Pistachios

Pistachios are one of the healthiest nuts available due to their high content of protein, calcium, iron, oleic acids, and antioxidants such as vitamins A & E. Pistachios contain less fat than most other nuts and are inclined to be alkaline-forming which is essential in healing illnesses and disease. 

Pistachios are incredibly nourishing for the blood as well as the immune system, cardiovascular system, muscular system, and nervous system. They are also an excellent weight loss aid. Just one handful a day can help to curb your appetite and keep you energized throughout the day. Pistachios are known to help lower lipids and lipoproteins in the blood which ultimately helps to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (good) cholesterol. 

Raw pistachios are highly beneficial for constipation, dry skin, and for toning the liver and kidneys. Pistachios can help to prevent coronary artery disease, strokes, infections, memory loss, type 2 diabetes, insomnia, neurological disorders, skin cancer, and macular degeneration. For ultimate health benefits, choose raw, unsalted nuts that are natural in color (meaning no red or green dye). 

Pistachio nut oil is also excellent for revitalizing and nourishing the skin and is excellent for massage therapy and cosmetic use as well. Consider finding more ways to incorporate this healthy nut into your regular diet. Pistachios work great with salads, trail mix, and even fresh pesto! 

Try this pistachio pesto recipe that has multiple heart healthy and healing ingredients: 

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
  • 2 -3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or pistachio oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Pinch of sea salt 

Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and pulse until smooth. 

Pistachio Pesto is a delicious dip, spread, or topping for raw veggies, baked potatoes, steamed asparagus, rice pasta or crackers.
