There’s always a new superfood on the scene. Right now, the big name in nutrition is pistachios. These little tree nuts boast high levels of protein, vitamin B6, copper, manganese, antioxidants, and fiber. Forty-nine nuts make up a serving, which is more than any other nut, meaning more fun snacking for us! Pistachios are also versatile: they can be used in salads, desserts, and as a replacement for breading on your favorite baked chicken. Finding smart ways to integrate these green nuts into your diet this summer could lead to weight loss and a healthier heart.
