Healthy snacking and good food choices can be difficult any time of the year, but can be especially tough during the big game. A great snack of choice is pistachios. Pistachios are loaded with antioxidants and fiber, which will help you feel full, prevent you from over-eating during the big game, and give you an immune system boost as well.
You can eat them right out of the bag or spice them up with your favorite seasoning, like thyme and garlic or smoked chile tequila, or add them to your favorite game-day recipes.
Going to someone else’s house to watch the big game? Avoid the pitfalls of straying from a healthy eating game plan. Have a backup plan and take along some portable healthy snacks. They’re easy to pack and travel well.
Pistachios also pack a nutritious punch with as much protein as an egg, and as much fiber as a cup of broccoli, more potassium than a large banana, and more phosphorus than a cup of milk. Pistachios have unsaturated fat, low cholesterol and low calories. In fact, a one-ounce serving of 49 nuts has only 160 calories. Pistachios—fun and healthy.
