With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we are taking a closer look at the health benefits of pecans so you don't have to feel quite so guilty about reaching for that extra slice of pecan pie.
Pecans may not get as much attention as the other superfood nuts like walnuts and almonds, but they should. Pecans are actually the most anti-oxidant rich of the tree nuts, and they are high in healthy unsaturated fat. What does that mean? Well, a handful of pecans a day can help lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol, which can help prevent strokes and coronary artery disease.
Still not sold? Pecans also provide you with essential vitamins and minerals that play a role in maintaining healthy skin and hair. So instead of pulling your hair out this holiday season, grab a few handful of pecans!
Craving pecans yet? Well, good, because you can grab the Pecans Goji Pistachios Thunderbird bar for 20% off all month long with the code PGP20 at checkout. Go ahead and get those pecan taste buds warmed up for that slice of Thanksgiving pie!
