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!

It is good fat and calories.

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.

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.

that's how I feel about avocados!!! But it's good fats and calories, as apposed to a cupcake or cookies! It's the same, but what feeds your body right!

All nuts and seeds are high calorie and high fat. It's just a fact. It doesn't make me any more mad than the fact that the sky is blue and water is wet.

I think you find that is true of most nuts, which is why it's best to measure them out in portions when you bring them home, rather than just grabbing a handful.

it's packed with all the energy a plant needs to grow to the point where it can make its own food. energy is calories.
