    Pistachios are rich in potassium (helps regulate the body's fluid balance), phosphorus (helps build bones and teeth) and magnesium (important element in the conversion of the body's energy), and are also a good source of vitamin B6 (aids protein metabolism and absorption) and thiamine (enhances energy and promotes normal appetite).

    And the shells are great for fire tinder due to the oils in the shells.


    [h=2]A handful of pistachio nuts a day can help destroy bad cholesterol, ward off heart disease and prevent cancer, say scientists. [/h]Well worth packing a bag.

    My missus 'bagged' her first Munro last year, and pistachios were one of the things she was advised to take with her, to eat regularly. Bio-degradable wrappers too ;)
