How Pecans are good for you

Many of us forget to keep nuts in our diet.  Besides being a great snack, they are a wonderful source of proteins and other nutrients.  Each has it's own specific ingredients and benefits.  I am going to write about some here starting today with Pecans.

Pecans are good for:
Fatigue     Chronic cough     Low back pain     Low libido     Constipation

Do NOT eat when there is diarrhea or very loose stools.

To improve their effect against chronic cough grind fresh pecans into a powder and mix that with ground apricot seeds and honey.  1 tbsp. of each.  Stir this into hot water and drink 2-3 times per day.

For low back pain soak in port wine for 1-2 weeks and eat a palm size quantity each day.

These 2 recipes came from The Tao of Nutrition, by Maoshing Ni & Cathy Mc Nease.  A fantastic book to have in the house. 

Next time Walnuts!
