Kitchen Love for Heart-Smart Wonderful Pistachios Sponsored by Wonderful Pistachios #getcrackin

I love bacon and brussels sprouts and then when you add heart-healthy pistachios from Wonderful Pistachios it truly tops the dish!!!

 

This delicious side dish has it all healthy fats, protein, and greens. What more could you ask for?

Do you like Brussel sprouts? I used to think I didn’t like them, they just had this stigma about them that you weren’t supposed to like them. And to be honest I’m pretty sure I never even tried them when I was younger.

Growing up I thought I didn’t like vegetables besides a very small selection. Like Corn and potatoes. Haha great choices oh I would eat some iceberg lettuce but again not a lot of nutrients.

I have since grown to love vegetables or probably more like I actually tried them And discovered they are amazing!

Wonderful Pistachios are not only delicious, but the mindfulness of this fit company is truly amazing!

Pistachio heart healthy nut

The Fit, Mindful, Skinny, Colorful, Happy NutTM

  • Pistachios are known as The Fit NutTM because they are one of the highest protein and fiber snack nuts that are part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, such as pistachios, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • In-Shell Pistachios are known as The Mindful NutTM because they may help you “fool yourself full” because the leftover shells may provide a visual cue for portions, potentially helping to curb intake. We call this the Pistachio Principle. One preliminary behavioral study found that participants who consumed in-shell pistachios ate 41-percent fewer calories compared to those who consumed pistachios without the shell. Those who chose the “no shells” pistachios consumed an average of 211 calories, while those who chose the in-shell variety consumed an average of 125 calories, suggesting that empty shells may provide a visual cue for portions, potentially helping curb intake.
  • Pistachios are known as The Skinny NutTM because they are one of the lowest calorie and lowest fat snack nuts.
  • Pistachios are known as The Colorful NutTM that help you snack colorfully: pistachios’ green and red-purple hues come from antioxidants.
  • Pistachios are The Happy NutTM because you don’t snackrifice – snack happy: pistachios offer great taste AND good health (and pistachios smile back at you).
