2. Good Source of Plant Protein

Finding enough dietary protein from non-animal sources can be a challenge. Especially for those who choose to follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. With 6 grams of protein per one ounce serving, pistachios are a great way to add plant protein to your healthy meat-free diet. Protein is essential to healthy muscle rebuilding and regrowth. For those who exercise, eating plenty of protein not only helps reduce muscle soreness, but it can also help with musculature growth and strength goals. The plant protein in two servings of pistachios can make up at least 15 percent of your daily protein macronutrient goals.
