Here are a handful of new products — or new varieties of old favorites — that we think you'll especially enjoy.

Read on -- one of our vendor partners, Amy’s Kitchen, is giving away a free “case” their new Light & Lean Quinoa & Black Bean Bowl to one of our lucky readers. UPDATE: Thanks to everyone that entered! Congratulations to our randomly chosen winner, Aimee M.!

I had never had veggie chips before I tried the 365 brand Veggie Chips a few weeks ago, and now I can't get enough! My head is going to turn into a veggie chip.

I recently found the new flavored pro bars at whole foods. I absolutely LOVE the new coconut flavored ones. Also, it's very ironic that you're posting this give away, because just a few days ago I was looking at Amy's website and saw the new light and lean meal and thinking how amazing that looked, and wondering why I hadn't seen it anywhere yet.

kelli says …

Saffron Road is my new favorite frozen meal product line. Their entrees are hearty, but healthy. Unlike other less quality products, I was not left hungry after eating their meal.

I love the KeVita product - especially the lemon cayenne flavours. They are great for guts and taste wonderfully unsweet. One of the very few flavourful, and proactively healthy low calorie drinks on the market in Ontario.

I just love the "Harvest Bowl" from Amy's Kitchen. My mother was eating alot of marie calender's frozen meals, she's 80 years old. She wanted healthier meals and Amy's are the best!
