Amy's Kitchen Opens All Veggie Drive-Thru with Gluten-free Twist

Celiac.com 07/10/2015 - Ready for a revolution in healthy fast food? Amy's Kitchen thinks so.

Photo: Amy's KitchenLooking to be more than just a frozen food company, food-maker Amy's Kitchen is staking a bet on healthy fast food by opening a healthy all vegetarian drive-thru restaurant in Rohnert Park, California.

Amy's Drive-Thru will offer vegetarian burgers, burritos, pizzas, salads, macaroni and cheese, as well as milkshakes and vegan non-dairy shakes," according to the official company press release. Each menu item can be ordered vegan or gluten-free and every ingredient is non-GMO. Nearly all products are organic, and most ingredients are locally sourced. All meals are made from scratch, in under three minutes.

"The heart of the Drive Thru menu is The Amy, a veggie burger the company developed over the course of over a thousand recipe taste tests," Amy's said in a press release.

The restaurant opens in July, and will serve lunch and dinner, with plans to eventually serve breakfast. Diners will have a choice of meals that are gluten-free or dairy-free, and the pizza comes in either a rice or wheat crust. More than 95 percent of the products are organic, with many locally sourced.

No processed food is healthy, have you ever tried Amy's Kitchen stuff? It's not very nice.

For times that require eating on the go, like traveling, this would be a great option. I hope this does well and expands to more areas.

Disappointed it is all veggie, I want meat. And I agree that the taste of other Amy's products is disappointing. But I will try it, not many GF options when in Rohnert Park and needing lunch.

While I also am not a fan of Amy's Kitchen frozen goods, I am pleased to see that SOMEONE is trying to provide healthier choices in fast food. In Southern Florida the fast food available is abysmal, so it would be wonderful to have another choice. Good for them for their giving it a go.

I like Amy's food, especially the Mexican and Indian entrees and pizza. Some of the soups are good, too. Maybe I'm biased because of the name, but I liked Amy's even before I had to eat gluten free. I hope their restaurant chain does well!

@cyclinglady thanks for checking in Restricted diet didn't do much. Still had some VA last time they checked. Heath still otherwise fine, so RCD remains unlikely. My sxs kick in lockstep with life stress, so that kind of points to some general IBS stuff on top of celiac disease. Very doubtful I'm getting any gluten in, but fingers crossed my system is just a little hyper-vigilant, as I ponder on this thread.

I have always noticed that the table wine in Europe is pretty damn good! I am a wine lover and so is my husband but he does like his Green's beer.

The reason they set the limit at 20ppms is that through scientific study, they have proven that the vast majority of people with Celiac Disease do not have an autoimmune reaction to amounts below that......it is a safe limit for most. Also, just because that limit is set at 20ppms, does not mean that gluten-free products contain that amount of gluten. Testing for lower levels becomes more expensive with each increment down closer to 0-5ppms, which translates into higher priced products. Unless you eat a lot of processed gluten-free food, which can have a cumulative affect for some, most people do well with the 20ppm limit.

I'm in the Houston area so I'm assuming there are plenty of specialists around, though finding one that accepts my insurance might be hard. This might sound dumb, but do I search for a celiac specialist?? I'm so new to this and want to feel confident in what is/isn't wrong with my daughter. I'm with you on trusting the specialist to know the current research.

Hi VB Thats sounds like a good plan. Would it help to know that a frustrating experience in seeking diagnosis isn't unusual With your IGG result I'm sure a part of you is still wondering if they are right to exclude celiac. I know just how you feel as I too had a negative biopsy, but by then a gluten challenge had already established how severely it affected me. So I was convinced I would be found to be celiac and in a funny way disappointed not to get the 'official' stamp of approval. Testing isnt perfect, you've already learned of the incomplete celiac tests offered by some organisations and the biopsy itself can only see so much. If you react positively to the gluten free diet it may mean you're celiac but not yet showing damage in a place they've checked, or it may be that you're non celiac gluten sensitive, which is a label that for a different but perhaps related condition which has only recently been recognised and for which research is still very much underway. We may not be able to say which but the good news is all of your symptoms: were also mine and they all resolved with the gluten free diet. So don't despair, you may still have found your answer, it just may be a bit wordier than celiac! Keep a journal when you're on the diet, it may help you track down your own answers. Best of luck!
