Someone told me about this market a while back and I finally made a trip to check it out! I have to say I was impressed and I will be going back!

The name of the market is People’s. Everything they sell is vegetarian and organic. All their produce is organic and their prices are very reasonable (which is a plus)!! Of course you do not need to be a vegetarian to shop here. I believe majority of their stuff is healthy… I would say all, but I didn’t look at every single item 🙂 I walked away with a lot of produce, spelt flour (sold in bulk), splet pasta and much much more.

I encourage you to check out their site and if you live in the area GO check them out. It cost about $15 a year (but you get 10% every purchase) to be a member, HOWEVER, your first time is free (no membership required)…so go check it out and if you don’t like it then you don’t have to go back and you have lost nothing, but hopefully you walked away with some good stuff and will want to go back!

 

Dinner time…. Amy’s Kitchen December 23, 2008

Amy's KitchenI don’t know about you, but I sure don’t always have time to cook a healthy meal every single night! About a year ago I discovered frozen meals made by Amy’s Kitchen. Get this… they are frozen meals that are organic, healthy, have natural ingredients, are not processed and most cook in 5 minutes or less.  What more could you ask for right?

Amy’s Kitchen has a variety of meals to choose from such as pizza, soups, brown rice bowls, pastas and apple pie. One thing I like about Amy’s Kitchen meals is that they tailor some of their foods for people who are lactose intolerant (such as myself) and offer pizzas, burritos and enchiladas that don’t have cheese. I might also mention all the products are vegetarian, but don’t let that scare you.   There are plenty of meals I haven’t had such as the baked ziti, the toaster pops, the lasagna or the veggie burgers, but I can honestly say that I haven’t had a bad meal yet.

I think for those who are living the busy life and don’t have the time to necessarily cook every night and are looking for something healthy and easy I think an Amy’s Kitchen meal might just be what you are looking for.

Where to buy? I have found them at WholeFoods, Henry’s, Vons (aka Safeway) and believe it or not Target (although Target has a very limited selection).  Amy’s Kitchen meals also typically cost more than your average frozen meal, but hey… wouldn’t you rather spend an extra buck or two on something that isn’t processed and that is healthy rather than a medical bill down the line because you ate too many processed foods and your arteries were clogged?

On a side note I saw Amy’s Kitchen burritos featured on How it’s Made and I was so fascinated and so excited to see a product created with real ingredients!
