Looking for ways to make the holidays easier this year? Find out how Wonderful Pistachios can help when it comes to snacking, entertaining and even holiday giving.
As a busy mom, I’m all about finding ways to make life easier, whether it’s through products that make tasks easier (hello auto vacuum!) or foods that take the work out of snacks and entertaining.
That’s why I’m such a big fan of Wonderful Pistachios. Not only do they make a great heart healthy* snack, they make the holidays easier…and who doesn’t need that?! From making it easy to give to those in need, to helping me put together a beautiful but simple charcuterie board, these are just a few of the ways they help to simplify the busy holiday season.
*Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, such as pistachios, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. See nutritional information for fat content.
Give Back For The Holidays
For starters, buying Wonderful Pistachios this holiday season is an easy way to give back and help out a great cause. For every bag of Wonderful Pistachios Roasted & Salted and Roasted No Salt sold at Walmart, Wonderful Pistachios will donate $.10 to Toys For Tots (up to 100k). Love the salt but trying to cut back? Pick up a bag of Wonderful Pistachios Lightly Salted instead.
This promotion runs through December 24th and benefits Toys for Tots, so pick up a bag or two of pistachios for your party and do something nice for others at the same time. It makes me feel good when I can give back and this is such a simple way to do it.
Easy Snack Food
Whether I get the munchies when I’m wrapping presents or doing my holiday shopping, Wonderful Pistachios are convenient and easy. I can just throw a small bag of these delicious nuts in my purse and I’m good to go!
Because Wonderful Pistachios are dry roasted and have no added oil, they’re a great alternative to snacks like chips or pretzels. The bonus is that they’re gluten free, kosher certified, halal certified, vegan and are non-GMO project verified.
It also doesn’t hurt that they’re so easy to find at Walmart. I just pick them up when I’m doing my regular grocery shopping or finding food, decor and gifts for the holidays.
Easy Party Food
Wonderful Pistachios also help make entertaining easy. Sometimes you have to put together something in a hurry when guests are coming. Everybody loves pistachios and you can pour these in a decorative bowl and set them out for guests to snack on. If you have a few extra minutes, they’re also a simple yet elegant way to dress up a holiday charcuterie board.
Easy Stocking Stuffers
I always have a hard time coming up with stocking stuffers, especially for my husband. He loves when I buy him a few lottery tickets but those don’t take up enough room.
Wonderful Pistachios always make good stocking stuffers and fill up the bag nicely. I don’t have to rack my brain figuring out what to buy and he gets delicious treats in his stocking. It’s a total win/win.
Easy Way To Brighten Your Day
There’s even a nut for every personality. There’s the Fit Nut for workout fans and the Skinny Nut who appreciates that 90% of the fat in these nuts is the good fat. The Mindful Nut likes to take things slow and eat mindfully while the Colorful Nut loves that the green and purple colors of the nut come from antioxidants.
I think I’m more of the Happy Nut. It just makes me happy when I can eat a unique snack that’s both good for me and tastes delicious. Sometimes I could swear they’re even smiling back at me.
I love the holidays but will always take all the help I can get. This year I’ll be stocking up on Wonderful Pistachios Roasted & Salted and Roasted No Salt for snacking, partying and giving. Now if they’d just hang the holiday lights for me!
