Fuel Of The Week: Pistachios

Did you know that one ounce of pistachios contains almost as much potassium as a banana? Photo: www.shutterstock.com

Move over bananas, there’s a new source of potassium in the kitchen.

If Stephen Colbert hasn’t already turned you on to pistachios, enter Pistachio Chewy Bites. These new mini-bars are a simple combo of the nuts and dried cranberries, with a little agave nectar and salt. If you like pistachios and cranberries, be careful, because these are addictive. These are a great snack before, during or after a run, and will please the gluten-free and vegan crowd among us. Fun fact: Pistachios are high in potassium, with an ounce clocking in at about 300 mg—a banana has about 400 mg.

Price: $7 for six-pack, $13 for 16-pack
