Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies

By: Lisa Guy

Pistachios are a great source of prebiotic fibres that feed our beneficial gut bacteria so they grow and thrive. Dark chocolate is considered a mood-boosting food. Cacao contains phenylethylamine, the same chemical that’s created in the brain when you’re in love. It has a natural anti-depressant effect and can help lift your mood.
