SUMMERPLACE PECAN FARMS is back with locally grown organic pecans.   Pecans – the only native American tree nut – have been a tasty favorite for centuries.  Pecans contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals – including vitamin A, vitamin E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins and zinc. One ounce of pecans provides 10 percent of the recommended Daily Value for fiber. Pecans are also a natural, high-quality source of protein that contain very few carbohydrates and no cholesterol. Pecans are also naturally sodium-free, making them an excellent choice for those on a salt- or sodium-restricted diet.  New research, published in the August 2006 issue of Nutrition Research, shows that adding just a handful of pecans to your diet each day may help inhibit unwanted oxidation of blood lipids, thus helping prevent coronary heart disease.  Research published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry (June 2004) found that pecans rank highest among all nuts and are among the top category of foods to contain the highest antioxidant capacity.

Newest Episode of "Out & About with Megan" featuring the Sedona Farmer's Market

By, Megan Aronson

The Sedona Farmer’s Market takes place every Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Airport Mesa lookout. I visited it for the first time last week and was super impressed with the incredible selection of fresh produce and a million other goodies. I took home some yummy tamales, vibrant sunflowers, “ta die for” homemade banana bread from Lisa Dahl of Dahl & DiLuca and scrumptious red potatoes from a local farm. I also tried a Chocolate Peanutbutter Crepe at the Crepe Stand and the best vanilla milkshake I’ve ever had in my life. The offerings change up every week so read ahead for the latest Press Release from the Farmer’s Market on what to look for tomorrow morning! Hope to see you there!
