Pistachi-YES (aka another giveaway!!)

Are you sad that pistachios have been recalled? I was, too, until I found out that the pistachios from Everybody’s Nuts are safe! Even better, Everybody’s Nuts has offered to send a prize pack of three bags of their yummy nuts to one lucky reader. Check the bottom of the post for more details!


Dinner last night was more delicious Mediterranean pasta mix on top of about three cups spinach and arugula (looooooove arugula!). And love the parm:


I chopped my pineapple and ate the core plus what I could salvage from the scraps for dessert. (The dark blob is not a turd. It is a fingerful of cashew-almond butter!)


And, now for the giveaway! Like I said, Everybody’s Nuts is going to send three bags of their safe and salmonella-free nuts, each in a different flavor, to ONE lucky reader! To enter, all you have to do is:

1. Leave me a comment on this post telling me why nut recalls make you sad


2. Link back to this contest from your blog OR email me at talesofexpansion@gmail.com to let me know that you are blogless but still want to enter!

The contest will run until 6pm EST on Monday 4/13 to give you ample time to recover from any holiday-ing this weekend. Go nuts!! (I had to do it. Could not help myself.)

    Nut recalls make me sad because I don’t always check and then pay for it later. Two months ago I got sicker than i’ve ever been only to find out it was due to nuts in a bar we had at the office. Three of us were stuck at home for the next day! Boo!!
    I’ll be linking back tonight!

    Nut recalls make me sad because the majority of my diet consists of nut-based foods. Im obsessed with nut butters so its such a bummer when they are recalled!

    nut recalls make me sad because i can’t throw out food and so i’ll eat nut products anyway and then every time i feel a little off i’ll think “omg it must be the nuts!” for the rest of the day!

    “not a turd” – ha πŸ™‚

    Nut recalls make me sad because it makes me scared to eat my beloved pistachios in my TJs mix….but I eat them anyways. Such a rebel, i am!

    i’ll post to you at lunch, hopefully!

    Nut recalls make me sad because they are such a constant part of my diet. They keep me full, give me energy, and taste so gosh darn yummy… I don’t know if I could ever really go that long without ’em.

    How’s that for a response πŸ˜‰

    Great blog!

  10. Erin says:

    Nut recalls are so sad. I even wrote a paper on the evils of it. I eat them everyday and throwing out my PB larabars was one of the saddest things I’ve ever done! It took me about a week to go through with it.

  12. Allison says:

    Love the mediterran pasta!

    Nut recalls make me sad, because I usually end up wasting a lot of money in food! (poor poor PB recall) 😦 I HATE wasting food, I know you are with me on that!


  13. Keegan says:

    Nut recalls make me sad since it means someone isn’t doing their job right along the way and I’m stuck tossing all that yummy goodness in the trash…what a waste!

    P.S. that pineapple looks amazingly tasty…


  14. Anne K. says:

    Nut recalls make me sad because for one, I like nuts and nut butters! They also make me sad because it makes me worry about the cleanliness and safety of our food industry.


  15. Tra says:

    nut recalls make me sad because it makes us scared of food. and as a recovering anorexic, i’m scared of nuts. this gives me a reason to be like, i will never eat nuts not just because of fat and calories, but because “they’re unsafe”. that’s why i hate recalls. i don’t have a blog- unless you count the one on food buzz!


  16. Roxanne says:

    It makes me sad because I love nuts… Pistachios and almonds, though a bit expensive for me to buy regularly, are full of wonderful deliciousness, and I would be even more sad to get sick from them than from something I’d normally get sick from. Also, nut butter sandwiches are a staple of my poor-college-kid diet.


  17. Laura E says:

    It makes me mad b/c I can’t eat them and It’s scary that we don’t know what else could be recalled next! I’m emailing you!!


  18. Kate says:

    So, I make this amazing pistachio pesto last week. (The nuts from Trader Joe’s weren’t recalled – phew!) Last week, after I ate it for lunch, I read about the recall. I felt a bit queesy, and I also felt sad because I didn’t want to the food to go to waste!!! 😦


  19. Dori says:

    The nut recall makes me sad because every time I walk into Tasti Delite and look at the cases of pistachios ready to be scooped into a bag and weighed, I have to remember that I cannot do it!


  20. Ellen says:

    all these food recalls make me sad because they’re just a reminder of how processed our food is these days. it’s really too bad and hopefully will change in the future..


  21. ttfn300 says:

    what is with all these recalls??? i love me some nuts, and i don’t discriminate πŸ˜‰ i would like to think they’re safe all of the time but now i’m thinking it’s too easy to contaminate…


  22. Steph says:

    Nut recalls are disappointing because I rely on nuts to get healthy fats, and I shouldn’t have to worry about my food being contaminated!


  23. jen says:

    it makes me sad because i eat nuts everyday as a snack at work! and it also cuts down on larabar consumption – never a good thing!


  24. Megan says:

    Nut recalls make me sad because SO many of the things I eat everyday have nuts in them! [ie, NUT BUTTER!!! and Peanut Butter Cookie Larabars.. <– I was so happy to see these back on the shelf! I just added your giveaway to my blog! Hope you’re having a good weekend!


  25. Erika says:

    nut recalls make me sad becuz i love nutsssss sooo much…in oatmeal, cereal, muffins, cakes, out of the bag!, hello nutttt buttters!!!! nuts are the best!!


  26. Danielle says:

    Pistachios are my very favorite nut! I was so upset when they got recalled! But I’m very careful because a few years ago I got Ecoli and was sick for 2 weeks, I don’t want any food related illnesses ever again!
