Pistachios are really good, except…

The other day I tweeted “Just hit my gross threshold for the day.” So, what happened? Here’s the answer.

I was eating pistachios. They’re a good, healthy, snack. In fact, Dr. Oz says they’re his top high-fiber pick. All was going well until I went to put this nut into my mouth:

Good think I looked at this nut after it came out of the shell!

That’s right, there’s some sort of young bug that has made a home in my pistachio. I am an adventurous eater, but roasted salted unknown bug larvae are not my idea of a good meal! It’s a good thing that I was opening these nuts before they went into my mouth, and a good thing that I saw this. The other side of the nut looked normal. Gross!

Here are a couple more pictures:

  • What is Choices That Matter?

    I'm a guy named John, and I do most of the writing around here. I went from a really active lifestyle to a really inactive lifestyle very quickly and my body is noticing. On top of that I'm worried about what's happening to our planet, so, I'm trying to do something about it.

    For Christmas I received the book Food Matters, which I found very interesting and inspired me to start changing. Check out my first post for the beginning of the story.
