Pistachios

I love pistachios and when I was munching them yesterday I was thinking – they are good for me and they taste so nice! Then I couldn’t remember why they were good. I did what all good people do and came on the internet to find out and discovered this brilliant NutritionData site. The information you get on this site about food nutrition is just incredible. It lists everything you could possible want to know like how filling the foods are, their glycaemic index, the vitamin and mineral content. Someone has spent a lot of time getting all this information into a database which then provides us with precise and usable information in a clear and and attractive form. I thank them for that . I shall keep eating pistachios  – they are very, very good for me!
