Superfood Tip: Eating pecans provides a boost of energy

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Pecans often are a favorite treat in holiday pies, but they can also be consumed raw as a daily snack. Pecans are tree nuts and offer a variety of healthy benefits, including boosting energy. They also contain minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are important for overall wellness, according to nutrition-and-you.com.
