Food Reviews and Amy's Coupon Giveaway!

If I had to chose a fruit (other than a melon) to bowl with, I would choose a pomello.

3 hours, 13 minutes, and 42 seconds after beginning to peel the pomello, I found the fruit. The pomello is deceivingly not as large as it looks. After being peeled, it is roughly the size of a grapefruit…and 3-4x the cost of a grapefruit.

While delicious, the pomello was a bit laborious and spendy for my practical self. But, to each the own! I enjoyed trying it regardless 😉

I have had some yummy eats lately that I’ve been saving up to share!

Amy’s Organic burritos! YUM! These burritos are delicious, quick, and highly nutritious — high in fiber, low in fat, and a good source of protein! Oh, and less than 300 calories each!

Thank you, Amy’s for sending some burritos to samples and coupons! 🙂

Lifeway Organic Kefir!

Most yogurts on the market contain 1…maybe 2…possibly 3 live and active cultures to promote healthy gut bacteria. Kefir? 10 life and active cultures! 1 cup of low-fat Kefir contains 2 grams of fat, 125 mg. sodium, 3 grams of fiber, and 11 grams of protein! Kefir is thick and comes in delicious flavors like Pomegranate/Acai, Strawberry, Cherry, Blueberry, and Pomegranate! Yummm! Love Kefir!

Thank you, Kefir for the awesome samples!!! 🙂

Love Amy’s products? GOOD!

    My absolute favorite is Amy’s chunky tomato bisque soup. It is delicious! My favorite tomato soup, hands down.

    I love Amy’s soups. They have some great gluten-free options! I also had a gluten-free tortilla bowl that was really impressive. I’m not a big fan of frozen meals, but if I am going to have one, I will choose Amy’s without question.

    I love Amy’s products! My fav is the rice crust pizza. I so hope I win the coupons. Thanks!

    I would love to try the stuffed pasta shells bowl. What a great giveaway. Thanks.

    Hi Nicole! Love the blog 🙂 I look forward to reading and following along.

    I absolutely love Amy’s products! I think the cheddar cheese burrito is my favorite, although I’m a big fan of the tomato bisque soup too.

    I love their black bean vegetable soup.

  7. February 10, 2010 / 10:58 am

    my fav Amy’s products are the soups! pretty much all of them 🙂

  8. February 10, 2010 / 12:00 pm

    Im torn for which Amy’s product is my favorite. The broccoli pot pie has always been the winner, but now I think its tied with the chunky tomato bisque.
    Ive never been disappointed with anything they make though.

  9. February 10, 2010 / 12:18 pm

    I’ve never tried Amy’s burritos and have always wanted too. Especially after seeing that pic of yours!

    That fruit looks too complicated for me 🙂

  10. February 10, 2010 / 12:28 pm

    I love pomellos…yes, a bit pricy, but they just make me excited for some reason. I love Amy’s frozen Mexican tofu scramble!!

  11. February 10, 2010 / 12:34 pm

    What is the difference between a pomello and a grapefruit? I love grapefruit!

    • Nicole
      February 11, 2010 / 6:24 am

      I’m not exactly sure, Suzi…but they sure taste the same. The pomello is a bit dryer, but other than that I didn’t see any real different in taste!

  12. February 10, 2010 / 12:51 pm

    Haha! That is a big fruit. That picture is so funny and cute 🙂

    I’ve only ever had Amy’s burritos, but I love them! They are so so good. What a great giveaway.

    I think I’ve tackled one of those over skinned – over sized pomellos before. I was so disappointed because when I finally found the fruit, it was so dry! At that point, I decided never to challenge my love of grapefruits again.

    I’ve never tried Kefir. Other than the nutrition/cultures that you pointed out, what makes it different from yogurt?

    • Nicole
      February 11, 2010 / 6:25 am

      There’s fiber in Kefir (inulin) and the added cultures.

  14. February 10, 2010 / 1:14 pm

    I love Amy’s Black Bean Soup. It is very tasty and extremely filling.

    Great product finds 🙂

  15. February 10, 2010 / 1:24 pm

    My favorite Amy’s product is the no cheese roasted vegetable pizza (I was eating it when I got engaged:)

  16. February 10, 2010 / 1:34 pm

    I LOVE trying new fruits. The pomello looks so fun!

    I’ve only had an Amy’s meal once (an Indian dish), but I would LOVE to try the Margherita Pizza. Everytime I see a picture of Amy’s pizza, I drool a little bit.

  17. February 10, 2010 / 1:37 pm

    I love the Amy’s frozen lemon poppyseed cakes!! They are really freaking amazing. I don’t even heat it up before eating…simply remove from freezer, slice, and enjoy. hahaha

  18. February 10, 2010 / 1:39 pm

    I love Amy’s Burritos Too! I am always so impressed by how good their products taste.

    I LOVE Amy’s veggie burrito. They are so convenient as a college student, yet super nutritious! 🙂

  20. February 10, 2010 / 1:49 pm

    Mmmm…I love their brown rice and tofu veggie bowls! I also love their lasagna! 🙂

  21. February 10, 2010 / 1:56 pm

    thats a whole lotta kefir…if you cant finish it, just let me know 🙂

    favorite amys product?? LOVE the split pea soup!!

  22. February 10, 2010 / 1:56 pm

    I do love Amy’s, especially their soups! But…. no need to enter me in this contest since I was able to get some coupons at my local grocery store a few weeks ago :-). I do really want to try Lifeway Organic Kefir some time though – I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the flavors!

  23. February 10, 2010 / 2:24 pm

    That pomello looks delish!!

    My fav AMYS product is her lentil vegetable soup.. soo good! 🙂

  24. eaternotarunner
    February 10, 2010 / 2:25 pm

    I’d love to try any of their pizza’s, I hear that they are great!

  25. February 10, 2010 / 2:28 pm

    I just saw a pomello in the grocery store the other day and thought to myself, what is that?!?!?! Now I know!

    I love Amy’s products so much…if I had to pick a favorite, I would say the teriyaki wrap. Or maybe the split pea soup! 🙂

  26. February 10, 2010 / 2:55 pm

    Haven’t tried Amy’s products – that burrito sounds great!

  27. February 10, 2010 / 3:03 pm

    I’ve never tried any Amy’s products before, but I’ve heard great things about the soups and have been waiting to run out of what I already have to buy some. I plan on starting with the Organic Butternut Squash (light in sodium) or the Chunky Tomato Bisque (light in sodium). YUM!

  28. February 10, 2010 / 3:10 pm

    You’re very welcome for the kefir — we hope you enjoy it!

  29. February 10, 2010 / 3:19 pm

    I want a pomello!! I’ve never had one before!!

    I LOVE Amy’s!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 I am in love with their spinach pizza!! Andrew like their rice crust pizza too!! 🙂

  32. February 10, 2010 / 3:55 pm

    February 10, 2010 / 4:32 pm

    I’ve never had Amy’s before but have been wanting to for the longest time! My first picks would be one of the breakfast burritos and then one of the spinach pizzas 🙂

  34. February 10, 2010 / 5:31 pm

    I have never seen a fruit like that before. It looks very cool.

  35. February 10, 2010 / 5:55 pm

    Did it taste like a grapefruit?

    I really like Amy’s veggie burgers. I wish they were less expensive. Coupons would help!!!

    • Nicole
      February 11, 2010 / 6:25 am

      Yep, just like a (pricey) grapefruit 🙂

  36. February 10, 2010 / 6:26 pm

    I like Amy’s Chunky Tomato Bisque soup. I used to eat a frozen spinach burrito type thing that she made. I wonder if she still makes those. It was GOOD.

  37. February 10, 2010 / 6:41 pm

    I’ve tried the Amy’s burritos and thought those were pretty tasty. : )

  38. February 10, 2010 / 7:14 pm

    What’s the price comparison between Kefir and Yogurt…$/serving?
    If my number comes up redo it as I’m not in the US 🙂

    • Nicole
      February 11, 2010 / 6:26 am

      I’m going to look into this more and post an answer on my Q&A next week…if that’s okay with you?

      Great question!

    Hi Nicole, Love your blog, will be following. My favorite Amy’s products are the burritos and lowfat Cream of Tomato soup. It’s so good. Love Amy’s products. Thanks for all your tips. 🙂

    February 10, 2010 / 9:18 pm

    I think the black bean whole meal sounds great

  44. February 10, 2010 / 9:44 pm

    Love the pomello pic-cute! 😀

    I love Amy’s pizzas- so good!!! 🙂

  45. February 10, 2010 / 10:12 pm

    what a great meal! LOVE the burritos-i wana try the cheeseless pizza!!

  46. February 10, 2010 / 10:48 pm

    I’d love to try the burritos. My coworker just got hooked on Amy’s Indian meals. In the non-burrito land, I’d like to try some of her low-sodium options, and I also hear that as far as canned soups go, hers are worth trying… I’m always wary of canned soup though… so I think I’d stick with the burritos for now.

    I have the best picture of my mom’s face the first time she (finally) opened a pomelo. It was priceless – the shock at the flesh to peel ratio.

  47. Melissa
    February 11, 2010 / 4:50 am

    I LOVE Amy’s foods period! I definitely like the tofu and veggie bowl and the enchiladas. Those are probably my favorite.

  48. Jamie C.
    February 11, 2010 / 6:52 am

    I love Amy’s burritos!

  49. February 11, 2010 / 7:02 am

    Wait, you seriously WON all those kefirs?!?! wow! What a giveaway!

    Ok, I love Amy’s burritos, LOVE them, but can’t eat them anymore. SO I guess my favorite Amy’s product would be their gluten free pizza 🙂 I haven’t had it yet, but I’m sure it’s fantastic like everything else they make!

    Note to self: Don’t buy pomellos. I have when foods take a long time to peel!

    February 11, 2010 / 4:24 pm

    My favorite Amy’s product is the low-sodium spicy chili, but a close second are the apple toaster pastries.

  53. February 11, 2010 / 4:41 pm

    I love Amy’s burritos. I bought several new (to me) ones the other day, and hubby ended up taking the tofu one to work. It’s funny because I had been looking forward to trying it, and I didn’t think he’d care for it that much. But he absolutely loved it.

  54. February 11, 2010 / 5:53 pm

    Darn I just missed this! I’ve been so busy 🙁

  55. February 11, 2010 / 7:58 pm

    I love amys! If the products were so expensive I would buy them all the time! I love her non-dairy burritos 🙂

  56. February 12, 2010 / 6:10 am

    I’ve never tried one of those fruits before! Interesting 🙂

    Thank-you! I love your burritos, a perfect, quick and healthy lunch on the go. I, also, take great comfort in knowing that what I am putting into my body has not been genetically modified :)))
