10 Healthy benefits of Pecans: Why they are so good for you!

December 30, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Who doesn't have new years resolutions just waiting for the strike of midnight January, 1st, 2017? I have a few.... I've battled weight issues all my life. I love my sweets. Drink coca cola and have a sit down career where I sit for hours editing photo sessions. I don't like to work out and when I do it's brief walks at the farm. So this year my new years resolution(this is just one of them)is to start moving more and try to shed off at least 20lbs. Small goals are more realistic for me. 

 

Which brings me to my point. I started doing some research on healthy eating habits and continuously found something or other being made with pecans. I then found the nut chart that explains how pecans are the highest in antioxidants. I was floored! Whether you say pee-can or peh-kahn, they are probably one of the most sought after nuts and can be tossed in just about anything. Its all making sense now. The man that planted the pecan trees. The man who got so much joy from planting, irrigating, harvesting, that poured his sweat and tears into the farm lived to be 83 years old. The man is Juan Ledezma, my husbands grandfather. And here we are keeping his legacy alive by having families enjoy our small pecan farms beauty. Not knowing that this fruit/nut could potentially be the cure for many diseases.. So I put together a few photos found on google to show you what type of foods and gooddies can be made using pecans all while lowering sugar intakes, heart healthy, improving digestions, weight loss help, reducing the risks of certain cancers,  anti-inflammatory benefits, boots immunity. I could go on and on.... but won't. You'll have to read this info for yourself: http://food.ndtv.com/food-drinks/why-pecan-nuts-are-good-for-you-and-how-to-eat-them-1262183

Wishing you and yours a very happy and prosperous new year! Stay safe!
