Savory Pecans

 One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to eat healthier. After indulging in all the Christmas cookies and sweets and big holiday meals, I felt like I needed to go on a sugar detox! My body actually craves more greens and lighter meals if I’ve been eating a bunch of junk and heavy, sugary foods. I feel so much better when I eat better. However, my one downfall and all-time weakness is chips!Savory Pecans
I haven’t found anything that I love more than chips, but in sticking to my New Year’s resolution, I have been trying out different healthy snack ideas. I mixed together some spices and roasted up a batch of these savory pecans. They make a great easy to grab snack or a nice addition to your salad.
Roasting pecans in the oven highlights their flavor and makes them more crunchy! Crunch is a big factor when looking for chip alternatives y’all!Savory Pecans
