Planters Sea Salt & Black Pepper Pistachios

Shell on-pistachios sprinkled with salt and pepper are all the rage these days, but we like that this combo from Planters uses sea salt, helping to knock off about 30 percent sodium when compared to other brands. Also nice: Planters sells the snacks in large pouches and convenient individual portions perfect for the lunch box, back pack, or desk drawer. The nutrition numbers: 160 calories per serving (about 46 nuts), 6 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 190 milligrams sodium.
