4 Tasty Ways To Celebrate National Pecan Month | L’Orenta Nuts

April is known for many things: April Fool’s Day, the coming of spring, and especially Easter. However, April also happens to be National Pecan Month. A whole month to celebrate and enjoy all forms of pecans!

 Pecans are an easy, deliciously healthy, snack that people of all ages can enjoy. Modern times have taken this simple nut and turned it into a treat that comes in an infinite amount of flavors. Before we dive into some examples of these tasty nuts, let’s discuss why pecans are a great option in the first place.

What are some of the health benefits that pecans provide?

  • Pecans are a fantastic source of many vitamins our bodies need to survive! Vitamins such as: calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, and vitamin A.
  • Many of the vitamins found in pecans can help lower blood pressure.
  • The healthy fats found in this super-food can even lower the risk of heart disease!
  • The anti-inflammatory properties can even help with long term complications like arthritis.

Now to dive into the fun part: the 4 tastiest ways you can celebrate National Pecan Month!

Starting with a classic we have halved pecans! These are a fantastic base for any sort of snacking you have in mind. Some good examples would be:

  • Salads
  • A DIY trail mix
  • Chicken salad
  • Pastas
  • A cheese platter

With dozens of ways to use halved pecans, the sky’s the limit!

One of the yummiest ways to enjoy pecans is by adding cinnamon! Cinnamon compliments the nut, making it a sweet dessert you can enjoy even on the go. Not only can you eat these
