Healthy Foods: Pistachios

Why They're Healthy:

Pistachios have an impressive nutritional resume. laudable amounts of protein, cholesterol-busting monounsaturated fat, and plenty of fiber and energy-boosting B vitamins. But they're so tasty that it's easy to inhale several handfuls, which can quickly send your snack time into calorie overload.
After all, a mere ounce delivers about 160 calories. That's why in-shell pistachios are a near-perfect snack option.

Quick Tip:

Pistachios added to common carbohydrate-rich meals, such as rice and pasta, can significantly reduce the post-meal blood sugar spike.
