Pecans are rich in antioxidants, long-touted as good for the heart and cholesterol regulation. They’re also a source of vitamin E, thiamin, zinc, manganese and copper – nutrients that help regulate blood sugar and promote healthier skin and bones(2). Yep, they’re healthful – but they’re just plain tasty to eat!
Think about gracing a spinach salad with Pecans, rolling chicken breasts in Chopped Pecans for an innovative entrée or using them in this month’s Carrot Cupcakes recipe! Or add them to sautéed carrots for a perfect Spring veggie side. Breakfast? Of course! Sweet or savory, indulgent or healthful, the possibilities are endless. Get out your party horns and salute the noble Pecan!
