Pistachios

Solo traveler yet again, and even after all these years of hopping planes I still can work up a healthy case of anxiety. Did you know pistachios have a high healthy fat content, lots of fiber and tons of antioxidants to keep blood vessels open and relaxed during stressful moments? 2 pistachios are equal to .03mg of melatonin which is the physiological dosage (within the range of concentrations that occur naturally in your body) using that equation 33 pistachios are equal to a 5mg dose of melatonin which is the pharmacological dose. We eat far fewer pistachios when we have to shell them ourselves…does it slow us down so our body has time to say hey I’m full or is it the heap of shells in front of us? Regardless a few pistachios now and then when traveling help me stay calm, cool and collected, and a few before bedtime help with falling asleep. ❤️ur❤️🌱
