Product Description

In one word pecans can be described as “delicious”. This particular kind of nut has rich, sweet, buttery flavor that is impossible not to fall in love with. Pecans have been widely used by Native Americans for centuries and are still popular today. However, nowadays they are more celebrated as a delicious snack than a remedy.

This is no way diminishes the fact that pecans are exceptionally beneficial for your health. They are very nutritious and can boost your energy levels quickly. Like other nuts, they are rather high on calories. However, pecans contain healthy fats so the chances of your waistline growing from eating them are miniscule.

Health Benefits

The most important benefits that you can get from including pecans in your diet on a regular basis are:

  • Lowering of blood cholesterol levels and heart disease prevention.
    High levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol are a major contributing factor for heart disease, stroke, and many other dangerous conditions that target your blood vessels. Pecans are literally packed with oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fat that effectively boosts your level of “good” HDL cholesterol and cleanses your arteries from dangerous pollution.
  • Removing toxins from your body and cancer prevention.
    Oxidation deals a great amount of damage to your body on a cellular level. Pecans contain large amounts of antioxidants, such as vitamin E, zeaxanthin, and ellagic acid. They protect your body from the strikes of free radicals, as well as assist in removing toxins. This improves your overall health, slows down the process of natural aging, and reduces the risks of developing some serious diseases, like cancer.
    In fact, the ellagic acid, in particular, possesses the ability to prevent certain carcinogens from binding to your DNA. Therefore, it boosts your body’s natural protection from cancers greatly.
  • Reducing the risk of many diseases.
    Pecans are full of essential nutrients. Therefore, that eating them on a regular basis will ensure that you don’t develop any dangerous deficiencies. Considering the fact that it’s elemental deficiencies that serve as a major risk factor for many diseases, eating these delicious nuts will significantly reduce your chances of developing these health problems.

Pease note that pecans are nuts and, therefore, can cause type-1 hypersensitivity response in the people allergic to them. If you have a prior history of showing allergic reactions to any kind of nuts, you should exercise caution.

Culinary Uses

Pecans can be eaten raw. They can be salted or sweetened to suit your taste without any loss of the product’s initial nutritional value. Due to their rich buttery flavor, pecans are often used in desserts, especially sundaes.

Pecan nut butter is a great spread to go with bread. When processed in this way, the nuts maintain a huge amount of their original nutritional value.

Unshelled nuts can be stored for months in a cool dry place. However, their shelled counterparts should be kept in an airtight sealed container inside a refrigerator.

    This has become a regular order in our house. We have found the pecans fresh and in good pieces. We use them in our home made granola, as well as baked goods and to eat just by the handful. A decent price for a reliable product.

    Ordered and loved these pecans! Because I thought the price was a little higher than it should be, I tried another company when I wanted to indulge again and save a little money, but was not at all satisfied. If you want to enjoy a handful of pecans (or more!) these are the ones to buy.

    I roast a nut mixture, add a little soy sauce and maple syrup, and voila! Tastes great. Also adds great flavor to shortbread-style cookies.

Raw Chai Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Raw Chai Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Ingredients

Base:

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews – http://bit.ly/1EQwVg0
  • 1 cup pitted dates – http://bit.ly/1Gn0is1
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup raw pecans – http://bit.ly/1KFJHAw
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (little scant) – http://bit.ly/1L7fLMO
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 – 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • couple pinches ground cardamom
  • few pinches ground cloves (about 1/16 tsp)
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped out
  • 1 1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest


Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup (well packed) raw coconut butter (not oil)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp pure maple syrup or raw agave nectar
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (or freshly squeezed lemon juice)
  • couple pinches cinnamon
  • Couple pinches sea salt


Instructions

Line a loaf dish or similarly sized small pan with parchment paper. Place the cashews, dates, and raisins in a food processor. Pulse until the nuts and fruits are crumbly, then add the pecans and the remaining ingredients and process again, scraping down the sides of the bowl a couple of times, until the mixture has come together and becomes sticky (don’t overprocess, as pecans can make mixture too oily if overworked). Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf dish. Press the mixture firmly into the pan (using a small piece of parchment is easiest). Prepare the frosting: Combine all the ingredients in a mini food processor, or mix very well by stirring in a bowl). Smooth the frosting over the base. Refrigerate for an hour or more until set. Cut into bars or squares and serve!

Enjoy it!
