I am so glad Amazon carries the Peanut Shop of Williamsburg’s Roasted and Salted Pecans! It is difficult to find roasted pecans in my grocery store. However, Amazon, as with so many other hard to find products, has what I am looking for. Taste is subjective, of course, but for me pecans with their buttery, nutty taste, are the most delectable of all nuts. In addition, I like to know that eating something as tasty as pecans gives me a rich source of important B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates.
Pecans for breakfast? Yes! I occasionally include pecan nuts to my diet for breakfast to get healthy nutrients such as minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins that are essential for wellness. I add a Quest protein bar and am then totally full and satisfied for hours.
But even given these breakfast benefits, I would not eat them if they did not taste absolutely delectable.
Pecans in the diet help to decrease LDL or “bad cholesterol” and increases HDL or “good cholesterol” levels in the blood. I eat my own version of a Mediterranean diet, which is rich in dietary-fiber, mono-unsaturated fatty acids, and antioxidants to hopefully protect me, at least in part, from coronary artery disease and strokes. Pecans also contribute to a healthy blood lipid profile.
Kale vs. Pecans? Hmm, what will it be, kale or pecans? Like pecans, the super veggie kale is also essential in my diet as a great way to manage blood sugar, lower my risk of cancer, and help lower my blood pressure. Even though kale is another important food in my diet, let’s face it, I don’t look forward to eating a portion of kale as much as I anticipate eating a portion of pecans! As far as taste goes, luscious pecans win this contest by a mile.
There are two obvious ways kale is superior; these are calories and cost. As far as calorie content, 100 grams of kale = 49 calories whereas 100 grams of pecans = 690 calories. Nevertheless, those calories contain heart-healthy fats and many other nutritional benefits so I don't worry too much about their caloric density. As far as cost, obviously pecans are a pricy treat and are not cheap. So I and use kale much more frequently and only use pecans as an occasional treat. One way for kale to coexist with pecans is to put them both in a salad. Add some chopped Granny Smith apple and you have created a yummy nutritional powerhouse of a side dish.
Thank you Amazon for offering the Peanut Shop of Williamsburg’s Roasted and Salted Pecans. They are both delicious and healthy!
