What could be better than starting the week with the opportunity to win Wonderful Pistachios on Appetite for Health? Yeah, we couldn’t think of anything either. Read on for entry details…
You’ll need to get crackin’ if you want to win Wonderful Pistachios! Ten AFH readers will win the basket of nutty goodness pictured at left (a $30 value).
Pistachios are a great snack (and also very handy to have around when friends come over to watch the game, etc)—they are delicious and highly nutritious to boot. Pistachios are one of the lowest fat, lowest calorie and highest fiber nuts. And as if you needed more proof that pistachios are a perfect snack food, you get 49 nuts in a one-ounce serving—more than any other nut! Now that’s a serving! Want to know more about the health and nutrition bennies you’ll get from pistachios? Check out the Wonderful Pistachios website.
AFH frequently recommends choosing nuts as a snack because their protein and fiber content helps keep you full. With pistachios (and other in-shell nuts) the fact that you have to shell them as you go along means that you’ll be more mindful about what you’re eating, which is always a good thing for portion control and just general enjoyment. Making your snacks healthy (as opposed to junky) is smart. It’s even smarter to do so when you’re trying to cut a few calories from your daily diet. Why? Well, the fewer calories you consume, the more important it is to make sure that everything you do eat pulls its own nutritional weight (so to speak). Very simply, there is less room in the diet for nutrient-poor snacks if you’re trying to keep a lid on calorie intake.
