A healthy nut


How can something so yummy be good for you? 
Guess what they are.....
Pistachios....are the good nut
healthy source of fiber
good for your heart
if in the shell...you eat them slower
equaling a healthy snack and possible weight loss!
It's true....I googled it

Wonder why we seem to only consume them during the holidays!!

I like Almonds. I can't eat peanuts, allergic to them. I have never tried Pistachios. I will try them this holiday season.

I love pistachios! But I still need to limit how many I have, they are so addicting!

Growing up we always had a bowl of nuts at Christmas time. My favorite are the Brazil nuts. So meaty!

Pistachios were always my son't favorite. I have been converted so they are high on my must have food list.

That's funny - i just bought some yesterday! I usually go for almonds but had also read that pistachios were good for you. I remember my mother in law always having bowls of them at her house during the holidays.

I love them. I remember as a kid they used to be died red. Williams-Sonoma has a great recipe for pistachio ice-cream on line. We made it all summer long. :)

I love pistachios! In HK, the literal translation of their term for pistachio is "happy fruit." =)

I love pistachios and also pistachio ice cream!

Today I heard on one of the talk newsie TV shows that if women eat a nice breakfast and NO mid-morning snack it will help lose weight. I will try that. xoxo
