Pistachios are a Sidekick to Walnuts. We love them because they are so nutrient dense. Just a small handful of pistachios have a ton of natural antioxidants. They’re the nut with the highest amounts of beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin and vitamin B6. They’re also loaded with potassium, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, phytosterols and protein.
We also like pistachios because we can’t eat them quickly. By taking the time to get the wonderful meat out of the shell we are more mindful of how many we are eating. And studies show that it takes about 20 minutes for our bodies to signal when we’re full. The time it takes to eat pistachios allows our sense of satiety to develop and we feel full before we’ve had too many.
Tierra Farm’s pistachios come from California and are certified organic. They’re perfectly dry roasted for a fantastic flavor. Just shell and pop in your mouth for a great snack. They’re also great on salads.
Keep your pistachios in a sealed container in cool dry place. You can keep them in the freezer too.
