Superfood: Pecans

We’re over the moon that our Summer Lemon Tossed Salad with Spiced Pecans is back this April! Along with overtones of tart & tangy lemons we love the crunchy pecans this salad features. We also love these fun facts about pecans from the National Pecan Sheller’s Association (they’re great conversation starters over dinner):

  • It would take over 10 billion pecans to reach the moon
  • To fill an Olympic sized swimming pool you would need 144 million pecans
  • There are over 1,000 different varieties of pecans
  • The pecan is Texas’ state tree

Pecans are also a source of health benefits! Why do we deem pecans a superfood? Consider the following:

  • They provide over 19 vitamins and minerals
  • Pecans are naturally sodium-free
  • Pecans help to lower cholesterol
  • They can help to prevent coronary heart disease
  • One ounce of pecans provides 10% of the recommended daily fiber intake
