FOR MOMS AND MOMS-TO-BE
Before I became a Mom for the first time, my husband and I wanted to go on one last childless vacation (because even if you don’t bring the kid[s] with you, they are always on your mind!). After checking out all of our options and concluding that we needed to relax as much as possible (especially since I was 8 months pregnant), there was no better place to go than Hawaii. From the white sandy beaches to the fresh, salt filled air, beautiful sunsets, and deliciously fresh produce and seafood, we knew that paradise was only a 5 hour flight away.
Now, nearly a year and a half since we took that trip, I still remember it like it was yesterday (and dream of going back tomorrow!). There really is a lot to be said about some good old-fashioned R and R.
Well since it’s not all that easy to just jump on a plane and leave my responsibilities (aka, Kaston) behind, all I have for now are my memories and a bag of Royal Hawaiian Orchards Macadamia Nuts to help me take a trip back to paradise – even if it’s only for a moment.
THE PRODUCT: Royal Hawaiian Orchards takes Hawaii’s prized macadamia nut and transforms it into a full line of delicious and succulent snacks. From Seasoned Macadamias to Fruit & Nut Crunchies, all 12 flavors taste just as good as they are for you.
Whether you prefer the savory flavors of Sea Salt or Hawaiian BBQ, or you like the sweeter side of Mango Pineapple or Kona Coffee Banana, there is no doubt that digging into a bag of macadamias from Royal Hawaiian Orchards will transport you to the islands and have you begging for more!
NUTRITION-WISE: Macadamia nuts are a healthy addition to a well-balanced diet. Naturally sweet, these nuts are a good source of protein and contain an abundance of other healthy components such as fiber, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals.
Moreover, macadamia nuts are cholesterol-free, and have a fatty-acid profile that is similar to that of olive oil – helping to lower the lousy LDL cholesterol while raising the favorable HDL in your bloodstream.
Furthermore, Royal Hawaiian Orchards only uses the freshest and most wholesome ingredients it can find, assuring that their products do not contain sulfites, artificial colors, flavors, or other harmful additives. All of their ingredients are also certified free of GMOs, gluten, cholesterol, soy, wheat, and sulfites, with many of them being locally sourced as well.
FINAL THOUGHTS: We can all use a vacation every now and again, and as a busy mom, that statement could not be more true. However, just packing up and taking off isn’t always feasible so we have to find other creative ways to help get us through.
For me, I’ve found Royal Hawaiian Orchards and am now able to take a quick escape to paradise whenever I feel the urge. With so many flavors to choose from, including both sweet and savory, I have come to love them all and have no doubt that once you try them, you will too!
