Well, it’s that time of year when you hear children talking about whether they are on the naughty or nice list. As adults, we tend to do the same thing, only with food – hmm, is it a nice (healthy) food or naughty (must avoid)? As a 25 year plus nutritionist, I say it is time to throw out this list and enjoy all foods during special occasions. Pecan pie usually is a ‘naughty’ food, but not Hill & Valley No Sugar Added Pecan Pie. Besides enjoying the delicious, buttery rich flavored pecans, your body will love these health benefits:
- 90% of the fat content in pecans is unsaturated fats, which help lower bad ‘LDL’ cholesterol and increase good ‘HDL’ cholesterol.
