Registered Dietitian Maya Feller teamed up with Amazon to share how families can create their favorite holiday recipes with healthy, affordable foods from Amazon this season.
Amazon makes groceries more accessible and helps families make healthy choices by accepting SNAP benefits on Amazon.com and Amazon Fresh to shop shelf-stable pantry items, fresh foods, and ingredients. Some of her favorite holiday memories and traditions take place around the table.
As a registered dietitian, Maya recommends that patients add nutrient-dense options to their pattern of eating. All of these dishes are representative of foods in their whole and minimally processed forms and are bursting with flavor.
At her holiday parties, the perfect appetizer is a customizable board. Such as a mix of flavors and textures including spiced nuts and seeds, veggies, and wonderful dips.
For the main, she enjoys roasting chicken in a Dutch oven with seasonal veggies like onion, garlic, and squash. Then choose a starch that is culturally relevant to round out your dish.
A delicious end to a wonderful meal is a simple baked apple and pear topped with honeyed yogurt and pistachio for added crunch. Plain full fat yogurt is a great nutrient-rich option to add to desserts.
All of these items and more, including pasta, rice, and beans, are SNAP EBT eligible on Amazon. And the best part is that qualifying orders can be delivered right to your door for free! Plus, customers who enroll their benefits on Amazon will also receive free access to Amazon Fresh and 50 percent off Prime membership.
