The Awesomness of Pistachios

Photo credit Marissa Winslow

Pistachios are my favorite nut in the whole wide world!! If pistachios are ever an option for me to buy over other nuts, I will buy them. They are the more expensive of the nut family, but I see them as a healthy investment. This nut is small but mighty in health benefits:

Here's a few reasons why:

Heart Health-High in vitamins A and E, protect blood vessels, and reduce the chances of developing hear disease

Helps prevent type 2 diabetes

Increases the production of serotonin and melatonin in your central nervous system thanks to vitamin B6

Linked in helping decrease the chances of developing macular degeneration

Promotes the development of beautiful skin thanks to all the Vitamin E!
