Health Benefits of Pecans
Pecans contain packed full of antioxidants, plant sterols, fiber, and "good" unsaturated fats that are good for heart health. Pecans are also a delicious source of plant protein. When added to a smoothie, the protein and fiber in pecans can help keep you feeling full longer.
