Look what I found in the back of the cabinet last night:
An unopened bag of pistachios! Oh happy day. I opened them and ate a few before even taking a picture. I hate all nuts except pistachios. I really have tried to like other types of nuts, though. I’ve tried peanuts, pecans, almonds, cashews, walnuts…. I just don’t like them. But I LOVE pistachios.
Don’t you love it when you find a favorite snack hiding in the back of the cabinet? Of course I had already brushed my teeth when I discovered them last night. That meant I had to brush them again after eating some pistachios, but it was totally worth it.
Did you know pistachios are full of protein? They also can help lower your cholesterol and are full of seven essential nutrients. They also make a great low calorie snack and will help you feel full because they are high in fiber. Now you know why the brand name is “Wonderful.” They’re so heart healthy, they even got to do a photo shoot with the Cheerio’s bowl.
Tomorrow night I’m running a night race! It’s called the Downtown Sundown 5K, and it’s part of a local Summer Solstice Fest. The race starts at 8:30 PM and all runners are required to wear bright clothing. They also hand out glow sticks for everyone to run with. I ran this race back in 2008 (I think) and had a blast. Yes, I’m scared of the dark, but not as much when I’m with a group of people. More motivation to not get left alone on the trail!
Who else loves pistachios?
Has anyone else ever run a night race? What do you think of them compared to the usual morning race?
Anyone else watching the Track & Field Championships this weekend??
