Pistachio Pairings: Tequila Shots!

I received free pistachio samples from the Pistachio Health Institute mentioned in this post. By posting this pairing I am entering a contest sponsored by Pistachio Health Institute and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.


Ready for an indulgent pistachio pairing? How about with a shot of tequila! The salted nuts make an excellent substitute for the usual dash of salt. Munch on a few delicious pistachios, throw back a shot of your favorite tequila and finish with a wedge of lime. Let's get this party started :)

Your recipe for exercise recovery?

Water + Pistachios + Banana!

This is a great snack to have in your gym bag ready to go after a tough workout at the gym or a long bike ride! The combo of nuts and fruit is a winning combo - you have a good amount of protein and heart healthy fats from the pistachios pairs with carbohydrates to replenish glycogen in your tired muscles. You replenish your electrolytes without needing to grab a sports drink - the sodium and magnesium from the salted nuts and the potassium from the banana has you covered. Don't forget the water!
