Native to Central Asia and the Middle East, pistachios usually grow in desert areas. The trees that bear the seed can survive up to 300 years. Pistachios are high in antioxidants and low in calories. Even though they are low in calories, they’re a good source of protein. They aid in weight loss and keep the gut clean. They’re known to reduce the risk of heart disease in many ways.
No oil is added during the cooking process, only salt to give you the right amount of flavor. Since pistachios contain vitamins and minerals, they make for a nutritious, heart-healthy snack. Instead of chips or candy, grab a handful of pistachios—they'll leave you feeling energized and satisfied at the same time.
