Pistachios

Nuts are renown for their health benefits, and pistachios are no exception! Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, pistachios were shown in one double-blind study to help decrease bad cholestorol (LDL) by 14% and increase good cholesterol (HDL) by 26%. Pistachios are also high in vitamins A and E, which help alleviate and balance inflamed pathways.

Selection Process

Raw pistachios contain the most antioxidants, so look for raw, bright green pistachios, indicating better flavor. Pistachios usually come pre-packaged, but are fully mature when one end of their shell is split open. Deshell before using.
