Want to skip the fruit but need to get some fiber in your diet? Pistachios provide three grams of fiber per serving, more than many types of whole fruit. That’s a healthy alternative worth smiling about. In Iran the pistachio is known as “the smiling nut”. Though the pistachio is native to the Middle East, California currently produces about 98% of the domestic crop.
The pistachio’s high nutritional value and long storage life makes it great travel snack. Pair pistachios with low-fat cheese, apple slices, sprinkled over plain yogurt or mix with dried fruit and dark chocolate pieces for a healthy snack option. Snack options as healthy and flavorful as these make it simple to understand why, inChina, the pistachio is known as “the happy nut”.
