Other sources of calcium?
As the most abundant mineral in the body, calcium is not only important for building and maintaining bone health. Heartbeat, muscle contractions and blood clotting capabilities are all dependant on having calcium readily available. Check out this handy list of non-dairy calcium souces and enjoy!

Fergie's Favorite Indulgence

FergieFergie said this on the Rachael Ray show 3/25: "And her favorite indulgence? "Amy's Enchiladas, with cheddar cheese." She especially loves the low-sodium version. "So I'm thinking OK, I can have it, it's got the beans and the corn inside. Well, not when you add four pieces of your own sharp cheddar cheese slices on the top, and put it in the microwave! So yeah, that's definitely a cheat for me and something that I did last week a couple times."

A note from AmyDear friends,

My whole life, I've heard stories about the early days of Amy's when I was a toddler… :) of having so few employees that my dad was stirring the sauce for the pot pie himself at 4am while my mom glued brochures together and tried to keep baby Amy from eating them. It always sounded so romantic and exciting. Now I get to experience that myself! With a team of only about 30 people in our new UK factory (compared to 2000 in the states!) we all do a little bit of everything, and its been amazing to experience a startup environment within a company that I already love so much.

Not only that, but when I moved here eight months ago, nobody knew anything about Amy's here in the UK. As a gluten intolerant vegetarian, I had no idea how lucky I was back home to be able to heat up our products when I couldn't cook. I've spent every other weekend of the last eight months going to shows and sampling our products to skeptical consumers. It is so amazing to watch people try Amy's for the first time and see the look of surprise and excitement when they find out it is frozen or canned and still so healthy and good!

We've been making some great progress with the stores, and people can now buy a few of our products in almost every UK supermarket. Our next adventure will be France and Germany in the Fall, and then on to the rest of Europe. A friend of mine joked, “Are you trying to take over the world with organic vegetarian food?” And I said, "Absolutely!"
