thanks Chantell! Here is a link to a chart I made and posted on my blog that shows the comparison
http://gardencuizine.com/2012/07/pistachio-nuts-for-protein-potassium.html

All nuts are good for you in moderation, but Pistachios are highest in phytosterols too, which have been shown to lower cholesterol.

Nice to hear from you. Have a good rest of the summer! ^_^

Happy and Healthy Gardening!
