Meatless Monday, Wednesday And Friday Challenge


This week I'm going meatless the easy way.  I stopped at Meijer and picked up some frozen vegetables from Green Giant.  My favorite is the garden vegetable medley and the teriyaki vegetables, and I could eat those two everyday.  My afternoon snack is fruit and for breakfast, it will be peanut butter sandwiches. I need to consume some protein and fat, while I'm on this challenge.

I found another quick microwave dinner called Amy's.  It's a vegetarian line of frozen meals, pizza, soups and beans.  They have a variety meals that are good choice but if your are following a healthy lifestyle, use the key chart on their site. The symbols give you information on each product.

The only problem I have with Amy's foods, it's not cheap so next time I will look for sales. Today, I only bought one item. Has anyone eaten any meals from this brand and how does it compare to Lean Cuisine, Weight Watchers or Healthy Choice?

Participants for next week's challenge:

  1. I've tried a few of Amy's meals and they are pretty good. Nothing special to me, I usually go for the ones on sale. New follower here from the Mom's Monday Mingle Blog Hop. Hope you will stop by my site and check it out as well!

    1. Thanks, for visiting Michelle. I will see how they taste, if they are just okay, I might have to find some meatless Lean Cuisines.

  2. I'm with Michelle...I usually go with the ones that are on sale. Which usually means Marie Callendar's. Which may explain why we don't do frozen meals too often...

  4. I agree, Amy's Meals are so wonderful! I cannot eat them as they contain nightshades, but I used to eat them before I found out about my sensitivity. They are a nice alternative to things like Lean Cuisine which is not healthy. I love that you are blogging about your meatless adventures, I would love to read more!

  5. I like meat but I think it's a good idea to have meatless days if you can. It's such a healthy alternative! I don't usually go for frozen dinners because of the high sodium count, but they are OK occasionally if you are in a pinch for time!

    1. I want to buy fresh produce but I like connivence, sometimes I can be lazy about cooking.
