I wanted to expose another super-food that some people don't realize. In fact, some
people mistakenly think of this food as "junk food".

It's pistachio nuts.

We should all know by now that although nuts are composed of mostly fat, they are all healthy fat and loaded with tons of vitamins, trace nutrients, and ntioxidants. And pistachios are definitely loaded with nutrition.

Yes, these should be part of your guilt-free "approved" list of snack foods. Not only are they great for you, but they're delicious too!

I recently saw a study done on pistachios that divided the subjects into a control group, a group eating 1.5 oz of pistachios daily, and a 3rd group eating 3 oz of pistachios daily. It was a controlled university study done by Penn State

The results were impressive... Both of the pistachio groups reduced significantly LDL bad cholesterol, decreased non-high density lipoproteins (another heart disease risk factor), and improved all LDL, HDL, and total cholesterol ratios respective to each other.

The reason pistachios do a body good... They are loaded with a unique balance of healthy fatty acids and antioxidants.

So don't fear pistachios anymore if you thought they were fattening... Eat up and enjoy!

Want a BONUS superfood?

It's Nasi lemak ayam goreng. Okay, maybe not but I wish it was . . . darn :-(

There you have it - something that many dismiss as a bad food but it helps you to lose weight!

Please ignore my nasi lemak ayam goreng recommendation by the way :-)
