pro mani

i eat a lot of the pro mani salado, and tonight i looked up the website of the company. turns out that it is part of pozuelo snacks, and it claims these health benefits for peanuts:

Beneficios de comer maní
Contienen grasas mono saturadas, vitamina e, acido fólico, magnesio, proteínas, fibra y son ricos en antioxidantes.
Juegan un rol muy importante en bajar los niveles de colesterol y en dilatar las venas y arterias previniendo así la ateroesclerosis y otras enfermedades.
Son una gran fuente de beneficios que pueden reducir dramáticamente el riesgo de contraer enfermedades coronarias

i think my favorite is the mani con pasas.

costa rica’s minister of tourism likes puerto viejo

in an interview with the tico times, second term Tourism Minister Allan Flores reveals his partiality to the caribe sur:

Where does the tourism minister vacation?

My mother’s family comes from Limón (on the Caribbean coast), so that’s why I usually enjoy places such as Gandoca, Puerto Viejo and Punta Uva. To me those are the best places and I love them.

(it is very possible that the link to the interview will be placed behind a paywall by the time you try to click on it. if you are interested in puerto viejo, that quote right there is what you need to know!)
