3 John 2 – I wish that you may prosper AND BE IN HEALTH
Pistachios have become a favorite snack for many people. Did you know that pistachios are one of the most nutritious nuts you can eat? Just a small 1 ounce serving contains over 30 vitamins, minerals and other powerful nutrients to help you burn fat, improve your cholesterol and heart health, and balance out your blood sugar. They contain some of the highest protein and healthy fats of any nuts, so they are one of the best ways to snack, get tons of nutrients, keep your blood sugar low, and burn fat as well.
Pistachios rank high among nuts as having the highest amounts of antioxidant activity of any food. Antioxidants help to prevent free radical damage, which allows for healthy cell reproduction, slows aging, and prevents chronic disease, among other things. Pistachios have a unique nutrient and fatty acid profile. They are a good source of unsaturated fatty acids and numerous antioxidants.
Compared with other popular nuts, pistachios are one of the richest sources of potassium, vitamin B-6, beta-carotene, and lutein + zeaxanthin. And they contain a healthy amount of protein, fiber, and selenium (good for thyroid health) as well. These little green nibbles are crunchy, salty, delicious, satisfying, low-carb and good for you! Although these yummy nuts have loads of (healthy) fat in them, they are one of the best fat-burning snacks you can find.
