoli)
  • Split pea soup


  1. Our household LOVES their mac and cheese, not high on the healthy option but super high on how delicious it is! Also their black bean veggie soup is super yummy.

  2. mmmm! im also a big fan of the brown rice bowl
    and cheese & peas!
