To catch up on what the big deal is and read tips for nut use, take a look at this post. If you missed it, here's the brief version: Protein, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Fibers, and Lignans. All good things and ALL found in nuts and seeds!

The Nuts And Seeds Gang:
Over the next few weeks, stop by for eight posts about nuts and seeds, how to incorporate them into your diet, which ones are best, and recipes for use...
  1. Flax Seeds
  2. Chia Seeds
  3. Pumpkin Seeds
  4. Sesame Seeds
  5. Sunflower Seeds
  6. Walnuts
  7. Pistachios
  8. Almonds


    Delicious. High protein. Healthy Fat. And even some fiber.
  • THE SUMMARY:On top of being utterly amazing tasting, Pistachios are one of the lowest fat nuts you can find! With the recent creative commercials, Pistachios are popping up in more variety in stores. Both sweet and savory, Pistachio is good in trail mix, salads, and even desserts!
    Pistachios, like most nuts, are fairly high in calories and fat. 1/4 of a cup is sufficient for a snack or sprinkling over other foods. Be careful not to sit down with a huge bag of these and eat too many. It's easy to do!
    Shuck the shell!
