Popping the nuts out of their shells is all part of the fun of eating pistachios, which are irresistible for snacking. Their buttery taste doesn't hurt, either, especially when the nuts are roasted and salted to bring out their sweeter side.
Although California is where most domestic pistachios are grown today, the exquisite nuts date back centuries to the Middle East, where the word for the open shell also means, appropriately enough, "laughing." Tickle your flavor fancy they will with their one-of-a-kind taste and natural stress-reducing qualities.
What's more, a single serving of pistachios has more nuts than any other-49 nuts on average by weight-and has just 160 calories and 13 grams of fat, most of which is the cholesterol-lowering kind, plus a bunch of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They're particularly high in potassium, which means nibbling on pistachios could also help strengthen your muscles and keep your blood pressure in check.
