NUTRITION CHALLENGE

Nuts are high in fiber and protein, and they are loaded with healthy fats, which can help support heart health. One yummy choice when it comes to nuts is pecans. You can eat them raw or dry-roasted (without the salt). Dice them and use them to top salads, granola, or low-fat yogurt. Mix them up with other nuts and dried fruit pieces for homemade trail mix. You can even add them to steamed veggies for a crunchy topping. Or you can eat a small handful of whole pecans for a snack. Opt for nuts with low to no added sugar or salt. What is your favorite nut and how do you like to eat it?
