But, but... in all these good-for-you, calorie-dense foods, it's the stuff that makes them so calorie-dense that makes them soooo good! :) Healthy fats, yay!

Not so much, I'm annoyed peanut butter does! :) I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Pistachios are one of the nuts with the fewest calories actually. I think they take longer to eat if in the shell too. Try pairing it with an apple to feel more satisfied.

I need to find some unsalted unshelled pistachios.

Haha! I hear that! Time to practice moderation.

Pistachios aren't too bad, so far as nuts go - 1 ounce (47 nuts) is only about 150 calories. If you get them unshelled, 47 nuts in a little bowl actually looks like a fairly nice serving, and it takes quite a while to get 47 nuts out of their shell... so for me at least, it's a lot more of an "experience" (and thus worthy of the calories) on the odd occassion where I decide to indulge.
It's also nice to look at nuts as "enhancements" for other foods (i.e. a few sprinkled on a salad or into your yogurt parfait)... rather than looking at them as a stand-alone snack food.
