PistachiosVia walmart.com

Wonderful Pistachios

It seems like snack foods tend to be mostly carbohydrates and can leave you feeling hungry again in no time. That’s why I love snacking on nuts such as pistachios: You get filling protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Nearly 90 percent of the fats in pistachios are the healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated types. Pistachios are also one of the lowest-calorie snacking nuts, so you get to have more per serving compared with other nuts. For more filling meals, try using Wonderful Pistachios instead of croutons on your salad, or chopped pistachios instead of bread crumbs on your baked chicken or fish.
