Who doesn’t love pistachios?! They are both tasty and healthy! Like most nuts, they offer beneficial nutrients along with two substances (namely lutein and zeaxanthin) that are essential for good eye health. According to the American Optometric Association, these two substances reduce the chances of developing eye conditions such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts.
Costco’s Kirkland brand is a great choice for registered dietitian Lauren Manaker who also adds that “pistachios are a great source of protein, healthy fats, and nutrients such as manganese and vitamin B6.” However, what’s the fuss about Costco’s Kirkland brand? Well… they come pre-shelled.
