Some benefits of Pistachios
The Old Testament mentions pistachios, & they've been brought to the U.S. since the 1880s. Once a status symbol & bourgeois delicacy, pistachios are now widely farmed & available to anybody who desires a nutritious snack.
Pistachios can fit into any meal or snack, depending on how much you love them & how creative you are.
Crush pistachios & sprinkle them on Greek yoghurt or fish, or roast them with spices & citrus. Besides being tasty, pistachios are healthful & full of advantages, says Amy Gorin, M.S., RDN, a plant-based registered.
Pistachios are high-protein snack nuts, explains Gorin. Pistachios are a complete protein source, with 6 grammes every 1/4-cup serving.
A high-fiber diet helps cut cholesterol, blood pressure, & cardiovascular disease risk. Pistachios are high in fibre, making them a great snack. Gorin says 1/4-cup pistachios have 3 grammes of fibre.
Many people are dismayed by nuts' fat content, including pistachios, & disregard their health benefits. The polyunsaturated fats in pistachios promote satiety & cut cholesterol, says Gorin.
Pistachios are rich in nutrients, especially B6. A vitamin B6-rich diet prevents anaemia & heart disease. It helps your body digest amino acids, which is crucial for muscle growth.
