Wellness Advocate Berto Calkins recently teamed up with Amazon this holiday season to share how they’re making grocery shopping easier than ever for all customers. Families can access healthy, affordable foods with Amazon before, during and after the holiday season.
Growing up, Berto’s family relied on government assistance programs, and the holidays proved to be a time when budgets were tight. Amazon now makes groceries more accessible and helps customers fill their holiday tables by accepting SNAP benefits on www.Amazon.com and Amazon Fresh. There, you can shop for shelf-stable pantry items, as well as fresh foods and ingredients.
As a vegan, Berto always looks for new ways to incorporate meatless dishes in his holiday menu for loved ones to try. He celebrates the holidays with his lentil soup, which features onions, garlic, potatoes, and vegetable broth.
Another of his holiday table must-haves? Roasted Vegetables! You can’t go wrong with sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and squash. He likes to serve his with a green salad and homemade Tahini dressing.
And Berto says you can’t forget about the sweets this time of year. “I like to make my pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust and 100% pure pumpkin,” said Berto. “It’s not on my grandma’s level yet, but it’s pretty good!”
With Amazon, you can also stock up on meal prep staples like broth, flour, brown rice, beans, and pasta. You can mix and match these everyday essentials to make memorable meals that will be a hit with your family. The best part – it’s all delivered right to your door with no membership required!
Amazon is making the holidays easier than ever by having everything you need to create nutritious and delicious meals for you and your family this season.
