Amy's Light & Lean frozen meals
Natural and organic foods specialist Amy's, Santa Rosa, Calif., says its new frozen entrees won't weigh you down with the wrong types of ingredients.
Even the name, Amy's Light & Lean Meals, says it all. Amy's says the new line has four meals ($4.89 each) each containing fewer than 300 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 590 mg of sodium.
"Amy’s Light & Lean Meals were created in response to consumer requests for meals that would fit their diet plans," the company says. "As with all Amy’s products, Light & Lean Meals are organic, vegetarian, and are made without the use of trans fats or GMOs."
