More Than Just a Holiday Nut

More Than Just a Holiday Nut

There’s quite a bit of commotion in our warehouse right now because our pecans are dusting off their dancing shoes and pulling out their party hats. It’s National Pecan Month and we intend to celebrate all month long. The Original Supernut™ in the United States, pecans have been categorized primarily as a holiday delectable for far too long. This nutrient-dense nut deserves recognition year-round, so we hope the month of April will help spotlight the versatility of pecans and secure their place in your diet on a more regular basis. 

Here are just a few reasons you should consider incorporating more pecans into your diet:

  1. 30g of pecans (1 serving) contains 25% more oleic acid than one tablespoon of olive oil. 
  2. Pecans contain the highest level of antioxidants of any tree nut and are the only nut ranked in the top 20 antioxidant-rich food list. 
  3. Raw pecans contain no sodium, cholesterol, or gluten. 
  4. A one-ounce serving of pecans contains less carbohydrates and more dietary fiber than other nuts.

Of course, nuts are best incorporated in moderation when reviewing your daily food intake. Consult with a medical professional if you have questions about your dietary needs. 
 
We hope you will join the festivities this month by claiming some pecans as your own! Throughout the month of April, we are offering 20% off our Mammoth pecan halves and our honey-glazed pecans. Our halves are perfect for whipping up your favorite recipe and honey-glazed is ideal as a hostess gift or used to top yogurt, salads, and anything else your heart desires.

These honey cinnamon roasted pecans offer the perfect balance of sweet and nutty. We love this roasted pecan recipe because all you need to do is combine a few ingredients, coat the pecans, and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes (or less). The spice of the cinnamon compliments the sweetness of the honey and all flavors make the nutty undertones ever so satisfying.
