With Fall taking it’s precious time fully arriving, the cooling, yet still mild temps allow for a few more lighter meals from the summer- SALADS!
While my son considers them ‘mushy apples’ 😒, I, on the contrary admit to being a fan of the shapely pear!
Pears are a great source of fiber, full of antioxidants, are heart healthy and cholesterol lowering- aiding in weight loss. Pears are also known to help in the treatment of diverticulitis.
These juicy treats come in a wide variety of colors and skin textures and are delicious and comforting in tarts, cakes, and pies alike. But I get an extra kick of fiber when they top my ‘Pear Sprouted Salad’!

Remember, SHARING is caring!
