In The Kitchen: Toby Amidor with proof that there is such a thing as a ‘better for you’ BBQ!

If you’re looking for some healthy and delicious inspiration for your Memorial Day spread, look no further. Registered Dietitian, Toby Amidor, with RDTV is joining us with proof that there is such a thing as a ‘better for you’ BBQ!

Whether you’re hitting the road for the holiday weekend or entertaining friends, Wonderful Pistachios are a must-have.  Nearly 90% of the fats found in pistachios are the better-for-you mono and polyunsaturated type. Plus, they provide a good source of plant protein and fiber, for a trio that can help keep you fuller longer

Skip the chips– because Pistachios have three times the plant protein, fiber and pieces per serving compared to potato chips. In-shell pistachios may help you “fool yourself full” because the leftover shells may provide a visual cue for portion control. An easy and elegant way to entertain this Memorial Day is to build a cheese board where Wonderful Pistachios are the star! Amidor included some gourmet cheese, fresh fruit and veggies.

When you taste this delicious Cucumber and Avocado Salad with a Creamy Feta and Herb dressing. The secret ingredient?  a2 Milk! Ordinary cows’ milk naturally contains a mix of a1 and a2 protein. But published research suggests that milk without the a1 protein* like this a2 milk, may help some people avoid stomach discomfort. This is 100% cow’s milk, but it comes from cows that naturally produce only the a2 protein and no A1. So, bring on the creamy, dreamy dressing– everyone can enjoy it!
