Real talk: sometimes you just need a little something something in the afternoon. Amiright? We all have those moments where a couple of apple slices just ain’t going to cut it. For those times I’ve got some important key words: Mindfulness. Portion control. This little snack of pistachios and dark chocolate satisfies both.
Not only are pistachios a wonder nut, but they’re what I like to call a ‘slow down food’ since you need to pop open each and every one of those shells. It takes a little extra moment than just shoving a handful of peanuts into your mouth, and that moment creates an opportunity for mindfulness. A quarter cup is the perfect snack-sized portion. Dark chocolate is the perfect partner to pistachios – as dark as you can stand it. I’ve chosen two squares of 85% chocolate here, and I tell ya, it leaves me satisfied.
