National Pecan Day!!
Munch on pecans on April 14th because it is National Pecan Day! Pecans are a tasty nut often used in desserts. They are native to North America and Mexico. Pecans are not only delicious, but are also very healthy for you! These nuts are full of minerals to keep you strong and healthy, fiber that aids in digestion, and anti-oxidants that help prevent heart disease and cancer. Pecans are perhaps most popular baked in a pie, but are also great in cookies, roasted with or without sugar, or used as a topping on salad or granola. However you like them, celebrate today with your favorite pecan recipe!
