April is National Pecan Month

April is National Pecan Month, and naturally, we’re going to suggest you celebrate this month dedicated to that tasty nut with pecan-flavored coffee. We just happen to have a delicious pecan-flavored K-cup by Green Mountain.

If you prefer to eat your pecans instead of drink them, we have a few recommendations.

For those who love pecan pie, Priesters has an incredible pecan pie you can get delivered right to your door. Their inventory includes traditional pecan pies, mini pecan pies, and even chocolate pecan pies.

According to the National Pecan Shellers Association (NPSA), snacking on pecans is a far healthier, more nutritious alternative than typical snacks. Eating just one ounce of pecans, roughly 15-20 pecan halves, has the following nutritious benefits:

  • More antioxidants than any other nut variety
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease and lower cholesterol levels
  • Contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals
  • Natural, high-quality source of protein and naturally sodium free

Try replacing one of your daily snacks with some raw pecans for this month, and see if you can feel a difference!
