Too Much of a Good Thing

Pistachio nuts taste great and they are good for you, in moderation. About 6000 years ago southwest Asia started the introduction of pistachios to the general population.  The part of the nut that you eat is the little green nut found inside of the cracked shell. The shells actually partically split open as part of the growing cycle on the tree.  It makes getting the treasure inside a little easier for us!

Pistachios do have fiber, micronutrients, and healthy fats. The key to making this a healthy snack is to control the portion size and avoid the salted version. Keep the serving to about one ounce, (50 kernals) and enjoy.
