Aloha Pistachio Skinny Snack

In-Shell Pistachios + Dried Baby Pineapple

What I’ve realized this week while conducting my highly important pistachio pairing research is that I’ve been missing out. Why haven’t I been snacking on in-shell pistachios more often? Especially this tasty duo of dried baby pineapple and pistachios. It’s all you need for a satisfying, skinny snack. That isn’t just my opinion either; my official taste testing panel gave this pistachio pairing the highest rating of all the combinations. I can always count on Lindsey JHolly D, and LB when it comes to taste testing:)

One ounce of in-shell pistachios equals approximately 49 nuts, which is more nuts per serving than any other snack nut. For a 100 calorie snack, just reduce your serving to about 30 in-shell pistachios. Wondering where you can find dried baby pineapple? Trader Joe’s is my source, but Whole Foods may be another option. Remember what I said in my last post about snacks? This snack fits the bill!

If you’re tired of this cold weather, like I am, you can join me on my imaginary vacation. Just put on your favorite Hawaiian shirt, crank up the heat, cue the sound of ocean waves, sit back with this tropical treat and get lost in this photo.
