November 24, 2004 - Researchers have identified a delightful ally in the fight against chronic disease and aging — pecans.
The Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry reports pecans are among those foods richest in antioxidants; in fact, they contain the most antioxidant capacity of any nut.
To include more pecans in your diet, try sprinkling them on pancakes or waffles, in fruit-flavored yogurt, on cereal, on salads or veggies or as coating for chicken or fish. You also can add them to brownie or cookie recipes.
