I LOVE pecans with all of my heart. Out of all of the nuts they are my favourite after macadamias of course. I love them because of they are rich in antioxidants, are a good source of healthy fats, taste amazing and are a decent source of fibre. For more on their benefits have a read of this article. Cardomom is a great addition here because it helps to promote healthy digestion and reduce common digestive complaints such as gas, bloating and belching. We all need that occasionally don't we?
