To maintain healthy habits during the busy holiday season, you want to be sure your fridge and pantry are stocked with better-for-you foods and beverages so making nutritious choices is a no-brainer.
Keep POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate juice in the fridge because it’s an easy way to add antioxidants to any meal, snack, or holiday themed option. The holidays can be stressful, but POM has antioxidants that fight free radicals – four times the antioxidants of green tea, on average! Each 16 ounce bottle contains the juice of 2 whole pomegranates and nothing else, no added sugar, fillers or preservatives. A balanced smoothie using POM can be a quick and easy breakfast or snack to fuel your day, or you can add a glass to a protein rich breakfast. POM and Pomegranate Arils are both great in recipes, too, like this Pomegranate panzanella salad.
A great pantry staple is Wonderful Pistachios – there are so many varieties to keep on hand so you can choose whatever flavor sounds most satisfying. Wonderful pistachios offer 6 grams of complete plant protein per serving as well as 3 grams of fiber and better-for-you unsaturated fats. This is a trio of nutrients that may help you feel fuller longer, so you’re better equipped to tackle everything on your work, life, and holiday to-do lists.
Add honey roasted pistachios to a grain bowl at lunch and keep single-serve bags in the car for an on-the-go snack. You can also use the lightly salted variety to make a quick holiday bark to enjoy something a little different alongside all of the holiday cookies!
