Hello Friends! This is our very first blog post. We wanted to share something worthwhile, so we thought we would start with the benefits of one of our favorite nuts - the Pecan.
First off, we love pecans. We love them as snacks, as toppings for salads, or inside any of our baked goods. They are delicious but also nutritious! A handful of pecans is a satisfying snack loaded with essential nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.
Here are the top benefits of Pecans:
Pecans provide more than 19 Vitamins and Minerals - including Vitamin A, B, E, Folic Acid, Calcium. Phosphorous, Thiamin, and Zinc.
Pecans are high in antioxidants, which can help with Anemia and lead to a glowing complexion.
An ounce of pecans provides 10% of your daily recommended fiber intake.
Pecans promote heart health. They reduce blood pressure and can help reduce heart related diseases.
Pecans are a good source of plant protein. Good for vegans and for staying full longer!
Pecans contain Thiamin, which is important in energy metabolism. They help improve blood sugar levels, which helps maintain energy levels preventing sugar crashes (goodbye 2pm slump!). Thiamin also boosts brain function.
Pecans also help with weight loss.
Pecans reduce inflammation
Pecans help lower cholesterol.
Pecans can reduce the symptoms of PMS. (YASSS Girlfriends).
Basically hand over the pecans! If you’re looking for the perfect pecan snack, visit our Shop to order our Maple Glazed Pecans. We use only organic pecans and lightly glaze them with 100% Maple Syrup from Canada and top with a sprinkle of sea salt. Take them everywhere as a snack or use them as a topping for salads, ice creams, or desserts.
