Superfood Tip: Pecans
September 5, 2014
Pecans are our last tree nut to be covered in the series. One serving is 19 pecan halves and provides 200 calories, 20 grams of fat (mostly monounsaturated fat), 3 grams fiber and 3 grams protein. Pecans contain 19 vitamins and minerals in small amounts but are loaded with antioxidants. They are also loaded with the cholesterol-lowering plant sterols that we covered a few weeks ago.
