Wellness advocate Berto Calkins knows the struggle of grocery shopping during the holidays. Growing up, his family often relied on government assistance programs for food and the holidays always proved to be hard on the budget. That is why this partnership is extremely important to Berto.
Because they are now accepting snap benefits, Amazon.com and Amazon Fresh are creating a much more accessible system for customers to be able to buy food with SNAP-EBT. Some of the products available for purchase are shelf-stable pantry items, ingredients, and fresh foods to keep your family eating healthy.
Now hear about what Berto loves to get from Amazon for the holiday season!
Berto is a vegan and is always looking for new meatless dishes for his loved ones to try. One of his favorites is lentil soup which includes onions, garlic, potatoes, and vegetable broth. And you can’t go wrong with roasted vegetables! Thats why another key menu item for Berto is sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and squash served with a salad and his homemade tahini dressing.
Now who could forget about sweets? Berto would never — he likes to make his pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust and 100% pumpkin. Does it compare to his grandmothers though? Not yet, Berto says, but he’s getting there.
Berto also advises that you stock up on meal-prep staples like broth, flour, brown rice, beans, and pasta. The best part about these essential ingredients is the fact that you can mix and match any of them to create delicious meals for you and your family.
With Amazon, you can count on delicious and fresh ingredients and food being delivered right to your door with no membership required. They are determined to provide nutritious and delicious meals for you and your loved ones.
