Pistachios are my favorite nut!  These little green guys are packed with nutrition.  So much so that they’re just bursting out of their shells!  Check out what makes 1 ounce of pistachios (49 nuts) such a healthy choice:

  • only 160 calories
  • contains both monounsaturated & polyunsaturated heart-healthy fats
  • 3 grams of dietary fiber
  • 6 grams of protein
  • 342 micrograms of the antioxidants lutein & zeaxanthin (great for eye health!)
  • as well as the nutrients: Vitamin B6, copper, magnesium, potassium, phophorus, & thiamin

So get crackin’ & enjoy some pistachios today!
