  • Amy's Frozen Dinners

    Does anyone know if the Amy's brand Light and Lean dinners have any downsides? I'v been curious because they are easy to make when you don't have a lot of time and as far as I can tell are nutritious. Does anyone know the scoop?

    Are there any that are grain free? I doubt few if any, so I would say while they may be organic, probably not primal.

      I agree with Jena. Organic =/= healthy.

      If I grow and process sugar using all certified organic methods, in the end, it is still sugar.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

            Polenta is made from corn.
            Corn is a grain.
            Polenta =/= grain free.

                I didn't think about it that way. I suppose corn is a grain. I am new to this website so feel free to correct me

                  Not only is corn a grain, but more than 85% of the corn grown in the U.S. is genetically modified. As a food, corn in this country isn't fit for consumption by anyone except a Monsanto or FDA executive.

                    Where do you suggest I buy corn considering that?

                      Most here would suggest you don't.

                        I suggest you skip the corn altogether.

                          I wouldn't. It's a grain. But if you just can't live w/out it, I'd try a trusted organic source. Or Mexico. They grow over 27 different kinds of corn, and are trying (it won't work) to keep GMO corn out of the country. Problem with that is that our government (read you and me if you pay taxes) subsidizes the production of corn here to the extent that it's actually sometimes cheaper for Mexicans to buy our corn from grocery stores.

                          I think about it this way. Corn is basically sugar and fiber. Take a stick and sprinkle some sugar on it and it's about the same.

                            Amy's is a local company where I live. Good folks, but they cater to the vegetarian crowd. They do gluten free meals, but not grain free. I don't think I have ever seen anything by them that's grain free.
