Our favorite nut has been making major headlines recently! Catch up on the latest pistachio coverage now.

Men’s Health magazine – Pistachios were highlighted in this recent article titled, “Baseball Food – More than Hot Dogs and Beer,” which comes as music to the ears of fit-minded fans! Ballpark stadiums tend to be filled with tempting, less-than-healthy choices, full of saturated fat and added sugars, but pistachios make it easy to choose a fun, delicious snack that won’t derail your healthy eating plans. When compared to peanuts, the articles suggests to “make a mess with pistachios instead” while watching your favorite teams, because you get more bang for your buck nutritionally and there are more nuts per serving. “For the same sized serving, pistachios have less calories, fat and saturated fat, are a good source of protein and fiber, and give you more nuts per serving – about 49 – compared to just 28 peanuts. That’s a big difference that will help fill you up, not out. A win win.” We couldn’t agree more!
