From Amy's Kitchen: Vegetable Lasagna

From Amy's Kitchen: Vegetable Lasagna

If you've have ever stepped into a health food store, which I'm guessing 99% of you have, chances are quite high that you've heard of Amy's Kitchen. This kitchen kicks out all sorts of tasty dishes, like: soups, pizza, burritos, mac n' cheese, pot pies, and pasta sauce.

These prepared meals and sauces are made with organic vegetables, organic pasta, and whole grains. Not only are they completely trans fat, preservative and GMO's free, they're completely vegetarian. They even use rBST hormone free cheeses, but Amy's Kitchen also makes dairy and gluten free versions of many dishes for folks with dietary intolerances to those ingredients. I must say, I am liking the attention to detail.

The frozen entrées are great in a pinch, especially if you're looking for a quick, healthy lunch. Check out this Vegetable Lasagna.

Layered between organic lasagna noodles, perfectly tender organic spinach, zucchini, and sweet carrot mingle with low fat cheeses and mix with fresh organic tomato sauce. It is a veritable vegetable party.

Taste Delicious! Very flavorful tomato sauce,
pasta had good consistency - not too hard or
squishy, the vegetables had great texture.
The serving size was perfect. I felt
satisfied, but not like I needed to unbutton
my top button on my pants.

The nutritional info looks great considering this is fit for one meal. 680 mg of sodium may seem a little high, but it's recommended to have about 2,300 mg, so if you split that up between 3 meals (766 mg per meal), 680 mg isn't too much at all.

Here are some more pictures. It looks a lot different than the lasagna on the box, but I guess that's to be expected. The actual lasagna didn't have as much cheese and veggie filling, but it still tasted great!

Oh my god, I hate these things! My freshmen year in college, I had extra meal points (we were required to buy a meal plan) to spend at the end of the year so I went to the campus convenience store and bought a bunch of these meals (this is all they had left!). These were pretty gross--I can't believe so many people like them!

i'm agree with you girlwonder76, sodium is really high too. i guess it's a trade-off?

girlwonder, it's 6 WW points, so I personally think that's pretty good for a meal. as for your workout plan, good job on getting started -- I'd say that when you reach the point that you can jog for 20 minutes straight to keep increasing your time. :)

Ooh I am apart of that 99%. I will have to try these out. I am getting sick of the same old frozen food stuff from the supermarkets that are loaded with salt.

These are delicious, but the calorie/ fat content seems a bit high? My husband and I are trying to lose a few lbs each (like 15) and we've been really watching the fat/ fiber ratio. Is this the right approach or do you recommend anything else? (we're also trying for 20 min of brisk walking/ jogging 5 times a week)

Yeah, I like Amy's cheese lasagna. Also the Santa Fe Enchilada Bowl is soooo good!! Same with her burritos. All her food is yummy!

As a vegetarian of 15 years, I swear by all things Amy's! They're all so good, and taste so "fresh" for being prepackaged frozen foods. I just had the lasagna last night - it's wonderful.
