Pistachio Butter & Dried Fruit on Corn Thins slices

Pistachio Butter and Dried Fruit


This recipe of the month will satisfy any sweet tooth. Dried fruit can be a great way to add a serving of fruit to your day. 1.5 tablespoons of dried fruit or 4 apricot halves are a serving of fruit. Dried fruit like dried apricots, sultanas, prunes, and dates are also a good source of non-haem iron. Iron is needed for oxygen to be transported around your body and helps to keep your immune system working at its best.

Pistachios are a good source of protein to help promote your lean muscle mass. Protein also helps you to feel fuller for longer between meals. Pistachios are also heart healthy as a good source of unsaturated fat. The types of fat found in pistachios promote healthy blood cholesterol levels. This means these types of fat help to increase your ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and reduce your ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

The perfect crunch to base these two ingredients are Corn Thins™ slices, providing your body with gut loving fiber as well as vitamins and minerals as a whole grain source. Whole grains contain all the parts of the grain which include the bran or the outer layer, endosperm or the middle starchy part and germ which is the nutrient packed core of the grain. All three parts of a whole grain give your body many nutrition benefits including vitamins E and B, phytochemicals, protein, and healthy fats. Whole grains and whole grain containing foods like Corn Thins™ slices are also linked to supporting your health by assisting you to maintain a healthy weight and decrease your risk of chronic disease, some cancers and heart disease. This recipe of the month is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth while removing any regret as you know each delicious bite is full of health benefits.
