Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Avocado and Pistachios

Remember that one time I married Apples and Avocados? Then they had a child, Salsa?

Or how about that one time when I sauteed some Brussels Sprouts with Apples?! Eeeep! That was in.cred.ible!

I think I have a *thing* for apples…

Okay, obviously, today, there are no apples in sight, but we do have brussels sprouts and avocado. Aaaaand PISTACHIOS.

I ♥ Pistachios. A.K.A. the skinny nut. 

Looks like I also have a *thing* for healthy food. I loooove it! But my *thing* for cakes is a wee-bit bigger…

I Love That This Brussels Sprouts Salad Is Loaded With Pistachios

You know how that one time your mother told you to eat your greens? I think I finally made my mother happy – I ate ALL my greens. Avocados, pistachios, brussels sprouts – all green! all in my belly!

That’s why we are just going to let this happen… let this salad be.

If we’re going to eat a salad, though, I insist that we pretty it up with some pistachios. They are healthy – boom! – they are delicious – bang! boom! – and nutritious! – boom! bang! boom!

Celebrity trainer, Valerie Waters, states that pistachios are also a good source of fiber, providing 12% of the daily value per 30 gram serving. And? 30 pistachios is only about 100 calories! Score!

I have a secret to eating my pistachios. I trick myself into buying the shelled pistachios so to make it harder for me to eat the entire bag – I’m too lazy to crack them all open. Hey! That’s the definition to ‘in moderation’.

Shine Stars information on pistachios

Did you know? More nuts = more benefits?! According to a Harvard University study, benefits of snacking on nuts go up as the number of servings goes up, too. That means – eat A LOT more nuts! If you love research, you can read more about this study, and all other benefits of Pistachios over at the Pistachio Health Institute website.

Also, the Pistachio Health Institute has teamed up with Valerie Waters to spread the word about the healthy nut. Their “Shine Like The Stars” promotion includes a Sweepstakes hosted on the Pistachio Health Institute Facebook Page. 3 winners will receive “Shine like the Stars Sweepstakes” prize packs! Head over and sign up! To enter, participants must “Like” the Pistachio Health Institute Facebook page and enter their name, address and contact information.

This salad, though?? Oh my goodness! It’s like mother-healthy came knocking on my door and I welcomed her in. Then we made this salad together. Then we ate and ate and ate… and we were both satisfied and happy. And healthy.

ENJOY!
