AMY’S KITCHEN CELEBRATES 30TH YEAR

Organic, vegetarian and vegan food brand Amy’s Kitchen is celebrating its 30th year of business this year. In 1987, Rachel and Andy Berliner had their first daughter, Amy, and decided to start making their food from organic products. They wanted to share their recipes at local markets, so Amy’s Kitchen was born. The Berliners’ search for organic ingredients for their recipes began before the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) had national organic certifications — Amy’s Kitchen helped form those guidelines when the time came around. Popular vegan choices from the Amy’s Kitchen range include their Manhattan Veggie Burger, Bean and Rice Burrito and Chinese Noodles and Veggies. The burger is made with vegetables, quinoa and walnuts, and is free from soy and gluten as well as dairy, eggs and obviously meat. Rachel Berliner had this to say about the company’s use of organic products: “Organic farming has a big impact. It nourishes the soil rather than stripping it of its nutrients so that the soil stays healthy for future generations. It’s better for the people working in the fields. And we think organic food tastes better.”

About Vegan Life

No matter how old I get, September makes me want to visit a stationery shop to buy a new notebook, an Oxford mathematics tin and sharpen all of my pencils. I always loved school and September marks the beginning of another year of learning; there is nothing better, in my opinion, than a shiny pencil case full of new pens, highlighters and a bright, pristine rubber. It’s been years since I was at school but I still love learning and learn something new every day – especially as a vegan, where your eyes are opened to hard truths regularly. So, in this month’s issue, we are having a back to school special where we look into chick hatching programmes, animal-friendly entertainment for children and some incredible packed lunch ideas that will have the other parents begging you for the recipes. I am also excited to share a collection of interviews with vegan athletes who are committed to showing the world that you don’t need to consume animal products to be at the top of your game. To accompany our interviews, our talented in-house chef has created some delicious recipes to power you before or after exercising without compromising on taste. My particular favourite is the deliciously simple key lime pie power balls which are, frankly, awesome. After such incredible feedback following our adoption special last month, we are tackling another controversial topic and are exploring invasive species – non-native plants and animals which now call the UK their home – and the prejudice that some invasives are encountering for merely following their natural instincts. We also take an in depth look at the process and impacts of the leather industry. This article would be perfect to share with friends and family who may still think that leather is a by-product of the meat industry. Finally, we met with the beautiful Lucy Watson to discuss the launch of her book and what veganism means to her. She was honest, open and incredibly chatty - the perfect interviewee.
