Pretty in Pistachio

I am a huge fan of pistachio. I remember watching my grandfather shell those suckers at an alarming speed while never once taking his eyes off the college football team on TV. It was an art form, I gotta tell ya. I don't have the dexterity nor the caluses on my fingers. But still, I love pistachios.

Now, it turns out that pistachios may join the pack of nuts when it comes to heart health benefits. Hoorah!

A recent study found that a handful of nuts, including pistachios can help lower the bad LDL cholesterol and raises level of the good HDL cholesterol. Just one more reason to eat those little bags of nuts on the airplane.
